@BrandSanderson Any recent signings at Chicago Midway Airport? 😉

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 01
@jdetrapani Afraid not. I almost always go through O’Hare.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 07
Wisconsin! This weekend I will infiltrate your local civilization in Madison, at Odyssey Con. link

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 08
Salt Lake airport Simply Books (gate C7) has about 100 signed Sanderson books W/prizes inside. (They like to be prepared for my visits.)

AKingdomofProse Fri Apr 08
If anyone needs me I’ll be rereading the last paragraph of @BrandSanderson’s The Bands of Mourning while my jaw sinks to the Earth’s core.

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 08
@AKingdomofProse Secrect History has some explanations…

“I’m @BrandSanderson. If you’re in the Salt Lake City airpirt bookstore, you’re on my turf now, sucker.” pic

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 13
@BrianTMcClellan This is the result of repeated leaving signed stock, and having it sell. There are stores in Atlanta with the same numbers.

WishyWashy4 Wed Apr 13
@BrandSanderson Hey Brandon important question, are you ever gonna bring back the goatee?

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 13
@WishyWashy4 Ha. Maybe some day.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 13
Moved the Stormlight Archive bar up a percentage point, to 48%. Inching closer to halfway done!

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 18
Oathbringer (Stormlight Archive 3) just hit 50% done on the rough draft, everyone.

MentalMegalodon Mon Apr 18
@BrandSanderson Still estimated at 400k to finish?

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 18
@MentalMegalodon Yeah, the 50% means 200k done. It might go over, but 400k is a fair estimate.

CodyHar Mon Apr 18
@BrandSanderson can you tell us anything about the first 50% that you’ve written?

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 18
@CodyHar Um…it’s pretty good?

@BrandSanderson any word on the video game?

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 18
@CoachDacc Nothing good, I’m afraid.

MatthewTwihard Mon Apr 18
@BrandSanderson please write more stories featuring @david_reckoner & @megan_tarash someday.

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 18
@MatthewTwihard @david_reckoner @megan_tarash We shall see. I’m not closed to the idea.

hugsxheart Mon Apr 18
@BrandSanderson I just read Steelheart and I want to tell you that it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read! AMAZING!

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 18
@hugsxheart Thanks!

HaydenCogswell Mon Apr 18
Hey @BrandSanderson can you sign my #stormlight hardcovers on Saturday at #jordancon2016 ? Or is that happening on just Sunday -a huge fan

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 18
@HaydenCogswell I usually have time to sign a few books after every panel, so just ask. If I’m free, I’m happy to do it.

লোচন Mon Apr 19
@BrandSanderson If, HYPOTHETICALLY, GRRM asked you to finish ASOIAF, would you do it?

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 19
@LochonR No, as I think I’d be a bad choice. Though I respect George, my style doesn’t match his very well.

lurkatus Tue Apr 19
@BrandSanderson You should make a trip down to MegaCon in Orlando one of these years!!

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 19
@lurkatus So many cons, so little time. 🙂 I’d love to go some day, but we’ll see.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 20
Atlanta! I’ll be at JordanCon this weekend with Catherine Asaro and John Picacio. Come hang with a friendly crowd! link

samanthapfield Wed Apr 20
I am now on hour #3 of looking for a book I desperately want to read but can’t remember the title or author. This is unfortunate.

samanthapfield Wed Apr 20
All I know about it:

1) Endorsed by @BrandSanderson
2) Written by a woman
3) Fantasy
4) Second book in a series
5) Released April-June 2015

TheBreeMae Wed Apr 20
@samanthapfield @BrandSanderson fantasy is not my wheelhouse, but I have powerful book friends. Hold on.

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 22
@TheBreeMae @samanthapfield Number two of a series… Uh… I did suggest some #1s. Uprooted, An Ember in the Ashes, the Fifth Season.

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 22
@TheBreeMae @samanthapfield Blanking on a book by a woman that is #2 in a series. But Uprooted was in summer 2015, I believe.

TribalInstincts Thu Apr 21
Audiobook in VR that puts you into story scenes?! 0_0 I want to be in the Eolian @PatrickRothfuss! Andromedum in VR: link

TribalInstincts Thu Apr 21
This goes for you too @BrandSanderson I want to SEE the Shattered Plains! Audiobooks in #VR will make people VERY happy!

