Just a reminder that if you want to get a hardback copy of The Book of Swords signed by me, you had best pre-order it now.
This is an anthology edited by Gardner Dozois, and featuring some top notch writers. (No, I’m not bragging about myself! ) Just look at some of the names!:

I’ve mentioned before that my story, Her Father’s Sword, features an appearance by Fitz. It was fun to write him as other might have seen him at the time of the Red Ship War.
Many readers enjoy getting the anthologies, and then carrying them to the various conventions, to collect autographs from all the writers. I’ve seen some womderful examples of those.
There are two ways to preorder the book and have it arrive already signed by me. If you wish, I can dedicate it as well.
For the bibliophile or collector who wants a signed first edition, first printing of the book in absolutely pristine condition, I recommend The Signed Page. It’s also a great place to get a signed Patrick Rothfuss or Peter V Brett book. Take a look at all Shawn has to offer there.
The other place to pre-order a signed copy is The University Book Store in Seattle. When you order the book, you will find a ‘comments’ box. That is where you would leave a note that you’d like the book autographed. And if you want it personalized, that is where you’d let us know. You can order any book by me that Duane has in stock, and I will sign and personalize it for you. A lot of local to Seattle writers do this. And The University Book Store will ship the book to you, at book rate, for free. That’s always a nice bonus.
In other news I’m excited that Penhaligon is about to release the new German edition of Royal Assassin, Der Bruder Des Wolfs.. This is a fresh translation, and I love how the covers complement one another! We are so pleased to see this re-launch of the series in Germany.
