BrandSanderson Mon Dec 31
Over the weekend, I wrote a Stormlight 2 scene while recording my screen w/Camtasia. I’ll post it soon so you all can watch. @chrismlarson

ImitheImba Mon Dec 31
@BrandSanderson @Waterstones this makes me laugh every time I see it! It’s been this way for months! pic

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 31
@ImitheImba @Waterstones Well, at least it’s not Brandon Anderson, which is how I’m often written… :)

ek_johnston Mon Dec 31
We received our copies of A MEMORY OF LIGHT today. I didn’t have to lift them, thank goodness. Almost time! @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 31
@ek_johnston :)

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 31
Earlier this year I sat down for a video interview. It’s 20 minutes long and talks about getting my start as a writer. vid

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 31
A reminder that the AMoL midnight release’s Q&A will be at 8:00 p.m. on January 7th at Provo High with Harriet. link

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 31
Three new Writing Excuses episodes are up, rounding out the year. Secret Histories & the changing publishing industry. link

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 31
New blog post up about various things including the Waygate Foundation’s campaign to (in part) support Worldbuilders. link

KevinWagnerPhD Mon Dec 31
@BrandSanderson Any chance you go back to Legion really enjoyed that short story.

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 31
@KevinWagnerPhD Thanks! Hope to expand it in the future.

yedidyashabat Mon Dec 31
@BrandSanderson do you know of any midnight releases for AMOL in the IL area?

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 31
@yedidyashabat @alexcearl I don’t, I’m afraid. The only midnight release I know of for sure is the one I set up.

ClaytonBoyd_SA Thu Jan 03
@BrandSanderson excited about “Memory if Light” in a week. Any idea about book 2 of Stormlight Archive?

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 03
@ClaytonBoyd_SA Next fall, hopefully.

AndyLee19261637 Thu Jan 03
@TheDanWells @BrandSanderson I’m so excited about the AMol launch just wanted to try my luck and ask you both how awesome is it?

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 03
@AndyLee19261637 @TheDanWells Ah, only imagine if Dan HAD written it. Could the Earth contain that much awesome?

Brad_Kingon Thu Jan 03
@BrandSanderson Due to the publishers taking long, I was told that I can only get AMOL next month in South Africa… very dissapointed

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 03
@Brad_Kingon :( I’m sorry to hear that. Aren’t there some Amazon-like sites that ship worldwide?

Davejkemp Thu Jan 03
@BrandSanderson Any events taking place on the Saturday or Sunday for the release #AMOL coming from toronto and looking for something to do

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 03
@Davejkemp Well, the group waiting in line are a very friendly bunch, and you may want to go say hi to them. I’ll stop by there eventually.

feelieking Thu Jan 03
@BrandSanderson PS. if we ever do manage to have dinner, we should talk about the Ship of Theseus. [Note: Brandon references this in Alcatraz 2.]

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 03
@feelieking :)

drunself Thu Jan 03
@BrandSanderson Confused about the BYU AMOL release. Are you only personalizing 100 books?

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 03
@drunself No, I’ll stay and personalize as long as people are there wanting me to do so.

blythr330786 Thu Jan 03
@BrandSanderson finished my WOT reread a week too early. Killed some time until Tuesday reading Legion and The Emperor’s Soul. Great stuff

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 03
@blythr330786 Thanks!

ultima_lx Thu Jan 03
@BrandSanderson just finished the mistborn trilogy and it was fantastic. Can’t wait for the wheel of time release.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 03
@ultima_lx Thanks for reading!

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 03
There’s an interview with me up over at Goodread
s. link

ZackLexCrow Fri Jan 04
I read once that there would be a MatTuon series post-last battle. Is this true, @BrandSanderson ?

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 04
@ZackLexCrow There was going to be, as RJ was planning to do one, but without him Harriet has no plans to continue on after AMOL.

Davejkemp Fri Jan 04
@BrandSanderson how big is the line already? Super impressed with the dedication

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 04
@Davejkemp 8 or 10 people, I think. It will grow larger once Friday is here and people are off of work.

