I don’t know too many people my age who love speculative fiction who did NOT go through that phase where they either read or were urged to read Anne Rice. While I read 3-4 of her books, I have to admit to feeling lukewarm about her characters, and the stories always felt a bit “overmuch.” However, looking back, I am surprised by how much I remember of those novels so many years later. So maybe I shouldn’t scoff. 🙂 Just a few months ago Anne put up a new video with advice for writers. It is 12 minutes long so a bit more in depth than our usual fare over here at Unleaded, but still a fun watch.
