Adam here. In this week’s new Writing Excuses episode, Cross-Genres as Gateways, Brandon, Piper, Howard, and Dan talk about books which have drawn them from genres where they’re most comfortable and what can be learned about your own writing by reading those gateway books.
Brandon will be speaking at the Superstars Writing Seminar in February. If you’re not familiar with Superstars, it’s a “drink-from-the-firehose” three-day event in Colorado Springs all about the business side of writing and publishing. If you’ve been considering attending you can use discount code “Sanderson-Friend” and get $100 off conference registration (good for first-time attendees only; may not be combined with other discounts). To find out more, visit superstarswriting.com. When you’re ready to sign up, go to “Registration” and when prompted select “New Member.”
In case you missed The Black Piper’s announcement that album Kaladin, which was inspired by The Way of Kings, was just released and you can check it out here.
I wasn’t able to post a #MistbornMonday fan art yesterday but I wanted to share one of my favorites. I can’t read the artist’s name but this sketch is amazing.
It’s been an exciting holiday season here at Dragonsteel headquarters. Many of you saw the post I put on Facebook a few days ago featuring Lopen, the newest member of team Dragonsteel and official mascot. If you’d like to send a little hello to The Lopen, you can email him at email@example.com.
