THE ALLOY OF LAW, my new Mistborn novel set 341 years after the events of THE HERO OF AGES, is coming out on November 8th. If you haven’t been aware, there are preview chapters up at Tor.com; chapter four just went up today.
Below is my U.S. and Canada tour schedule. I’m going to Vancouver BC for the first time, though the details aren’t quite worked out on that stop yet. I’ll also be heading somewhere else immediately following the Brooklyn date; keep your eyes on my events calendar. It’s a good idea to tell me what city you live in if you want me to send an email reminder when I’m going to be near you.
Note: There WILL be an organized way to get signed and numbered copies by mail as there was in previous years, but we won’t be ready to announce the details on that until the middle of August. It also looks like Murder by the Book (see below) will let you ship three other books to them for me to sign for every copy of ALLOY you buy from them. That may interest some of you. (As always, my own signed books store is also available for older books—I don’t put any books there until a hardcover has been out for a year, so I don’t compete with the bookstores. Your local bookseller is still the best place to buy my books; the more copies they sell, the more likely they are to keep ordering copies to put on the shelf so people see them.)
