Joe Abercrombie answers your questions: Part 1

Last week we asked you for your questions for Joe Abercrombie and he liked them so much, instead of just five questions, he answered almost of them! So here’s the first batch of questions and answers for you – the second batch will be coming up later on this week.

Sean asked: Was Half a King a deliberate departure into YA?

Natalie asked two questions: How does Half a King differ from your other books and What was your inspiration for this book?

Claire asked: Are there going to be any recurring characters in future books?

Luke asked: Could we see any standalone novels based in this universe?

Thank you everyone for your questions, and thank you Joe for letting us point a camera at you to answer them! Look out for batch two coming on Friday.

Half a King is released 3rd July 2014. Find out where you can pre-order here.
