I mentioned a while ago that authors are increasingly turning to promotional videos to publicise their works, all of which invariably end up on Youtube (doesn't everything?).
The latest is author of The Redwolf Conspiracy, Robert V. S. Redick. It's always interesting to hear authors discussing their books, and here Redick discusses the influence behind his debut novel and the urge that drove him to write in the first place.
