BrandSanderson Tue Feb 03
I sat down with PW Radio to talk about Firefight. link

SheldonMenery Thu Feb 05
Fiction prof assigned us to read something on our “not school” list (pretty awesome of her), so it’s @BrandSanderson ‘s The Way of Kings.

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 05
@SheldonMenery Should I make a joke about you only being able to read the letters used in the main character’s (aka commander’s) name? 🙂

BrandSanderson Sat Feb 07
On my way to Taiwan! Restocked the signed books in the Salt Lake Airport. Simply Books by gate C6. Prizes inside most books!

FeekiLin Sun Feb 08
@BrandSanderson Looking forward to seeing you on Friday!

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
@FeekiLin 🙂 Me too, Feeki!

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
In the Tokyo airport. Haven’t found any books to sign, but the Skyclub has this wonderful Engrish gem. pic

obogert Sun Feb 08
@BrandSanderson your always flying somewhere, what do you do with all the frequent flyer miles?

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
@obogert The sad thing is, I travel so much, I don’t want to use the miles because it would mean more flying.

Thompson42K Sun Feb 08
@BrandSanderson have any plans in Taiwan besides the Book Expo? Couple of expats/fans living outside of Taipei would like to know!

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
@Thompson42K I might very well have time. Not sure quite yet.

Sakaiti Sun Feb 08
@brandsanderson Hi do you have any input on the Winter Dragon thing airing on FXX early Monday morning?

KaitlinGulstad Sun Feb 08
@Sakaiti @BrandSanderson I asked his assistant @PeterAhlstrom about it but it’ll air before they reply so toss the dice and hope it’s good

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
@KaitlinGulstad @Sakaiti @PeterAhlstrom I first heard about it an hour ago. I don’t think Harriet was involved either.

KaitlinGulstad Sun Feb 08
@BrandSanderson I hugged you in MN cause you gave WoT much more than we ever could have hoped for. Thank you for Tarmon Gaiden. For it all

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
@KaitlinGulstad It has been an honor. 🙂

KaitlinGulstad Sun Feb 08
@BrandSanderson The honor is all mine in getting to read your hard work. Will you be watching Winter Dragon?

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
@KaitlinGulstad I’m in Tokyo right now, so probably not. But I hope someone records it.

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
A WoT show is apparently airing tonight. I know nothing about it, & agree with Dragonmount’s assessment: link

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
It appears that Dragonmount is down. (See last post.) Basically, neither I nor (I think) Team Jordan were involved. (More.)

BrandSanderson Sun Feb 08
This is likely a move by the people with the rights to produce something quick to keep control. But who knows. I first heard of this today.

oraymw Mon Feb 09
@BrandSanderson Perhaps mention that the director was passed away in a car crash a few days ago. Would be good for fans to be gentle.

BrandSanderson Mon Feb 09
@oraymw Good point.

earthtojenni Mon Feb 09
@BrandSanderson Your blurb is incorrect – it says “High Epic, Regalia, also known as, Firefight” #firefight pic

earthtojenni Mon Feb 09
@BrandSanderson …I don’t mean to be anal (but I kind of do), there should be a space between ‘of’ and ‘Manhattan’. #firefight

BrandSanderson Mon Feb 09
@earthtojenni I know. I’m kinda annoyed… (sorry for the mistakes. We need to be better at making the publisher send us covers early.)

fartski Mon Feb 09
@BrandSanderson Welcome back to Taipei. Any details on your appearance at TIBE Friday, or elsewhere? Little info on TIBE or your site.

BrandSanderson Mon Feb 09
@fartski I will try to post more info soon. Don’t have any right now.

andrew_gott Mon Feb 09
@BrandSanderson what are your thoughts on the Wheel of Time “pilot”?

BrandSanderson Mon Feb 09
@andrew_gott I am in Asia and was unable to watch. But Harriet is not pleased.

ShaftsWord Mon Feb 09
@BrandSanderson Please please please, tell us what David’s Epic name would have been.

BrandSanderson Mon Feb 09
@ShaftsWord You have seen it used in the books somewhere.

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 10
So, uh, Taiwan. Let’s talk about your bathroom mirrors and guys who are 6’1″. pic

BrennanML Tue Feb 10
@BrandSanderson As someone who is 5’3, I feel sweet sweet vindication in this moment. This is my vengeance for a thousand high cabinets.

