The Way of Shadows Graphic Novel Character Sketches

by CAPSLOCK

Over at the Brent Weeks Facebook page, we’re rolling out new sketches of Night Angel characters each week — and letting you guess who they are. (For a number of good reasons, Brent’s publisher has chosen to reveal these on Facebook first, but for those of you who don’t do Facebook, we’ll be posting all the sketches here at a one-week delay.)

Go HERE to check out the newest sketches! And “like” the page to stay up-to-date on this and other Brent Weeks news.

Here’s last week’s sketch of Doll Girl & Jarl:

New Interview at the Fan Forum

New Interview at the Fan Forum

by CAPSLOCK

Brent has just given a new interview over at the Brent Weeks Fan Forum. Brent answers some questions about what could be next after Lightbringer and the next Night Angel series, which character he would be if he could play a part in a Night Angel movie, and why he is so cruel to his characters. Big thanks to fan Alderan, who put together the questions and posted them!

Check it out HERE.

Fan Art (or Tattoos!) Round-up

Fan Art (or Tattoos!) Round-up

Do you have some Lightbringer or Night Angel fan art  or tattoos you’d like to share? Have you been hoping to show off your drawings of Teia? The Color Prince? Or are you eager to show off your ka’kari tattoo/real ka’kari*?

If so, we’ll be doing a fan art and tattoo roundup on the website. We have  a few entries already and would love some more!

Send your original artwork to CAPSLOCK @ brentweeks.com (no spaces) by Monday, July 8th at 5pm Pacific Standard Time. We’ll be sharing the fan art over the next month (thanks to Peter V. Brett for the great idea).

In addition, one fan artist at random will receive a free signed copy of the new Black Prism trade paperback, due out July 23rd, and we’ll also be giving away whatever assorted goodies we can come up with.

*If you have a real ka’kari, I’m still in the market for silver, brown, blue, and green.

Lightbringer 3 Writing Update, Title, etc.

Lightbringer 3 Writing Update, Title, etc.

I know I promised you a writing update in September, and I hate to break my word, but here’s a quick update early. I have finished writing the first draft of Lightbringer 3 and we now have a title!

Lightbringer 3 will be called The Broken Eye.

The coming months will be full of editing for me. First, large-scale revisions on my own, then it goes to my editor and we begin the many rounds of work there. As I said before, barring any changes and subject to the almighty publishing schedule, publication will most likely be summer 2014.

Last, as some of you have noticed, I’ve not been posting my monthly writing advice column as I’ve been  spending all my time trying to finish Lightbringer 3. This will probably continue for a month or two, but after I’ve been doing edits for a few months, I’m sure I’ll have lots to say, so it will return sometime this summer. (Thanks for your patience on this. I’m just trying to prioritize what’s most important to most of you.)

When I’ve finished all the substantive edits and/or we have a firm release date for The Broken Eye, I will post another  update on that.

Thanks to all the dedicated fans who voted via Twitter, Facebook and comments on BookSpot Central, The Blinding Knife beat King of Thorns in a crushing victory. It wasn’t even close. I dominated: 50.7% to 49.3%. Okay, maybe I was nervous for a second or two.

And because CAPSLOCK likes it when I quote myself:
