This was a wonderful informative and entertaining discussion. I had so much fun. Pierce has an easy going and charming personality.
I took a lot of notes so I’ll get started and share some photos I took.
My sister and I showed up right after work, bought our books and waited on the queue for the events room.
A woman on the queue with us went around and handed out a notebook with the Sons of Ares symbol and a Morning Star keychain that she made herself. Cute.
There were about 10 to 15 people ahead of us so when we entered the room it was easy to pick the seats we wanted. We sat in the center of the second row.
The discussion was led by Pierce’s editor Mike Braff. They made a joke that Mike already knows the answers to his list of questions but I think that makes the q&a more relaxed and allows for more spontaneity.
One of the first things discussed is that Pierce is working on a new trilogy called Iron Gold. USA Today broke the story that it is set in the Red Rising world and what happens after the fall of an empire.
Warning: There are a couple of spoilers below the cut for Red Rising.