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 10
@BrennanML 🙂

mouse76229 Tue Feb 10
@BrandSanderson Welcome to Taiwan!! 😀

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 10
@mouse76229 Thanks!

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 10
Hey, Ireland. I found your potato. pic

DeekeVRW Tue Feb 10
@BrandSanderson Hi Brandon! Might you have any quick advice for prospective fantasy writers? It’s my dream to craft an epic fantasy series!

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 10
@DeekeVRW Best advice I can give is on my podcast, Writing Excuses. I also recorded my university lectures. link

BrandSanderson Tue Feb 10
Time for me to get some XiaoLongBao. These things are incredibly tasty. pic

BrandSanderson Wed Feb 11
It’s #Audies2015 time, and I get to announce the nominees for the Solo Narration, Male category. Congrats to all six! pic

BrandSanderson Wed Feb 11
Spending the day at the National Palace Museum. We just saw a piece I once had described to me as “The Mona Lisa of cabbages.”

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 12
Fans have been asking about my schedule at the Taiwan Book Expo. Most of my events are on Saturday, and I will post a schedule soon. (more)

oopsireadagain Thu Feb 12
@BrandSanderson Any plans on going to the Philippines? EEK

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 12
@oopsireadagain Not currently. (Sorry.) I usually travel overseas for conventions, so if you know one that brings in authors, suggest me. 🙂

oopsireadagain Thu Feb 12
@BrandSanderson What if a bookstore invites you for a signing though? Not a convention? *crosses fingers*

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 12
@oopsireadagain Unfortunately, that’s not usually enough. Conventions cover expenses and often provide an interpreter, you see.

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 12
Tomorrow I’ll be doing a fan meet & greet in the evening. (I believe it starts at 7:00.) We’ll be playing games. Don’t know the location yet

Creativindie Thu Feb 12
@BrandSanderson would love to come to the meetup if still happening

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 13
@Creativindie Turns out that the publisher says it full. 🙁 I didn’t know there was a cap. So sorry.

BigESeezy Thu Feb 12
@BrandSanderson hey Brandon r u ever gonna make ur way over to Michigan for an event? Theres at least one person here whos dyin 2 meet you

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 12
@BigESeezy I made it to Detroit a few years back. I can see myself returning.

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 12

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 12
Taiwan! We have posted a list of my events at the book expo tomorrow. See my events page for details: link

Thompson42K Thu Feb 12
@BrandSanderson Is meet and greet still on for tonight?

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 13
@Thompson42K Turns out that the publisher says it full. 🙁 I didn’t know there was a cap. So sorry.

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 13
My Schedule for the Taipei International Book Exhibition
link

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 13
My Taiwan appearance in about an hour is a reading and Q&A. Time is tight after, so come to the bookstore at 7 if you want books signed.

ScottKing Fri Feb 13
@BrandSanderson Which is your most popular book over there?

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 13
@ScottKing Mistborn.

Thompson42K Fri Feb 13
@BrandSanderson any chance you know which Eslite? And is there a cap for the signing?

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 13
@Thompson42K Xin Yi, I am told. 3rd floor. I plan to sign as long as it takes to get to everyone.

xatsume Sat Feb 14
Hi @BrandSanderson I was just wondering if the Eslite bookstore you’re going to be in also in Nangang?

BrandSanderson Sat Feb 14
@xatsume I was told it is the “xin yi” store, third floor.

jeremyteg Sat Feb 14
Gonna go buy a book and try to get @BrandSanderson to write on it at Eslite. I hope I go to the right Eslite.

BrandSanderson Sat Feb 14
@jeremyteg Xin yi store third floor, if I understood right.

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 19
Chicago, see you tomorrow. I found out it’s a ticketed signing: to get books signed, buy any book there that day. link

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 20
Chicago Signing Tonight. Huzzah!

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 20
Salt Lake Airport bookstore is fully restocked with signed Sanderson books. Gate c6. Prize inside each book!

msaagman Fri Feb 20
@BrandSanderson Just landed!! Are you here??! Please please please.

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 20
@msaagman Also, sorry to miss you. It was a close thing.

msaagman Fri Feb 20
@jaminsontoyou @BreofLocksley Finally was able to track down some signed copies. Thanks @BrandSanderson pic

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 20
@msaagman My pleasure!

haleshannon Fri Feb 20
@BrandSanderson Are you here? I’m here! B gate.

