My publisher has made a slight change to the cover of Promise of Blood:
That’s right, I now have a blurb on my book from each of two different New York Times Bestselling fantasy authors: Brent Weeks (on the back) and Brandon Sanderson! How stinking cool is that? The full quote from Brandon is:
“This book is just plain awesome. I found myself enjoying every moment of it. Innovative magic, quick-paced plot, interesting world. I had a blast.”
This is the kind of thing that makes me giddy as a schoolboy. For those of you that don’t know, Brandon was a professor of mine at BYU. He was very encouraging long before I had any indication that anyone would buy my books, and he taught me a great deal about both the practice and business of writing. To get this quote on my first novel is huge on both a professional and personal level.
If you haven’t read any of Brandon’s books, you’re obviously living under a rock. You can get started with Mistborn.
