Does the Divine Breath's Healing work with someone without a Breath (like a Drab or someone not from Nalthis)?
Yes, this would work.
What do you think of the New Adult category?
I'm reserving judgement. If the readership likes it, then it will take off. If not, oh well.
Darn! I was hoping you'd say you loved it. Everything I write (almost) is NA. :)
I think it's a cool category; I'm just not convinced that the public is embracing it.
Atium is the best metal to use for Hemalurgy. Does *burning* atium help you figure out where to put the spikes?
Anything that gets you a glimpse of the Spiritual Realm could help with placing spikes.
Would flaring iron and steel also help?
No, not without additional help.
Did you have the ending planned out for the Reckoners series when you started writing?
Then I build a series around the ideas and themes that worked in the first book.
I had the ending of the first book well in mind. Once I finished it, I sat down and plotted the next two books.
This is very common for me in a series. Writing the first book, making sure I have the characters and ideas down first.
Any plans for any adaptations in the near future?
If, by this, you mean film adaptations--we're trying very hard. Unfortunately, it's up to Hollywood more than it is me.
Would you prefer film or TV adaptations? (If the choice was magically yours)
Depends on the series. I'd like to see Mistborn and The Reckoners as film, Stormlight and Wax and Wayne as TV.
