The Blinding Knife is now available in Spanish (as La Daga de la Ceguera) — if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy, go HERE to buy one today. You can check out the new imprint, Fantascy, that published La Daga de la Ceguera HERE.They have lots of other great fantasy titles as well.

Brent has also given an interview to Spanish-language book blog La Espada en la Tinta. To read about how having a daughter has changed his writing routine, how Night Angel came to have such cinematic pacing, and whether he would ever write in another genre, go HERE.

**UPDATE: Per the comment below (thank you, Loren!) La Espada en la Tinta has graciously posted the original interview in English on their webpage, just after the Spanish-language version!**

Finally, if you don’t speak Spanish and you’d like to read this or other interviews Brent has done in your non-native language, we hope the following will help. Though there are plenty of translation options available online, the relevant links below may help you get started automatically translating foreign webpages — including Brent’s interviews!

David Gemmell Legend Award 2013

David Gemmell Legend Award 2013

The David Gemmell Legend Awards are something akin to the People’s Choice Awards of Fantasy. It’s an award selected by YOU–in a pure, straight up vote. Like democracy itself, there are reasons not to like that, and reasons to like it a lot. I think it fills a previously empty niche in the awards pantheon, and gives fans a chance to have their voices heard directly. I have twice been eligible for the DGLA (all the Night Angel books came out in one year), have twice made the short list, and have twice been given the mini-Snaga of Not Quite. Don’t get me wrong: I love my mini-Snagas. LOVE. How much do I love my mini-Snagas?

Crime in Oregon

But, MAN, I would love to win the Big Boy Hisself:

Snaga

Every time this award comes around, I regret anew that David Gemmell passed away before I could make his acquaintance. His novels are the slender tomes of his era, but they’re full of fast action and deep, conflicted, wounded characters–who are also badasses. I like to think that in The Blinding Knife I’ve written a novel worthy of David Gemmell’s legacy.

The voting goes in two rounds: the longlist, and then the finalists move on to the shortlist.

The Longlist Voting is open now and will close July 31st. Go check it out, vote for your favorite (me, me, me!), and add some great books to your To Be Read pile.
