Small Magic, Kickstarter, and a New Facebook Live

Hi Brooks Readers,

Some news for you on this Monday!

Small Magic publishes tomorrow. Finally! If you don’t know about it, click HERE. If you want a signed copy of the book, you can order one from The Signed Page or University Book Store. It features stories from Shannara, Landover, and Word/Void. So a Brooks book for every one of his readers! To celebrate the release of Small Magic, Terry and I will be talking about the short fiction collection and how Terry goes about writing short stories via a Zoom virtual event put on by University Book Store. It requires a purchase of a book from UBS but will be worth it. Details on that HERE.

In one week, Terry and bestselling author Lev Grossman are conducting a Facebook Live to talk about SF&F Hollywood adaptation — the exhilaration as well as the pitfalls. Terry worked on The Shannara Chronicles obviously, and Lev’s The Magicians led to the SYFY TV series. Lev also has a new Amazon Prime Video movie I highly recommend titled The Map of Tiny Perfect Things, which was adapted from his short story. Bring your questions!

And finally, the Kickstarter ended yesterday and you guys funded it! Now the real work begins. For those of you who pledged for their anniversary edition of The Scions of Shannara, more details will be coming later this week about the BackerKit Add-On store and what we have planned. Stay tuned!

More Ask Terry coming Wednesday! It’s been a while but it is returning. Oh, and Terry is writing Chapter 23 of Child of Light‘s sequel. He’s on another roll, folks!

Happy Monday!

Shawn
