Annotation Mistborn Introduction

Introduction to the MISTBORN annotations

So, here we are, the annotations for my second book, MISTBORN. I hope that everyone enjoyed the Annotations for ELANTRIS. If you haven’t read the book, it’s out in paperback now, so hurray!

In case you’re not aware, this is how the process works. When I do the copy edit for one of my books–a process I find rather boring–I pause after each chapter and write out my thoughts, ideas, and impressions of that chapter. It try to talk about where the ideas came from, what my reaction is to the chapters after the fact, and what I was trying to do with some of the themes.

These are all posted for free, intended as a kind of companion to the text of the book. They’re designed so that any spoilers of future chapters are hidden. So, if you want to pause after each chapter and read what I thought on that chapter, you’re welcome. I more intend these to be used during subsequent reads of the book, however–a way to give you a little bit more value for the money.

I post about two of these a week, usually on Monday and Friday, though that isn’t exactly set. Check back once or twice a week, and you should find a new annotation that you can peruse. Beware! I don’t do a lot of proofreading on these, so they’re bound to have some typos.

Anyway, enjoy! Remember, these WILL spoil the book for you if you haven’t read it. However, they WILL NOT spoil future chapters. Anything that might be revealing of what is going to happen after the chapter of the indicated annotation is hidden. You can reveal any of this text (if there is any) by pressing the button on the top left portion of the screen.
