Kookie_the_Bard Sun Jan 03
@BrandSanderson any plans to come to Colorado for Calamity or i>The Bands of Mourning… Or both?

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 03
@Kookie_the_Bard Afraid not. I was there in October.

sirgourls Sun Jan 03
@BrandSanderson dunno if you can answer this now, but if everyone is from Yolen way back when, is there a migration story? #cosmere

BrandSanderson Sun Jan 03
@sirgourls Not all humans originated on Yolen, but the first humans were there. Watch the books for myths that hint at more.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 04
The Bands of Mourning comes out Jan 26 in all formats. You can read chapter 4 (spoilers for The Shadows of Self!) here: link

yurisses Mon Jan 04
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom Is there any way I can get the ebook on the 26th in France? Amazon tells me it’ll be on the 28th. 🙁

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 04
@yurisses @PeterAhlstrom The UK (which controls English rights outside of the US) releases new books on Thursdays, instead of Tuesdays.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 04
@yurisses @PeterAhlstrom It has to do with their entire distribution chain. I’m afraid that’s why it’s showing up for you on that date.

TheGreatWilson Mon Jan 04
@BrandSanderson Now that I’m a writer, meeting you at Dragon-Con 2008, in Atlanta, puts things in perspective: Mistborn rewrote my “world”.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 04
@TheGreatWilson Awesome! Keep writing.

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 04
Check out this nifty custom bookshelf that /u/clyguy (on reddit) built to hold my books: link

Mael_sp Mon Jan 04
Dear Mr @BrandSanderson I know the year just begun but is there any chance of seen you in Spain this 2016?thanks for your work a huge fan

BrandSanderson Mon Jan 04
@Mael_sp Small chance, but yes. I’m planning to visit Italy, and then hit a few cities in Europe, in the fall.

TrnkaRobert Tue Jan 05
@BrandSanderson Just curious where the inspiration for the word skaa came from. #mistborn

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 05
@TrnkaRobert Hard to say. It goes back decades. I can’t remember if the music was a thing by the time I was developing them or not.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 05
The Battle of the Tower from The Way of Kings, in gingerbread form. Amazing, timmysaurusrex and sister! link

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 05
My good friend (and Nebula winner) @EricJamesStone has a book release at 7:00 PM at the Orem B&N. It’s a great book! link

n0robin Tue Jan 05
Hey @BrandSanderson, are we ever going to see Funko Pop of any of your characters? ‘-‘

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 05
@n0robin Not sure I’m widely known enough for that. But if they asked, I’d say yes.

FaffyFagus Tue Jan 05
@BrandSanderson what happens to Ishikk in the first interludes of The Way of Kings? Will he ever come back? Does he marry that girl?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 05
@FaffyFagus No answers for you yet. Read on in the series, and perhaps you will find some. 🙂

AF_Library Wed Jan 06
Mistborn by @BrandSanderson was the community’s choice for 2016 One Book, One American Fork! Get a copy from the @AF_Library & start reading

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 06
@AF_Library Wow, really? I had no idea I was even in the running.

SFReviewsnet Wed Jan 06
The “New Ascendancy” broadsheet that came with i>The Bands of Mourning is fun to explore. @torbooks @BrandSanderson pic

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 06
@SFReviewsnet @torbooks We had a whole lot of fun putting those together.

MightythorJRS Wed Jan 06
Came home to this awesomeness! This is some fabulous marketing! Thanks @torbooks @BrandSanderson #bookmail pic

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 06
@MightythorJRS @torbooks Huzzah! I love how the broadsheets turned out.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 06
If you got a B&N gift card for Christmas, Orem store still has a nice stack of signed Sanderson Hardcovers. pic

Plansaresatan Wed Jan 06
@BrandSanderson Do you have to call ahead to just start signing books?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 06
@Plansaresatan I just start signing. These are leftovers from last time, though.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 07
We just added the numbers, and I was on tour or at conventions 105 days last year. That’s…way too much.

BrianTMcClellan Thu Jan 07
@BrandSanderson I could fill in for you a couple weeks. I think I’d make a decent stunt Brandon.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 07
@BrianTMcClellan Heh. You could probably give all my speeches as well as I could.

playfullrachel Fri Jan 08
The only major problem I have with Aether of Night is knowing I won’t be able to sate my need for a sequel @BrandSanderson unless…???