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 22
@TribalInstincts We’ve talked about it. It’s on our radar, so to speak.

TheForlornOne Thu Apr 21
@BrandSanderson going to the SLC airport today. Where are your signed books? The hunt begins!

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 21
@TheForlornOne Gate C7 bookstore.

kuronime Thu Apr 21
@torbooks @BrandSanderson hello there! Is it possible for europeans to get a copy of this? Maybe online store? Pretty pretty please?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 21
@kuronime I will try to get some to give away.

Kaladin6 Thu Apr 21
@torbooks @BrandSanderson there’s no participating store in my country , can I get it anywhere online ?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 21
@Kaladin6 I should get some to give away on Twitter and Facebook. 🙂

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 21
On my to Atlanta! Salt Lake airport Simply Books (gate C7) is well stocked with signed books. Prizes inside!

scottlynch78 Fri Apr 22
Oh look, it’s @BrandSanderson’s live daily wordcount billboard in Manhattan: pic

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 22
@scottlynch78 Man, I thought that was the live count of people who had threatened to murder you for pushing back GB book four… 🙂

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 22
If you’re flying through Atlanta, I managed to sign a few books at the Simply Books, center of the A gates. Look in the teen section.

mpickeral Fri Apr 22
@BrandSanderson Awesome but I can’t be there until Dragoncon. Will you be back then?

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 22
@mpickeral Yup.

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 22
Just made a slight adjustment to the schedule for JordanCon and added a reading. See the full details here:

BrandSanderson Sun Apr 24
LDS services in Atlanta were very nice. Now back to JordanCon for a reading.

BrandSanderson Sun Apr 24
Atlanta airport! Find my signed books at Simply Books Gate B29, Young Adult section, next to Game of Thrones. (Yes, they have GoT in YA.)

ezdrodowski Sun Apr 24
@BrandSanderson Any chance you would be willing to Skype with some Florida Teens Read participants on 5/6 at 1 PM…just 10 min.?

BrandSanderson Sun Apr 24
@ezdrodowski I’m afraid I have to let my wife handle things like this to keep my schedule straight. Drop an email through my website. 🙂

BrandSanderson Sun Apr 24
More Atlanta airport signed books! Simply Books, center F Gates. The ever-friendly bookseller Michael will steer you well. SF/YA sections.

Destrus76 Sun Apr 24
@BrandSanderson should your books read in publication date order to best catch the little Cosmere connections?

BrandSanderson Sun Apr 24
@Destrus76 Not necessarily. I think any order will give a unique view. Pick the series that sounds most interesting.

BrandSanderson Sun Apr 24
Last ATL airport stop: New York Times Bookstore, E gates, top of escalators. Little store, lots of Sanderson. 🙂

nkjemisin Tue Apr 26
Aaaand to celebrate my Hugo nom, tonight I get to go home and copyedit ’til I fall asleep. #yaaaay #writerproblems

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 26
@nkjemisin Congrats. That book is awesome, Nora. Well deserved nomination.

scalzi Tue Apr 26
@BrandSanderson You both have well-deserved nominations! @nkjemisin

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 26
@scalzi @nkjemisin Thanks, John. My category looks awesome this year. A really good list of authors. And novel..wow, some tough choices.

nkjemisin Tue Apr 26
@BrandSanderson Thanks! And congrats on your nomination, too!

BrandSanderson Tue Apr 26
@nkjemisin I’ve started using Fifth Season in my lectures as THE gold standard for how to do second person. The whole book was brilliant.

BrandSanderson Mon Apr 25
My novella Perfect State has been nominated for a Hugo Award. Here are my thoughts on the process. link

jasonsanford Wed Apr 27
[email protected] Well said. I’ll be considering all the #HugoAwards nominees b/c many, like you, were slated without the authors’ approval.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@jasonsanford @BrandSanderson I would have been happy to if you hadn’t made that remark. Mistreated? Feh.

jasonsanford Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @BrandSanderson Agreed. It’s hard for me to say the SPs were mistreated when they launched the entire Hugo campaign (1 of 2)

jasonsanford Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @BrandSanderson But also agree with your point that we must not let hateful trolls dictate the #HugoAwards. (2 of 2)

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@jasonsanford @BrandSanderson I hope you’ll reply to me, Brandon. And not just write off the opinion of the targets as below your notice.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford I read your tweets several times, and I’m not exactly sure what it is you’re saying. Could you clarify for me?