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 04
Are you a Worldcon member considering your Hugo nominations? Send me an email to get THE EMPEROR’S SOUL for free. link

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 04
There’s another interview with me over at SFX. link

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 04
I sat down to chat with John Harkness at LibertyCon a few months ago. Here’s the video. vid

stayawesome Sat Jan 05
I did not know @BrandSanderson had jumped onto the treadmill desk bandwagon. Thinking of doing the same, but need more space.

BrandSanderson Sat Jan 05
@stayawesome It’s pretty awesome.

xolotl92 Sun Jan 06
I’m not going to lie to you @BrandSanderson I was worried when you took over #wot but you have done great. 1 more day! #amol

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
@xolotl92 Thanks. It has been an honor.

interneth3ro Sun Jan 06
@BrandSanderson Any info on when AMOL will be available on iBooks?

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
@interneth3ro It will be a few months, I’m afraid. Harriet’s decision, not Tor’s or mine.

kevmatwill Sun Jan 06
@BrandSanderson Will AMOL be on iBooks on the 8th?

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
@kevmatwill No, I believe it is April. Harriet insisted. I tried to get it simultaneous. This was the compromise.

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
Warning: Churchiness follows! Just saw Bruce R. McConkie’s final testimony (from back in 1985) for the first time. Wow. vid

howardtayler Sun Jan 06
@BrandSanderson Amazing, isn’t it? AMAZING. We watched it when I was in the MTC.

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
@howardtayler Yeah. I’m surprised I missed it. 18 months of cancer, this, then dead in about a week. Gave me chills.

verinSedai Sun Jan 06
@BrandSanderson Oh no, no church for me. i might fall asleep. Oh man, i’m horrible.

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
@verinSedai Lol. :)

TAlanHorne Mon Jan 07
@BrandSanderson I’m super surprised you haven’t heard it before. It’s, like, everywhere in the Church.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
@TAlanHorne Yeah, I’ve heard it mentioned–but just never watched/heard it.

jmmath Sun Jan 06
Hey @BrandSanderson will you give @amazon permission to deliver AMOL 1 day early. I’m off Tues but @UPS never gets to my house before 5

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
@jmmath @amazon @UPS Ha. I don’t mind, honestly, but I doubt saying so will make a difference…

dasanimal Sun Jan 06
@BrandSanderson have you ever considered writing a prequel to the WoT? Something during the Trolloc wars or earlier? It has potential

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
@dasanimal I think it would be a bad idea–not that it would be a bad story, but that we shouldn’t exploit RJ’s legacy.

SUNNYCR0W Sun Jan 06
@BrandSanderson I may have miscalculated. I just started rereading EotW today. I don’t think I’ll get through the rest before aMoL arrives

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
@SUNNYCR0W Lol. Awesome.

IvanTheCow Sun Jan 06
@BrandSanderson A little over 24 hours till AMoL, I just wanted to say thank you in advance for pausing some of your stories to finish this.

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 06
@IvanTheCow It has been a true pleasure.

thedoctor1971 Mon Jan 07

Reckon I can reread the first 13 books before book 14 comes out Tuesday? @BrandSanderson #amemoryoflight #robertjordan

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
@thedoctor1971 Uh… Well…

sarah_dane77 Mon Jan 07
@BrandSanderson any idea when A Memory of Light will be released in South Africa?

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
@sarah_dane77 I’m not sure, but Book Depository ships worldwide for free. I’ve heard the South Africa release might be slow.

FC_Ag07 Mon Jan 07
@BrandSanderson at 11:52 PM on 11/6/13, I finished reading The Wheel of Time. To Robert Jordan, you, and all of team Jordan…Thank you.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
@FC_Ag07 It has been an honor. The epilogue as it stands now is the sequence I read 5 years ago–the last part that RJ left for us.

