We will start with The Elfstones of Shannara and the other Terry Brooks books that Grim Oak Press is producing. The Elfstones of Shannara is about to wrap it’s production. All of the interior art is finished. The cover is finished. The files are laid out. And the beta-reader PDF file is ready and a post about that is coming later today. Marc Simonetti has turned in fantastic artwork and Terry and I couldn’t be happier with all of it. I am merely waiting on the book’s Ellcrys leaf icon that Marc is producing as we speak — and the book will be sent off to the printer. I really hope to get finished copies in December sometime. It would be a magical end to the year.
Sometimes the Magic Works is also finished with artwork. We will be laying out the book in late November and it will likely publish in February.
The Wishsong of Shannara is the wild card in all of this. Once Marc is finished with that final Ellcrys icon symbol for Elfstones, I am having him turn his attention to Street Freaks, the semi-secret SF futuristic Terry Brooks book that Grim Oak Press will publish in September 2018. Once Marc is done with his work on Street Freaks, he will turn his attention to the cover and interiors on The Wishsong of Shannara. I think that book will publish in March if not earlier.
