I’m going live basically right now to answer questions over at Reddit’s subforum r/Books. If you have a question that I haven’t answered or that you’d like to see if I answer it again in some different way, please come and join us and ask your questions. Or just lurk.
Any questions I don’t get to tonight I will try to revisit tomorrow, although I generally tap out after about 20 hours. Hope to see you there!
(Note my very scholarly and serious proof picture.)
We had many excellent entries! Thanks so much for the joy your entries have brought us. (And thanks, much less, for the pain in having to narrow it down to these few winners.)
The top five winners will each receive a brand new dust jacket for the hardcover edition of The Black Prism or a signed trade paperback of The Broken Eye, their choice.
The Top Five Winners:
There once was a man named Gavin,
Surprised by a son he was havin’.
And though his boy Kip
Had thick head and foul lip,
He eventually was glad he had him.
Do YOU yearn to skillfully smack hard?
Then hey kids, sign up for the Blackguard!
The training’s sheer bliss
For all masochists
You’re bound to get face, limbs or back scarred.
– Lisa H.
There once was a man named Hanishu
Whose last words were “which man are you?”
He fought his brother last,
could have kicked his ass
When he should have kicked his uncle’s too.
– Katelyn B.
A man from Cenaria City
A wetboy, focused and gritty
Used kakari for good
Lived all that he could
His friends died instead, what a pity
— Amber S.
I’d have to go with Miss Sovari
Elene is too timid and scarry
Kirena’s too old;
On Vi I am sold
All I need now’s a White Ka’kari
– Chad Z.
And two Honorable Mention:
For a good book Quentin did look,
A tale with a riveting hook.
So out popped Sam Sykes,
As Naheed did say, “Yikes!”
To which Sam replied, “Buy my book.”
– Thomas G.
(Included because you can’t win twice!)
To pretend you’re Gavin, not Dazen,
Is extraordinarily brazen.
To fool the whole world,
Including your girl,
Is nothing short of amazin’.
– Lisa H.
The official Brent Weeks web store is now open!
Our first product is signed hardcover copies from the first printing of The Black Prism. With your purchase, we’ll include a free copy of the new Black Prism dust jacket with your order! (So you won’t miss that Gavin smolder.)
We don’t currently have international shipping as an option; we hope to add that within a few months.
You can also access the Museum Replicas store for Night Angel merchandise via the web store.
This is a new endeavor for us, and while we think we’ve planned well and it should go flawlessly–books packaged to arrive in excellent condition, pay orders smoothly processed, and shipping handled with speed–it IS a new area for us. We will be making changes to the store as we become familiar with the process, so bear with us if we aren’t perfect immediately. (Or, you know, call for CAPSLOCK’s resignation. Angrily. Start a petition on Change.org. She probably deserves it.)
