Catch up with Peat as he gives away copies of Myke Cole’s new book, prepares for his upcoming U.S. tour and reads over The Skull Throne one last time.

  • @PVBrett – Did you know the first chapter of #SkullThrone has been sitting on my website for over a year? Spoiler alert! http://t.co/MshiT4wo2c
  • @PVBrett - Read through a long forum of people trashing my books. Depressing, but nothing to make me wish I’d done things differently.
  • @PVBrett - FYI, if you write “politically correct” in quotes as part of an argument, odds are good you’re being an asshole.
  • @PVBrett - If ever you doubt evil exists in corporate America. http://t.co/39Tl7z2gRO
  • @PVBrett - Spent the afternoon discussing astrophysics with a six year old… who understood more than me. Kids are amazing.
  • @PVBrett - Was I the only kid who used to pretend R2-D2 had a cannon mode?#starwars http://t.co/mjEG5g258D

R2 D2 cannon mode

  • @PVBrett - UK page proofs. Supposed to be a last, cursory editorial read of #SkullThrone, but I keep getting sucked into the story.
  • @PVBrett - On the #SkullThrone tour let’s just gossip about the characters. Why did Arlen and Leesha hook up and not ship? Get your questions ready.
  • @PVBrett - Boom. http://t.co/dFYiB16I3P

red herring

Gemini Cell Giveaway

  • @PVBrett - Reviewing Jardir’s family tree for the #SkullThrone appendix. Just looking at it makes my head hurt.
  • @PVBrett - Jardir family tree we’re working on for #SkullThrone will be a reader’s dream resource. Getting it right is a genealogist’s nightmare.
  • @PVBrett - Me: How can you love a movie that makes you cry for 2 hours straight? @laurenalexg: You don’t understand women at all.
  • @PVBrett - Awful news. @borderlands_sf was so welcoming to authors, myself included. Borderlands Books to Close in March http://t.co/YFLOSlcW5x
  • @PVBrett - 1st #SkullThrone review I’ve seen. RT @mom3times1: Faire’s Fair Book Reviews: The Skull Throne by Peter V. Brett http://t.co/s7gCAUpEdi
  • @PVBrett - My 2010 iMac spends a lot of time ‘thinking’. What is it thinking about? Retirement?
  • @PVBrett - Seattle @emeraldcitycon is shaping up to be just awesome. Panels, selling #SkullThrone early, and setting up a Drinks with Authors event.
  • @PVBrett - Giddy how positive early reviews of #SkullThrone have been. Even the worst one grudgingly admitted it was better than Daylight War.
  • @PVBrett - Signed and plated 14 Demon Cycle books at the Union Sq. Barnes & Noble in NYC:

Signed Union Sq

  • @PVBrett - For those of you asking, the US audiobook of #SkullThrone will release same day as print, March 31!
