The High Druid’s Blade by Terry Brooks is published and in fine bookstores now!

Terry is not touring this year. He is deep into writing the third book in the Defenders of Shannara series, along with writing two other new books and partnering with Hollywood to bring The Elfstones of Shannara to television. But he still loves talking to the fans and he decided to hold two events—one at University Bookstore in Seattle, WA (last night) and the other at Powell’s Books in Portland, OR (coming Sunday).

He has visited the University Bookstore almost every year since moving to Seattle twenty-five years ago. And last night, he had wonderful fans who came out in support of this year’s book, The High Druid’s Blade. Terry read from two unpublished pieces—the two “not an excerpts” posted on his website in the last few weeks.

Then he answered questions on a range of subjects. He even mentioned Kevin Hearne and how awesome he is. Love it when authors talk about authors they enjoy.

Here is video of the event. I hope you enjoy it!


I have to say, I paid him to say those nice things about me. Not really. I don’t have enough money to buy Terry off! In all seriousness, it is an awesome reality to wake up every day and work on Terry’s behalf. For years, Terry’s wife Judine has said he has the best fans. And he does. Being one, I know them quite well. You all make it easy to work on his site and social media every day.

It’s a pleasure. It’s an honor. Now how do I get that raise? Ha!

The High Druid’s Blade is in fine bookstores now!

The beginning of the end has come.
