Ok,resistance it’s futile: after Mistborn, The Way of Kings and SteelHeart, I now must obtain the entire bibliography by @BrandSanderson.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 01
@ErPanfi Warbreaker is free on my website, if you like ebooks. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kennyhuge08 Wed Apr 01
@BrandSanderson Mr. Sanderson this is long overdue but the Mistborn trilogy was by far the best books I have ever read in my life, Thank you

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 01
@Kennyhuge08 Thanks!

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 01

@BrandSanderson Hey Brandon! Apologies if you have answered this, but will the edits to Words of Radiance work their way into a hardcover?

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 01
@LostCadence Should be in all future printings.

AStirlingMacD Wed Apr 01
@BrandSanderson Here in Allentown you have now officially achieved the Grocery Store level of success. pic

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 01
@AStirlingMacD Wow.

MollyCluff Wed Apr 01
My crowning April Fool’s prank was telling my husband I finished Mistborn by @BrandSanderson without him, which we’ve been reading together

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 01
@MollyCluff Evil.

Darth_Hound Wed Apr 01
@BrandSanderson Is there some sort of inherent nasal problem in The Cosmere universe? Everyone keeps “snorting” every few pages. ๐Ÿ™‚ #cosmere

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 01
@Darth_Hound I picked that up from Robert Jordan, I’m afraid. ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 02
Minnesota! I’m in Minneapolis for Minicon starting today. Here’s my complete schedule.

interneth3ro Thu Apr 02
@BrandSanderson I was at the table next to you for dinner last night. I also shamelessly tweeted about it.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 02
@interneth3ro Come say hi next time. I don’t mind.

interneth3ro Thu Apr 02
@BrandSanderson I’ve always thought people bugging “celebrities” while at a dinner setting to be kinda uncool. But I will next time ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 02
@interneth3ro I would say that is the case for some, but not for me. It is always a bit of an honor for me.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 02
By the way, if you are flying through Minneapolis MSP airport, look in the Simply Books main mall (near the E and F gates) for signed books.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 02
If you are at Minicon this weekend in Minneapolis, I’m doing a writing lecture (on Magic Systems) in 15 min before other programming starts.

julianalbrandt Thu Apr 02
@BrandSanderson Will it be posted anywhere online?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 02
@julianalbrandt All my lectures from last year are on youtube. This should be very similar.

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 03
Feels good to get a chapter of Calamity written, despite being at the convention this weekend. Not sure I’ll have time for writing Fri/Sat.

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 04
Minneapolis! At Minicon I’m reading & signing today. St. Paul! I’m at Red Balloon tonight (ticketed signing). link

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 04
Saint Paul! I’m signing at Red Balloon in less than an hour. This is a ticketed signing. Details on what that means: link

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 04
In 15 min, I will be doing a signing in St. Paul at the Red Balloon bookstore on Grand. Should last two or three hours. See you there!

thewyrms Mon Apr 06
Re-‘reading’ #WheelOfTime. So good. @BrandSanderson many thanks for helping the series to a close. pic

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 06
@thewyrms It was my honor.

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 06

Had a few moments tonight, so the B&N in Orem has signed books in both the SF section and in teen. No prizes, as I forgot them. (Sorry.)

smcdougal Tue Apr 07
@BrandSanderson in SLC for a week or so. You doing any signings or anything soon.

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 07
@smcdougal Afraid not. But the airport store might have signed copies left.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 09

nilihanth Fri Apr 10
@BrandSanderson I don’t math good, but I only count 4 Mistborn books, latest of which is Alloy of Law. Help!

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 10
@nilihanth Book five is in October.

booksand_things Fri Apr 10
I got a bonus mark on my science test for knowing what an alloy was. Thank you @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 10
@booksand_things Ha. I’ve never heard of my books doing that for someone before, so consider me pleased. ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 10
A little Stormlight fan art to share, thanks Pete! link

feelieking Sun Apr 12
@BrandSanderson Do you think you’ll have time to pass through Coventry when you’re in the UK in October?

BrandSanderson Sun Apr 12
@feelieking I think I am just at the cons, but I can request to visit Coventry. We’ll see.

