UPDATE: Chapters 1-9 are now available HERE!
In the lead up to publication of The Broken Eye, we’ll be releasing the first 50 pages (chapters 1-9!) on Wattpad. (Wattpad is a writing community where users can post articles, stories, poems and includes work by both published and new writers.)
The first five chapters of The Broken Eye are available today. More chapters will be released over the next few days. Go HERE to follow Brent’s Wattpad account and read the excerpts.
*UPDATE* Thanks everyone who has ordered this. Still three weeks out from publication, and we hit #13 on Barnes & Noble’s Bestseller List! Corollary to that is: I have no idea how many copies are left. If you want to get a signed copy, order soon.
A few weeks ago, I signed 500 books for Barnes and Noble. Ooohh, signature sheets. (They bind these into the front of the book.) Pretty.
Great news, they sold out! So they wanted more. But it was too late to just do signature sheets…
Ah, that doesn’t look so bad.
Oof. All of them? And you need them when?
So I just finished signing 500 more books. If you’ve been hoping for a signed copy of The Broken Eye but won’t be able to make it to any stops on my TOUR, you can order a signed copy from Barnes & Noble HERE. (And you save 35% off the list price!) There are a limited number of these signed books, so order yours as soon as you can. Also, if you preorder, don’t forget to go HERE to get two free stories and a signed bookplate.
Update: We ran out of the first 1,000 bookplates, but Orbit and I decided to extend that as well. Signed bookplates will now be available for an additional 1,000 preorders, including the US, Canada, UK, and Australia. If you already sent in your address, we added you to the front of the line this time.
Have you been looking for something to read while you wait for The Broken Eye to be released? Brent has some recommendations. Go HERE to see his Top 10 Fantasy books– classics, modern masters, upstarts, and tongue-in-cheek.
And while you’re at it, if you’d like a signed copy of The Broken Eye, Barnes & Noble is selling those HERE.
Because I love my fans, I’m giving away my last ARC (advance reader’s copy) of The Broken Eye. I will ship it anywhere in the world. How do you get a shot at this? Well, I tried to do the giveaway on Facebook, but there were Terms of Service. And lawyers. And possible banning. All because I wanted to give away a book. For free. It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world. So…

Brent, Brent, where is this mysterious blue ribbon? I can’t find it anywhere!
Ok, fine, but we’re risking a Level 2 Inception here.

Do you feel like my FAQ just doesn’t cover the bases? Are you dying to know if I’ll bring back Blue? Want to ask for hints about The Broken Eye? Just want to see what kind of cookies I like best so you can bring them to a signing (hint hint)?
Good news! Goodreads is rolling out a brand new feature, Ask the Author, which allows you to submit questions on their website. If/when I’m able to respond, you’ll see the question and answer on my Goodreads page. I’ll have this feature turned on when I’m taking questions — and I’ll be sure to announce those times here — and I’ll be starting TODAY. So head on over HERE, scroll down below the “Brent Weeks’s Books” Section to submit questions, and I’ll work on responding to as many as I can this afternoon!
Many of you have no doubt heard that Amazon and Hachette are in the middle of contract negotiations. Amazon has increased shipping times, removed discounts, and suspended pre-orders for many Hachette books, including mine. Here is a list of links to retailers who stock my books in the United States.
This is not an exhaustive list. Feel free to add quality booksellers in the comments. I grabbed ones I have visited personally or that I’ve heard are excellent.
P.S. If you pre-order The Broken Eye from any retailer, U.S. or international, take a quick picture or a screengrab of your receipt. No promises, but I’m trying hard to come up with a nice pre-order bonus for you. I’ll post about that in the future.
