If you live in the Portland, Oregon area, come join me this Sunday, November 22 at 4pm for the 9th Annual Sci-Fi Authorfest at Powell’s Books Cedar Hills Boulevard. I’ll be there signing books along with 20 other authors, including Devon Monk, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Dean Wesley Smith, Steve Perry, and more!
Brent explains the universe and all its workings. He completely elucidates all the meanings of works like A Song of Ice & Fire, The Lord of the Rings, Hamlet, and even A Princess Bride. To read this post is to have a changed life.
Go HERE for his [Guru Weeks’s?] latest writing [LIFE!] advice!
Now that we’ve had a bit of time to make sure we have our domestic deliveries working properly, we are offering The Black Prism in hardcover (English language, US edition only) for international ordering.
If you want to make sure your book arrives in time for Christmas, please note the below cutoff dates:
November 27 for international delivery / December 10 for U.S. delivery
We can’t guarantee on-time delivery, but we do promise we’ll get them posted in plenty of time on our end. And so lovingly cushioned that we haven’t yet had ANY damaged deliveries on our US orders. I’m also advised that we should tell you your country may have additional taxes or fees on items we ship. I know the postage is pretty extreme for books this heavy, but we’re not padding our numbers. This is the most affordable shipping method available.
One last note: This is the U.S. edition. We don’t have any copies of the U.K. edition available for sale.
While very similar–all the words inside are the same!–here’s how they differ:
Jayne L. will be receiving a signed copy of The Broken Eye in trade paperback, or the new slipcover for The Black Prism (depending on which she chooses.)
Tabitha T. also included this limerick:
As Red brought her granny a book,
She was watched by a wolf in a nook,
What was that he did spy?
It was “The Broken Eye”!
He gave chase and soon stole it…the CROOK!
Red considered the loss with disdain,
“Twas for Granny!”, she loudly proclaimed,
And then with a sigh,
She resolved to not cry,
For at least, she nor granny were maimed.
Wait, that’s not how Red’s story goes,
The young girl must rise o’er her foes,
She arose in the wood,
Ran as fast as she could,
And nabbed her book from under his nose.
She’ll be receiving signed trade paperback copies of The Black Prism, The Blinding Knife, and The Broken Eye — or the new slipcover for The Black Prism!
Kordian Z. will be receiving signed hardcopies of The Black Prism (along with the NEW cover as well as the old cover), The Blinding Knife, and The Broken Eye! He’ll also get the first six chapters of The Blood Mirror.
And here are a few more of the entries we received — we wish we could have picked them all! Because the quality of the submissions were so high, and it was so hard to choose, we will be sending signed bookplates to everyone who submitted an entry.
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.)
