Madness Blog-Con PC 14 – Pierce Brown

Pierce-Brown-Joan-Allen-PhotoSome authors seem like larger than life people. They are intimidating. How can you, starting your career, ever compare to them? How can you get on their level? As great as they are, in truth, they are not too dissimilar to you. The difference is that they are more confident, cocky maybe, and took the plunge to do everything they could to write and make a career out of it. The true difference between an author and a writer is the act of trying.

Today we meet Pierce Brown


Unfortunately there is not much about the author bio. What little I can glean, is that he did a lot of odd jobs in becoming a writer. Set himself for the career of writing and did what he had to, in order to survive so he could make that dream a reality.

I believe at his panel at Comicon, he got a degree in Economics. He stated he was in the banking industry and left because it wasn’t to his liking. He joked that with banking and writing, you are lying either way. Something of which he put into his worldbuilding, and stressed the importance of for all writers.

He stated the Economics is important to Worldbuilding because it is key to how we relate to the world and what causes us to need things.

He published his first book, Red Rising in 2014.

I first met Pierce in the Dystopia vs Utopia panel. He had a lot of good things to say.

I also attended the panel Worldbuilding: Economics panel.

Before I speak of my personal experience with him, I have to say I love his website. I’m sure he didn’t design it, but I would hope he had a lot of input in it. And if you did design it Pierce Brown, you are my God… I mean, that is awesome.

I love his site that even before reading it, I feel immersed in his story. If you haven’t read Red Rising yet, you get a feel for what it is about or what to expect. Honestly, that is what I hope for myself as a writer is a site dedicated to the immersion of my universe.

In meeting with Pierce Brown, I have to say that I instantly liked him. He is fun, energetic, and easy to talk to. I don’t remember what we spoke of, but I liked him so much, I bought his book, then got it signed. Not to take away from other writers I met, I enjoyed meeting all of you.
