talbs Thu Dec 01
@PorterSqBooks do you good folks take suggestions for authors to bring in? Would selfishly love to get @BrandSanderson in town :).

PorterSqBooks Thu Dec 01
@talbs @BrandSanderson We’d love to have him! Tell him & his publisher he’s got a fan base here. That will help. Thanks!

talbs Thu Dec 01
@BrandSanderson, any interest in swinging on by @PorterSqBooks during your February trip to Boston? Would be great to see and support you!

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 01
@talbs @PorterSqBooks I’m interested, but I am in town for a convention, and it is their call.

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 01
San Francisco airport signed books: Hudson News (gate 40), Compass Books (gate 71). Also, Denver (A or B gates Tattered Cover) and SLC (C7)

shl Thu Dec 01
@BrandSanderson how fast do these normally go?

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 01
@shl It can take a week or so for places like SF. Big hub cities, like Atlanta, go VERY fast. Often gone in a day or two.

robthadawg916 Thu Dec 01
@BrandSanderson when you’re in the airport and pick up your own books to sign, do u have to get the ok from the people that work there?

robthadawg916 Thu Dec 01
@BrandSanderson do they just take you at your word that ur the author lol

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 01
@robthadawg916 Well, my picture IS in all the hardcovers… (Usually they just assume I’m the author, if I don’t introduce myself )

murderbooks Thu Dec 01
In case you missed it this morning, We’re taking orders for @BrandSanderson’s Mistborn Anniversary Editions! link

B_Bradley_NOLA Thu Dec 01
@murderbooks is @BrandSanderson doing another signing there soon?

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 01
@B_Bradley_NOLA @murderbooks Should be there for Stormlight 3 next fall.

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 01
Sea-Tac airport, I will sign at 2 stores. The first is by A9. Many paperbacks & 3 Arcanum Unbounded (hidden on a kiosk outside the front)

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 01
Sea-Tac airport! The FIRST THREE who visit @HudsonBooks Gate C2 get a free Stormlight pocket guide. Ask for Sandra! pic

4AssedMonkey Thu Dec 01
@tugger2k Finished the Mistborn trilogy tonight. Wonderful. Thank you and thanks to @BrandSanderson Any more recommendations you two???

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 01
@4AssedMonkey @tugger2k Black Prism by @brentweeks. Promise of Blood by @BrianTMcClellan.

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 01
If the gate C2 Sea-Tac freebies weren’t enough, look at this. See those @TheDanWells books? Yeah. I signed those t… link

jnikkir Fri Dec 02
Had an amazing time at @BrandSanderson’s signing last night. Was there until 1:30am! As always, it was a blast. Thanks again, Brandon!!

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 02
@jnikkir Thanks for taking all those pictures for folks, Nikki. 🙂

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 02
Sea-tac airport, check out the display of my books at Gate C2 @HudsonBooks! Find them here, SF airport, Denver, and SLC. New York next!

BrandSanderson Sun Dec 04
Getting to LDS church in Manhattan today was a little easier than it was in Tuscany. 🙂

cmbadiuk Sun Dec 04
@BrandSanderson It’d be just as easy in Calgary *nudge nudge*

BrandSanderson Sun Dec 04
@cmbadiuk I was there a few years back, but I’ll try to make it again. 🙂

Ayn_Skyfighter Tue Dec 06
@BrandSanderson Ideas need sometime to sit and grow before they are ready to be written. What if you have a deadline ?

BrandSanderson Tue Dec 06
@Ayn_Skyfighter Sometimes, you just can’t meet the deadline. Everyone understands. However, you CAN teach yourself to develop stories faster

BrandSanderson Tue Dec 06
@Ayn_Skyfighter It won’t always work to do so, but it is a skill most writers learn, as it is one of the marks of a professional.

BrandSanderson Tue Dec 06
Aspiring writers, we need questions to answer on writing Excuses. (You don’t need to fill out every blank.) link

BrandSanderson Tue Dec 06
The amazing artist of the Stormlight Archive @whelanmichael has a Kickstarter up for his new exhibit and art book: link

BrandSanderson Tue Dec 06
My company’s art director @IzykStewart and I both backed @whelanmichael’s new art exhibit and art book Kickstarter. link

BrandSanderson Tue Dec 06
Chicago O’Hare! I’ll hit more stores on my way out, but right now, find signed books at Barbara’s bookstore gate E5. Epic bookmarks inside!

MiEhrynn Tue Dec 06
@BrandSanderson I love that you sign books in airports as you leave them and tweet to your readers about it. It’s so endearing.

BrandSanderson Tue Dec 06
@MiEhrynn People really seem to like it, so I make an effort to leave some everywhere. The store employees are starting to recognize me.

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
Adam here. Brandon’s French readers may enjoy reading an interview he recently did with @elbakin. You’re welcome.
link

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
Okay, finished a batch of Writing Excuses episodes here in Chicago. Let’s see what we can do about that 1% left of Stormlight 3, shall we?

darci_cole Thu Dec 08
@BrandSanderson Any estimates on when beta readers get to peek? *she says with total nonchalance* cc: @PeterAhlstrom

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@darci_cole @PeterAhlstrom Shouldn’t be too much longer.

robthadawg916 Thu Dec 08
@darci_cole @BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom Beta readers? Such a thing exists? How can I get in on this… *rubs hands together*

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@robthadawg916 @PeterAhlstrom You might offer us a valuable perspective, Robbie. Contact Peter, and we’ll see if we can use you some time.