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 08
@playfullrachel Not any time soon. (Sorry.)

Mathieubutt Fri Jan 08
@BrandSanderson ooh could a Kandra pretend to be Returned on Nalthis by using the bones of a recently deceased person?

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 08
@Mathieubutt Heightenings would still recognize them as being alive, as their flesh is alive–even if they’re pasting it over dead bones.

karsyutain Fri Jan 08
@BrandSanderson The only translated book in Korea is The Emperor’s Soul. But I want more! pic

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 08
@karsyutain I would love there to be more. Tell your Korean friends about The Emperor’s Soul. The better it sells, the better our chances.

michaelhguy Fri Jan 08
Got a $25 @amazon gift card for Christmas. Thinking about buying the #Mistborn trilogy by @BrandSanderson on Kindle. Thoughts?

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 08
@michaelhguy Um, well, *I* certainly approve of that choice.

EatonMardi Fri Jan 08
@BrandSanderson My son purchased the leather bound Elantris for xmas but the cover is upside down!! Customer support not very helpful…

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 08
@EatonMardi Whom did you buy it from? From us directly? Either way, I can get you a replacement. Email me at store@brandonsanderson.com

ThatJoshJerez Sat Jan 09
I would love to see @BrandSanderson pen some short stories for @fandsf… *koff koff*

BrandSanderson Sat Jan 09
@ThatJoshJerez I have actually submitted to them before. Always been rejected. It has been a few years now. Doesn’t seem our tastes align.

NetworkIroning Tue Jan 26
@BrandSanderson Any chance of a numbered leatherbound style compendium of all the Reckoners+Mitosis once Calamity releases?

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 26
@NetworkIroning If we did it, it would be years in the future, I’m afraid. So while it’s possible, it will take a while.

NetworkIroning Tue Jan 26
@BrandSanderson thanks, so in a few years to go with the Steelheart movie debut? ????

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 26
@NetworkIroning Fox is progressing nicely with the film rights, but there’s nothing to report yet other than that.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 26
Also, the excellent @kobo books (which are always so easy to work with) have the secret project up for sale as well.

digitalbias Tue Jan 26
@BrandSanderson you can preorder it on amazon too. Release date is 30 Jan.

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 26
@digitalbias The 30th is an error–we’re working on Amazon to get it out earlier.

Rushlimbang Tue Jan 26
@BrandSanderson Amazon must have confused the release day because I bought my nephew a copy of Bom and it isn’t shipping until feb 1

BrandSanderson Tue Jan 26
@Rushlimbang I have news that people at Amazon are looking into the problem, and are trying to fix it.

TadeuAratel Tue Jan 26
Read The Bands of Mourning
and Secret History back to back. Eyes are burning, but that doesn’t wipe away my joy. Thank you @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@TadeuAratel My pleasure.

SazedHeroOfAges Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson Still picking my jaw up from the floor after finishing The Bands of Mourning. SO AMAZING!

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@SazedHeroOfAges 🙂 Nice twitter handle, by the way.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
The newest Mistborn book, The Bands of Mourning (came out yesterday!), is the #1 book on Audible right now. link

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
.@iBooks asked me for some book recommendations. You can see them all here: link

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
The Secret Project should be out on @amazonbooks, yet is still listed as a preorder. If anyone has a contact there, I’d love to talk to them

Un0ri Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson what is this secret project? The book isn’t released here till tomorrow 🙁

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@Un0ri The book’s postscript should mention it. It has small spoilers for The Bands of Mourning. It’s a Mistborn ebook novella.

Ryanlmn Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson Any news on there being an audio version?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@Ryanlmn There will be one in conjunction with the collection of all cosmere short fiction, coming out in the fall.

RepairmanJacked Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson @amazonbooks Is it entitled secret project? Or how do I find it to buy?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@RepairmanJacked @amazonbooks Title is listed in the back of The Bands of Mourning.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@RepairmanJacked @amazonbooks You shouldn’t read it unless you’ve read at least the original Mistborn books. Maybe up to The Bands of Mourning.

Montzerin Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson will this ever be released in physical format?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@Montzerin There will be a collection of Cosmere short fiction in the fall. That will contain it.

