Just a Few Copies Left: Perfect Shadow (signed)

UPDATE: The Signed Page has sold out of all their regular signed copies, but the store has a few copies with minor damage available — for a discount!

Barnes & Noble has sold out of all their signed copies of Perfect Shadow, but over at The Signed Page, there are a few copies left! Go HERE to pick up yours.

Contest: #BattleWornBooks

To celebrate the launch of Perfect Shadow in hardcover, we’re giving fans a chance to win 5 brand-new, author-signed sets of The Night Angel Trilogy. The contest is open to U.S. and international fans. One grand prize winner will receive a special signed book from Brent’s personal collection. (Hint: It’ll be one of Brent’s books, not his cherished old Calvin and Hobbes Treasury. Probably. He lies to CAPSLOCK, too.)

Via Twitter or Facebook, post a photo of your favorite, most-loved, battle-worn Night Angel book (or set of books) using the hashtag #BattleWornBooks and a line or two about how the book got that way. We’d love to see some creative scenery or settings (though no digital enhancement, please).

If you’re that one person, who brought in that super bloody book that I signed? You should totally submit that. Also, I’m never signing an actually bloody book again. I was young and foolish then.

Oh, and don’t beat up your book just to win this contest…. I mean, unless you’re going to go out and buy new copies afterward. Then you should DEFINITELY beat up your book just to win this contest.

More details.

Loot: 

1 Person will receive a signed REDACTED… Secret thing. But it’s good. Seriously. You trust me, right? All plot twists are happy plot twists in Weeks-world, right?

5 People Will Win Brand-New Author-Signed Sets of The Night Angel Trilogy.

Rules:

1. Entries may be submitted starting today until Tuesday, November 14th at 3pm Pacific Standard Time

2. Entry must include:

a) a picture of your favorite Night Angel book

b) a one or two sentence description, maybe why it looks like this, or where it’s been.

c) #BattleWornBooks

3. International entries are allowed and encouraged!

4. Some photo editing is fine:  think enhancement, not special effects.

5. You can only win once–but three books, so it’s like winning three times. Three times is enough.

6. If you email rather than post to Twitter or Facebook, the subject line of the email should read: #battlewornbooks

7. If you choose to use email, address the email to elisa at brentweeks dot com. (no spaces; and as in previous years, Brent will be selecting the winners).

8. Other: Brent will judge the photos and will select the six winners in no particular order of awesomeness. You must be 18 or older to win (younger participants are welcome, but by law I can’t give you a prize). No purchase is necessary. Odds of winning are based on the number of entries, but definitely higher if you submit. We will notify winners via Twitter, Facebook or email depending on how you submitted the photo. You must respond within 7 days, or another winner will be chosen. That would be sad. For you. They’d be happy. So maybe the net happiness would be neither increased nor decreased. We could try it out if you win.

9. Winners will be announced on Monday, November 20th.

Number 2 on BN.com

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.


Number 3 on BN.com

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:

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!

(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.)
