Massawyrm Mon Aug 03
You know you’re in for an odd night when you fire off a response to a reddit post and the only followup response comes from @BrandSanderson.

BrandSanderson Mon Aug 03
@Massawyrm We seem to be in the wrong thread. All the posts on the article are at /r/writing. Ah, well. Great discussion anyway.

BrandSanderson Mon Aug 03
This first scene is finally working; should be able to wrap it up this evening and regain some momentum on the book.

TravisISivart Mon Aug 03
@BrandSanderson love your self discipline & motivation. Let’s plan a chat once we’re both guests at an event. I’d love to compare notes!

BrandSanderson Mon Aug 03
@TravisISivart Sure thing!

BrandSanderson Thu Aug 06

Hossmobile Mon Aug 10
@BrandSanderson any chance at a stop at Joseph Beth in Lexington, KY?

BrandSanderson Tue Aug 11
@Hossmobile I had to split time between this and the Calamity tour in Feb. So places I didn’t hit this tour should be in spring.

BrandSanderson Mon Aug 10
Tor is rereleasing Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians, and they’re giving away ARCs. With a preview of book 5 in back. link

JRolandNeb Mon Aug 10
@BrandSanderson You’re awesome, but you’re in Denver for the Shadows of Self book tour the same night and time as @longshotauthor?! Choosing is hard!

BrandSanderson Tue Aug 11
@JRolandNeb Same night? I had no idea. Maybe I will see if we can team up.

boukedickhoff Tue Aug 11
@BrandSanderson Will the Stormlight Archive series be translated in dutch? My father loves the Mistborn trilogy but doesn’t read in english.

BrandSanderson Tue Aug 11
@boukedickhoff If my other Dutch books do well, then yes. Problem is the Dutch tend to read English so well, they buy the original editions.

dovijoel Tue Aug 11
@PeterAhlstrom any plans for @BrandSanderson to ever tour South Africa, and if not, how can it be organised?

BrandSanderson Tue Aug 11
@dovijoel Best bet is for a local comic-con or science fiction convention to invite me as a guest of honor.

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 12
Tor is giving away ARCs for Shadows of Self (the next Mistborn book). US/Canada only. link

glindsey212 Wed Aug 12
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom Beginning AMOL 1st time. Don’t want RoSouls last thing I read. Between which chapters would it ideally fit?

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 12
@glindsey212 @PeterAhlstrom Scene one: After Chapter 5. Scene two: After chapter 9. Scene three: After chapter 11. Scene four: after 12.

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 12
Took my kids to Shaun the Sheep tonight by @aardman animation. It was excellent; I wish more people were paying attention to the film.

NGriener Wed Aug 12
@BrandSanderson. What’s the conversion rate from Rosharan spheres to US Dollars?

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 12
@NGriener It’s rough to translate, since economics in Roshar are so wildly different from ours. But a diamond chip is about $.50, I believe.

LJScarpello Wed Aug 12
I wonder if creation Spren pop up when people are getting busy… @BrandSanderson ? Reading #WordsofRadiance.

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 12
@LJScarpello There’s a different spren for that.

michelleelizb Thu Aug 13
Just now I woke to my cat jumping into my bed and my first thought was I have no proof that he isn’t a kandra? @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Thu Aug 13
@michelleelizb 🙂

BrandSanderson Fri Aug 14
Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell is on sale for 99¢ for the rest of August. (At least on Kindle in the US.) link

OccamsDragon Sun Aug 16
@BrandSanderson what are a few video games that would pacify a Wheel of Time fan?

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 16
@OccamsDragon I like the Elder Scrolls for scope.

Zohar1984 Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson How many hours a day do you write?

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23

lanceschaubert Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson You won’t see this, probably, but know that @KyleTheWelch introduced me to this and I’ve already burned through 3 seasons

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@lanceschaubert @KyleTheWelch Well, thanks to you both.

lanceschaubert Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson Our pleasure. Is Prof. Farland still at it? Most of his classes seem to be closed indefinitely… @KyleTheWelch

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@lanceschaubert @KyleTheWelch I know he is doing more. Might be full for the moment.

