BrandSanderson Thu Apr 03
Tell me which you prefer: Acacia by David Anthony Durham (link) or Lamentation by Ken Scholes (link)

PatrickRothfuss Thu Apr 03
@BrandSanderson I really enjoyed Acacia. I read the text though. Didn’t listen to the audio.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 03
@PatrickRothfuss You know, I’m made curious how your audio books sound.They’re so lyrical, picking a reader must have been difficult.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 03
All right, all. Acacia it is! Thanks for your votes. I’ll let you know what I think as I listen to it.

RicOsborne Thu Apr 03
@BrandSanderson Will you listen to Lamentation at some point and tell us which you liked better?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 03
@RicOsborne I will try. I keep meaning to get to that one, and want to find a spot for it.

Songmaker41 Thu Apr 03
@BrandSanderson I am working on my first novel. Do you listen to music as you write? If so what kind?

@Songmaker41 I do. Pandora station themed with the mood of the chapter.

Tsaot Mon Apr 14
@Nickman300 @BrandSanderson Redshirts? Signed. SCALZI!

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 14
@Tsaot @Nickman300 Lol. This is the airport where I hand-sold someone Old Man’s War because they wanted sf, not fantasy.

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 14

PuckTheRipper Mon Apr 14
@BrandSanderson @PatrickRothfuss It wasn’t enough to just Brandalize your own books. You’ve become a monster, and you need to be stopped!

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 14
@PuckTheRipper @PatrickRothfuss Ha. It was Pat who signed it, not me. Should have made that clear.

Binary1313 Mon Apr 21
@seananmcguire I don’t know about that. I once saw @BrandSanderson writing in a library book. pic

seananmcguire Mon Apr 21
