A Sullivan Kickstarter & Don Maitz Sketches

A Sullivan Kickstarter & Don Maitz Sketches

Hi Grim Oakers,

I thought I'd share some news today because it is quite time sensitive. And I'll include a short update on some projects too.

Bestselling author Michael J. Sullivan is nearing the end of his Kickstarter for Nolyn, the first book in his new fantasy trilogy. The Kickstarter ends this afternoon so there isn't much time left. Grim Oak is publishing an edition of Nolyn in August 2021 but we thought we'd send a whole lot of Kickstarter love that way in case some of you want the fancier edition. It's a perfect place to start reading Sullivan if you are looking for something new.

To other news, amazing artist Don Maitz is accepting sketch/remarque work. You can send him your Grim Oak copies of Magician and/or Silverthorn and he will either $125 pencil or $250 watercolor sketch in them. I'm having watercolor remarques done to my copies. To contact him, click HERE. You pay mailing back and forth. Here are two images of what the watercolor looks like:

And finally, we are expecting Dragonsbane triple-signed by Barbara Hambly, Michael Whelan, & Brandon Sanderson, and The Illearth War double-signed by Stephen R. Donaldson & Allen Morris to ship to us sometime this week or early next week. Unfettered II and Storm Front are next up. So if you haven't ordered these yet, now might be a good time, especially if you are wanting to match a number!

Back to work for me! Hope you all are well and reading something great!

With Magic,

Shawn Speakman
Publisher & Creative Director

PS: There will be six or seven Lettered Edition copies of The Scions of Shannara and Indomitable going up on Terry's Kickstarter on Thursday at 11AM PT. First come, first pledged! FYI!
