Now you can read chapter 2 of Shadows of Self, the Mistborn book that comes out in October. Earlier links at top. link

jonsieg Thu Jul 02
@BrandSanderson any chance you’ll be at @slcomiccon in September? Since basically in your extended backyard? Or other Utah appearances

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 02
@jonsieg @slcomiccon I’m out of town, I’m afraid. I will be doing a signing for the launch of the new Mistborn book early october, though.

Ruth_E_Mann Thu Jul 02
@BrandSanderson My 11yo son is an avid reader & just finished The Rithmatist, said it was the best book he’s ever read. Any advice for next?

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 02
@Ruth_E_Mann Sweet! That’s very cool to hear. My other books are geared older, so it will depend on his interests and reading level.

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 02
@Ruth_E_Mann Honestly, I might give him something like Artemis Fowl next. Those are quite good. If he wants one of mine, maybe mistborn.

shllybkwrm Thu Jul 02
@BrandSanderson I’m about to fly out of Atlanta – any idea which terminal you last signed books in?

shllybkwrm Thu Jul 02
@BrandSanderson Or, if there’s any chance you went through Dallas, Albuquerque, or Charlotte recently?

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 02
@shllybkwrm Afraid not. Atlanta is probably sold out by now too. (Last I left were by the E gates.)

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 02
@shllybkwrm New York Times bookstore. But that was in Feb or March.

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 30
Flying to San Diego Comic-Con next week? Check the Warwick’s in the San Diego Airport for many signed Sanderson books.

kristalshaff Tue Jul 07
@BrandSanderson Do you attend SDCC normally? And is it a good environment for authors?

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 07
@kristalshaff I go maybe every other year. It’s a crowded convention, with lots of noise, so authors can get lost in the shuffle.

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 07
@kristalshaff But I’ve found it’s a good place to connect with fans who wouldn’t normally go to a book signing.

Smalla325 Mon Jul 06
@BrandSanderson just finished reading #wheeloftime series. I feel empty now I need another book #light #dragonreborn pic

Techpig1 Mon Jul 06
@Smalla325 @BrandSanderson how about the tennis ?? You could watch Murray!!

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 06
@Techpig1 @Smalla325 That is a handsome line of books, if I do say so myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

mixmastered Mon Jul 06
@BrandSanderson any plans to release the Infinity Blade stories in physical book form?

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 06
@mixmastered Yes, I need to get on this. I plan to do a nice little hardcover with the game scripts, my stories, and concept art.

stec_lfc Mon Jul 06
@BrandSanderson Hey Brandon, don’t suppose you’ve ever played Final Fantasy 7 have you?

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 06
@stec_lfc I have indeed. Still miffed about Aeris. I had her leveled super high.

Airhawk360 Mon Jul 06
Dang… reading The Way of Kings and, @BrandSanderson the biggest nagging question for me is – when/if Kaladin and Dolinar ever meet up…

BrandSanderson Mon Jul 06
@Airhawk360 That is, indeed, a good question.

MelanieIfield Mon Jul 06
@BrandSanderson Good morning (it is in Australia) Utah! Thanks for Words of Radiance – am enchanted. From the Australian

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 07
@MelanieIfield My pleasure. Thanks for akubras and tim tams. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lobagrisu Mon Jul 06
@BrandSanderson I bought yesterday Words of Radiance (in Spain) the book covers are upside down,wow ๐Ÿ™ pic

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 07
@Lobagrisu Is that for all of them, or was that a misprint? Either way, looks cool. I don’t think I’ve been sent one of those yet.

bradleyzimmer Tue Jul 07
@BrandSanderson Hey Brandon, is there a paperback version of Mitosis? I can only seem to find hardback ones #Reckoners

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 07
@bradleyzimmer There’s not, I’m afraid. The only print edition is the UK hardcover. Some day, I might include it in a Steelheart edition.

n0robin Tue Jul 07
@BrandSanderson Brandon, are there any chances we are going to revisit Vin and Reen’s story? They are such fascinating characters! ‘-‘

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 07
@n0robin Not much of a chance, I’m afraid. I don’t love prequels. But anything is possible.

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
Here is the Calamity cover reveal and a couple preview chapters.

townk Wed Jul 08
@BrandSanderson dear sir, are you planning on a signing tour for Calamity? If yes, is South Bay Area on the map for it?

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
@townk The Calamity tour will be pretty short, but the Stormlight Three tour later in the year should be expansive.

graysfanatomy Wed Jul 08
@BrandSanderson @townk expansive like Australia?

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
@graysfanatomy @townk I’ve agreed to do Supanova again, but I don’t think it’s until 2017. Sorry.

