Library Journal likes me! They really like me!

Or at least they think enough of me to include The Blinding Knife in their “Seven Not to Miss SF/Fantasy Titles for Fall 2012.”

Note that article does have the blurb for The Blinding Knife, which has spoilers for The Black Prism. So, if you haven’t read The Black Prism yet,  just trust me when I say Library Journal thinks I’m the best thing since Dante.

Ok, that might be a lie.

(Also, new poll at right!)

The Blinding Knife — First Three Chapters

The mass market paperback of The Black Prism released this week, and in addition to having a nicely reworked map, the paperback also has a sneak peek into the forthcoming second book of The Lightbringer Trilogy, The Blinding Knife.

I didn’t want the people who bought the hardcover to be left out, so I’ve successfully lobbied Orbit to give us the rights to post the first three chapters of The Blinding Knife here. You can also access it under the “Extras” tab from the main page.

(I should note that The Blinding Knife is slated for a September 2012 release, and that these chapters may see significant revisions between now and then. But if you don’t mind seeing scenes that are hot off the presses, and maybe a smidge rough, please click over here.)

The Blinding Knife Excerpt & Updates

As some of you may know, the new mass market paperback edition of The Black Prism will have the first couple chapters of the sequel, The Blinding Knife, included. When I told you that, some of you said, “Hey! What about those of us who shilled out for the hardcover? Why shouldn’t WE get to read those chapters?” To which I said, Doh! You should!

So…

The first three chapters of The Blinding Knife will actually be available to you before the paperback readers get to see it. If you head over to The Black Prism Fan Page on Facebook, and “like” it, you’ll get access to that chapter… today. (Look in the left column.) See? I’m not forgetting you! Brent’ll take care of ya.

(And for those of you who despise Facebook or refuse to “Like” things, after the paperback release, my publisher has given me permission to post that chapter here.)

And an update on The Blinding Knife: I have finished the first draft. I didn’t really believe it when I wrote “The End,” so I erased it and rewrote it. Twice. I am now deeply involved with edits. The release is tentatively scheduled for around September 1, 2012.

(Also, another teaser clip should be up on Facebook on Tuesday!)
