As some of you may know, the new mass market paperback edition of The Black Prism will have the first couple chapters of the sequel, The Blinding Knife, included. When I told you that, some of you said, “Hey! What about those of us who shilled out for the hardcover? Why shouldn’t WE get to read those chapters?” To which I said, Doh! You should!
The first three chapters of The Blinding Knife will actually be available to you before the paperback readers get to see it. If you head over to The Black Prism Fan Page on Facebook, and “like” it, you’ll get access to that chapter… today. (Look in the left column.) See? I’m not forgetting you! Brent’ll take care of ya.
(And for those of you who despise Facebook or refuse to “Like” things, after the paperback release, my publisher has given me permission to post that chapter here.)
And an update on The Blinding Knife: I have finished the first draft. I didn’t really believe it when I wrote “The End,” so I erased it and rewrote it. Twice. I am now deeply involved with edits. The release is tentatively scheduled for around September 1, 2012.
(Also, another teaser clip should be up on Facebook on Tuesday!)
