The Blood Mirror Release Date

The Blood Mirror Release Date

LOTS OF BIG NEWS

There’s great news, and there’s good or bad news depending on how you look at it–and there’s an apology. The great news first, we’re optimists here.

The Blood Mirror will be published October 25th of this year US/27th UK. You’ve already seen the gorgeous cover at left.

But I goofed, and I need to apologize for something that I thought was true when I said it… but isn’t.

J. R. R. Tolkien once said, “The story grew in the telling.” Famously, he had his too-long novel The Lord of the Rings broken up into three novels. Robert Jordan believed he had only a single volume left in The Wheel of Time, but when Brandon Sanderson took on the job, he quickly saw that it needed to be three more books. Tad Williams jokes about his four-book trilogies.

Now it’s happened to me. So the bad (?) news: There will be five books in the Lightbringer Series, not four.

In my judgment, this is the way I can best tell this story. This is what my story needs. But it requires me to go back on something I’d told you readers: I said The Blood Mirror would be the final book in this series, and it won’t be.

I’m sorry. I’m already working to make every page worth it to you.

(And because I know the first question I’ll get will be, “So when does book five come out?”:  I’m not going to make promises—that’s turned out poorly for SFF writers much bigger than I am. THAT SAID… I will be working hard to pleasantly surprise you long-suffering fantasy fans with how quickly the next book arrives.)

Last, if you want to get a sneak peek at a couple Blood Mirror chapters, sign up to the mailing list above! I send maybe four updates a year to that list, with extra info and special offers. (If you hate mailing lists, don’t worry, you can see those chapters in a couple of months on my extras page.)

Fan Art Tuesday: Fable Blades

Fan Art Tuesday: Fable Blades

We love our version of Retribution, but this fantastic, one-of-a-kind custom blade is pretty amazing:

CorpseMaker (8)CorpseMaker (2)

This is actually a combination of fan art work and professional smithing.
Reader Johnathan B. wanted a sword inspired by Retribution in the Night Angel series and found a professional smith to make it for him.

Brendan Olszowy of Fables Blades, makes one of a kind swords, scabbards, longstem pipes, and knives. You can see more of his work HERE. (Note that he does not replicate pieces but makes original pieces by commission only, to suit each client.)

Many thanks to Johnathan for sharing these pictures with us, and to Brendan for creating such a beautiful piece!