H4R5Hagarwal Mon Jan 07
@BrandSanderson I have pre-ordered AMOL , publisher Orbit. Is there a content difference? Since the page count differs from that of the Tor

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
@H4R5Hagarwal No content difference.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
Today’s Tor newsletter has articles from Harriet & me and Dragonmount’s Jennifer & Jason, about A MEMORY OF LIGHT. link

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
Harriet and I also appeared very briefly on NPR. Wow, they…cut a LOT out of the interview. :) link

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive reveal of the cover for my YA dystopia STEELHEART coming in out September. link

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
Tor.com has put up the prologue and first chapter of my YA fantasy THE RITHMATIST, coming out in May. link

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
It’s been pointed out that NPR does have Harriet’s & my full interviews further down the page in the left column. link

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
The midnight release’s reading/Q&A with Harriet and me will be at the Provo High auditorium at 8:00 p.m. today. Map: pic

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 07
Quick blog post on tonight’s Q&A location, THE RITHMATIST preview, STEELHEART cover, Writing Excuses new season. link

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
AMOL is out today! Yay! On my way to the airport after a brief night’s sleep. See some of you tonight in the Twin Cities.

AndyLee19261637 Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson would love to get my copy signed are you back in the uk this year?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@AndyLee19261637 Hopefully this fall.

ZBurmeister Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson Why such a delay for the ebook release?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@ZBurmeister Harriet is uncomfortable with ebooks. She wanted a year delay. We talked her into a few months.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
We DID record the reading/Q&A with Harriet last night, and will be posting it soonish.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
Traveling through Salt Lake City airport? Signed copies of AMOL (and TGS/TofM) in the Simply Books at the end of the C gates.

brentweeks Tue Jan 08
And I have yet to meet an SFF writer who thinks they could have done a better job finishing the WoT than @BrandSanderson has done.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@brentweeks Thanks, Brent. And congrats on making just about everyone’s “best books of 2012″ list. You deserve it.

krispyfresh Tue Jan 08
Super annoyed that ebook versions of AMOL don’t come out until April 9th. Own all the other books in ebook form. @torbooks @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@krispyfresh @torbooks I wish it were our choice. Harriet insisted.

NateSpec Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson I’m still midst a WoT re-read, would you recommend I finish my re-read or read summaries (which ones?) in prep for AMOL?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@NateSpec Finish the reread. Just watch out for spoilers!

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
Jumped on the internet on the plane flight. Thought “I’ll check my email quickly.” Ten billion new emails. Oh, right. New book out…

Monkeyboy723 Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson sorry, I was overly excited about the book. My bad.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@Monkeyboy723 Ha. No, it makes me feel loved. Thanks! Unle
ss you sent them all. Then you are scaring me.

Houston593 Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson how do you handle that? Interns? You can’t possibly read them all yourself.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@Houston593 I try to at least look all of them over. Most can be answered quickly with a pre-written email.

scalzi Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson HUMBLEBRAG SOME MORE, BRANDON.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@scalzi WHAT DO YOU KNOW? YOU’RE JUST A DIRTY SELL-OUT! SCALZIIIII!!!! :)

zizban Tue Jan 08
I am taking bets on the impending @scalzi and @BrandSanderson knife match.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@zizban @scalzi @KWRamsey Scalzi writes SF. He’d bring a laser rifle. This is why I only taunt him from 30k feet in the air.

scalzi Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson IT’S A COHERENT BEAM, FANTASY BOY. ONLY THE CURVE OF THE EARTH WILL SAVE YOU NOW @zizban @KWRamsey

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@scalzi @zizban @KWRamsey … Did you just call me your “fantasy boy?” I don’t quite know how to take that.

Itsjustbeej Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson Really??? Then why isn’t it on my Nook?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@Itsjustbeej Harriet insisted it be delayed on ebook.

Itsjustbeej Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson Did anyone ask her why no ebook? Did she answer?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@Itsjustbeej She is worried ebook sales would cause the hardcover to not sell enough to hit #1 on the bestseller lists.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@Itsjustbeej I disagree, as does TOR, but it is her decision. Longer explanation on my blog tomorrow.

Zoe_MM Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson Wow, anger about the ebook is brutalizing those Amazon ratings.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@Zoe_MM Always does. I wish they would realize Tor couldn’t change this, nor could I.