ItsSept Wed Aug 19
I’ve waited two books for someone to use the word ‘simile’ to describe David’s ramblings #thereckoners @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 19
@ItsSept Well, technically similes are a subset of metaphor.

brhodgins Wed Aug 19
Slowly catching up on the facts of @BrandSanderson ‘s Cosmere. Mind is blown, how did I miss this?

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 19
@brhodgins Well, it is supposed to be subtle.

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 19
On my way to Spokane for worldcon. First event is a reading (probably from Stormlight 3) tomorrow at 2. See you there!

bschneb Wed Aug 19
@BrandSanderson will there be a recording for those of us that have to work instead of con?

bschneb Wed Aug 19
@BrandSanderson I’d be ok with a transcript even

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 19
@bschneb It is possible. Tor often strong arms me into letting them post these. Maybe not until after my tour though.

KomboDrop Wed Aug 19
@BrandSanderson plan on coming to Texas for any events/signings soon? I’d love to get a Stormlight preview l.

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 19
@KomboDrop October 7th in Houston.

BallFromGrace Wed Aug 19
[email protected] Any truth to the rumor that ‘Fires of Heaven’ original title was ‘F*** Outta Here’ before Jordan was asked to change it?

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 19
@BallFromGrace Sounds unlikely to me. 🙂

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 19
Signed books in the Salt Lake Airport Simply Books by gate CT. Goodies inside. (Magnets this time.)

Israelfera2 Thu Aug 20
@BrandSanderson I wish you such a force for the Stormlight series is published in Brazil . Since you have a great fan base here …

BrandSanderson Thu Aug 20
@Israelfera2 Thanks! We are working hard to get them all published there.

Xetws Thu Aug 20
@BrandSanderson Do you tell bookstore workers before you sign your books or is spyghost signing kind of an adventure itself? Big fan here!

BrandSanderson Thu Aug 20
@Xetws These days I usually tell them.

BrandSanderson Thu Aug 20
Spokane! I have two events today. Stormlight 3 reading at 2. Panel on teen fiction at 5. Details on my website events page!

stederry1 Thu Aug 20
@BrandSanderson who do I contact regarding a charity request? 🙂

BrandSanderson Thu Aug 20
@stederry1 Write through my website email form and ask to be put in touch with Kara.

5aleesi Sat Aug 22
He’s never gonna tweet me, is he :(?

BrandSanderson Sat Aug 22
@5aleesi P Sorry. I am at a convention and not watching twitter. Happy Birthday!

5aleesi Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson we’re totally on the Bruh level though, I knew it.

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@5aleesi Totally. Like, we go way back.

Jamie_M_Andrews Sun Aug 23
After being stabbed, depressed & homeless, I’m finally at the starting line. Better start blaming inspiring authors. pic

Jamie_M_Andrews Sun Aug 23
@Jamie_M_Andrews let’s blame the main culprits 1st. @brentweeks, @brandsanderson, Brian Jacques & sir Terry. Bloody Inspiring heathens…

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@Jamie_M_Andrews Good luck!

Koenigvonsiam Sun Aug 23
Why is there no IOS-game using the chalk magic from the #Rithmatist – books from @BrandSanderson ?
Would make a perfect 2-player!

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@Koenigvonsiam I don’t have the development resources or I would do one. 🙁

auntiesbooks Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson available to stop by our booth in dealer room and sign a few more books?

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@auntiesbooks I’m so sorry! I meant to, but got ushered out to the shuttle by an assistant worried about time. But I hit your airport store!

snowboardsrule Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson The election was rigged! Lord Ruler in 2016! “Beheadings you can believe in!”

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@snowboardsrule Why they would choose werewolves instead is baffling. Fleas, I tell you. Fleas everywhere.

louis_pollet Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson I’ve been wanting to thank you for finishing WoT, that makes you a bit of a hero of mine. Can’t wait to read your other work!

