Real Life Promo Roundup

Let’s start with the fun part: A Real Life Fantasy Condor.

The photo is from an article in New Scientist magazine. Stealth glider made out of special polymer self-destructs in sunlight. I’ve never considered whether luxin was a polymer before now. A 30-second Google search confirms in my mind that it couldn’t be anything but.

“Then the luxin hardened in its shape, which was as much like a condorā€™s wings as Gavin had been able to manage. The wings caught the air, and Karris and Gavin shot into the sky.

The first time Gavin had attempted it, heā€™d tried to hold one wing in each hand. Heā€™d learned then why birds have hollow bones and weigh almost nothing. The lift had nearly torn his arms off. Heā€™d gone home wet, bruised, and angry, with most of the muscles in his arms and chest torn. By making the condor all one piece instead, heā€™d taken away the need for muscle at all. The whole thing flew on the strength and flexibility of the luxin, speed, and wind.

Of course, it didnā€™t really fly. It glided. Heā€™d tried to use the reeds, but it hadnā€™t worked so far. For the time being, the condor had a limited range.

Karris wasnā€™t complaining. She was wide-eyed. ā€œGavin! Orholam, Gavin, weā€™re flying!ā€ She laughed, carefree.”

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 BlackĀ Prism in hardcoverĀ (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 /Ā 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.

OneĀ last note:Ā Ā 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 merchandiseĀ 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.)
