Scott went on a question-answering rampage on his tumblr account–to our greatest delight! Here is a list of discussed topics:
– Don Salvara’s feud
– Therin calendar (question by yours truly)
– medicine and remedies
– returning characters here and here
– “coming attractions” (mild spoilers)
– pronunciation of “Sabetha” and “Jean”
Scott has recently posted a few updates on his tumblr account. One of them concerns the release date of the Gentleman Bastards sequence’s next opus, The Thorn of Emberlain. Progress on the book is still going well. Scott expects it to be released in mid-to-late 2015.
Other topics include gentling, the Wicked Sisters, hardcovers, touring, and TV/movie adaptation. Enjoy!