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
@townk I should be there for one of the two at the least, I’d guess.

Jchick113 Wed Jul 08
@BrandSanderson Perfect State is now my favorite of your novellas. Or anyone’s novellas. #ThatPlotTwistThough

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
@Jchick113

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
If you’re in the Provo/Orem area, last night I signed a ton of books at the Orem B&N. They had Mistborn, Twok, & Steelheart in hardcover.

TRGarris Wed Jul 08
@BrandSanderson – If I could get there fast enough! Coming to SLC?

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
@TRGarris Should sign there sometime in the fall.

TheForlornOne Wed Jul 08
@BrandSanderson When in the fall?! Sign my Stormlight Archive books. ๐Ÿ˜‰

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
@TheForlornOne I’m not sure yet. But I do tend to do one around the holidays, if not sooner.

kleinenSchatzi Wed Jul 08
@BrandSanderson please come to Brazil! I bought Mistborn in paper even after reading it on my kindle, now it should have your signature!!

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
@kleinenSchatzi Brazil is on my short list of countries to tour. My books have had a very warm reception there.

spoulin24 Wed Jul 08
@BrandSanderson do you ever venture to Boston area?

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
@spoulin24 I make it about every second year. Check when we post tour schedules.

Jennerbees Wed Jul 08
@BrandSanderson! Think you’ll attempt Boston again this fall for Shadows of Self? I would hope you wouldn’t get snowed out again… ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 08
@Jennerbees It is my goal to get back, but we will see what the tour brings.

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 09
Awesome Etch-A-Sketch Stormlight art from reader Saki: link

BarrettBogue Thu Jul 09
@BrandSanderson Finished WoR book 2. Thank you for crafting such a vivid world with great characters to enjoy.

Shardblade > Lightsaber

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 09
@BarrettBogue My pleasure. Thanks for reading.

PagonaOrb Thu Jul 09
Read the 1st two chapters of your Calamity and I must say I love the way your mind works when weaving a story ๐Ÿ™‚ #MustRead @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 09
@PagonaOrb Thanks!

@BrandSanderson is this the little guy from the WOR dedication?

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 09
@obogert Yes, I believe so.

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 10
Sitting in the Hard Rock hotel at #SDCC. Everyone else is out partying. I’m writing Stormlgiht three. (Which is far more fun.)

MaryRobinette Fri Jul 10
@BrandSanderson Ooo… You’re at SDCC? Now I’m tempted to come over from LA…

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 10
@MaryRobinette Wow. I need to pay more attention to where my friends are traveling.

MaryRobinette Fri Jul 10
@BrandSanderson I’ve been here for 2 weeks, for the Henson workshop.

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 10
@MaryRobinette No, no. You’re at Sesame Street. Everyone knows that’s in New York. Can’t fool me.

QuantumQid Fri Jul 10
@BrandSanderson my gf @RandiMarieArt would love to meet you tomorrow. Will you have any available books to purchase/sign?

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 10
@QuantumQid @RandiMarieArt I’m doing a signing at the Tor booth tomorrow. (Not sure the number.) Often, they have a free book for (more)

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 10
@QuantumQid @RandiMarieArt (pt/2) …for everyone in line, but the line is capped. Ask them for more info. I think it’s 2:00.

QuantumQid Fri Jul 10
@BrandSanderson @RandiMarieArt Awesome. Thank you for responding! You’re her favorite author so hopefully she can meet you tomorrow.

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 10
@QuantumQid @RandiMarieArt Just checked. Books tomorrow are also being sold by Mysterious Galaxy–but they should be there at the Tor booth.

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 10
@QuantumQid @RandiMarieArt If not that, Mysterious Galaxy has my books for sale, and I’ll be doing a signing on Sat in the autograph area.

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 10

Reckoners fans! The Random House Booth(1515) at SDCC has signed Calamity sample chapter books hiding behind the counter if you ask.

BrandSanderson Fri Jul 10
Also at Booth 1515 (Random House Kids) Reckoners punch out figures. They don’t have many, so ask to get one. pic

BrandSanderson Sat Jul 11
Done with Comic-Con events. Thanks, everyone! Now I’m watching @wizards_magic tweet the Magic panel, as I was signing too late to get a seat

ElaineChase Sat Jul 11
@BrandSanderson @wizards_magic we would have saved you one!

BrandSanderson Sat Jul 11
@ElaineChase @wizards_magic That’s so kind of you! I’ll remember next time. I’d feel bad taking the seat from someone who waited, though.

