When I need a break in the writing, I will often pop on over to YouTube to wet my beak and let my mind go somewhere else to recharge. One of the many channels I’ve found that I enjoy is Keystroke Medium. It is a YouTube Podcast made by writers, for writers. There are a lot of interviews with other authors and it delves into how the sausage is made, how they got their ideas and how the muse translates into the final product.
One of my favorite interviews was when they sat down with epic fantasy author Davis Ashura. He is an author who merges his medical training and his Indian heritage into his Caste and Outcasts Series. You can definitely see the touches of India’s culture and history throughout his series, which give his fantasy novels a uniqueness that I’ve not found elsewhere. It isn’t the standard Anglo-centric style of world, a trait I greatly appreciate.
Without further adieu, check out the interview! It made me go buy his books, so gird your loins, hide your wallets and watch this video interview!
