With Firefight first draft done, Peter is doing a quick pass edit for me. That gives me a few days free time. Time for the Legion sequel.

@BrandSanderson Wait. No New York? 🙁 heartbroken

JennySlife87 Fri Feb 07

Still working my way through reading Jonathan Strange & Mister Norrell. I’m liking the second part a great deal more than the first.

s80t699 Tue Feb 11
@BrandSanderson I know what you mean re: Strange & Norrell, 7 hrs into 28 total audiobook and hoping for a pickup in pace

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 11
@s80t699 You’ve got a little while left to go before it picks up—started doing so for me at about 10–12hrs or so.

kharrisbob Tue Feb 11
@BrandSanderson are you reading the footnotes?

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 11
@kharrisbob Audiobook, so yes.

kharrisbob Tue Feb 11
@BrandSanderson @kharrisbob I can’t imagine trying to follow that. Are the footnotes read inline?

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 11
@kharrisbob Yes, but it’s not as hard to follow as it might sound. The narrator keeps them pretty distinct.

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 11
Working on Legion 2 while doing Firefight revisions is making it hard to keep David’s bad metaphors from bleeding into other books.

I finished Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. Overall, I enjoyed it—though the excellent narration was a large part of that. @audible_com

GrammarGirl Thu Feb 27
@BrandSanderson @audible_com Yes! The narrator for Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell was great. I enjoyed it too.

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 27
@GrammarGirl @audible_com I was so-so through the first third, but by the second third found myself really enjoying it.

zachkpearson Thu Feb 27
@BrandSanderson how did they handle the footnotes? So excited about WoR next week!

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 27
@zachkpearson They just broke the narrative and put them in right there. It worked better than it sounds like it would. Thanks for reading!

jaycrossler Thu Feb 27
@BrandSanderson @audible_com Thanks, bought it on Audible. I’d love to hear your involvement/process with narrators for your books.

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 27
@jaycrossler @audible_com I love to be involved, though we usually let the narrator come to us, rather than going to them. Most do ask us.

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 27
The book was boring—yet somehow entrancing. Can’t quite describe it. Longer explanation, & discussion, here: link

flyleaffan Thu Feb 27
@BrandSanderson I was thinking about some assumptions I have made. Are you going to write Hoid’s series in first person?

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 27
@flyleaffan I have tried it both ways in test scenes, and am undecided, but leaning toward first person.

Brian_C_AU Thu Feb 27
@BrandSanderson dear sir, i think you know that i should have an early copy of your book…. can i has?

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 27
@Brian_C_AU Enjoy! It’s not your fault if you find it somewhere early. We try to keep bookstores from selling them to be fair to others.

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 27
@Brian_C_AU But if you happened to find one, there’s no real problem. Some get out each time; count yourself lucky.
