Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! Today we’re looking back at fan mail–specifically the very first fan letter written about Night Angel.
Here’s a fun video we took of me opening up a box of author copies of the Super Special Night Angel 10th Anniversary All-Black Hardcover Omnibus, with their pristine, non-smearing slipcovers.
*There aren’t any unofficial NAT omnibus unboxing videos out there that I know of. Yet.
Just here to let you all know that the 2018 BATTLEWORN BOOKS Competition is officially CLOSED. We will be collecting all of the entries around social media and in our email, Brent is going to take a look at them, and we will post the list of winners by next Monday, November 12, 7 AM PST.
Thank you for all of your excellent submissions!
It’s Thursday again, and we’re looking back at the early editing process for Night Angel #2 & #3, SHADOW’S EDGE and BEYOND THE SHADOWS, respectively.
-The BATTLEWORN BOOKS competition ends tomorrow.
-The official on-sale date for the 10th Anniversary omnibus is November 13.
-The webstore is now open, and t-shirts & books will be available for the entire month.
Thank you, everyone!
Y’all have been asking for Brent Weeks stuff lately, and we have great news: the Shopify store is back!
Take note–we will be open for one month only, Nov 1 – Nov 30. Stock is limited, so grab your t-shirts and books while you can. Get your holiday shopping done early! *wink*
There’s a link to the store HERE, and we will be adding a widget at the top of the home page here on the official website…
This week we are featuring a fun #BattleWornBooks competition photo from Dave. It doesn’t qualify as an entry, but we enjoy his effort and creativity. We’re guessing he has spent a fair bit time on Fark, dominating the Photoshop contests…
You can check out Dave’s Instagram page for more images, etc.
Also, remember: there’s still time to enter the BattleWorn Books competition to win a copy of the new 10th Anniversary omnibus, plus some sweet Night Angel swag!
Good news–the Night Angel TBT posts are back, as we get ready for the release of the 10th Anniversary omnibus!
Remember, it’s not too late to enter the BattleWorn Books competition. You have until Friday, November 2, 2018 to send those Night Angel books into battle, take a photo, and send it along to us!
Our friend Jared (better known as kylarguile on Instagram) made these really lovely bookmarks to celebrate the upcoming release of the Night Angel 10th Anniversary omnibus.
Jared maintains the (unofficial) Brent Weeks fan page over on Instagram, and has shared some pretty sweet fan art with us in the past. Most importantly, he is giving away at least one of these bookmarks! Head over to Instagram now for a chance to snag one!
And before you ask, yes, Stonecypher is his real, awesome last name. How do I know? I asked, of course.
I’m sure you’re all familiar with Barnes & Noble’s 3 for $30 promo, yes?
Here’s the deal: For a limited time, you can buy the first three Lightbringer books, in paperback, from www.barnesandnoble.com, bundled as 3 for $30. The promo is online only, and lasts until November 6, 2018. Head over to the B&N website and snag them while you can!
Surprise! I answered some more fan questions. Two months in a row!
The Facebook Q&R is embedded below for your enjoyment.
I also have a note about this video that I wanted to share. Around 1:30, I talk about biological versus adoptive parents. I used the phrase “real parents” intending obvious air quotes—the first time or so. I sort of lost that denotation as I referenced that a few more times and was thinking about other things. My point—which I hope I didn’t clumsily obscure—is that adoptive parents absolutely are real parents. Forgive my infelicitous phrasing around what can be a tender point.”
