_markholmes Wed Jan 21
@BrandSanderson why did you skip LA and when will you be here next?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 21
@_markholmes Afraid LA gets skipped on occasion because San Diego has such a great sf/f bookstore. Next time I will stop there most likely.

mmusante Thu Jan 22
Finally finished Firefight. Happy to admit that @BrandSanderson has redeemed himself with the simile/metaphor mix-up.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 22
@mmusante Just to defend my English Major cred, they don’t mention in school that all similes are technically a subset of metaphor. πŸ™‚

INukeYou Thu Jan 22
I feel like I haven’t been yelled at by @darci_cole in forever

CurtisKen Thu Jan 22
@INukeYou she’s too busy palling around with @BrandSanderson to yell at you

darci_cole Thu Jan 22
@CurtisKen @INukeYou @BrandSanderson Right. After that two-minute conversation we’re totally tight.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 22
@darci_cole @CurtisKen @INukeYou Totally. I loved that time we went skydiving together.

WTFATTA Thu Jan 22
@BrandSanderson hey Brandon, I’ve read WoT countless times and really enjoyed your part in it. Would you be interested in skyping someday?

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 22
@WTFATTA Afraid all publicity requests have to go through my publisher. Too many for me to track.

TxBookiemonster Thu Jan 22
@BrandSanderson Are you maybe possibly available to do a Book Festival in Mansfield, Texas on Sept. 19th 2015? Would love to have you.

damascus121 Mon Jan 26
@BrandSanderson think you will still be coming to Boston with all the snow forecasted?

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
@damascus121 Depends on flights, I guess.

zacdozier Mon Jan 26
@BrandSanderson Do you think your PHL tour stop will still happen tomorrow or get canceled due to this “historic” blizzard approaching?

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
@zacdozier Depends on flights, I guess. Not sure yet.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
Atlanta airport signed books! Find Firefight at the Simply Books, middle of the A gates. Everything else at E gates New York Times store.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
@andrew_gott Yes, I will.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
Philadelphia: Bad news. Snow has forced the cancellation of my signing on Tuesday. I’ll try to reschedule & will ship them signed bookplates

Thunderclaww Mon Jan 26
@BrandSanderson Do you think you’ll still make it to Boston?

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
@Thunderclaww As of right now, Boston is still on. But it will depend on flights.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
In-person photo of the Firefight menu at the cafe inside the bookstore for tonight’s signing in Lexington. πŸ™‚ pic

xxSteggie Mon Jan 26
@BrandSanderson I was so hoping to get to see you tomorrow! Do you have any idea when your new signing will be, if there will be one?

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
@xxSteggie No idea, I’m afraid. At the latest, I will come back in October for the Misborn novel. Hopefully sooner, but we will see. πŸ™

feelieking Mon Jan 26
@BrandSanderson given that Kelsier had some awareness of events on Scadrial after his death, do you think he approved of Elend as emperor?

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
@feelieking I will release a little more of Kelsier’s feelings on things like this someday.

feelieking Mon Jan 26
@BrandSanderson And were I minded to, could I kill Kaladin with a hemalurgic spike and steal his windrunning? (I don’t want to kill Kaladin)

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 26
@feelieking You can steal most things with Hemalurgy, but Surgebindings are tricky because of the spren. Requires some non-standard workings.

sirgourls Tue Jan 27
@BrandSanderson Question! Were the Alethi made by some creator-figure and given the Thrill deliberately?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@sirgourls Roshar was inhabited before Honor and Cultivation arrived. The Thrill did not exist then.

sirgourls Tue Jan 27
@BrandSanderson so it’s a response to the power of one of or both of them?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@sirgourls I didn’t say that… πŸ™‚

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
Well, my flight to Boston tomorrow just got canceled. We’re looking into flying me to Hartford, then having me driven on to Boston.

Krystal_Leger Tue Jan 27
@BrandSanderson Please be able to make it! I just found out that my ride is actually able to take me and I’ve been looking forward to it.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@Krystal_Leger It is not looking likely, I’m afraid.

Emoff1 Tue Jan 27
@BrandSanderson I teach eighth-grade English and have a school full of Steelheart and Mistborn fans who would love to meet you.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@Emoff1 Drop me an email through my website! I do the occasional school visit on tour.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
Bad news. After listening to replies on my Facebook and Twitter, we’ve decided to just call off the Boston signing tomorrow. (more)

wiresegal Tue Jan 27
@BrandSanderson Nooooooooooooooooo

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@wiresegal Sorry. With my flight canceled, getting in involved two different flights and a two-hour drive through the snow from Hartford. πŸ™

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@wiresegal Just proved to be too much when either of those flights could get canceled or the traffic could just make us unable to arrive.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
However, I may be in the area May/June and will try again then. Either way, we’ll send the Boston store bookplates/codes to give away.

AStirlingMacD Tue Jan 27
@BrandSanderson on a not-unrelated note, Philly airports are all back open…

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@AStirlingMacD Ha. When I come to NYC May/June, we’re going to try to add a Philly stop then. I promise to use these extra days to write. πŸ™‚

amuteforamuse Tue Jan 27
@BrandSanderson Do you have plans to visit the UK any time in 2015? We don’t get much snow and have an endless supply of cups of tea!

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@amuteforamuse None right now, I’m afraidβ€”but then, I didn’t have plans last year, and made it anyway. πŸ™‚

Jennerbees Tue Jan 27
Quite devastated that nature’s shenanigans resulted in @BrandSanderson’s signing being canceled. Snow, I will punch you right in the mouth!!

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@Jennerbees So sorry. πŸ™

aimeedelo Tue Jan 27
And @BrandSanderson isn’t coming tomorrow. I’m sad. Stupid snowstorm.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@aimeedelo πŸ™

melowdee Tue Jan 27
@BrandSanderson do know if you will be going to SD Comic-Con or Wondercon this year?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@melowdee I should be at San Diego.

booksmithtweets Tue Jan 27
Sad news folks, due to the weather @BrandSanderson’s event with us tomorrow is cancelled, stay safe and warm!

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 27
@booksmithtweets So sorry! I will be back before the end of the year for certain.

Cincinnati airport! Signed books (mostly Stormlight) are in the Heritage Books by the B Gates. Prizes inside!

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 28
Argentina! The blog Atrapado en la Lectura is giving away 3 of my books (en español). link

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 28
Proof I fly a tad too much: I walked into the Minneapolis airport bookstore, and the man at the counter said, “Hello Mr. Sanderson.”

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 28
Regardless, all four Minneapolis airport bookstores (F5, C1, Main Mall, C12) have signed Sanderson books. Be sure to check the teen section!

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 30
