Welcome our next Salt Lake Comic Con guest… author Brian McClellan! He is best known for The Powder Mage Trilogy which sold at auction to Orbit Books US. The first two books, Promise of Blood and The Crimson Campaign, are out now with book three, The Autumn Republic, due out in February of 2015. Brian began writing on Wheel of Time role playing websites at fifteen. Encouraged toward writing by his parents, he started working on short stories and novellas in his late teens. He went on to major in English with an emphasis on creative writing at Brigham Young University. It was here he met fellow Salt Lake Comic Con 2014 guest Brandon Sanderson, who encouraged Brian’s feeble attempts at plotting and characters more than he should have.