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson @jasonsanford ceremony a reason why it’s OK to associate with them, because it makes up for their harassment of me & others

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford I thought that applauding when Toni Weisskopf and Anne Sowards lost was incredibly bad form, and made me sick.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson Yes? Does it make you sick that they calld John Chu and Ann Leckie affirmative action picks?

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky Yes. There are huge numbers of idiot loudmouths among their numbers, and they should be called on saying stupid things.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky I called them on it personally, in emails. Their bad behavior does not excuse our own.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson automatically take their side in future arguments? You are being really, really privileged here.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky I do not take their side. In my essay, I say I do not take their side. What I say is this:

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford It turned the harassment of some loudmouths around, and in turn harassed people who had not done anything.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson And it’s really shitty to turn the applause of some people around and use it to condone harassment against me.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky Rachel, I condone nothing. I’m saying that what was done hurt innocent people, and should not have been done.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson No. You said your reason for staying on the slate was because of mistreatment and applause. That’s taking a side.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky 1) Fandom reacted poorly, in my opinion, in voting No Award above deserving nominees, then applauding for their loss.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson “Because of this, I decided this year not to ask Sad Puppies to remove me from their list. “

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky Yes. Again, because of all this, I decided I wouldn’t police who put me on their lists.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky And I realized they’re jerks, but I wasn’t going to tell them they couldn’t be fans. Instead, I’d tell them not to be jerks.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky 2) Contemplating all this made me realize I shouldn’t be in the business of policing who can and can’t put my name on a list.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson OK, maybe you didn’t mean it. But youmention the applause and then say “because.” Did you misspeak?

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky As I consider, it’s probably also because they lost so resoundingly. They can control the nominees, not the actual victories.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky If who they chose actually won, we’d have an even bigger problem–as is, asking to be taken off their list seemed pointless.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson I *strongly* argue the essay suggests “because of their mistreatment, I concluded that I wouldn’t”

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky Yeah, that logical flow wasn’t the most solid. Even talking to you about it, I’m not sure my logical flow. (See last tweet.)

jasonsanford Wed Apr 27
[email protected] @BrandSanderson I hear you, & a #HugoAwards finalist story calling for your murder is prime example of the hate in all this.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@jasonsanford @rachelswirsky I’m going to assume that one is Vox, for whom I have 100% no sympathy or desire to listen.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@jasonsanford @rachelswirsky Applaud for his loss all day, and I’ll join you with bells on.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@jasonsanford @rachelswirsky The problem is driving Hugo nominees I know and respect from the room in shame, because they feel so vulnerable

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson @jasonsanford required supporitng Vox. They were in groups together. They weren’t cleanly extricable.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford SP’s refusal to denounce him was one my my biggest beefs with them, in communication with several high ups.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford But it does remain that, slate wise, SP responded to criticism and did well, while RP doubled down on hate.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson @jasonsanford I’m not entirely sure where we are. Do you understand what my objection was?

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford I do. Thank you for raising the issue. It has forced me to evaluate just what I was trying to say.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford It stars a guy from a generic fantasy world being thrust into a new world…and he intentionally carries

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson Oh, good. I’m glad to know it wasn’t exactly what you meant. I’m a bit wound up; this week has been a *lot.*

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky Yeah, I can guess why. And I suppose I should separate “Applauding in relief that Vox didn’t control the awards” from

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky “Applauding when my friends get caught in the collateral damage.” Either way, the logical flow of the essay is off.

rachelswirsky Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson @jasonsanford Also, I really loved your novella a couple years ago. Good fangirl time? 😛

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford Thanks! Though, with all this scrutiny, I’m kind of worried about the story.

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford (The new one, which Jason mentioned, that is.)

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@rachelswirsky @jasonsanford with him attitudes of the genre from back then. Hopefully, those nominating it didn’t think I was lauding those

Aiglet Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson The rules aren’t guaranteed to change – we need people to show up at the Business Meeting and make it happen!

