My Valentine’s Day Gift to the world…

My Valentine’s Day Gift to the world…

When I first published The Way of Shadows, I made a joke in the back about ‘Where I get my ideas’ (a question every writer gets–a lot). I said I had no ideas, I just paid a Bulgarian to think them up for me…

Can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had people think I was serious. (How do I get this kind of idea-making-up job? Why a Bulgarian? Aren’t American ideas good enough for you?)

But now I have another reason to not use that joke–because the first two books of the Lightbringer Series is coming to Bulgaria! We’ve also picked up a few other languages. The entire Night Angel trilogy is coming to Brazil, Romania is testing the waters with The Way of Shadows, France picks up Perfect Shadow, and mainland China will be getting the entire Lightbringer Series.

Also, because it’s Valentine’s Day, take this yawning baby hedgehog. No one can be sad when they see a yawning baby hedgehog.

Space City Con 2014

Space City Con 2014

You have a decision to make:


Brent Weeks Author photo medium












So, given that I’m scheduled against the Game of Thrones panel, and I know some of you will accidentally wander into that one, I’ve decided to ADD AN EVENT.

Limited to the first ten people who email me (brent at brent weeks dot com), I’m doing a kaffeeklatsch. What’s a kaffeeklatsch? The eleven of us meet at a restaurant or coffee house, and chat for an hour or two. We can talk publishing, or my books, or how hot Jason Momoa is. No, not that last one. Informal, and a chance to hang out a bit. (Time and day to be determined, I’ll let you know via email.)


Space City Con is happening this Friday through Sunday, January 3-6, in Galveston, Texas. Other authors include Cherie Priest and Larry Correia. So if you’re in Houston, Galveston, or somewhere within driving distance, come check it out!

Go HERE to buy your tickets and HERE to see a complete schedule.

My reading and Q&A will be on Saturday, January 4 in the Garden Cay room from 2:30pm to 3:45pm.