BrandSanderson Sat Jul 11
@ElaineChase @wizards_magic I keep hoping that sometime, I’ll be done with programming soon enough to get in line and pay my dues to go.

xNaryk Sat Jul 11
Shadows of Self von @BrandSanderson kommt im Oktober in Amerika raus … und wann auf Deutsch? ;_;

der_Wert007 Sun Jul 12
@xNaryk @BrandSanderson liest du nicht die original Fassung?

xNaryk Sun Jul 12
@der_Wert007 @BrandSanderson Ich hab aber die deutsche Ausgabe zuhause im Regal. Und die englischen Bücher sehen total anders aus.

der_Wert007 Sun Jul 12
@xNaryk @BrandSanderson es geht ja erstmal ums lesen, sich das ins Regal zu stellen geht ja noch wenn es dann in Deutschland erschienen ist.

BrandSanderson Sun Jul 12
@der_Wert007 @xNaryk Sorry about the delay. The publisher has to wait for translation, which isn’t very fast. ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Sun Jul 12
San Diego Airport has signed Sanderson books at the Warwick’s. Many Towers of Midnight. Some others. Prizes inside!

foxx_ivan Sun Jul 12
@BrandSanderson are you gonna be tomorrow too? Is because I want to go and meet you but I work today! ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Sun Jul 12
@foxx_ivan on my way home I’m afraid.

Mnkywscrewdrvr Tue Jul 14
@BrandSanderson Since Jasnah has been “out and about,” should we be watching for cameos in your other books? #cosmere #wordsofradiance

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 14
@Mnkywscrewdrvr Problem is, no books are currently happening right at the same time as Stormlight. And Jasnah hasn’t gone far afield.

stevenlambson Tue Jul 14
@BrandSanderson do you have. Favorite MTG podcast?

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 14
@stevenlambson Hmm… The Magic Box is good, for cubing, but I get annoyed by how single-minded their vision is. LR is great, & so is D2W.

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 14
@stevenlambson Not sure if I have a favorite, considering it.

stevenlambson Tue Jul 14
@BrandSanderson thanks, wanting to get back into it and looking for a good place to start. Last set I played was Darksteel

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 14
@stevenlambson Hmm… If you like drafting, listen to a Limited Resources podcast on a recent set. Do one of their review podcasts.

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 14
@stevenlambson If drafting isn’t your thing, I’ll be less help–I don’t play other formats as often. But the Magictcg subreddit might help.

Only one chapter left to write in Dalinar’s flashbacks. This one will answer many questions you might have had about his past.

dannpodd Wed Jul 15
@BrandSanderson wife’s name??

@DanGlickman @dannpodd ๐Ÿ™‚

edclipse Wed Jul 15
@BrandSanderson is the next stormlight archive book from Dalinar’s point of view?

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 15
@edclipse He will have the flashback sequences, though all of the main characters will have storylines.

PubsOverClubs Wed Jul 15
@BrandSanderson Were there any surprises for you as you wrote about his past? I know you like to discovery-write your characters

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 15
@PubsOverClubs After writing Dalinar in book one, I had settled most of this. But yes, there were still some surprises.

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 16
That’s a wrap! Dalinar flashbacks are done. 55,000 words/15 chapters. I’m very excited about them. Still a lot to do on the book, though.

JimmyBertrand4 Thu Jul 16
@BrandSanderson What ? I thought the book 3 was focused on Szeth ?! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

BrandSanderson Thu Jul 16
@JimmyBertrand4 I decided this would work better. His will come eventually.

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 22
@luckymartyr1 @KenJennings It is true, though I think Ken was done with school when I moved in to the house. More post-college roommates.

Check out this Stormlight inspired piece that was emailed in awhile ago: link

MLJinAK Mon Jul 27
@BrandSanderson Could’ve nickel & dimed us w/ smaller books of Stormlight, but didn’t! This is a waning, yet appreciated, gift to your fans!

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 28
@MLJinAK My pleasure. I always intend to write each book I do at the length it deserves to be, regardless of economic considerations.

Airhawk360 Tue Jul 28
wait… so the Stormlight archive is going to be a 10 book series?!?!?!?!?!?!?! did… did I hear that right? @BrandSanderson @KatelynGames

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 28
@Airhawk360 @KatelynGames Well, you can imagine it as two five book arcs, if that makes it easier to swallow. ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Tue Jul 28
Working on Stormlight 3 again, after doing some outlining last week. Progress bar should start creeping up again this week.

jonnyrichards0 Wed Jul 29
@BrandSanderson you sir, are an incredibly impressive author! The sheer depth in all of your series is wonderful, keep up the good work!

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 29
@jonnyrichards0 Thank you very much!

BrandSanderson Wed Jul 29
Threw away the chapters I started on Monday and Tuesday. Wish me luck today! Taking a third stab at a first chapter for Stormlight 3.
