Art from the Wheel of Time: The Eye of the World Graphic Novel

It’s been a while since I posted any news regarding the Dabel Brothers Wheel of Time projects, and even though this news has probably fired through the internets already, I’m reposting it again because it’s awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was posted by Dragonmount at this link.

Here we go:

Awesome stuff, right? I was remembering passages from the book as I gazed at the images – very nicely done! ๐Ÿ™‚

Until next time,

Be EPIC!

๐Ÿ™‚ Well then, you’ll have to head on over to Dragonmount, read the post (including all the other cool info they’ve got) and then go to where you can read the first chapter. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh yes, its title is ‘Tears from Steel’. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve read it, and it’s awesome. Brandon is doing an incredible job!

News, news, news! And more!

Wow, another day goes by and there’s plenty more to tell you all about! ๐Ÿ™‚

First off, do you want to try your hand at creating your own Fantasy (or SF, for that matter) book cover? I followed a link from The Old Bat’s Belfry to this site, read the instructions, and created my own book cover! ๐Ÿ™‚ Okay, granted, it’s a bit crappy (butterflies for sails?) but it still looks cool, and the title, together with the cover, really does make the book look intriguing. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, here’s my effort:

The Power of Lodon

The Power of Lodon

The author’s name? That’s my pen-name when I write the literary stuff. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are the instructions:

CREATE YOUR DEBUT FANTASY BOOK COVER
1 – Go to โ€œBehind the Nameโ€. Hit โ€œGenerate a Name!โ€ or click http://www.behindthename.com/random/
The first name you get is your author name.
2 – Go to โ€œFantasy Novel Title Generatorโ€
or click http://nine.frenchboys.net/novel.php
This is the title of your book.
3 – Go to Photobucket and click on โ€œsurreal artโ€ or click http://photobucket.com/images/surreal%20art/
Add the two numbers of your age together (ex. 2 + 7 = 9). Go to that page of results. The fourth picture, no matter what it is, is your cover.
4 – Use photoshop, Picnik, or similar to put it all together.
5 – Post it to your site along with this text.

Pretty easy, I have to admit, and quick, too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, next up: Wheel of Time News!

There is a widget available (which I cannot put on the blog) counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until A Memory of Light hits the shelves – in November. Now, now, don’t get too excited yet! Brandon Sanderson is working on rewrites for Harriet at the moment (for those who’s been living on another planet, Harriet is Robert Jordan’s widow and his long-time editor) and hopes to have them done by April (if I’m not mistaken); coupled with that, Brandon has time and again stated that this book will be a big, thick book, and that even his projected wordcount might get tossed out the window as he progresses. The book might even be split (I know, I’d like to devour it and finish it, too, without having to wait for part two, but hey, it’s not up to us), and the first part may hit shelves in November. Either way, I think the November date is a bit premature, considering the project and what Brandon has already said about working on it.

But if it does hit shelves in November, either Part One or the full book, you can be sure of one thing – in November, forget any other book hitting the shelves at the same time – The Wheel of Time will be the biggest news of the year! ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out the announcement from Dragonmount here.

And now, back to Star Wars! ๐Ÿ™‚

Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil – I saw the announcement here, followed the link to the official site, and saw this:

Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil

Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil

I’m so glad they’ve decided to go back to the cover-style of the first book, Path of Destruction! I’m sorry, but the cover of Rule of Two was a major let-down. This looks great! ๐Ÿ™‚

And then, this:

Star Wars Fate of the Jedi Omen front

Star Wars Fate of the Jedi Omen front

This is the front cover, and now, here’s the back:

Star Wars Fate of the Jedi Omen back

Star Wars Fate of the Jedi Omen back

I haven’t warmed up entirely yet to the new style of cover art, but it’s starting to look really cool – who is that on the cover, I wonder? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here’s the announcement on the official site, and if you want them, spoilers for Omen! ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, that’s it for now, I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

Be Fantastic!

Wheel of Time: Latest News

It seems that an empire is being built. If Red Eagle Entertainment does a good job with the options they’ve purchased -staying true to the content- then the saga written by Robert Jordan will be a house-hold name pretty soon.

I for one applaud this: as a fan of the Wheel of Time, I would love to be able to ask someone if they honestly thought that Moirraine was dead or who the most kickass Forsaken is; but that all hinges upon Red Eagle doing a good job with the movie adaptation of The Eye of the World as well as making games that are true to the world Mr. Jordan created. Goodness knows, there’s enough content in the novels and no need to make up anything more.

On the games side of things, Red Eagle has made a very good move by getting EA Games in on the process. EA will be distributing the games, though, not creating them. Signing the deal tells me that EA have faith in the product, and obviously they must have been told more about what Red Eagle Games will be coming up with than was released with the Press Release; but I still have faith in Red Eagle to accomplish this.

Check out this link; it’ll take you to Dragonmount.com, where the Press Release was posted. ๐Ÿ™‚ Dragonmount has also set up dedicated message boards on which the topics (games and movies) can be discussed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Be Fantastic! ๐Ÿ™‚

The Wheel of Time Book 12 – New Interview with Brandon Sanderson

Hey Guys and Girls, Brandon has re-answered the questions posed to him last year at Dragonmount; having been involved in the Wheel of Time now for just over a year, Brandon has looked back and, believe me, if you know your stuff, it seems he’s alluding to some of the events we can look forward to in A Memory of Light! Oh, and did I mention he states who Asmodean’s murderer is? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s the link!

Be Fantastic!