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 20
@haleshannon Just landed in Chicago, actually. Where I believe I almost snuck in to see your signing last year.

ablenumbersix Fri Feb 20
@BrandSanderson you walk in and just start signing books till security asks whats up, or do the people working there know what’s going on?

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 20
@ablenumbersix At this point they know me by sight.

ThatCosmicHobo Fri Feb 20
Hi @BrandSanderson I’m researching fantasy/general fiction trends/tropes in 2015/2016 and what publishers are looking for now. Can you help?

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 20
@ThatCosmicHobo Epic fantasy is less trend driven than some other genres. A well told story with an inventive setting always wins.

ThatCosmicHobo Fri Feb 20
@BrandSanderson Thanks Brandon. I really appreciate you getting back to me. You, Dan & Mary have been great. Give Howard a nudge please. 🙂

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 20
@ThatCosmicHobo I have been seeing a lot of flintlock fantasy lately. Perhaps that is a trend.

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 20
Chicago OHA! I signed books @ Barbara’s Bookstore, gate e3. Be sure to check the teen section for Firefight. Signing at Anderson’s tonight!

yarell Mon Feb 23
@BrandSanderson Why is the Kindle edition of “Words of Radiance” $5 MORE than the paperback edition? #confused pic

BrandSanderson Mon Feb 23
@yarell Pb isn’t out yet. Kindle edition should drop to paperback prices (rather than hardcover prices) when the paperback comes out.

BrandSanderson Wed Feb 25
The Librarian at the school I’m visiting just gave me the coolest thing ever. Kurt Vonnegut plushie. pic

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 26
Chicago Airport (ORD) has signed books! Bookstores by gates: E3, G1, and H/K3 (that one runs between two terminals.) Prizes inside.

Permaculture123 Thu Feb 26
@BrandSanderson Are you doing this incognito or are you telling the stores you are doing it??

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 26
@Permaculture123 Half and half. Chicago has great airport bookstores, so I introduce myself.

AUTigerGSUEagle Thu Feb 26
[email protected] There have been llamas on the news, now captured, and WHERE HAS MISTBORN LLAMA BEEN TO SAVE THEM!?!?

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 26
@AUTigerGSUEagle Obviously, he was robbing their homes while they were out.

marilee_waters Thu Feb 26
@BrandSanderson I notice that you and other authors travel a lot for book signings, etc. How do you find the time to write?

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 26
@marilee_waters I ask myself that a lot lately… Truth is, most of us struggle with the balance.

migdaldovid Thu Feb 26
@brandsanderson why do you only autograph Chicago airport books?
Spread the love!! (i.e. detroit,newark NJ

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 26
@migdaldovid I sign wherever I’m flying. I’ll sign at Detroit or Newark when I fly through there. 🙂

BrandSanderson Thu Feb 26
@migdaldovid Also note that some airports, like JFK, don’t have bookstores that carry sf/f novels–so there’s nothing for me to sign.

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 27

Coritez Fri Feb 27
@BrandSanderson I have purchased everyone of your books. Can you tell me how many books Storm Light Archives will be? Release timeframe?

BrandSanderson Fri Feb 27
@Coritez Two 5-book sequences. New book every two years.

TheDanWells Sat Feb 28
On the recommendation of @wes_chu I am trying Endless Legend, a Civ-style fantasy game. It’s amazing, and I suck at it.

wes_chu Sat Feb 28
@TheDanWells Excellent. Which race are you trying first? And is @BrandSanderson getting in on it too?

TheDanWells Sat Feb 28
@wes_chu I tried necrophages first, because they seemed the most straightforward. I don’t know if @BrandSanderson’s tried it, but he should.

wes_chu Sat Feb 28
@TheDanWells @BrandSanderson I find them difficult bc of their economy issues. I think the Broken Lords are easiest to start with.

TheDanWells Sat Feb 28
@wes_chu @BrandSanderson Their economy is definitely wonky. I’ll give Broken Lords a try.

BrandSanderson Sat Feb 28
@TheDanWells @wes_chu I downloaded it on your suggestion, Wes, and figured I’d just go down the races one at a time.

BrandSanderson Sat Feb 28
@TheDanWells @wes_chu So I’m trying the elf dudes first.
