Pre-Order Now: Sister of Starlit Seas by Terry Brooks

Hi Brooks Readers,

It’s that time of year! Now that the cover and book description have been revealed, I can open up pre-orders for Book 3 of the Viridian Deep series, Sister of Starlit Seas by Terry Brooks.

Publishing: November 14, 2023

If you haven’t been reading the Viridian Deep series that began with Child of Light and Daughter of Darkness, you’ve been missing out. I think most Brooks readers would agree with that. So far, this series has been amazing. And knowing how much work Terry put into Sister of Starlit Seas, I think it is going to be even better than the first two installments.

Here is a description of Sister of Starlit Seas:

A rebellious young heroine sets off on an adventure of self-discovery in the third novel of an epic fantasy series set in the world of Viridian Deep, from the legendary author behind the Shannara saga.

Auris’s adoptive sister Char has always been the baby of the family—a position that grates on her, especially when everyone is so intent on telling her exactly what to do and how to do it. Plus, there is her headstrong, impulsive behavior, which her family has always seen as a liability. But Char is certain that the quality most see as her greatest weakness is actually her greatest strength: her willingness to instantly brave danger and leap to the rescue the minute anyone she loves is threatened.

Char knows she can never grow into the woman she was meant to be under her family’s loving but repressive eye, so a month before she turns fifteen, she runs away, and ends up joining a Human pirate crew in the warm, southerly regions of her world. But three years into her pirate career, her captain—and the man she is convinced she loves—is captured by the those in charge of the slave trade he has been fighting. And when Char leaps in to rescue him, she suddenly finds herself thrust into an adventure that will uncover secrets she never suspected about herself. And which will maybe, finally, teach her to look before she leaps.

Click HERE to pre-order your signed copy of Sister of Starlit Seas! There will only be 100 personalizations available. When gone, they are gone. Gotta protect Terry’s hand so he can keep writing what we all love. The rest of the copies will be flat-signed by Terry on the title page, per usual.

Get ready to return to Viridian Deep!

With Magic,

Pre-Order Now: Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs

Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs will publish in March 2021!

We had such a fun time seeing Patty and Ann a few months ago for Smoke Bitten that Ann reached out to me last week and asked if I’d put up the pre-order link for Wild Sign, the sixth Alpha & Omega novel. Cover art by Dan Dos Santos was released and I thought, “Sure, let’s do it!”

So HERE you go! You can pre-order your personalized or signed copy of Wild Sign now!

Also, I have added a new payment gateway. No longer do you have to use PayPal if you do not want to. This website is secure and I’ve added a way for you to directly enter your credit card information using our e-commerce platform. No third party gateway if you like! So that’s great. Use whichever gateway you like though.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend reading something great!

Pre-Order Now On Grim Oak Press: Street Freaks by Terry Brooks

For you The Signed Page Terry Brooks fans!

The pre-order period for Street Freaks by Terry Brooks is now open on Grim Oak Press!

While the new Shannara novel The Skaar Invasion publishes June 19th, this new Brooks book publishes in October. I am excited for all of you to read it. I have been Terry’s webmaster for almost twenty years and during that time many readers have asked if he’d be writing something unrelated to Shannara or Landover, a new book that would surprise his readers with a new world, new characters, new conflict.

Street Freaks is that new book, a wholly different type of story from what has come before. Here are more details about it:

It begins with a dire call-right before his father disappears and his skyscraper home’s doors explode inward. It is the kind of thrilling futuristic story only Terry Brooks can tell.

“Go into the Red Zone. Go to Street Freaks.” his father directs Ashton Collins before the vid feed goes suddenly silent. The Red Zone is the dangerous heart of mega-city Los Angeles; it is a world Ash is forbidden from and one he knows little about. But if he can find Street Freaks, the strangest of aid awaits—human and barely human alike. As Ash is hunted, he must unravel the mystery left behind by his father and discover his role in this new world.

You can pre-order three different signed editions on Grim Oak Press right now:

Brooks has long been the grandmaster of fantasy. Now he turns his hand to science fiction filled with what his readers love best: complex characters, extraordinary settings, exciting action, and a page-turning story. As a longtime Brooks fan, I am thrilled to share the gripping Street Freaks with you in October. Through it, Brooks reimagines his bestselling career yet again.

The first 500 orders will get a rare Street Freaks chapbook (see picture below) and, if you want that chapbook shipped to you now after pre-ordering, contact us and we will set up a special button for you to pay the shipping.

Street Freaks will also be available through Amazon, B&N, and all independent bookstores in the US and Canada as unsigned copies, as well as on all ebook platforms.

It is an exciting time to be a Terry Brooks fan! Hope you enjoy this new ride with us!

Magic Always,
