The Work Continues! + Weekly Update
Brandon here with your Weekly Update. Stormlight 5 is, Bing! 48%. So we are moving right along. Next week we will probably cross that 50% mark. What this means is right now I’m at about 220,000 words. I’m going to hit us at 50% when we hit 225,000. Now, the book might be longer than 450,000, but I’m kind of hoping it will be 450,000. So we’ll see. But that’s what I’m going to call 50%, so hopefully we will hit that next week.
Skyward Legacy is at, Bing! 25%. So both Janci and I are hitting milestones within these weeks. So tune in next week and we’ll see.
TOR’s new repackage of Alloy of Law is up for preorder. This is with the new style covers. We will have all of the Mistborn books, including The Lost Metal, in this cover edition eventually, before too much longer. These are all trade paperbacks. They look really slick. So we have some links where you can get those, and the release is on July 4th. So that’s when the book will be in bookstores.
Kickstarter update. So some good news for you. We have another truck that has arrived. It wasn’t a full truck. But last week you heard me really worried that we would get one truck and then they would dry up, like happened on Secret Project 1. That is not so far happening. Another truck has come and we have actually scheduled for the other ones. And so we’re hoping that that schedule is going to work and keep. I saw people mention in the last weekly update that they had gotten their shipping notification. We’re going to be shipping out this truck very quickly, and hopefully, the next ones will just keep rolling in so that we can keep sending out Secret Project 2 to you all.
Final thing: we are going to be doing a book club for Book 2, The Frugal Wizard’s Handbook for Surviving Medieval England. Like we did with Book 1, we’re going to have a book club on this channel just for the read-along. So if you want to join, it’s going to be published at the end of June. Theoretically by then most people will have gotten their physical editions and you’ll all have had your audiobook and your ebook. So you can come along and participate in that, read the comments, watch the thing. We’re going to have Joshua, my agent, as part of this one, and he is a character and a delightful human being. And so that will be a lot of fun. So come be prepared to go to the Frugal Wizard book club, which we’ll do across a couple of weeks like we did the last one here on the channel on YouTube.
I’ll be back next week with more updates for you.
