Current Projects

Aons (Preliminary)

Well, here they are. Done, in PhotoShop, by yours truly. These should change somewhat as we tweak things. (Like, I think two of them have the same name….) And hopefully they will look much better once they’re redrawn by the calligrapher. Anyway, enjoy: First Batch Second Batch


Aons and Such

Now that primary editing for ELANTRIS is done, we’ve been working on other things. Mostly, we’re talking about formatting and art. Jeff, who did the beautiful art for this website, is doing the map. We’ll talk more on that later when we get something to post. So, since Jeff’s working so hard on the map, Read the full article…


Back to Work

So. At Worldcon, I sat down with David Hartwell (a senior editor at Tor, and one of the most respected men in sf/f publishing) and asked for advice. One of the things he told me: Have a website, have a blog, and update often. I’m still working on that ‘update often’ part. . . . Read the full article…


Worldcon 2004: Ramblings

Worldcon Ramblings Well, I do have to say, the con wasn’t as crazy as I thought it would be. (More in a EUOLogy on this later.) Overall, I had a good time. I’m very glad I stayed Monday night, since my agent took me and a group out to dinner that night. Elizabeth Moon was Read the full article…


Worldcon 2004: Hugo Awards

Worldcon 2004: Hugo Awards So, the big, nice news is that a fantasy won the Hugo this year (PALADIN OF SOULS by Lois McMaster Bujold.) It was a nice awards ceremony–Neil Gaiman was the MC, and he was a riot. Honestly, that guy’s a sf/f rockstar–or, at least, the closest thing we have to one. Read the full article…


Con Report

Well, here I am with a nifty little red ribbon on my nametag, proclaiming me a program participant. I’m not sure how special that is–as Ben noted, it looks like about half the people at the con have those ribbons on. (You should see the programming list. There are about ten panels/events to choose between Read the full article…


Brandon Sanderson’s Worldcon 2004 Schedule

Brandon will be on several panels this week at Noreascon 4. The events are listed by topic with the date and convention room following. Names with (m) after then are the pannel moderators.

My First Sequel (Part Two)

Well, chapter one is done. So far so good. I tried to start with some nice motion, though the action is slowed somewhat because I have to re-explain the entire magic system in a few choice paragraphs. We’ll have to see what my readers think–I may have done too much narration in this chapter. Things Read the full article…


My First Sequel (Part One)

Interestingly enough, I’ve never written a sequel. After seven years and fourteen novels, you would think that I’d have tried a sequel at least once–but I never have, not really. (Early on, the third book I wrote was a continuation of my first book. I don’t really count it as a sequel, however, since I Read the full article…
