Phoenix! Tonight I’m at the Poisoned Pen with a ton of authors. And this weekend is Phoenix Comicon. See you there! link

Gwanna105th Wed Jun 01
@BrandSanderson I just legged the last 150 pages of TWoK this morning and I’m utterly speechless. Most satisfying ending ever.

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 01
@Gwanna105th

macy_chris Wed Jun 01
@BrandSanderson Excited to see you at Phx ComiCon. At least, I hope to see you, I know you’re busy

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 01
@macy_chris I am doing plenty of signings, so hopefully it works out!

Hobbesworth Wed Jun 01
@BrandSanderson Finished Warbreaker at 5:30 am last night. When my wife asks what I was thinking I plan to blame you. ????

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 01
@Hobbesworth A good plan.

EirikHavre Wed Jun 01
@BrandSanderson Just listened to both books in the Legion series. Holy cow I love them! Great work!

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 01
@EirikHavre Thanks!

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 01
I am on my way to Phoenix! (Signing tonight, comic con this weekend.) Left signed books in the SLC airport Bookstore! (Gate C6)

damienphoenix Wed Jun 01
@BrandSanderson time frame for the next stormlight archive?

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 01
@damienphoenix One year or so. Half done with the writing part, but editing on these is a beast.

grace_teraberry Wed Jun 01
@BrandSanderson I’m really looking forward to seeing you at comicon! maybe get some stuff signed? ????????

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 01
@grace_teraberry I have several signings, so there should be a chance. ๐Ÿ™‚

AndrewH_Lumin Thu Jun 02
I’m amused that book 3 of “The Reckoners” trilogy by @BrandSanderson takes place in Atlanta and has scenes in the Westin. #ATL #Atlanta

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 02
@AndrewH_Lumin Had to make it not *quite* the Westin as I didn’t know the back rooms well enough. But it is basically there. ๐Ÿ™‚

Skoba21 Thu Jun 02
@BrandSanderson What is the latest news about the Mistborn video game? There hasn’t been any news on it for a long time.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 02
@Skoba21 Not much to report. Might still happen, but going slowly.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 02
First Phoenix comic con signing: 4:00, booth 1378. Dan will be here too. Exclusive item this con: Elantris map trio! pic

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 03

BrandSanderson Mon Jun 06
I added a video to a @YouTube playlist link Shardplate Final Composite

BrandSanderson Mon Jun 06
Very cool. @David_Fonti rendered himself in Shardplate in this video: link

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 07
Today’s the last day to pick up the Elantris ebook for $2.99 (in the US). Plus updates: link pic

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 07
The Rithmatist ebook is now on sale at $1.99 (at least in the US). link pic

Dizturb3dwun Fri Jun 10
@BrandSanderson Thank you for writing the Reckoners and Stormlight ๐Ÿ˜€ SO GOOD

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 10
@Dizturb3dwun My pleasure.

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 10
Utah folks! I’ll be at the @BN_Orem on Saturday for the inaugural B-Fest. #BFestBuzz link pic

whalladay Fri Jun 10
@BrandSanderson my son and I are absolutely enthralled w the Stormlight Archives! He is 13 at its given us sm good bonding. Thx!

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 10
@whalladay My pleasure! Give my best to your son.

AdamuEJ Fri Jun 10
@BrandSanderson with your magic systems, do you plan it ahead or do you develop it with your first drafts?

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 10
@AdamuEJ A little of both. In some cases, it’s more front loaded, but there is always tweaking during the drafting process.

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 10
Just told my assistant to move the Stormlight 3 percentage bar up 2 points, reflecting work I did this week. Have a nice weekend everyone!

rip327 Fri Jun 10
@BrandSanderson What is timeline for shipping Stormlight novella? Saw 1st draft at 100%.

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 10
@rip327 It’s intended for the Cosmere short fiction collection coming out this fall.

K33pOnRollin Fri Jun 10

AmmarJava Fri Jun 10
@BrandSanderson when can we expect it at the local bookstore?? ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 10
@AmmarJava I have to finish it first, then put it through probably about a year of revisions and continuity edits. So next year sometime.

Tweet Not Found

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 10
@cvdks Finished. Needs revisions.

Mark0fNothing Fri Jun 10
@BrandSanderson You should come to see Italy it’s a beautiful country… in this way i could get an autograph…

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 10
@Mark0fNothing I’m going to the Lucca festival this fall.

MrVicBam Mon Jun 13
The Way of Kings by @BrandSanderson is an amazing book… if you into scifi/fantasy then a must

BrandSanderson Mon Jun 13
@MrVicBam Thanks so much!

BrandSanderson Mon Jun 13
Writing Excuses patrons, check the Patreon. We just posted an excerpt from the Lift novella I wrote last month: link

melowdee Mon Jun 13
@BrandSanderson any word if you will be attending San Diego Comic Con this year?

BrandSanderson Mon Jun 13
@melowdee Afraid I won’t be. I have a different commitment. (Celebrating my tenth wedding anniversary shortly before.)

