Walker Boh has long been a favorite character for Shannara readers.
Well, 20 years ago, I helped artist Terese Nielsen paint Walker for a Dragon Magazine cover. It was great fun working with her. We managed to put Walker on board the Jerle Shannara as he is sailing to Parkasia. And I think the results speak for themselves. It’s a gorgeous painting that I wish I had purchased at the time!
The Terry Brooks Community on Facebook has a robust collecting component to it, with members scouring the internet(s) to find rare Brooks merchandise. That copy of Dragon Magazine pops up often. And recently, someone reached out to Terese Nielsen about an art print of “Walker Boh.” And a few people have already received them, which is pretty cool.
Since I like giving you guys what you want, I reached out to Terese about producing however many art prints we need to help you collectors. And even if you aren’t a collector but what this gorgeous print on your wall, well, now you can make that happen! The Signed Page is accepting pre-orders for an archival-quality 17″x22″ art print of Walker Boh. Terese will sign and Terry will sign, making the art print… wait for it… double-signed!
Yesterday, Terry Brooks and I revealed the cover for his forthcoming new novel, Daughter of Darkness. It is the sequel to Child of Light and it publishes October 11th.
Did you know The Signed Page started with Terry? The first signing I ever had was for three copies of Angel Fire East in 1999. That’s a long time ago. Ever since, Terry has signed every year at The Signed Page, helping his readers acquire signed books near cover price all over the world.
Daughter of Darkness is the newest book. If you haven’t read Child of Light, I highly recommend it. I think the reviews out there speak more than what I think, but wow, it has done well for something unrelated to Shannara, Landover, or Word/Void. And it won’t stop there. Terry plans on writing a third book in the series, to publish 2023.
Click HERE to pre-order now. There will only be 100 personalizations available. First come, first gone. All remaining orders though will be signed on the title page by Terry.
The new Terry Brooks book Child of Light published yesterday. This is just an update to inform everyone that Terry has scheduled to sign the books on Monday, October 25th. I should receive books today and, if they are undamaged and in great shape, we will get them flapped and ready for Terry to sign next week.
Once we have the books today, I can gauge what size box is needed and will order supplies. We will make the boxes this week in preparation so when Terry is done signing we will hit the ground running with the shipping part of the process.
Note that I said “we” in that last sentence. Yes, I just hired my first employee for The Signed Page. It’s time. I need the help and you guys are going to love Sydney. More news on that tomorrow or the next day.
In the meantime, thank you for your patience. Terry now lives four hours from me so getting together is a bit harder than it used to be.
