NOTE: There are reports that Sam Weller’s has run out of books for pre-order. This was true, but with a little emergency finagling we’ve managed to get them an extra few boxes. So you CAN STILL PREORDER a signed, numbered edition. With the arrival of these extra copies, they’ve extended the pre-order deadline to October 14th at 7:00 pm. They will be giving the discount up until this day! If you’re planning to order a signed copy, you’ll have to do so before then.
Now, for news regarding the Provo Launch event, I’ve got another reason that it’s going to be awesome! Isaac Stewart, the artist who did the maps for all three books as well as all of the chapter icons inside the novel, will be in attendance. He’ll be signing maps and answering questions about being an illustrator. So, you not only get a signed, personalized, numbered copy–you also get one that is signed by the interior artist. (We’re hoping to get him to Sam Weller’s on the following day as well.)
In honor of this news, I want to give you a sneak peek at something Isaac and I are working on–a poster of Allomantic Metals.
It’s not done yet–we’re changing the border to be metallic and want to rework the title lettering above and below the symbol, so this is just a very early sneak peek. Hopefully, within a few weeks we’ll have this baby ready to sell. It will include all sixteen metals, with their Allomantic, their Feruchemical, and their Hemalurgic properties. You really have to see this thing when it’s blown up to full size–the level of detail on it is amazing.
In other news, I’ve added a new appearance to the Book Tour schedule. I’ll be doing a casual, drop-by signing at the Borders in Costa Mesa California at the South Coast Plaza: (3333 Bear St # 142, Costa Mesa, CA) This will be on the 22nd of October, and will be from 4-5:30. I’ll still be doing a more formal, official signing later that night in Huntington Beach. Dave should be here at Costa Mesa with me too, so if you live in the area, be sure to drop by!
