After more than a decade teaching history, religion, and philosophy, Brian decided to write epic fantasy. He now lives on a steep dirt road in the hills of southern Vermont, where he divides his time between fathering, writing, husbanding, splitting wood, skiing, and adventuring - not necessarily in that order. He can be found on twitter at @brianstaveley, on Facebook as BrianStaveley, and on Google+ as Brian Staveley. His blog, On the Writing of Epic Fantasy, can be found at: bstaveley.wordpress.com.

Authors (or anyone else, really) who sell things internationally: How did you determine the shipping rates when someone buys something? To be more specific, I'm going to be selling t-shirts on my new website. I'd like a person to be able to pay for the t-shirt and shipping, and then I send it to them. The trouble is, I don't know how much the international shipping charges will be before I go to the PO. Do I really just need to go there and price out twenty different options?

GUEST POST: Strapped to the Couch, by Marc Turner - 11 months ago
Characters are the building blocks of any good book. The events of a story, no matter how dramatic, won’t touch us in a major way unless we care about the characters, and the feelings for those people will hang around long after the clever plot twists fade from memory. How do you make your characters […]
GUEST POST by Joe Pace: Paper or Plastic; Notebooks, Keyboards, and the Writer’s Brain - one year ago
The debate chirps on between the print-mongers and the hip cats with their Kooks and Nindles. I’ve always been a print man; I can’t bring myself to read anything more than a newspaper article on a screen. Even that, I suppose, is a concession, and selling books in digital format has forced me to accept […]
