    Patrick is doing a livestream Q&A session for two hours tonight!! It's from 8-10 our time, but it's a rubbish night to go out, let's be honest...

    Go easy on him, he'll have just finished a skype conversation with me before this... The interview will be posted here as soon as I can transcribe it. Tomorrow, probably!

    You can find it easily on facebook and twitter and if you want to submit a question early, try this link:

    Looking forward to hearing more details.

    I'm happy to send you the 45 minute interview and you transcribe it piece by piece... have to keep stopping and starting the tape, and trying to make myself look not as ridiculous as some of the questions sounded... Working on it as we speak!

    I presume it's not a crime to tidy and edit your questions, as long as they remain true, and Patrick's words remain untouched. :)

    Sorry, I've just looked at my diary and I'm busy for the next 1000 years.

    But did you ask The Question (and more to the point, did he give a date?)

    The question of when the heck is the next Kingkiller book coming out, I assume?

    I am starting to wonder if PR has been taking lessons from GRRM in the art of keeping an audience waiting...:(

    Sorry, I did ask the question and he told me, but the skype link failed at that very moment...;)

    I asked him this (whether he'd want to see it first to check) and he said no, he trusted me to edit accordingly, and to feel free if he spoke a twenty line sentence to break it up with grammatical good sense...