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@louis_pollet My pleasure!

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
Nice little selection of Sanderson books (mostly teen) in the Spokane airport Auntie’s Bookstore. Prizes inside some. pic

GavinMontano Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson when will you go to Manila? I really want to see you so bad!

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@GavinMontano Some day, I hope.

Donaithnen Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson looks like it’s inside airport security? Guess I’ll have to wait about 10 hours to grab one 🙂

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@Donaithnen 🙂 I did sign at the downtown store too.

Loveena_ Sun Aug 23
@BrandSanderson why can’t I find your books in Malaysia? üò≠

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
@Loveena_ @peterahlstrom Not sure. We will see what we can do. Ebooks should be available in English though.

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 23
Airport store in Spokane must not get many authors. They were baffled by me. Kept thinking I was some guy from corporate checking on books.

My Denver signing in October has been moved an hour earlier so you can get to @longshotauthor’s signing afterward.

JRolandNeb Thu Aug 27
@BrandSanderson @longshotauthor Wow, thanks so much! My comment actually made a difference! Looking forward to seeing you both.

longshotauthor Sun Aug 30
@JRolandNeb @BrandSanderson That’s uncommonly decent of you, Brandon, thank you. 🙂

BrandSanderson Sun Aug 30
@longshotauthor @JRolandNeb No prob! I just wish I could get to the signing myself. I am enjoying the advanced copy you sent me.

aghamedev Wed Aug 26
Hey @BrandSanderson, do physical #Mistborn purchases qualify for your free ebook offers?

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 26
@aghamedev Afraid not. I don’t own the rights to those. But Tor does have an agreement with bitlit to give discounted ebooks in your case.

BrandSanderson Wed Aug 26
@aghamedev I’d like to get to free eventually, but consider this a nice step along the way.

JM_Perona Sat Aug 29
@BrandSanderson and the Words of Radiance? I would like to get the digital book too 🙁 I bought the physical pic

BrandSanderson Sat Aug 29
@JM_Perona That is a Tor book, so the bitlit discounted ebook applies.

PeteyDanger Fri Aug 28
@BrandSanderson Kaladin has become my favorite protagonist. Please don’t have him let me down!

BrandSanderson Fri Aug 28
@PeteyDanger It’s all up to him! 🙂

gabriastro Fri Aug 28
@BrandSanderson is there any chance for an Elantris movie?

BrandSanderson Fri Aug 28
@gabriastro Yes, there is. Particularly if Emperor’s Soul does well.

JamesLawr_ Fri Aug 28
@BrandSanderson just finished reading Steelheart. What an “Epic” novel. Excuse the bad pun. Now it’s time to buy Firefight. Love your work.

BrandSanderson Fri Aug 28
@JamesLawr_ Thanks!

BrandSanderson Fri Aug 28
Great post by @ChuckWendig on rookie writing mistakes. (Warning, like most of his posts, this has strong language.) link

SeanP28 Fri Aug 28
@BrandSanderson I’m going to be in Vegas and Seattle airports next week? Signed any books at either of those recently?

BrandSanderson Fri Aug 28
@SeanP28 Afraid not. Haven’t been through Seattle since spring. Any books I left there are long gone. 🙁

JD_Tolson Fri Aug 28
@BrandSanderson , Mistcloaks are all the rage this fall I hear. pic

About 90% of the way through the Calamity (Reckoners 3) final revision. Hope to be done late tonight, wrapping up the series.

AlexClarkMcG Mon Aug 31
@BrandSanderson More Stormlight!

BrandSanderson Mon Aug 31
@AlexClarkMcG In good time. Once I finish the revisions that are due, the only thing on my plate will be Stormlight 3.

jessekoepke Mon Aug 31
@BrandSanderson Have you written any blog posts about your writing schedule? The amount of work;GOOD work;you write just amazes me.

BrandSanderson Mon Aug 31
@jessekoepke It’s not very complicated. I do a full day’s work every day, and it all seems to come together.
