Artist Mario Fernandes has some amazing drawings of characters from The Night Angel Trilogy and The Lightbringer Series. You can go HERE to see his depictions of Vi Sovari, Andross Guile, Ironfist, and more.

Mario notes: “Brent Weeks’s writing takes me on a journey so vivid, populated with such compelling characters that I can’t help but explore it further through drawing.”

A reader’s mom wrote me recently:
They “met on a Bart Train in SF California, my son was reading this book and she had just finished it…so she introduced herself….and a love story began. He proposed in a book store [Four-Eyed Frog Books, where he arranged with the store owner to put The Way of Shadows in a place she would find it]. He carved the center out, placed his engagement ring in the center of the book….and when she found it he proposed.”
We all wish you the greatest happiness! Thank you so much to Connie for sharing these stories and the pictures. (And thanks to Four-Eyed Frog Books for facilitating this. Hooray for awesome booksellers!)

Some years you say to yourself, “Sweet! George hasn’t published a book, and Neil hasn’t published a book! Maybe I’ve got a…” and then you see the paranormal fantasy and the fantasy genres have been collapsed into one, and now you’re listed not only among Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, Mark Lawrence, but also Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, and… you just stop reading at that point, because why bother?
On the other hand, I have to say being listed among all these great writers is hugely thrilling and quite an honor. It’s pretty awesome to be mentioned in the same breath with these fantasy greats. So if you want to get a list of great fantasy books to read, click over HERE. And if St. Jude — patron saint of lost causes — is your guy, maybe you can even throw out a vote for me.
