Bloodfire Quest will be published March 12, 2013!

And with the new book comes a new tour!

Terry will be hitting the road for Bloodfire Quest, the second book in The Dark Legacy of Shannara trilogy, 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 Witch Wraith or possibly the third short story he will be writing soon, 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!

Here are the dates, events, and times for the tour, as well as the other events Terry will be partaking in 2013! As you can see, he will be doing two conventions this year as well!

Terry will be doing a tour for Witch Wraith, the last book in The Dark Legacy of Shannara trilogy! Details concerning dates and stores will be available in June 2013.

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.
