I am very pleased to say that in July, the first volume of The Farseer Trilogy, Assassin’s Apprentice, will be published in Brazil by Leya Brazil. The title will be Aprendiz de Assassino. (There’s a link hidden there! You just have to mouse over it to see it. Must fix that!)
This will be Fitz’s first venture into South America!

The Boston Public Library gave me a wonderful welcome this evening. Thank you to all the readers who came tonight, and thank you to Pandemonium Books and Games who supplied books for sale at the library. Afterwards, I made a visit to Pandemonium and found it a wonderful place. They have tables and space for gamers as well as a large selection of SF/fantasy books and all sorts of games and gaming gear.
I signed a lot of stock for the store, so if you live in the Boston/Cambridge area and you want a signed book but were not able to attend tonight, you should definitely drop by 4 Pleasant Street in Cambridge. In addition to my books, I saw autographed book from George RR Martin, Richard Kadrey, John Scalzi and many others.

Those are my stops this week!
Tomorrow I fly to Boston, but my actual event is on Tuesday at 5:30 at the Boston Public Library on Boylston Street.
Then, on Friday, I’ll be back in the Pacific Northwest, cruising down to Beaverton, Oregon, to see old friends at Powell’s Books and do a reading and signing at 7 PM. Coffee with whoever hangs around afterwards if we can find someplace that’s still open!
I’d make the same offer for Boston, but I don’t know if there are any nearby coffee shops that wouldn’t mind an invasion. If anyone knows a good one, please do buttonhole me after the event. Late coffee and chat with readers is one of the pleasures of a book tour.
See you there, I hope!
P.S. Is it hard to see the links in the post above? Please let me know. You should be able to click on the Boston Public Library or Powell’s for more information.

For those of you interested in the behind the scenes work that goes into a graphic novel, this link from Audrey may prove very interesting. It’s in English as well as French, so do not be shy!
Here you can find some brief introductions to the artists involved, as well as some samples of the pages.
(If you cannot easily see the link, just roll your mouse over ‘Audrey‘!

Please come on over to Reddit today to Ask Me Anything.
Well, almost anything. If you ask me something that’s already here on my FAQ, I shall be quite grumpy and feel perfectly free to tell huge lies instead of giving you a simple answer.
If you post an unmasked spoiler, I will respond with the full lyrics to the song about ‘The Duck Walks Up To the Lemonade Stand.’
And if you ask a question that has already been asked more than three times, well, then I will flood your email with the answer to that question. 500 times. Small children with I-pods are standing by to help with that task.
Okay, I’m kidding. Mostly. Come on over to Reddit and let’s chat.

Well, tomorrow looks to be a busy day for me!
Hudson News is planning a Grand Re-Opening of its bookstore in the SeaTac International Airport tomorrow. Now, I know you cannot just drop in there, as it’s on the other side of the security gates. But if you will pass through SeaTac airport tomorrow, you will find several authors doing signings. Adrian Wood and S.C. Stephens are taking the 8:45 to 9:45 am shift, followed by Jonathan Evison at 10:30. At 11:30, you may encounter William Dietrich and Mike Lawson. At 12:30, Elizabeth Boyle and Julia Quinn. And finally, at 1:30, I’ll be dropping by. Even if you aren’t flying tomorrow, we plan to sign stock there, so you may find some autographed books if you are flying in the near future.
And for those of us who are only piloting our computers tomorrow, I’ll be doing a REDDIT AMA (Ask Me Anything) at 6 PM Pacific Time. These are always great fun. You can drop in and pose any question you wish. If you want to see how one of these works, you might want to take a look at this one that Brandon Sanderson did earlier today.
You can drop in early at Reddit Fantasy to post your questions. Please, before you post, take a look at the FAQ on this site to find answers to old favorites such as “Why do you write under two names?” and “Will you ever write about Fitz and the Fool again?” Both are excellent questions, but I’ve answered them far too often! So I’m looking forward to new and creative questions for the Reddit. Oh, and please be spoiler wary, especially for Blood of Dragons. I so greatly appreciate that!

I only wish it were in English and being published in the US as well! But for French readers, here is the cover fo the Soleil graphic novel adaptations of The Liveship Traders, part one, Ship of Magic!
This is scheduled for release in June of this year.

Just a quick reminder that today, April 11th, I am over at Goodreads answering reader questions.
There are already a lot of them, but I am soldiering through them! And I always welcome a new and thoughtful question.
Apr. 7th, 2013 | 01:16 pm
So, what do you think? Please do let us know!
Many thanks to Eric of Goldspace web design for his patience during this ongoing update process!
We are still a work in progress, so please do keep coming back to see what we are changing, updating and adding to the website. And you feedback is sincerely welcome.

The first is, if you have pre-ordered Blood of Dragons in the US, you can get a signed bookplate to go in it!
Fill out this form on Facebook and the bookplate will be sent to you.
Second cool thing. Recently, I joined Goodreads, a social media site where it is far too much fun to assemble a library of books you have loved and post reviews of them. Now, as I consider myself an optimist, I only post about books I’ve enjoyed. So you can consider my library there something of a recommended reading list.
On April 11th, I’ll be doing a ‘featured author’ event there. Basically, it’s a chance to interact with readers. You can visit, ask question, and I’ll do my best to answer them.
Oh, and yes, I should add that I’ll be doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) over at Reddit fantasy on April 16th. So if you miss the one on the 11th at Goodreads, don’t hesitate to join us there.