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@robthadawg916 @PeterAhlstrom Might not be Stormlight 3, it will depend on what Peter’s lists look like right now. But maybe!

mbudrovic Thu Dec 08
@BrandSanderson how to become beta reader? I’ve read everything you published.

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@mbudrovic Most are chosen because of their years in fandom, interacting on one of the fan communities. Peter does it, not I.

dreamandwonder Thu Dec 08
@BrandSanderson were you able to get your computer fixed at all?

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@dreamandwonder Yes. Had to do work with some very unruly screws, but after reseating the cords, it booted as regular.

LizWritesYA Thu Dec 08
@BrandSanderson enjoy Chicago! Sorry it’s so cold, but maybe a memorable place to get to 100% on a book? ⛄

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@LizWritesYA 🙂

candle340 Thu Dec 08
@BrandSanderson Out of curiosity, what is ‘Writing Escuses?’

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@candle340 link (My podcast for writers.)

dscrabeck Thu Dec 08
Watching a show called ‘True Monsters’ and all of a sudden @BrandSanderson shows up. #justgotbetter

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@dscrabeck Yup. Pat too. It was called True Myths when I did my recording session, which felt more appropriate. But I like the result.

ztego300 Thu Dec 08
Hey @BrandSanderson ! Why are you in Chi-town? Any chance at a public appearance/signing?

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@ztego300 It was on Tuesday, I’m afraid. (My mailing list will let you know when I’m in town–I visit once a year or so.)

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
Very close to finishing Oathbringer (Stormlight 3.) Music I’m listening to for the finale is Phil Lober’s “Alive”: link

theboonarmies Thu Dec 08
@BrandSanderson when is the anticipated sale date ? how long have I got to cram The Way of Kings & Words of Radiance back into my head?

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@theboonarmies November next year.

joshprismon Thu Dec 08
@BrandSanderson Have you played #FFXV yet? Talk about steelpushes getting incorporated into a game.

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@joshprismon Heh. No spoilers. I bought a copy, but gave my PS4 to my brother in law for the holidays, so I wouldn’t be tempted.

BrandSanderson Thu Dec 08
@joshprismon Can’t play until Stormlight 3 is done, and at least part is in the hands of beta readers.

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
That’s a wrap, folks. Oathbringer is done at 461,223 words. Still much work to do, but we have a first draft. November 2017 release date.

yafeshan Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson you are amazing author. What is the next project now

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@yafeshan Tons of revisions on this, then Apocalypse Guard (Steelheart Followup.)

WattoTony Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson Cool. Looking forward to it. Only 7 to go now yeah? 😁

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@WattoTony Ha. Don’t remind me of that right now…

loodyvip Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson congratulation BS 😊 is that means you’re going to start working in The Lost Metal soon ?

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@loodyvip Apocalypse Guard comes first. But both have to wait until this one is at least on third draft.

glen_malley Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson Does it really take that long to polish, or will it be done long before the release was set?

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@glen_malley The polish is still several drafts away. But yes, even getting it out November will be tight for a book this long.

ArgentSun Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson Obviously Chicago is good for you (and us). I think double Oathbringer tour visit is in order 🙂

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@ArgentSun Ha!

Phantrosity Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson Is it longer or shorter than Oathbringer in-universe?

Phantrosity Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson Oathbringer the book, not oathbringer the sword, though I suspect the answer is ‘longer’ for both.

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@Phantrosity RAFO.

SamSpiller666 Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson NOV!!!! FUCK YOU!!! HURRY THE FUCK UP MAKE IT APRIL!!!!

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@SamSpiller666 Dude, do you know how long it takes to revise a 2300 page manuscript?

DarthDeekay Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson so excited for book 3 as a truck driver I love my audiobooks really hope Michael Kramer & kate reading are narrating again

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@DarthDeekay They will be.

teiksim Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson You are storming amazing!!! Any plans to come to Singapore in the future?

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@teiksim No immediate plans, but I’d like to some day.

higgskatie Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson There’s a theory on Reddit that you’re a robot and that’s how you get these books out so fast.

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@higgskatie Theory has fatal flaws. Model BR1975 has aging algorithms to prove it is a real human being.

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@NeilMishra2 No, it’s longer.

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
Deadline for my BYU writing class is Dec 19. Late applications will be rejected. Details here:

blindgoatia Fri Dec 09
@BrandSanderson Looks like the traffic took his site down?

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
@blindgoatia Worked once for me but wouldn’t load the second time. Hmmmm… Sent my people an email. Thanks.

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
Chicago O’Hare airport! Barbara’s Bookstore by gate G2 is small, but still has many signed Sanderson books. Tell Lauren I sent you. 🙂

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
Chicago O’Hare, also find many signed books (with Epic bookmarks) at the large Barbara’s bookstore by gate H4. Many copies, some in Teen.

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
You guys killed the science fiction section at O’Hare Gate E5, buying all the things. I had them dig out a handful more to sign. 🙂

BrandSanderson Fri Dec 09
Apologies for the website/store outage. It’s not just our site but everything at our web host. Nothing we can do but wait….

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 12

Thanks again for all the birthday wishes, all. I’m using the day well, working on the next draft of Oathbringer. 🙂

BrianTMcClellan Mon Dec 19
@BrandSanderson Treat yo self with some Civ VI.

BrandSanderson Mon Dec 19
@BrianTMcClellan I haven’t let myself install it yet, though my brother gave it to me for my birthday. Sometime in January, probably.
