Re: promoting your name and your book

Steve Bein on Japanese history and culture

What was the inspiration for the Fated Blades? The Fated Blades were born out of a dream, actually. (That’s the worst way to start a book, by the way; far better to start with, say, an outline and some characters.) This dream happened while a typhoon was raking my neighborhood in Nagoya, Japan.
