Orbit Books published his first novel in 2008; The Way of Shadows is also the first book in Weeks' The Night Angel Trilogy, which has been printed in 10 different languages; the Way of Shadows is also scheduled to be adapted into a graphic novel by Yen Press.
The first book in his Lightbringer Series was released in 2010. Originally intended to be a trilogy, his publishers announced in 2012 that it would span four books, the third of which was released in August 2014.
On May 11th, 2016, Brent Weeks announced two things in an email newsletter to fans as well as on his website, the first of which being that The Blood Mirror will be published on October 25th/27th of 2016 (US/UK release dates respectively) and secondly: "There will be five books in the Lightbringer Series, not four..." Weeks did not, however, promise or indicate a release date.
Weeks lives and works in Oregon.
