Dragonsteel 2023 + Weekly Update
Hey! Weekly Update time. [In the YouTube video] I am wearing snazzy clothes because after this I am running to Utah Valley University where I am giving the commencement address, and they are giving me an honorary PhD. So I will be Honorary Doctor Sanderson. Not a real doctor. But it’s a great honor. So I’m very happy about that. Hopefully, my speech goes over well.
But for you guys, I have a couple of updates. Number one, Stormlight 5, Bing! 44%. It is coming along quite nicely so I’m going to bump it up 2%. I’m actually right around just over the 200,000-word mark. But I’m anticipating this at 450,000 rather than 400,000, and so that’s why we aren’t at 50% yet. So we’re just kind of hovering there. It’s more of a gut feeling on these percents than it is an exact science.
Though speaking of the percents, Bing! Skyward Legacy is at 20%. So Janci’s working away on that book, and I am very eager to see how the first draft turns out.
Last bit of announcements, I can talk about Dragonsteel 2023. It’ll be held November 20th and 21st, 2023. Registration opens June 6th. So if you want to register for that, you’ve got about a month until registration opens. And beyond that, we have hotel group rates available. You should be just fine grabbing those rooms right now because we have opened up Dragonsteel large enough that we don’t anticipate selling out in the first few weeks. So you should be just fine getting a hotel room now and then registering on the 6th. You will be able to get a ticket. Now, if you wait until November to register, I can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to get a ticket. But judging on last year and things like that, you’ll be just fine.
Beyond that, exhibitor applications are open. If you’re interested in having a booth at Dragonsteel. There’s a very large, cool exhibitor hall that was very busy, and people had a lot of fun there last year. So if you’d like to come exhibit, you can enter an application. Volunteer applications are open and can be found here. Or you can go to Dragonsteel.com, and it’ll take you there and give you all the information that you need to know.
Thank you, guys, very much. I’ll be back next week with more updates.
