New Signed Hardcover Edition of THE ELFSTONES OF SHANNARA

brooks-elfstonesof5000I love signed books! I collect them, show them off, and sell them for a living.

So when I see a deal that features signed books, I tend to get pretty excited about it!

Barnes & Noble is doing one such cool promo! On November 27th—known as Black Friday in the United States for the stress and chaos created for gift deal hunters after Thanksgiving—all B&N brick-and-mortar stores will be carrying a menagerie of signed books!

Quantities of these books will be limited. Very limited. About 5000 copies for each title, meaning only about 8 per B&N store. When the books are gone, they are gone. They will not be offered online at The only way to get them is to visit your local B&N store!

To view the titles of the signed copies at these B&N stores, click HERE!

Here are the copies that I’ll be hunting on Black Friday!

  • After Alice by Gregory Maguire
  • Soundless by Richelle Mead
  • Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
  • The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks
  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
  • The Martian by Andy Weir
  • Dead Wake by Erik Larson

As you can see, Terry has a new signed edition of The Elfstones of Shannara on that list! It is $35.00 and it is the same book that published back in 1982—well, updated with a new cover and a new size. It is a gorgeous book and Penguin Random House only printed 5000 copies of the book for B&N. It will be a rare edition, no doubt about it.

Terry holds the book.

Of special note. I’ve called two B&N stores and both stores would not put my name down to hold copies of the books I wanted. Don’t even waste your time with a call. This is most definitely a first come first served type of situation!

That means you’d better get up early on Black Friday and head to your local B&N! If you want that edition of The Elfstones of Shannara!

You are going to need it to brave the masses!

And be safe!
