Worldbuilders, Tour Dates & Updates

Pat Rothfuss’s Worldbuilders charity drive runs until midnight tonight Central time. Today is the last chance to donate this year, with a good chance to win a cool donated book. The latest batch includes a signed leatherbound copy of my novella LEGION. By the way, last week’s THE GATHERING STORM auction went for $300. This week’s LEGION just goes into the general pool of prizes for people who donate $10 on the Heifer International page. (Each additional $10 donation gets you another ticket in the drawing.)

In this week’s Writing Excuses podcast episode, Dan, Mary, Howard, and I talk about how to give your story’s animals a personality. Give it a listen.

A MEMORY OF LIGHT did indeed hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for hardcover fiction. It also hit #1 on the USA Today list, which is much harder, since the USA Today list covers all print books, whatever the format, whether fiction or nonfiction. That’s the sendoff we had hoped to be able to deliver for Robert Jordan’s legacy. I’m honored to have been involved. Thank you to all the readers who made this a reality, and I hope you’re enjoying the book.

I’ll also go to various conventions this year, and there are two or three book tours later this year that aren’t planned out yet. I’ll try to stop somewhere in Texas for the THE RITHMATIST tour in May, and I’m thinking of going to the UK around November or so.