Kasaziak Mon Apr 13
Loving the cosmere novellas @BrandSanderson , but could you please stop with the cliffhangers?

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 13
@Kasaziak Sorry. It is hard for me not to imply what might happen next. :/

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 14
And now some Bridge 4 inspired fan music, emailed in by TJ & the other members of Dragon’s Bane: link

sniperdad420 Thu Apr 16
Hello @BrandSanderson will you acknowledge the rumors that you are a cyborg as no human could pump out as many books a year as you do?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 16
@sniperdad420 That rumor is patently false. He uses robots, not cyborgs. โ€”Sanderbot141

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 16
Atlanta! JordanCon starts tomorrow. I’m not there but Isaac & Kara have my (pre-signed) con exclusive hardcover double. link

SamJHock Fri Apr 17
@BrandSanderson Loved Sixth of Dusk! Is there a connection between Sak’s talent and Allomantic Electrum? If so, what is it? #NerdingOut

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 17
@SamJHock Yes. Reading a person’s spiritual connections and possibilities. Similar powers, as is Atium.

Geojoey99 Mon Apr 20
Hoid and Wit are the same person?! Any more hidden gems for me @BrandSanderson?

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@Geojoey99 Vasher is in Words of Radiance. Galladon is in The Way of Kings.

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
On my way to Dubai for the Sharjah Children’s Book festival. Salt lake Airport Bookstore (Gate C6) has tons of signed books with goodies inside.

yafeshan Tue Apr 21
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom did you get any such invitations from Turkey. You have a very fast growing fan base here.

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
@yafeshan I would love to visit someday. I’ve heard great things about Turkey.

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
Seattle (SEA) airport has one, lonely paperback of Words of Radiance in the Hudson News by the S Gates. (On the paperback wall) signed now.

angievcrafts Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson I just had a small minor freak out that you were in town and I was missing a signing! Heart attack! Have fun in Dubai!

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@angievcrafts ๐Ÿ™‚ I will be here for real in the fall.

TQFBB Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson I have to ask, do you just secret ninja sign, snaffling the book up and make sure no one is looking or ask proudly to sign?

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@TQFBB If it is a large store or one I visit often, I introduce myself. One like this, I stealth sign.

ericpeters Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson wait what, Why are you here and where are you?

ericpeters Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson ahh man…damn dubaiianians (spelling?)

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@ericpeters Sorry…

storeyonastory Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson What are you doing in Seattle?

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@storeyonastory Passing through to Dubai.

theofficepirate Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson let’s see if it’s there in 6 hours… leaving Boston now!

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@theofficepirate The S gates are a little off the beaten path. If you arrive there, check, but I wouldn’t take the shuttle over.

ryan20s Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson do you do book signings? Or do you just sneak in vandalize (sign) your own books.

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@ryan20s I do actual signings too, but not usually in airports.

Gimli_Ricky Tue Apr 21
@BrandSanderson That reminds me. I saw it split in two (and did not see any otherwise) in UK. Printing reason or..?

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
@Gimli_Ricky UK likes to cut the big books for a paperback release, though there’s often a combined edition also.

Gimli_Ricky Tue Apr 21
@BrandSanderson I thought there normally was. Does it follow after some time? My friend turns out to have only read part 1!

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
@Gimli_Ricky If they split the books, they release them at the same time. I honestly can’t remember if they split Words of Radiance. They did split The Way of Kings.

USFbull2281 Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson do you ever fly through ft lauderdale? I wish I could chance upon a signed book… just finished Words of Radiance… wow!

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@USFbull2281 Not often, but it is not outside the realm of possibility.

Great writing session on the flight to Dubai so far. Calamity is really shaping up. Just hit 71k words finished on the rough draft.

thegentleman4 Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson 71k words in one sitting?!

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@thegentleman4 Ha. Wow, wouldn’t that be something.

BrianTMcClellan Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson Have you thought about legally changing your name to Writey McWriterson?

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@BrianTMcClellan Well, I was thinking of going by Hatty McBeardson, but found you’d already claimed it.

samnoble Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson does this mean we get to read it in April of 2016

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@samnoble Somewhere around then, yes.