Theoryland Tue Jan 08
Attending an #AMoL book signing event? If so, make sure to ask @BrandSanderson for a unique signature. Make him think. #hcff

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@Theoryland Just for that, each time an HCFF asks me this, I’m going to write something about you dying violently.

Serradarc Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson Do you have a current list of M:tG cards you want? Going to the signing tomorrow in Skokie, IL and might bring a present.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@Serradarc You don’t need to do that! But my cube is still missing both a Tangle Wire and a Tooth and Nail. They’re hard to find, though.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
For those asking where I’ll be tonight in the Twin Cities area, it’s the Roseville B&N. link

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
Supposed to be there at 7, but the plane was delayed a bit. Probably won’t arrive until 7:30. But Harriet should be there at 7:00.

JessWaltman Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson Will there be any trips to the South? Memphis area?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@JessWaltman Some places in the south. Look on the events page linked above. But not Memphis, I’m afraid.

grantosan Tue Jan 08
Question: Movie? Answer: Universal has the rights and has had them for more than 5 years. @BrandSanderson #AMoL #WoT

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
Hey, all. @grantosan on twitter is live tweeting tonight’s Q&A with Harriet! Cool. I’m still on my way.

RabidNewz Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson Wishing Brandon Sanderson would make a book tour stop in St. Louis, Missouri.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@RabidNewz I think I was there on my last tour. So I make it occasionally.

anaverageasian Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson I Love You #amol

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@anaverageasian :)

sebulr Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson You’ve made a long time Wot fan of a similar age to yourself very happy today. Been listening to AMOL for most of the day.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@sebulr :)

jwenarts Tue Jan 08
At the amol book signing. Can’t wait to meet @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@jwen84 Will arrive soon, I hope.

trishastl Tue Jan 08
Ahhh…bittersweet. The end of an era. A Memory of Light, final Wheel of Time in our hands. Thanks @BrandSanderson pic

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@trishastl It has been an honor.

frequentlyrare Tue Jan 08
Finally, A Memory of Light. 20 years from beginning to end for me. Strange and exhilarating to be holding this book @BrandSanderson #AMoL

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@frequentlyrare I know how you feel.

georgieogletree Tue Jan 08
Tweeps. Look. Oh my. I’m exploding with glee. Thank you, Robert Jordan and thank you @BrandSanderson pic

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@georgieogletree Enjoy!

johnbutler Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson I want you to know how disappointed I am that I’m out of town when you’re visiting MPLS. Hands down my favorite author.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@johnbutler Consider this a virtual handshake, then. Next time in person.

Chainglass Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson Just finished #AMemoryOfLight and it was fantastic. Well done, sir.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@Chainglass It has been an honor.

peterjanelle Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson Sorry I’ll miss you in Roseville, but I’m sitting in an armchair with my copy of #AMOL right now

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@peterjanelle Well, I certainly can’t blame you. :)

RustiestSpoon Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson First time I’ve been able to swing a visit to Lex KY for a WoT signing, couldn’t be any more excited. See you Friday night!

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@RustiestSpoon See you there!

anaverageasian Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson are you going to be in on the encyclopedia just mentioned? We are all dreading a big white book repeat.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@anaverageasian Harriet and Team Jordan have it well in hand, and will do a far better job than I could.

jarrenb Tue Jan 08
. @BrandSanderson Some light reading for tonight #AMoL pic

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@jarrenb Be sure not to drop it on any household pets.

