We heard a rumor that you’re looking for a retailer who will let you pre-order a signed copy of THE BURNING WHITE.
Look no further! Below is the list of booksellers who will have limited quantities of signed stock (with the fancy designed page in front).
These beauties are selling like hotcakes, so politely inquire with your favorite friendly bookseller what is available for pre-order. Please note that since some of these are tour stops, you should specify which edition you are looking for when asking about availability (the pre-signed fancy-paged edition, or the not-yet-signed but gonna-show-up-for-the-man-himself-to-sign edition).
If there are any updates or changes, they’ll be noted right here. Go forth, minions!
These stores have ordered stock of the signed editions with the special inscription plate. Stop-in or call for details before ordering – the editions listed on their websites may not be the signed ones. If the listing is marked with a (*), make sure to specify that you’re looking for the pre-signed edition. Alexander Book: San Francisco, CA www.alexanderbook.com
UPDATE: The JordanCon Silent Auction was a HUGE success this year! The naming rights went to Sam Baskin, and the $750 bid will benefit the Dennis and Donna Oldorf Hospice House of Mercy in Iowa. Thanks so much Sam! His character will make an appearance in THE BURNING WHITE as Rivvyn Shmuel; the book is available for pre-order NOW, and is set to be released on October 22!
Here’s your chance to become a character in an upcoming novel by New York Times Bestselling author & 2019 JordanCon Guest of Honor Brent Weeks!
Brent has very kindly donated the rights to name a minor character in one of his upcoming works. The stunning conclusion to the Lightbringer Series, THE BURNING WHITE, set to be released in late 2019, and will go into production in a few weeks. As the winner of this auction, you can submit a name (or variation thereof) that may appear in that book, or another upcoming project of Brent’s choosing. There is no guarantee that the name will be used in a specific book, but it will be used somewhere, and whatever he does is bound to be great. The character named will play a minor role in the work; there is no promise of dialogue or impact on the plot, but Brent will do his best to make the appearance a memorable one.
Brent will adapt the winning bidder’s submitted name to fit the world of the Seven Satrapies or Midcyru. Usually,
this means altering the spelling/pronunciation to fit the culture of the fictional world.
If the winning bidder chooses to submit the name of someone else, the winning bidder must submit a written release
from this other person giving permission to use their name.
This auction is for the name only. The winning bidder may not dictate the character’s personality, description, or role in
the story. Any such ideas become the sole property of Brent Weeks with no further compensation or acknowledgment.
If you are the winning bidder, you must provide contact information (Full name, proposed character name, email address,
physical address, and telephone number)
Finally, we hope it goes without saying, but: the submitted name will be rejected if Brent feels that it is in any way
offensive, ill-intentioned, or disruptive to the story.
The Release Date for THE BURNING WHITE is October 22, 2019. However, publication dates are naturally subject to change. The winning bidder may receive an email with updates regarding the actual release date.
Here it is–the stunning cover image for Lightbringer 5: The Burning White.
EDIT: Here’s a description of the visuals, written by CAPSLOCK.
The Hooded Man is standing on a rocky beach, facing away from us. He is facing an enormous, circular stone tower several yards away (we can only see the first two stories of it). He is brandishing a large sword in his right hand, wearing a red cape, and looking to his left. From our perspective, there’s a white glow coming from his left hand (which is obscured by the cape), and a bolt of orange light emanating from his right side (near his arm). He is surrounded by a warm glow of light in every color, with red, blue, violet, and orange being most prominent. The rest of the image is shades of gray. It looks to be nighttime. The phrase on this volume is “Every legend shines a light…”
How’s this for gutsy? I love it! With an appearance by our good friend The Hooded Man! (Hey, buddy, fancy seeing you here!)
An enormous thank you to Lauren Panepinto (design) and Gene Mollica (illustration)–Lauren has worked to create beautiful covers for all five Lightbringer novels. The Burning White will be released in late summer/early fall 2019. (Yes, that’s next year. Patience, grasshopper.) If you’d like to leave your fulsome praise for their work, please do comment below.
This is the first I’ve let CAPSLOCK see it. (It’s fun to keep her out of the loop sometimes.) I think her head just exploded. Oh, MAN! Who’s gonna clean that up. CAPSLOCK 2, where are you?!
