Dan Wells (author of the John Cleaver series, Partials, and the Hollow City, just to name a few) stops by to talk to Ben and Guillermo about stuff! Not a whole lot of writing topics covered this time around (mostly just Ben making awkward statements about religion) but we will make up for that next week when we talk to Dan again (if he agrees to keep associating with us). Follow Dan on Twitter: @thedanwells and look at his shiny web site here: TheDanWells.com. Enjoy, and WRITE!

Then Ben and Guillermo talk about killing off characters and the one character you NEVER want to kill off. Enjoy, and WRITE!
