WORDS OF RADIANCE release party tonight + Updates


Writing Excuses has two new episodes: “When is your handwavium good enough?” and “What to do when truth is stranger than fiction.” Also, all of my February tweets have been uploaded here.

Words of Radiance comes out tomorrow in the US and Canada in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook (the UK/Commonwealth date is Thursday), and the midnight release party is tonight at the BYU Bookstore. They started handing out wristbands this morning, and nearly half of their copies have already been reserved. There’s a real danger of them selling out, so if you want to make sure you get a copy, run down to the store and prepay (or show your online receipt) to get your wristband.

I’m going in at about 9:00 p.m. to pre-sign and number all of the books. The doors will open at 10:00 p.m., and I’ll start my public Q&A and reading at about 10:45. You can grab your book at midnight and go home to sleep (or read), or you can stick around and have me personalize your books and ask me one-on-one questions. That will take at least a couple more hours, so it’s going to be a late night. I’m looking forward to seeing many of you there! Full details on the midnight release are here.

There’s info on my entire book tour here. If you would like to get my newsletter (3 or 4 times per year—I’ll be sending one tomorrow) and have me send you email reminders when I’m signing near you, tell me your city here (be sure to check the box!).