PD90 Mon Apr 20
@BrandSanderson I wish I knew about you in Dubai earlier. I am in Iran and I could’ve come to meet my most favorite author! ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@PD90 Sorry. We have had some trouble getting my schedule together, otherwise we would have posted more sooner. ๐Ÿ™

Sporadicali Tue Apr 21
@BrandSanderson will you be doing any signings, or is this a personal trip?

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
@Sporadicali Should be doing at least one signing. Watch my website for updates. (It might just be in my hotel lobby.)

VMDoug Tue Apr 21
@BrandSanderson Are you doing any signings/events in Dubai? I’m here through Wednesday night

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
@VMDoug I’m afraid if I do one (I’m likely to) it will be later in the week. ๐Ÿ™

supersoup Tue Apr 21
@BrandSanderson How many words did you write just on the flight? And how many are generally left standing after drafting?

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
@supersoup I wrote about 4.5k words today. That’s a very good day for me. 2kโ€“3k is average. And I generally cut 10% in drafting.

KristaMarino Tue Apr 21
@BrandSanderson that’s what I like to hear!

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
@KristaMarino Hello from somewhere over the Arabian desert. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now working on the outline for the last 30k. This book is going to be great.

Lindzoo Mon Apr 20
I just finished The Hero of Ages by @BrandSanderson… I think I need a hug. Me during the last 20 pages = #yearofcosmere

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 20
@Lindzoo Sorry. (Kind of.)

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
So, turns out the Arabian desert is kinda hot. Who would have guessed?

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
Also, this traffic. Wow. Slow freeways, hot desert, religious people. Makes me wonder if my plane flew in circles & landed back in Utah.

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
While in the United Arab Emirates in Sharjah, I have a panel on Thursday and a signing on Saturday. Bring your books! link

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
Just taught the final for my BYU class via Skype from a hotel room in Sharjah, UAE. So that’s a first.

jusme_thatsfine Tue Apr 21
@BrandSanderson do you have a massive deluge of of students wanting to take your class, b/c you’re you? Always wondered that.

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 21
@jusme_thatsfine It can be a little crazy.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 23
United Arab Emirates! My panel in Sharjah starts in 30 minutes. Also, bring your books for me to sign on Saturday! link

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 24
@Ahmedroid Man. Don’t tease me like that.

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 24
Well, I successfully made it to church in Sharjah, and have returned to my hotel. (Despite my driver being a little crazy.)

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 25
Spending the day working in my hotel, after going out yesterday to see museums in Sharjah. (Thanks, to those who took me.) Calamity at 75%.

ThisIsNaim Sat Apr 25
@BrandSanderson when will we get a cover reveal?

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 25
@ThisIsNaim Haven’t turned the book in yet, so it will be a little while yet.

draQeSimba Sat Apr 25
@BrandSanderson Dear Brandon. Do you foresee a fourth book? or a fifth etc? I really love the series.

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 25
@draQeSimba It is a trilogy, though it is not impossible I will return to the world for another series.

obogert Sat Apr 25
@BrandSanderson does going to more exotic local like Dubai help get the creative juices flowing better than sitting at home in Utah?

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 25
@obogert It does happen, yes. Depends on a lot of factors, like how much time I have, and how relaxing the trip is.

5aleesi Sat Apr 25

Hello @BrandSanderson any chance of a signing in Dublin, Ireland (or anywhere in Ireland) in the near future?

Dubai Airport lets you board your plane directly from the lounge? What sorcery is this?

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 28
Finally reading Lives of Tao by @wes_chu. It’s been great so far.

calebthompson Tue Apr 28
@BrandSanderson @wes_chu accidentally read it about 18 months ago and really enjoyed it. Deliberately read Deaths & look forward to Rebirths

wes_chu Tue Apr 28
@calebthompson @BrandSanderson “Great so far” and “Accidentally read it” are like two of the most Asian parent things ever said.

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 28
@wes_chu You should expect things like this for not becoming an accountant and getting a real job!

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 28
@wes_chu Lives of Tao? Why not Lives of Alpha?
