Author Interview

LitRPG Podcast 184 - Author Conversation - Vasily Mahanenko

Hello everyone, welcome to episode 184 of the LitRPG podcast. For the full show notes visit us at: https://litrpgpodcast.com/litrpg-podcast-184 


I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  


This week I’m talking to one of the men responsible for the popularization of LitRPG in both Russia and the United States. 


The author of the best selling series The Way of the Shaman series, as well as Galactogon series, Dark Paladin series, and most recently a new Barliona series called : Invasion.  


Welcome Vasily Mahanenko!


For the people that don’t know you, tell us a little about yourself and your background?


You just released a new book set in the same universe as Way of the Shaman, the Barliona Universe, Called Invasion. Tell me a little about it.


Does this story tie into the Way of the Shaman or are there any easter eggs? 


I personally noted the character, Eredani, is on the prisoner program that hides his real identity but he’s actually a veteran player who knows about the Crafting skill exploit. Is he someone famous from the Way of the Shaman series?

  • OMG. He actually answers this question before I even get a chance to ask it!

Give us an insight into your main character, Brody West aka Kvalen. What does he do that is so special?


What are you working on at the minute?

-Co-Authored: Bard of Barlino series

-Edited: Dancing on the Block, by  Marina Barinova 

-Publishing in Russia: Cosimo Yap’s The Gam3 series. How did that go?



Is there anything else you would like to add that I haven’t included?

LitRPG Podcast 147 - Author Interview: Charles Dean

LitRPG Podcast 147 - Author interview: Charles Dean

Dec. 16th, 2018

Hello everyone, welcome to episode 147 of the LitRPG podcast. I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  

Today I have the pleasure of talking to Charles Dean, author of such amazing LitRPG series as:

The Bathrobe Knight  (https://amzn.to/2CeZt7D ),

Merchant of Tiqpa (https://amzn.to/2Bkpn8j ),

and War Aeternus (https://amzn.to/2QAwnIS ).

Now Charles and I have been friends for a while. He and I first started talking when I made a error with the name of one of his series in the review I gave it on the LitRPG Podcast recommendation page. I called it the Bathroom Knight, and he e-mailed me and pointed out that while a story about a a plumber who fought evil would be great, the series was called the Bathrobe Knight. We’ve been friends ever since.

Charles is hands down not only one of the saltiest guys I know, he’s also one of the kindest human beings I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. He’s gone out of his way to help me personally become a better writer by beta reading with brutal honesty and even extended writing resources to me.

As a writer, he’s one of the best in the community, and people love his LitRPG stuff, everything he’s published has an average review score of no less than 4 stars and often it’s closer to 5:

Jessie: “As I sit here writing this review in my own bathrobe, I must smile. This is a good read. “

Mike Garrett: “My biggest disappointment was the lack of available sequel.”

D. Miller: “All hail the Augustus, God of Alcohol and Bacon!”

David: Absolutely loved the Merchant of Tiqpa”


So, thank you so much for being on the podcast man!!
