The Wards of Faerie Tour

Coming August 21st!
Wards of Faerie will be published August 21, 2012!

And with the new book comes a new tour!

Terry will be hitting the road for Wards of Faerie, meeting his fans and signing thousands of books before it is done. For those of you who haven’t gone to a Terry Brooks event and he’s coming near you, do it! It is a fun experience. Terry will be reading an excerpt from Bloodfire Quest, taking questions from the audience, and signing books.

He will sign all of the books that you have; he just asks that those of you with dozens of books to wait at the back of the line as a nicety to the other fans.

And yes, Terry doesn’t mind pictures. Hope to see some of them posted on his Facebook and Twitter accounts!

In March 2013, Terry is tentatively planning on touring states New Mexico, Arizona, California, Oregon, and Washington.

NOTE: More information for the Bloodfire Quest tour will be announced in December 2012!

For those of you who can’t meet Terry when he does go on tour and yet still want to have a book signed or personalized for you, this website holds an online signing at The Signed Page. There, a fan can purchase the book for cover price and Terry signs it. This is a service Terry enjoys doing since he obviously can’t visit every city on his tour.

If you have any questions about the tour, just post them in the comments below. I’ll do my best to answer them.

Order Now: Wards of Faerie!

  1. Is there is FAQ regarding rules for the tour? How many books he’ll sign, etc. I have looked over the website but I don’t see anything.

  2. Whoops, sorry about that Shawn. I admit I glossed over it thanks for pointing it out…sometimes I don’t know where my brain is at.

    • Terry’s been to Montreal several times that I know of. He won’t be going there for Wards though. And it won’t be for Bloodfire Quest either — too cold that time of year. Keep your fingers crossed for Witch Wraith next August 2013.

  3. I saw Terry in Chicago for Armageddon’s Children, and now I can’t wait to see him again in my hometown of Milwaukee.

  4. will Terry be coming back to the UK at all? Or is he able to sign UK covered editions on the signed page too….? Cheers

    • No to both questions, sadly. The UK publisher isn’t bringing Terry over. I would LOVE to have UK editions of Wards of Faerie on The Signed Page but in the past when I’ve ordered them they always arrive damaged. My customers don’t want damaged signed books so… I don’t order.

  5. Just wondering if there are any plans for a tour through Michigan. I am pondering a trek to Chicago, but that’s quite a haul for a work day. Thanks for any info!

    • No plans, Joe. The tour is set. He won’t be going to Michigan in March for Bloodfire Quest either — too cold. The next best bet is August 2013 for Witch Wraith but Terry is seriously considering NOT touring anymore. It’s just too exhaustive and his writing is taking over precedence. If I were you, I’d go to Chicago.

  6. I just ordered from the signed page. I just wish I had a chanced to meet Terry in person. But the closet he will be to me is in Ohio which would be around a7 hour drive for me one way and also I have to work those 2 days, a too short a notice to get someone to replace me. My stomplng grounds is Western Maryland are north to Altoona PA, south to Winchester VA and west to Morgantown WV there is a lot of book stores in that area. I love to see him in my area some time soon.

  7. Was happy to see he will be in Naperville, Il. Monday 9/10/12 would it be rude to bring all my TB books to have them signed? I don’t have a problem being at the end of the line.

    • Not rude at all. Terry loves people who bring all their books. But yes, as a nicety to the other fans it is best to be at the back of the line with that many people. Then you’ll be able to talk to him uninfringed by others. 🙂

  8. Was there an e-signing for this book? Did I miss it? I must be brain dead….when I can I place an order? Sorry :/

    • No chance in the foreseeable future. He isn’t August 2012 and he won’t brave the winter for March 2013 and the release of Bloofire Quest. Your next bet is August 2013 for the release of Witch Wraith. Keep your fingers crossed!

  9. Minneapolis. YES! Saw Terry here on the Running With the Demon tour. I still remember it clearly. The Q & A was fantastic. It’s nice to know there’s a whole community of other people out there also enjoying Terry’s books.

    Can’t wait to be there again!

    Hey Shawn, will you be coming? It’d be nice to thank you in person for building and maintaining this terrific website.

  10. I’m so excited! I’m going to Seattle on Sept. 1st to meet Mr. Brooks. I’ve been reading the Shannara books since I was 15. This man has had a huge presence in my life for most of it. I can’t wait!!!

  11. Hey Terry Ever get to NJ! I have been a Fan of your books since I was able to read!

    And The Sword of Shannara Was Publish on the Year and Month of my Birth! Your Books are very special to me! How you can get around the east coast a little more!

  12. Is there any chance that terry would be coming to Little Rock, Ar??? I would love to have the chance to meet my fav author.

  13. I am so excited! I have been waiting to see Terry for years! I might have to go to more than 1 of his stops in the Midwest just for pure celebration!

  14. I am getting “Wards of Faerie” for my birthday as I do most of the Shannara books….bday and release date are always about the same. Here’s my question– I have the entire series and I know Terry isn’t scheduled for NM this tour but maybe in 3/13 for “Bloodfire Quest” , and I would so love to get each of my books signed, which by that time will be Quite a few. I have every book he has written (including his graphic novel) and I seek to leave this set of books to my kids and have them passed down in the family. What would be my chances of reserving time after the book signing to meet him and get my books signed?

    • Hey Susan, Terry always has people bring their entire collections. As I wrote above, he just asks that you wait until the end of the line as a nicety to the other fans who attend the event. He’ll sign all of your books.

  15. I am planning to buy The Wards of Faerie this Saturday when Mr. Brooks is in my home state in Indy! I can’t wait! I have been reading the Shannarah books for years and I am a huge fan of his writing and storytelling. Your work is amazing Mr. Brooks! Thank you for all the years of entertainment you have given me and everyone else.

    • Terry tours where the publisher sends him. 🙂 And unfortunately, Canada doesn’t have a “real” publisher to fight for Terry’s tour stops. He goes to Vancouver, BC, Toronto, and Montreal fairly frequently but that’s it.

  16. Went to the one in Dayton Ohio….was so great that i was able to go to another event. Even got a Poster of me and Terry signed that was taken the first time i got to go see him at.