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 14
Want a signed and numbered copy of The Bands of Mourning? @WellerBookWorks has a few copies left, shipping worldwide link

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 14
In this week’s @WritingExcuses episode, we talk about raising the stakes for your characters—what “stakes” means. link

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 14
Utah parade of homes, if this is your pool, is signed some of the books (mine, of course) I found inside. pic

jet_set Tue Jun 14
@BrandSanderson that’s my friend Jared’s house! Hahaha! May I alert him?

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@jet_set I only just saw that you all had replied. ๐Ÿ™‚ I shot a reply to him.

jaredturner Tue Jun 14
@BrandSanderson that’s my pool! How’d you like our new home? Thanks for the signing.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@jaredturner Hi! Sorry for the late reply. Got busy with doing some writing. The home was awesome. I particularly liked seeing my books. ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@jaredturner I had trouble finding copies that weren’t already sighed, though! So we might have met already.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@jaredturner P.S. my kids envy the trampoline and the foam pit. ๐Ÿ™‚

emmarie212002 Tue Jun 14
@BrandSanderson How do you inspire yourself to keep writing, even when you have a major case of procrastination going on?

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@emmarie212002 Sorry for the late reply. It boils down to figuring out your personal psychology, and what motivates you.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@emmarie212002 I believe productivity has more to do with knowing yourself than anything else.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@emmarie212002 For me, it’s about good habits, small measurable goals, and small rewards given in a timely way.

oraymw Wed Jun 15
@BrandSanderson Is Steris intended to be on the autistic spectrum? She reminds me of my brother.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@oraymw Sorry for the late reply, but yes. She is.

Kirstie_Earlene Wed Jun 15
@BrandSanderson I discovered your BYU lectures on Youtube. Thank you so much!! Those lectures are really helping me fix my momentum & plot!

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 15
@Kirstie_Earlene glad to hear it! I have recorded the ones from this year, and should be posting them starting next week.

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 15
It’s the first day, and already the Mistborn: House War board game kickstarter is working on stretch goals. link

Jeffcaddell Wed Jun 15
@BrandSanderson after having the first book of the #mistborn series on my desk for a few months, I am finally starting the journey today!

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@Jeffcaddell Enjoy!

Mark_UNC Wed Jun 15
@BrandSanderson hey mate. Is there a definitive list of all stories that occur in the cosmere available anywhere? Dont want to miss anything

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@Mark_UNC The short story collection Arcanum Unbounded out this fall will include every scrap of short fiction published so far.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@Mark_UNC Other than that: Mistborn, Stormlight, Warbreaker, Elantris, and White Sand (graphic novel, coming out later this month.)

OneOfManyCodys Thu Jun 16
@BrandSanderson As an atheist who’s best friend is a Mormon, Jasnah has been an enjoyable fuckin’ read. Thanks, man! Enjoy drunken fan mail!

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
@YoungbergCody ๐Ÿ™‚ Much appreciated.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 16
Mistborn: House War board game Kickstarter day #2 update: It’s funded and they’re working on the third stretch goal. link

SmashG0D Fri Jun 17
Forgot how sad it can be to finish an amazing series… Thanks for the Mistborn trilogy, @BrandSanderson.

SmashG0D Fri Jun 17
@BrandSanderson and now that i’m less afraid to google stuff about your books, i find they’re all in the same universe??!!

SmashG0D Fri Jun 17
@BrandSanderson writing multiple sets of fantasy novels taking place in the same universe with related cosmologies… that’s my dream

SmashG0D Fri Jun 17
@BrandSanderson so thank you for showing your fans it’s possible

BrandSanderson Sat Jun 18
@SmashG0D My pleasure.

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 17
Mistborn: House War board game Kickstarter day #3 update: They’re already working on the fifth stretch goal. link

ensign_ricky_ Fri Jun 17
@BrandSanderson what ever happened to the PS4 game?

BrandSanderson Sat Jun 18
@ensign_ricky_ Basically dead, unfortunately. It might rise from the ashes, but right now, I can’t promise anything.

vilecreature666 Fri Jun 17
Hey @BrandSanderson our new record is called “a pessimistic doomsayer”& is about mistborn’s large impact on our lives. HOPE THATS COOL XOXO

BrandSanderson Sat Jun 18
@vilecreature666 Totally cool with me. What an honor! Thanks.

toadmill73 Fri Jun 17
@BrandSanderson sorry if this sounds dumb but I can’t get my cat to stop licking my paperback copy of Words of Radience

BrandSanderson Sat Jun 18
@toadmill73 Tasty, tasty books.

iamportelance Fri Jun 17
@BrandSanderson re-reading Way of Kings. Thanks for the epic ride! Can you share something about my fav Renarin?

BrandSanderson Sat Jun 18
@iamportelance In the original draft of The Way of Kings from 2002, Renarin created the Diagram.

Omar_Haroon Fri Jun 17
@BrandSanderson Hi Brandon. If I may ask about AMoL: What became of Silviana after the last battle? Have always wondered of her fate.

BrandSanderson Sat Jun 18
@Omar_Haroon I don’t believe RJ said in his notes. At this point, I’m not in a place to make cannon, so…you will have to imagine it.

