The only thing better than wining this code is opening Facebook and seeing the note “Brandon Sanderson messaged you”!!!!



Before Sanderson, the word “preorder” had no meaning for me. Now, he could publish a treaty on boredom in 50 volumes and I’d gladly preorder them all. Thank you for providing such amazing readings!

If you ever get the chance to go to a book signing, do it. Brandon Sanderson does readings unlike other authors; he reads unpublished material. No spoilers involved, and always well written.

Totally stoked for Words of Radiance. I think it’s messed up the Reckoners didn’t wear white on the day they were to kill a king – Steelheart. Guess they’re not as cool as Parshendi. Love your work BS