Kijof_san Wed Jan 27
Your turn @townk ! link

townk Wed Jan 27
@Kijof_san @BrandSanderson although I work for Amazon I can only help folks on the Fire TV side. I wish I could help you sir!

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@townk @Kijof_san Thanks anyway!

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
I mean, not to brag (much), but I’m currently @amazon’s #5 bestselling author. That should count for something, eh? link

Perenniality314 Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson @amazon Who is Bella Forrest? How is she beating JK Rowling?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@Perenniality314 @amazon She’s a very popular teen vampire romance author.

elektrotal Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson @amazon celebrate by writing some mtg fanfiction =)

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@elektrotal I actually have one that I’ve been kicking around for a while…

SandersonArmy Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson @elektrotal Yes. Yes yes yes. Please. 🙂 -M

DarkDesperado25 Wed Jan 27
@SandersonArmy @BrandSanderson @elektrotal I second this.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@DarkDesperado25 @SandersonArmy @elektrotal It’s about a black-aligned planeswalker loafer who summons demons to be his butler & house staff

BrianTMcClellan Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson @amazon Pfft. Get back to me when you hit #4.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@BrianTMcClellan Shakes fist at James Patterson and J.K. Rowling.

SamSykesSwears Wed Jan 27
@BrianTMcClellan @BrandSanderson @amazon Be careful, Brandon. This is how Van Gogh went berserk.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@SamSykesSwears @BrianTMcClellan @amazon Your ear is in the mail, Sam.

Jackangelinegem Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson Secrect History is due to be delivered January 30th

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@Jackangelinegem The problem is, we wanted it delivered yesterday.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27

Ghostwolf_Fangz Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson can I get a linkage to this newsletter o.o

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@Ghostwolf_Fangz It will go up on my website soon, and we’ll tweet it.

Tru_Breezy Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson Finished! I have no intelligent comment,just a simple thank you for the excellent read. I was in a bit of a book funk. ????

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@Tru_Breezy My pleasure. Thanks for reading!

edasque Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson will there be an Audible book for Mistborn: Secrect History?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@edasque In the fall, when we release a collection of cosmere short fiction, you’ll get an audiobook for them all.

EndiWebb Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson I’ve got a rep over at kdp who helps me with this kind of stuff. I could introduce you to each other by email if you’d like.

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@EndiWebb That couldn’t hurt. I’ve followed you. Could you direct message me your email, and I’ll drop you a line?

FtKulpa Wed Jan 27
@BrandSanderson We could use some extra towels in room 114, if it wouldn’t be too much bother. Oh, what’s that you’re working on?

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@FtKulpa Oh, the flashbacks! Also, “I’ve been locked out of my room.”

sarahmccalip Wed Jan 27
Just got my copy at @murderbooks! Super excited, @BrandSanderson! pic

BrandSanderson Wed Jan 27
@sarahmccalip @murderbooks Sweet! I think I might be back there on the Calamity
tour (not 100% certain). Maybe I can sign it for you then.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
For those in the UK, remember that many @Waterstones stores have signed copies of The Bands of Mourning
on their shelves!

JamesSc67472390 Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson @Waterstones My lunch plans just changed. Let the hunt begin!

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@JamesSc67472390 @Waterstones Several have been tweeting that they have them. I don’t know what % got them, though. So maybe call ahead.

chobindue Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson @Waterstones I’ll probably be in London when Calamity
is due out. Will there be signed copy of that as well?

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@chobindue I…I can’t remember if I signed some of those or not. It was all a blur during the holidays…

Eifeirobin Thu Jan 28
@WstonesLeeds Do you have signed copies of The Bands of Mourning
by @BrandSanderson?

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@Eifeirobin @WstonesLeeds I believe they do have some, if they didn’t already mention it to you!

JosephADevlin Thu Jan 28
Signed The Bands of Mourning
on the way and step 1 of my #mistborn inspired tattoo has healed up nicely @BrandSanderson pic

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@JosephADevlin Wow. Pretty cool!

My novella Mistborn: Secret History has gone live on Kindle: link . Links to other versions here: link

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
The Bands of Mourning
is out today in the UK, Ireland, Australia, new Zealand, South Africa, etc! link

KeeganLaycock Thu Jan 28
@robertjbennett @BrandSanderson so the question is, which do I read first? pic

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@KeeganLaycock @robertjbennett Curiously, I’m reading City of Stairs right now, after my assistants insisted I finally get to it.

