White Sand Release & Signings Starting Tonight!
Many of you have been asking for details about the release of White Sand. For those who don’t know, this is a book I wrote around the same time as Elantris—but which I didn’t ever sell. It needed a solid revision before I could send it out, and there were so many things I had to work on that the revision kept getting delayed. When the comic book company Dynamite Entertainment came along a few years ago asking if I had anything that would make a good graphic novel, it seemed the perfect opportunity to make use of White Sand.
Dynamite has been excellent to work with. Rik Hoskin, the person hired to do the adaptation, is a fantastic writer—and he really managed to preserve the core of my story, using my own dialogue and descriptions, while cutting out all the unnecessary stuff. The artist Julius Gopez, the colorist Ross Campbell, the letterer Marshall Dillon, and the editor, Rich Young, have all done a wonderful job.
The novel is big (no surprise), so it’s going to be released in three volumes. The first of these comes out today!
I’ll be doing two release events for volume 1 of White Sand. See below, or the upcoming events page on my website. All copies of White Sand will be signed and numbered at both of these events.