BrandSanderson Wed Apr 27
@Aiglet Yes, I’ve been making too many assumptions. We do need to be aware and publicizing this.

Aiglet Wed Apr 27
@BrandSanderson I also happen to think that the Business Meeting is a ton of fun, but do recommend that people read the summaries from 2015.

TheDScribblerThu Apr 28
@BrandSanderson How long or how high does a title need to be in Amazon’s best seller list before a writer can use it as an accolade?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@TheDScribbler I don’t know if there’s a hardfast rule. I think a lot of people use it if it ever hits #1 in a category, even briefly.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@TheDScribbler Bestseller list titles are strange things. One of my publishers refused to use my status until I broke top 10 on the NYT.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@TheDScribbler Another used it when I hit in the #30s. I think it’s just up to you.

blooblee1 Thu Apr 28
@BrandSanderson hey, big fan of stormlight. Is the war on the shattered plains an allegory for the war in iraq?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@blooblee1 I don’t write specific allegories into my fiction, usually, but almost everything I’m thinking about makes it in in one way.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@blooblee1 So less an allegory, and more a, “I’ve been thinking about war.” The Plains take inspiration from many places, including Iraq.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
If you didn’t see, I did move Stormlight 3 up to 51% done. I’m simultaneously working on a Stormlight story this fall’s Cosmere anthology.

BucknerRyan Thu Apr 28
@BrandSanderson Sparks Brandon!! why in Calamity’s name would you stop the reckoner series there. Write us another sparking book you slaunch!!

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@BucknerRyan I will most likely do so.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@lanceschaubert Elantris, Warbreaker, Mistborn, Stormlight, White Sand. Plus the shorts, all of which will be in the collection.

@BrandSanderson Cosmere anthology?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@ian_schow Hope to have a collection out this fall, including all the cosmere short pieces in one place, along with one new one.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@hunterhon Afraid no good news.

_i_an Thu Apr 28
@BrandSanderson will this be the Lift one?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@_i_an Yes.

_i_an Thu Apr 28
@BrandSanderson can’t wait! will the anthology have the short stories that come with the games like “11th Metal” and “Allomancer Jak”?

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@_i_an Yes, it will.

TBvalasco Thu Apr 28
@BrandSanderson is Calamity truely the end on The Reckoners? No new villian? No spinoffs? It was such a EPIC storyline!!

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@TBvalasco There will be more in the universe, but I don’t want to say much yet.

PGeorge9601 Thu Apr 28
@BrandSanderson – Stormlight #3 on the shelves before Christmas? Can’t wait!

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28
@PGeorge9601 Not likely by Christmas, I’m afraid. I’ve been writing on it for eight months, and have only just barely hit half way.

ArbiterFabulous Thu Apr 28
Was watching @BrandSanderson ‘s videos. Accidentally paused at the best/worst moment. Changed the whiteboard.

BrandSanderson Thu Apr 28

@elektrotal Fri Apr 29
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom Heya, if we can’t make it to bookstore day, how can we get that stormlight companion?

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 29
@elektrotal @PeterAhlstrom I don’t know if we’ll have any. It’s a thing Tor did for the indies–we just looked it over and approved it.

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 29
@elektrotal @PeterAhlstrom It’s basically just art from the books, bound together–though it looks very nice.

@elektrotal Fri Apr 29
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom well, as a collector, gotta catch em all =) sadly I’m in transit coming home from vacation so alas

BrandSanderson Fri Apr 29
@elektrotal @PeterAhlstrom If we get any, I’ll save one for you.

CrazyAboutMtg Fri Apr 29
@BrandSanderson Two things: Reading Steelheart and love it. Also, what formats of MTG do you play?

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 30
@CrazyAboutMtg I mostly draft, whatever the latest set is, or one of my cubes.

MichaelofNorth Fri Apr 29
@BrandSanderson So since it’s free, can I just download an EPUB somewhere? I doubt if there’s a bookstore that has it near me.

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 30
@MichaelofNorth It’s a collection of artwork from the inside of the Stormlight Archive novels, I believe. All of that is on my website.

realSEyOda Sat Apr 30
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom Can Forgemastery be used to rewrite a person’s Spiritweb?

BrandSanderson Sat Apr 30
@realSEyOda @PeterAhlstrom That’s basically what Forgery always does.