KeeganLaycock Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson @robertjbennett Funny you should say that, I got it after your assistant recommended it on your website!

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@KeeganLaycock @robertjbennett Yeah, I’ve been meaning to read it forever. I’m not a few chapters deep and enjoying it.

FtKulpa Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson Wow. After all this time, reading the first chapter of Secrect History was…incredible. Thank you… Just, thank you.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@FtKulpa It’s been a long time in the works, that one. Glad to finally release it.

o_edisa Thu Jan 28
Holy shit, read that last word. Now I need to know more!!! You and your cosmere are crazy wonderful, @BrandSanderson! #bandsofmourning

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@o_edisa 🙂

cobraspideyguy Thu Jan 28
So I bought 3 copies of @BrandSanderson The Bands of Mourning
online. Have received zero. #waiting #mistborn

MentalMegalodon Thu Jan 28
@cobraspideyguy My Amazon copy showed up yesterday, Weller’s copy says Tuesday…

cobraspideyguy Thu Jan 28
@MentalMegalodon my 2 from weller don’t have any status yet. Waiting on book depository for uk copy. None from amazon this time.

MentalMegalodon Thu Jan 28
@cobraspideyguy I really need to catch up on the UK editions. And yeah… Weller’s has been really late for most everyone this time.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@MentalMegalodon @cobraspideyguy The problem was the quick turn-around time on the book. Tor publishing to soon after the others (more)

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@MentalMegalodon @cobraspideyguy …that I didn’t sign them until Sat. I know they shipped them ASAP, but we usually ship them a week early.

MentalMegalodon Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson @cobraspideyguy Maybe if someone hadn’t turned in 2 novels when promising 1… 🙂 (I’m okay waiting a bit for signed ed.)

MentalMegalodon Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson @cobraspideyguy Speaking of signings, do we know when Calamity
tour dates will be announced?

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@MentalMegalodon @cobraspideyguy Should be very soon. We’re booking the last ones now.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@cobraspideyguy 🙁

LyndzCambridge Thu Jan 28
How have I waited until now to read Steelheart
by @BrandSanderson – so good! #justanotherchapter

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@LyndzCambridge 🙂 Sorry for the bad metaphors… (Actually, no, I’m not.)

VickiGooderson Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson wow – #Mistborn Secrect History was amazing as was bands of mourning. Thank you for the read.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@VickiGooderson My pleasure!

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
A quick shout of thanks to Stacy Shabalin, Andrew Eisenman, & Adrian Liang at @amazonbooks. Secrect History is live because of their help!

TheAOster Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson Will Secrect History ever be released in print form, or only ebook? Not an ebook guy, but I’ll take the plunge if I must.

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@TheAOster We’re publishing a collection of all the cosmere short pieces in the fall. If you can wait that long, you can get this in print.

MollyMintonx Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson any plans for releasing any more special leather editions this year? Loved the Elantris one!

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@MollyMintonx We hope to do Mistborn.

MollyMintonx Thu Jan 28
@BrandSanderson awesome! Do you have any idea when it would be out?

BrandSanderson Thu Jan 28
@MollyMintonx The goal is Christmas time.

link

samnoble Fri Jan 29
@BrandSanderson I’m still reeling from the amount of Cosmere material we got in Bands!

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 29
@samnoble The Mistborn books in particular will slowly skew more and more Cosmere-oriented over time.

G_Unit_Pears Fri Jan 29
@BrandSanderson One of my favorite parts are the epigraphs that were in original Mistborn & Stormlight. Will you do that for future books?

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 29
@G_Unit_Pears Stormlight will continue to have them. I haven’t decided for other books.

N_Bhattacharyya Fri Jan 29
@BrandSanderson Would being fat be advantageous for steel pushing? Asking for a friend.

BrandSanderson Fri Jan 29
@N_Bhattacharyya Advantageous in pushing against someone else, trying to knock them over. Disadvantageous when lifting yourself into the air

BrandSanderson Sat Jan 30
#Steelheart is on sale for Kindle for $1.99 for the next two weeks.
