Barnes & Noble Signed Copies

Barnes & Noble Signed Copies

*UPDATE* Thanks everyone who has ordered this. Still three weeks out from publication, and we hit #13 on Barnes & Noble’s Bestseller List! Corollary to that is: I have no idea how many copies are left. If you want to get a signed copy, order soon. 

A few weeks ago, I signed 500 books for Barnes and Noble. Ooohh, signature sheets. (They bind these into the front of the book.) Pretty.

SigSheets1 Sig Sheets 2



Great news, they sold out! So they wanted more. But it was too late to just do signature sheets…

BookBox1



Ah, that doesn’t look so bad.

Book Box 2



Oof. All of them? And you need them when?

 

BrentBooksA

(Party at the Weeks household.)


So I just finished signing 500 more books.  If you’ve been hoping for a signed copy of The Broken Eye but won’t be able to make it to any stops on my TOUR, you can order a signed copy from Barnes & Noble HERE. (And you save 35% off the list price!) There are a limited number of these signed books, so order yours as soon as you can. Also, if you preorder, don’t forget to go HERE to get two free stories and a signed bookplate.

Update: We ran out of the first 1,000 bookplates, but Orbit and I decided to extend that as well. Signed bookplates will now be available for an additional 1,000 preorders, including the US, Canada, UK, and Australia. If you already sent in your address, we added you to the front of the line this time.

The Broken Eye ARC Giveaway

The Broken Eye ARC Giveaway

UPDATE: We have a winner! We’ve just emailed her. Congratulations to Orca Chic! If we don’t hear back from her in the next day or so, we also do have some alternates.

Broken Eye ARC

Because I love my fans, I’m giving away my last ARC (advance reader’s copy) of The Broken Eye. I will ship it anywhere in the world. How do you get a shot at this? Well, I tried to do the giveaway on Facebook, but there were Terms of Service. And lawyers. And possible banning. All because I wanted to give away a book. For free. It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world. So…

If you’re signed up for the Brent Weeks newsletter, you are already entered. If you haven’t signed up for the Brent Weeks newsletter yet, just enter your email in the blue banner at the top of this page in the next 24 hours, and you could win! I will announce the winner and the ship the book tomorrow after 12pm Pacific Standard Time. Good luck!

(I really don’t spam the newsletter list. I only send a few updates a year.)

Brent, Brent, where is this mysterious blue ribbon? I can’t find it anywhere!

Ok, fine, but we’re risking a Level 2 Inception here.

Pre-Order Bonuses

Pre-Order Bonuses

Planning to buy The Broken Eye? Already got the book on order? Awesome. Let me give you free stuff!

Brent with thumbs up

As a special thank-you to those of you who pre-order, I’m giving away a thousand signed bookplates and two brand-new pieces of fiction.

1) From the Lightbringer universe: “GUNNER’S APPRENTICE.” A short story featuring Kip.

2a) From Midcyru: “I, NIGHT ANGEL.” Featuring Kylar. This may be the beginning of a new Night Angel novel.

2b) Prefer audiobooks, or just long to hear the honeyed-gravel tones of my rugged Montana accent? You can either read or listen to me narrate “I, Night Angel.” Or go wild and do both. I don’t judge.

3) Oh, and one more thing. We’re cooking up a new bookplate — that’s a nice sticker to put in the front of your book with custom art on it. For the first thousand people, we’ll mail you one. Signed by me. Free. Postage on us.

You’ll be able to enjoy both stories from your computer, your smart phone, your Kindle Nook, or other e-reader.

To find out how to get your loot, go HERE.*

Haven’t pre-ordered yet???? Go HERE for a long list of retailers.

 

* Currently U.S., U.K., and Canada only. Fuller explanation HERE.
