ScottKing Tue Jul 01
@BrandSanderson If we get Shadows Beneath signed who signs it? Can I request a @MaryRobinette copy or a @howardtayler copy?

MaryRobinette Tue Jul 01
@ScottKing @BrandSanderson @howardtayler I think we’re all signing it at Westercon.

ScottKing Tue Jul 01
@MaryRobinette @BrandSanderson @howardtayler The Limited Edition signed by everyone says sold out. But there is a single signature edition.

MaryRobinette Tue Jul 01
@ScottKing @BrandSanderson @howardtayler Ah… I don’t know the answer to that question.

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 01
@MaryRobinette @ScottKing @howardtayler On the page, we mention the regular edition is signed by me. But we will see what we can do.

GreggRosenblum Tue Jul 01
@BrandSanderson How the hell do you write so much, so fast, so well?

Wizards_MagicEU Fri Jul 25
@BrandSanderson (Dan) Wonderful, I’ll be there! No need to give me a slot in your draft, I can bring a box of CNS for you to play w/ though?

TinTango Thu Jul 24
@BrandSanderson Is that the sequel to Steelheart? I didnt know it was out already!

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 24
@TinTango Not out until just after Christmas, I’m afraid. This is a teaser book of the first few chapters.

William_Pennell Thu Jul 24
@BrandSanderson just started Way of Kings on audio and its great, how long do you think it will take to finish the series?

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 24
@William_Pennell Might take a little while. It’s my main project, but those are big books that take some time do do right.

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 24
@William_Pennell Expect a five-book sequence, followed by a break, then another five-book sequence.

William_Pennell Thu Jul 24
@BrandSanderson Brill, thanks so 5 books by 2019? Do you have a mailing list coz I will forget which books to read during the years?

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 25
Salt Lake City airport has many Sanderson books with bonus Isaac signatures (on the maps). Gate C6 Simply Books!

PeteBaylyUK Fri Jul 25
@BrandSanderson do you just wander into bookshops armed with a pen?

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 25
@PeteBaylyUK Yup. 🙂

PeteBaylyUK Fri Jul 25
@BrandSanderson how often do they try and throw you out for defacing the books before you explain who you are? :p

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 25
@PeteBaylyUK Doesn’t happen very often. Helps that my picture is in many of the books.

JimDeley Fri Jul 25
@BrandSanderson now that I’m caught up on all 5 Ice and Fire books, thought I’d switch to some quick, light reading. pic

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 25
@JimDeley 🙂

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 25
Tight connection in Atlanta means I could only sign at 1 airport store. NYT Bookstore by the E Gate escalators. Steelheart, WoR, and more!

BrandSanderson Sat Jul 26
Hey, Spaniards. I ordered lemonade at a cafe. I got pure lemon juice. Is this a thing, or was I subject to a translation error… 🙂

nccish Sat Jul 26
@BrandSanderson Did you say limonada or gaseosa de limon?

BrandSanderson Sat Jul 26
@nccish limonada.

BrandSanderson Sat Jul 26
@shaynamann1220 Happy birthday!

BrandSanderson Sun Jul 27
At church here in Madrid. It may be in Spanish, but it’s still easier to learn here than when I’m at home wrangling my 3 boys in church. 🙂

anarco_rata Sun Jul 27
Oh damn, @BrandSanderson is in madrid!? Any signings, appearances, go-go dances or whatever planned?

BrandSanderson Sun Jul 27
@anarco_rata My appearances are in Avilés next week. But I stealth-signed some books yesterday at a bookstore and left them there.

anarco_rata Sun Jul 27
@BrandSanderson if I die of heatstroke on my quest to search every bookstore in Madrid I’m so not sending Jordan your regards in geek heaven

MamiPostres Sun Jul 27

@MamiPostres My pleasure!

Toliol Mon Jul 28
La culpa de todo la tiene el Heartstone… Y la siesta de 3 horas… #MATAIME

GinaTost Mon Jul 28
@Toliol encanchada a Steelheart. A saco.

Toliol Mon Jul 28
@GinaTost ?Tu tambien?

GinaTost Mon Jul 28
@Toliol cuando salen los otros dos?

