Teen Author Boot Camp + Weekly Update
Brandon here. Weekly Update time! Stormlight 5 is at, Bing! 42%. That’s a very auspicious number. Things still continue to go well with that. I am working away and keeping going. And Janci has been working on Skyward Legacy, which is at, Bing! 17%. So both books are proceeding quite nicely.
A couple of cool updates for you. The Indie-Go-Go for the White Sand graphic novel. There’s been some trouble with some of the covers, particularly some of the foiling coming off. It’s like a glittery-foil thing that’s on the cover. We saw a thread on Reddit about it. And so we talked to the publisher, who is Dynamite. And they have said that they can return the damaged copies and receive new ones. So check the Indie-Go-Go page for more information. So if you’ve had one that things are going wrong with, they are willing to replace them. So good on them for doing that. And so go to the Indie-Go-Go page for more information.
Kickstarter update. So we are sending out the May box right now. Watch the progress bars and your email for your shipping information. Some people might actually be getting them today. We’ve got them going out. We’re working on them. We will be posting, or have just recently posted, an update about Secret Project 2. And so check that on the page. We’ll keep you up to date. As soon as we know when those books are going to go out we will let you know.
So Teen Author Boot Camp. This is an organization here locally in Utah that I’ve had the privilege of being involved with several times as one of their speakers. It is a very good program for young people wanting to learn to write. So this being Teen Author Boot Camp is not writing for teens. It is teens who are writing. Check the description if you’re interested. They are working on trying to make sure that Teen Author Boot Camp can continue post-pandemic. They’ve had some issues, as a lot of conventions have had. And we wanted to throw a shout-out to them and as much support as you’re willing to give them. It is a very good organization that has helped many people, including my own niece, who attended a number of times and always spoke highly of it.
Finally, we have a Five Favorites with Shannon Hale, one of my good friends and writer buddies locally here. We recorded this a number of months ago and we finally have gotten this up. Shannon is an absolute delight. You should always go see her if she is touring near where you are. And if you can’t get to see her, you should check out the Five Favorites with her. She’s an excellent writer and a good friend.