NickTimakondu Tue Jan 08
@BrandSanderson #AMoL not available on kindle until April? What a stupid decision.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 08
@NickTimakondu I’m afraid my hands are tied. Harriet insisted.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
Tonight I’ll be in the Chicago area, Skokie B&N. I’ve heard it’s a ticketed event; call the store for details. link

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
I’m on the latest WIRED Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast talking about the book. link

Jayroo5245 Wed Jan 09
Totally almost bailed on work today. I have way more important things to do then earn a living #wheeloftime @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@Jayroo5245 :)

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
My thoughts on the release of A MEMORY OF LIGHT, with some frequently asked questions. link.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
Off to Chicago for my signing tonight. This IS a ticketed event. Details on my website events page.

sunraven01 Wed Jan 09
@Pixelfish @brandsanderson @nicktimakondu I also do not buy physical books any longer. Just found out no AMOL ebook and I’m disappointed.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@sunraven01 @Pixelfish @brandsanderson @nicktimakondu See the end of my blog post today.

andrewsmluke Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson No Los Angeles area visits any time soon, eh?

class='brtw'>BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@andrewsmluke LA is tough, since I always hit San Diego for the excellent bookstore there.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@andrewsmluke I could spend a week just in California touring.

andrewsmluke Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson Totally understand. But keep in mind that there’s a Mysterious Galaxy in Redondo Beach–maybe mix it up next time?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@andrewsmluke I have asked about going there, actually, and hope to make it eventually. :)

Japadua Wed Jan 09
This will be the last time I will experience a #WheelofTime book for the first time. Can’t help feeling a bit of sorrow. @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@Japadua I know that feeling.

JakeDeGroot Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson Thanks for coming to MSP last night for the book signing. I made it home safe to SD at 5am.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@JakeDeGroot :)

davetron Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson check your PMs, when you get a minute (I know things are crazy for you right now!) :)

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@davetron Will do.

iamparag7d Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson Brandon, i am a fan from India. Love your Mistborn series :-) congrats on completing WOT. Look forward to reading it

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@iamparag7d Thank you! Hope you enjoy the final book.

Jayroo5245 Wed Jan 09
Thank you @BrandSanderson for completing the #wheeloftime of time. Can we expect to see a movie anytime soon??? PLEASEEEEE!

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@Jayroo5245 Universal pictures has a film in development.

TheAdairBear Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson So I just got to the B&N in Skokie and learned that in order to get AMoL signed it must be bought at a B&N. #heartbroken

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@TheAdairBear Can you buy a different book? I don’t know how this works. These days, everyone has different rules.

dyve Wed Jan 09
#amol @torbooks Please release A Memory of Light in electronic format cc @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@dyve See the end of my blog post today. Nothing I can do, I’m afraid.

dyve Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson Thanks for your openness. This says “rankings are more important than readers”, but your explanation helps. #ebooks #amol

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@dyve Well, harriet doesn’t *get* ebooks. She thinks they’re like paperbacks. She figures if ppb readers will wait, why not ebook readers?

Lady_Cariad Wed Jan 09
Ok that’s it I have a new @BrandSanderson book on my #kindle so going to call it a night *waves*

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@Lady_Cariad Enjoy!

CorenaJS Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson Listening to AMoL audiobook & I keep jumping up to yell at no one then rewinding to hear what I missed. Its fantastic :)

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@CorenaJS Thanks!

Songmaker41 Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson Just finished AMOL this morning. Words can’t express my thanks.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@Songmaker41 It has been an honor.

Tyrone_teh_Coon Wed Jan 09
Whoever forgot to air-freight #AMemoryOfLight to RSA deserves to be skinned and dragged behind a car! @BrandSanderson, sharpen up, buddy!

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@Tyrone_teh_Coon South Africa, I assume. I don’t know what is up there. Book depository ships worldwide for free, though…

casl1976 Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson coming anywhere near jersey or Philly?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@casl1976 NYC later in the year. I can’t remember about Philly.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@ilovemydanish It has been an honor.

AndrewMGerrard1 Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson I’m re-reading from the start and am only at CoT so will not get to MoL for a bit. will your blog have spoiler warnings ?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@AndrewMGerrard1 I try to stay away from any spoilers, but if I post any, I will include a warning.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
Traveling through Minneapolis/St Paul? I managed to visit and sign AMOL at 3 of the 4 airport bookstores (Main concourse and C gates.)

Andrew_Dickie Wed Jan 09
@BrandSanderson how about you come to my house and *randomly* sign mine?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 09
@Andrew_Dickie Well, I was outside your window the other night, but it just felt a little TOO intrusive to come in.
