Check out this amazing fan art. Shaun W.  and Phil B.  created this unique Xbox 360 Controller:

Goodreads: Ask the Author

Goodreads: Ask the Author

ask the author

Do you feel like my FAQ just doesn’t cover the bases? Are you dying to know if I’ll bring back Blue? Want to ask for hints about The Broken Eye? Just want to see what kind of cookies I  like best so you can bring them to a signing (hint hint)?

Good news! Goodreads is rolling out a brand new feature, Ask the Author, which allows you to submit questions on their website. If/when I’m able to respond, you’ll see the question and answer on my Goodreads page. I’ll have this feature turned on when I’m taking questions — and I’ll be sure to announce those times here — and I’ll be starting TODAY. So head on over HERE, scroll down below the “Brent Weeks’s Books” Section to submit questions, and I’ll work on responding to as many as I can this afternoon!

Retailers Still Taking Pre-Orders

Retailers Still Taking Pre-Orders

The Broken Eye HC

Many of you have no doubt heard that Amazon and Hachette are in the middle of contract negotiations. Amazon has increased shipping times, removed discounts, and suspended pre-orders for many Hachette books, including mine. Here is a list of links to retailers who stock my books in the United States.  

This is not an exhaustive list. Feel free to add quality booksellers in the comments. I grabbed ones I have visited personally or that I’ve heard are excellent.

P.S. If you pre-order The Broken Eye from any retailer, U.S. or international, take a quick picture or a screengrab of your receipt. No promises, but I’m trying hard to come up with a nice pre-order bonus for you. I’ll post about that in the future.

locke & key 2


Locke and Key4




Over on Goodreads, Brent’s just posted a long review of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke & Key. See why Brent thinks this series is a must-read (or as he put it: “reading Locke & Key… was like volunteering to be taken to school.”)

On a related note, Goodreads is a great place to keep up-to-date on what Brent’s reading, see his occasional reviews, and take a few quizzes about his books. He’s even posted some lists of the books that inspired him and helped him become a better writer. Brent’s publisher also runs some Goodreads-exclusive giveaways from time to time. You can friend or follow him on Goodreads HERE. (But you don’t need to be a member of Goodreads to read his reviews or see his lists.)

We also have a couple of quizzes based on your knowledge of the Seven Satrapies! (Note: the glossary and character list may be helpful.)

Brent Weeks Takes the Pug Challenge

Brent Weeks Takes the Pug Challenge

A few weeks ago, Justin Landon interviewed Sam Sykes (self-proclaimed Angriest Man on the Internet) over at Rocket Talk. While discussing various important issues in the SFF world, they made the following comments:

Sam: ‘Cause I — it really bugs me when people, like, send me pug pictures. I have a pug. His name is Otis. And he’s awesome. And I post a lot of pictures of him –
Justin: — A lot. –
Sam: — A lot. Because I think he’s awesome and he’s funny-looking and he does strange things. But, you know, people seem to think this means I am like one of those old ladies who has ceramic pugs, and my welcome mat says “Beware of pugs”.
Justin: Have fans sent you pugs?
Sam: Like, pug, like, little…
Justin: Like little porcelain pugs?
Sam: No, no. 
Justin: Can I just say that if anybody listening to this podcast sends Sam a porcelain pug, I will send you something.
Sam: I will send you a bomb!
Justin: If a fan sends you a porcelain pug, I will send that fan a gift.

[You can listen to the podcast HERE — relevant portion is at the 39:47 mark]


Needless to say, I took immediate action:


If you want to see the pug-egg with real Swarovski crystals in all its glory, I’m sure Sam Sykes will be bringing it with him on tour for his forthcoming book, A City Stained Red. Or you can click HERE.

If you just want to be mean to Sam, tweet or FB him, “Pugs leave paw prints on our hearts.” He loves that.

Pawprints on our Hearts

Fantasy authors, nearly as fun as romance writers.
