Video Interview with Buffy author Nancy Holder about her career, working with the Slayer. Also includes a few Joss anecdotes.

Thank you so much for this link. This is a great interview, one of the best I have ever heard. Holder is intelligent, affable, and a real Buffy fan. I have never read any of her books, but now I may. All in all I really like her after hearing her speak.She is so down to earth as well as being an intelligent and accomplished writer.
Wow. I just fell in love with her... she sounds like an amazing writer who is extremely passionate about her work. I haven't read any of her work, but I think I'll start. I might not try any of her Buffy novels - just because I'm a sucker for canon- but her writing portfolio is huge. I think I'll try to Wicked series first.
Kessie, thank you so much for sharing this here. I have to say, of all of the people I've interviewed for SlayerLit, Nancy might just be my favorite...she really is just as nice as she seems in the video.

If you're looking for some of Nancy's BtVS writing to sample, I recommend the 2nd and (soon to be released) 3rd volumes in the new Buffy compilation books from Simon & Schuster. Just 9.99 each with three full novels collected in each volume. And if you're looking for non-Buffy work from her, I strong recommend either the Wicked series, or the newly-released Crusade (which fans of the Vampire Slayer ought to take to very quickly).
I know canon is a important thing, but sometimes, a good story is too. if you would like to try, there are a collection of Buffy books called Tales of The Slayer (not the comics Tales of the Slayers), that I read only a couple of great extracts.

She, of course, co-authored the very first original Buffy novel, and she wrote one of the very…... for now... last books.

Shiai, is there some news about new books?
Nothing new, other than that when I spoke with an S&S editor earlier this year, she said that if the new omnibi sell well enough, the publisher will most definitely consider launching a line of new novels. And as Nancy mentioned in the interview, she's been pushing for that with the publisher, too.
