I met the publishers from Tyche Books last Fall at “When Words Collide”. They talked about a new book they had coming out called “What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank”. The non-fiction book was going to talk about food throughout the ages with an eye to helping Fantasy and other Speculative Fiction writers add realism to their work. They were very excited about the book and, I must confess, I was looking forward to reading the final product.
You will hear my review of the book today.
I also got the opportunity to interview the book’s author, Krista D Ball. We talked about a number of things including the book itself, the differences between fiction and non-fiction writing, research and, how to never make a bet about your book when you are drunk.
It was a fun conversation that I think you will get a lot out of.
That’s today’s episode. I hope you enjoy it.
