Announcement: The Dark Thorn by Shawn Speakman

Greetings, Fantasy Reader,


Grim Oak Press is excited to launch its next crowdfunding project: The Dark Thorn Preferred Edition by Shawn Speakman


As  a fan of Shawn Speakman—from his writing or his work with Terry Brooks  or maybe his bookselling at The Signed Page and Grim Oak Press—we are inviting you to sign up at our pre-launch page for The Dark Thorn Preferred Edition and get a sneak peek at what we are up to.


A little backstory matters. When The Dark Thorn originally published, it was not professionally edited. Given that its sequel, The Everwinter Wraith, will be edited by former Del Rey Books editor in chief Betsy Mitchell, Speakman decided to hire her to improve The Dark Thorn and its continuity of language and grammar. This will be the best way to read the fantasy novel, especially before The Everwinter Wraith publishes. It will also feature new cover artwork, a new map of Annwn, and interior illustrations.


But we need your help to do that! Share your email before we launch and gain access to a secret community where we will reveal a great deal more over the next few weeks. And by doing so, you will also receive a FREE tarot card when your pledge ships!


In this way you get something FREE as well as ensure you don't miss out when the project goes live on June 12, 2024.


Will you join us on our quest for the Dark Thorn?


Enter your email HERE to get that FREE tarot card and discover if you are worthy to wield the Dark Thorn!


With Magic!
