Interview with Jordan Ifueko, author of Raybearer

| E:471

Ep. #471 - On today's episode, Adam interviews Jordan Ifueko, debut author of Raybearer. Her book is being compared to Tomi Adeyemi and Sabaa Tahir and rightfully so. They discuss how her small class growing up affected her story, how her loneliness led to creating world-building and character development, figuring out how to set timelines when there are large passages of time, and so much more.
