Hold up, who’s that guy hanging with Harry Potter? Hey look everybody!

Granted, it’s a book about Harry Potter…. So maybe I’m not hanging with his Pot-ness Himself, but I’m hanging with someone who’s hung out with Harry? That could be cool!

Or it could be Dolores Umbridge. Ok. Less excited now.

And still on the list the next day! Well, la di da, who do I think I am, hanging out with Harry and Hillary Clinton?

I can’t help but notice she pushed me down a spot. Excu–Secreta–I– Never mind.

Yes, I live near Portland, so yes, I can see there’s a Bernie Sanders joke nearby, but I’m not touching that with a ten-foot poll. (You didn’t think you were getting out of here without at least a pun, did you?)

Seriously, though, thank you so much for your excitement about this novella. I know the time between my novels seems long for many of you (2 years each so far, and I’m striving to keep that pace!), but I want you to know it’s a long time for me too. Seeing readers connect with these stories and be eager to dive back into these worlds (albeit briefly this time!) is really affirming. Thank you for putting my work on such a list at all. It’s a privilege to be given the opportunity to write, and a rare gift to get to do it full time. Thank you!

In case you missed it before, you can find the limited signed edition of PERFECT SHADOW HERE. Or pre-order a (non-signed) hardcover from your favorite vendor:

IndieBound
Chapters
Waterstones

For International Customers looking for a signed edition, click HERE. Otherwise, you should be able to get the hardcover through your regular channels.

New Hardcover: PERFECT SHADOW–even signed!

The novella prequel to the Night Angel trilogy,  PERFECT SHADOW is now available for pre-order in a beautiful new hardcover edition! This novella–it’s not a full-length novel!–has previously been available as an ebook and audiobook, so this edition is meant for those of you who prefer to read a book on paper, and enjoy another gorgeous cover gracing your shelves and completing your collection. (If you prefer digital or want to check out a sample before the November 7th publication date of the hardcover, the digital versions remain available, and still for the same low prices.)

Also included will be a bonus short story (“I, Night Angel”) that’s never before been published in physical format. If you’d like to hear more about why I chose to publish this now (or, heck, at all!), fill in your email in the banner above to get my newest newsletter and hear all the gory details. (I send only about 4 notes each year.)

Here’s the blurb:

Discover the origins of Durzo Blint in this original novella set in the world of Brent Weeks’ New York Times bestselling Night Angel trilogy.

“I got a bit of prophecy,” the old assassin said. “Not enough to be useful, you know. Just glimpses. My wife dead, things like that to keep me up late at night. I had this vision that I was going to be killed by forty men, all at once. But now that you’re here, I see they’re all you. Durzo Blint.”

Durzo Blint? Gaelan had never even heard the name.

***
Gaelan Starfire is a farmer, happy to be a husband and a father; a careful, quiet, simple man. He’s also an immortal, peerless in the arts of war. Over the centuries, he’s worn many faces to hide his gift, but he is a man ill-fit for obscurity, and all too often he’s become a hero, his very names passing into legend: Acaelus Thorne, Yric the Black, Hrothan Steelbender, Tal Drakkan, Rebus Nimble.

But when Gaelan must take a job hunting down the world’s finest assassins for the beautiful courtesan-and-crimelord Gwinvere Kirena, what he finds may destroy everything he’s ever believed in.

(Because I’m weird, PERFECT SHADOW is set before the events of The Night Angel trilogy, but is best read afterward.)

SIGNED COPIES!

For those of you who love books defaced by the actual physical pen of the author, in the US, Barnes & Noble is doing a special print run of signed copies, and I’m delighted that Barnes & Noble is going to be offering these for no additional cost! (To you. My hand is really tired.) These will be available exclusively through BN.com–so please don’t haunt your friendly local B&N asking for copies if you miss out!  Pre-orders start today, but stock is limited. (Those will ship on publication date, November 7th.)

Announcing International Orders!

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

CLICK HERE TO ORDER

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:

Announcing the Brent Weeks Web Store

The official Brent Weeks web store is now open!

Our first product is signed hardcover copies from the first printing of The Black Prism. With your purchase, we’ll include a free copy of the new Black Prism dust jacket with your order! (So you won’t miss that Gavin smolder.)

two dust jackets Black Prism

We don’t currently have international shipping as an option; we hope to add that within a few months.

You can also access the Museum Replicas store for Night Angel merchandise via the web store.

This is a new endeavor for us, and while we think we’ve planned well and it should go flawlessly–books packaged to arrive in excellent condition, pay orders smoothly processed, and shipping handled with speed–it IS a new area for us. We will be making changes to the store as we become familiar with the process, so bear with us if we aren’t perfect immediately. (Or, you know, call for CAPSLOCK’s resignation. Angrily. Start a petition on Change.org. She probably deserves it.)

In Which Our Hero Encounters The New York Times…

Woo hoo! It looks like the hometown kid made good. Making the transition from paperback to hardcover is a bit scary: Will anyone think a Brent Weeks book is worth 25 bones? Well, it seems that some people do. Enough people, in fact, to make the Gray Lady notice.

The Black Prism debuted on The New York Times best seller list at number 23.

Last time, with the mass market paperback, I reached my apogee at number 29, so I’m very pleased. Of course, the printed list only shows up to 15, so if you go hunting my name, you’ll actually need a computer. But hey, look at this, you have a computer right in front of you! Marvelous! See that thingy near your hand? Use it to point HERE.
