Brent has an Reddit AMA going on today over at r/Fantasy. Go ask him (almost) anything HERE.
Just for today, you can pre-order the audio edition of The Broken Eye from Audible UK for just £3.99! You do need an Audible membership, but go HERE to pre-order.
You can now pre-order the audiobook of The Broken Eye in the U.S. through Audible.com! As with The Blinding Knife, the multi-everything award-winning Simon Vance is narrating. (How good is he? Neil Gaiman calls him “the gold standard of narrators”.)
Go HERE to place your order.
UPDATE: Chapters 1-9 are now available HERE!
In the lead up to publication of The Broken Eye, we’ll be releasing the first 50 pages (chapters 1-9!) on Wattpad. (Wattpad is a writing community where users can post articles, stories, poems and includes work by both published and new writers.)
The first five chapters of The Broken Eye are available today. More chapters will be released over the next few days. Go HERE to follow Brent’s Wattpad account and read the excerpts.
Brent has an extensive new interview over at Fantasy Faction — probably his longest interview ever! Find out the answers to questions about the Nine Kings game, Brent’s thoughts on e-publication and the novella, what Brent’s goal is as a writer, and more.
P.S. Brent would like to thank Marc Aplin and Fantasy Faction for all their fine contributions to discussions in the genre.
*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.
Great news, they sold out! So they wanted more. But it was too late to just do signature sheets…
Ah, that doesn’t look so bad.
Oof. All of them? And you need them when?
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.
Have you been looking for something to read while you wait for The Broken Eye to be released? Brent has some recommendations. Go HERE to see his Top 10 Fantasy books– classics, modern masters, upstarts, and tongue-in-cheek.
And while you’re at it, if you’d like a signed copy of The Broken Eye, Barnes & Noble is selling those HERE.
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.
Planning to buy The Broken Eye? Already got the book on order? Awesome. Let me give you free stuff!
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.
