Hi Grim Oakers,
Grim Oak Press is excited to exhibit November 20-21st at Dragonsteel 2023!
What is Dragonsteel 2023? It is a convention in Salt Lake City, Utah that bestselling author Brandon Sanderson and his amazing team began a few years ago. No comic books. No Hollywood celebrities. No gaming corporations. Instead, it prominently features SF&F book industry professionals—from artists and authors to agents and editors to publishers like us.
Who will be at the Grim Oak Press Booth #438? Grim Oak Press owner, author, and editor Shawn Speakman, and author, Hollywood screenwriter, and Unfettered contributor Eldon Thompson will be there to sign copies of their books. We also hope author Michael J. Sullivan will stop by to sign copies of Unfettered as well.
What will we be bringing to Booth #438? Grim Oak Press will be bringing some books and merchandise:
- Dragonsbane by Barbara Hambly (with foreword by Brandon Sanderson and new map by Dragonsteel's Isaac Stewart)
- The King-Killing Queen by Shawn Speakman (newly-released novel)
- The Dark Thorn by Shawn Speakman
- The Tempered Steel of Antiquity Grey by Shawn Speakman
- The Undone Life of Jak Dreadth by Shawn Speakman
- The Ukinhan Wilds by Eldon Thompson
- The Blackmoon Shards by Eldon Thompson
- The Sundered Isle by Eldon Thompson
- Unfettered: The 10th Anniversary Edition edited by Shawn Speakman (attending authors Brandon Sanderson, Shawn Speakman, Michael J. Sullivan, and Eldon Thompson)
- Unfettered II edited by Shawn Speakman (attending authors Brandon Sanderson, Shawn Speakman, and Michael J. Sullivan)
- Grim Oak Coin: Dragonsteel 2023
- A paper bookmark for an unannounced upcoming project!
What?! What's the Grim Oak Coin: Dragonsteel 2023? We thought it would be fun to offer a celebratory Grim Oak Press 1.5" coin only available at Dragonsteel 2023. It will be limited to a quantity of 100, and it will have an antique silver finish. For the first hour of the convention on November 20th, we will have these at a discount for $10. Be sure to come to Booth #438 right when you enter the hall! One per person.
And of course, if we exhibit at 2024's Emerald City Comic Con and San Diego Comi-Con, we will produce coins for those cons that will be limited as well. And for those of you who do not attend conventions, we will also be producing a general Grim Oak Press coin that we will sell on the website soon.
Will you be offering any giveaways? Yes, we will. We have some fun things planned. Stop by our booth to discover what those are! Magnets and stickers? A TV? A rare edition? A Speakman tuckerization? Oh my!
We hope you will stop by Dragonsteel 2023 Booth #438, chat with us, and look at the books and other items we are bringing.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us.
