  • Fantastic. Thanks for posting that, Shawn.

  • Ana Steuart

    The second label should be “Part II of II” not “Park”

    I’m not published yet, but I think that no matter how many novels I produce, I’ll never stop being an Editor.

    Thanks for posting this video; I missed this panel because I was attending the Penguin YA panel two rooms over and showing support for my friend Seanan.

  • Shane S

    Joe is so much cooler than these other authors lol……..Not to discredit there work but he sets there with a swagger while the others set there sweating and farting!

  • Matt

    Joe is the man! Can’t wait for The Heroes.

    anyone catch the names/titles of the two books that Naomi mentioned just after she started to answer the first question (around 5:40 in Part 1)? cheers!

  • I heard her say THE GAME OF THRONES, but I can’t make out the other one.

  • Naomi says “Name of the Wind.”
