Project Update: The Broken Empire

cover-brokenempirelimitedHi Everyone,

I have been getting a lot of inquires about The Broken Empire omnibus by Mark Lawrence. I thought I’d update again about this book specifically.

The Broken Empire was supposed to publish in Spring 2016. That ended a week ago, unfortunately. And the book is not completed. Jason Chan turned in his artwork on time, Mark Lawrence has been exceptional to work with as he’s given his input at every turn, and Nate Taylor delivered his graphic work.

Unfortunately, my book designer moved and has been trying to get her and her family back up and running. This has taken longer than anticipated. Needless to say, I’d say 85% of the work is done on the book. It is even laid out in InDesign. It merely needs some tweaks. But beyond that, the signing has not been completed yet either. Mark Lawrence has signed the pages. The 1052 pages are with Nate Taylor now. And then they have to go to Jason for signing as well.

When that is done, I will send the proof pages to Mark Lawrence for approval. And then it will go off to the printer. At that point, the printer asks for six to eight weeks to get it into their production queue.

That should give you a little bit better idea. We are close but still at least two months out.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to Contact me!

Best Wishes,
Shawn Speakman