Toliol Mon Jul 28
@GinaTost Jojojojo el 2o en enero… En ingles. Pero Sanderson tiene mas libros. Juraria que te pase el 1o de Infinity Blade, de @NovaCiFi

GinaTost Mon Jul 28
@Toliol @NovaCiFi habra que esperar entonces… Hijo del mal el Sanderson ese. #sandersonsinvacaciones

Toliol Mon Jul 28
@GinaTost SerA! que no tienes libros de @BrandSanderson para leer 😈📚 cc/ @NovaCiFi pic

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
@Toliol donde están estos libros?

Toliol Mon Jul 28
@BrandSanderson We have all your books in Spanish and English and a lot of Magic the Gathering in @GigameshTienda Barcelona 🙂 pic

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
Am on a food tour in Madrid. The guide just told us the next dish is “beef cheek stew.”

arulprakash94 Mon Jul 28
I just won a @BrandSanderson giveaway by @Gollancz ! Yay!!! I’m getting a copy of the Mistborn series! =)

bladenomics Mon Jul 28
@arulprakash94 whats that @BrandSanderson @Gollancz

arulprakash94 Mon Jul 28
@bladenomics @BrandSanderson is one of my favourite authors and @Gollancz is one of the best publishers of his works!

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
@arulprakash94 Nice profile pic! I enjoy his comics.

Toliol Mon Jul 28

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
@GigameshTienda Enjoy!

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
More stealth signed books in Madrid! Casa del Libro on Gran Via. Lots of copies of my books with signatures and stickers inside.

odo Mon Jul 28
@brandsanderson just out of curiosity. Don’t you ever get caught while stealth-signing books?

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
@odo My picture is in the books, so it hasn’t been a big deal the handful of times I’ve been spotted.

Studnougat Mon Jul 28
@BrandSanderson hour 3 of 48 WOR on audible. What’s the word for desire for marathon reading and melancholy because you are closer to end?

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
@Studnougat Don’t know, but I do know that exact feeling. Got it after each WoT book.

RebeccaVentura1 Mon Jul 28
@BrandSanderson while the stealth signing is cool, I’m mostly just jealous you’re in casa del libro right now.

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
@RebeccaVentura1 It was a great store.

PeteBaylyUK Mon Jul 28
@BrandSanderson you’re not planning on a trip through Newcastle are you? 🙂

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
@PeteBaylyUK How about Leeds? August sixth. Details on my website.

Ahmedroid Mon Jul 28
@BrandSanderson Ever coming to the Middle East, maybe Kinokuniya Dubai?

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
@Ahmedroid I will be at the Sharjah World Book Fair in Dubai next spring.:)

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
More signatures in Madrid. El Corte Inglés by Plaza del Callao has signed Sanderson books. Not as many as the last place, but respectable.

CrownsAndLace Mon Jul 28
@BrandSanderson will you be signing any other books at your August 6th @WaterstoneLeeds signing, other then Words of Radiance?

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
@CrownsAndLace My habit is to sign every and any book. Sometimes bookstores spring odd rules on me, though.

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 28
Spain! Here’s my complete schedule for the Celsius 232 convention in Avilés this week. Aquí está mi agenda completa. link

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 29
About to get on the bus to @festivalcelsius! The festival is completely free. Hope to see many of you Spaniards there!

Alatarmg Tue Jul 29
@BrandSanderson By the way, in origin, Spaniard is offensive. Spanish for us citizens from Spain and Hispanic for the others is correct.

ASTURmatr Tue Jul 29
@Alatarmg @BrandSanderson Se suele usar despectivamente, pero en origen es el gentilicio correcto.

Alatarmg Tue Jul 29
@ASTURmatr @BrandSanderson It’s nowadays used by Americans because they changed the correct Hispanic or Latin for Spanish (?70s-80s?).

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 29
@Alatarmg Good to know! Thanks.

Artnerdy Tue Jul 29
I had to… Here’s Kelsier from #mistborn! Hey @BrandSanderson, did I get him right? pic

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 29
@Artnerdy That is really well done. I love it!

pcn86 Tue Jul 29
Gotcha! ^^ @BrandSanderson #AlloyofLaw #Mistborn pic

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 29
@pcn86 Nice! Enjoy the koloss sticker. 🙂