R_E_DRichardson Fri Jun 17
It’s like @BrandSanderson & @TheDanWells had the same writing prompt: “Write about a guy who nerd-obsesses about something he also hates.”

BrandSanderson Sat Jun 18
@R_E_DRichardson @TheDanWells That’s an interesting parallel. I’d never considered that.

TysonMoll Fri Jun 17

MaxiCilauro Tue Jun 21
@BrandSanderson is there an illustration of the Pathism symbol?

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 21
@MaxiCilauro Not yet. We should include one of those in a book. I’ll see what I can do.

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 21
The deleted scene for my Hugo-nominated novella Perfect State is up! Annotations to follow this week. link

Un0ri Tue Jun 21
@BrandSanderson are there going to be further stories in this realm? Really enjoyed it.

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 21
@Un0ri I can’t promise, but it is on my list of things I’d like to do someday.

joshuarhall Tue Jun 21
@BrandSanderson Reading WoR right now. Did Korean inspire the combination of glyphs to create writing for men like in Amaram’s study?

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 21
@joshuarhall Yes, a little. Korean was a bigger inspiration for Aonic (in Elantris) though.

MrVicBam Tue Jun 21
Listening to the audiobook of Words of Radiance by @BrandSanderson and the movie thats playing in my head would look amazing in IMAX

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 21
@MrVicBam Man, what I wouldn’t give to see that happen… ๐Ÿ™‚

Destrus76 Tue Jun 21
@BrandSanderson will you be offering signed copies of the Cosmere anthology through the website?

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 21
@Destrus76 Yes, we should be doing so (in conjunction with a local bookseller.)

NouraNoman Tue Jun 21
@BrandSanderson Maps of Arab countries using Calligraphy. link

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 21
@NouraNoman Wow! That’s awesome. (I enjoyed your book, by the way, Noura. Thanks for sharing it with me.)

NouraNoman Tue Jun 21
@BrandSanderson Oh my gosh. You read Ajwan? Wow! Thank you so much, Brandon. Really appreciate you telling me.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 23
@NouraNoman Sorry for the late reply. Yes, I read it! Started on the plane flight home, and finished a few weeks later. ๐Ÿ™‚

saulmarq Wed Jun 22
@BrandSanderson Thank you for this class!! I took it this year and I just finished the novel I started back in January. The writing…

saulmarq Wed Jun 22
@BrandSanderson groups were so helpful and your lectures encouraged me to keep going. I wrote a 123,645 novel in 6 months–my fastest ever!

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 22
@saulmarq Congrats, and great job!

itslaurarose Wed Jun 22
I just binge listened to The Rithmatist in 2 days only to realize its a series noooo #omg #fail @BrandSanderson you’re killing me

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 22
@itslaurarose Sorry. Rithmatist 2 was delayed by me doing the Wheel of Time, and I’ve never quite gotten back on track for it.

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 22
@itslaurarose Some day soon, I hope to be able to write it. The outline is done, and is solid.

TribalInstincts Wed Jun 22
Need book suggestions! Love all things @BrandSanderson and @PatrickRothfuss. Just finished The Passage(book3) by Justin Cronin. Solid 7/10

AllocDK Thu Jun 23
@TribalInstincts @BrandSanderson @PatrickRothfuss Hyperion is a great book ๐Ÿ™‚ Or Ready player one

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 23
@AllocDK @TribalInstincts I second Hyperion, though it’s VERY different from my books. Far more literary; mind bending in a good way.

MMOGC Thu Jun 23
*Makes excited high-pitched squeaking noises* It’s book 4 + long-awaited 5 of @BrandSanderson’s Alcatraz! #bookmail pic

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@MMOGC Congrats. There are secrets we didn’t print in the ARC of Book Five, FYI. (To keep them extra secret.)

AdamuEJ Thu Jun 23
@BrandSanderson How did you come up with the cool names in Mistborn? Did they just come to you or did you twist already existing names?

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@AdamuEJ A mixture of both. The thieving crew names came from getting into Kelsier’s head, and letting him name people.

MylaMalinalda Thu Jun 23
@BrandSanderson I know it’s still really early, but do you think you’ll be at NYCC this year? ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@MylaMalinalda Unlikely, I’m afraid.

BrandSanderson Thu Jun 23
The first annotation for my deleted scene from Perfect State (spoilers!) is now up. link

RoyHartford Thu Jun 23
@BrandSanderson Good to see annotations again! Would love to see Stormlight ones, though I imagine the time sink would be a bit too much!

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@RoyHartford I tried doing them for TWOK, and yes, they were just draining too much writing time. ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@Shaitaan_Slayer My pleasure.

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
The second annotation for Perfect State (spoilers!) is now posted, about the consequences of cutting the epilogue. link

w0lfwood Fri Jun 24
@BrandSanderson I felt very let down by sophie’s death. deleted scene seems needed even though I understand reasons for cutting

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@w0lfwood Yeah, I still go back and forth on this one.

JoshSHill Fri Jun 24
@BrandSanderson I’m a reviewer, and wondering who is the best person – you, agent, publisher – to talk to for review copy of Perfect State?

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@JoshSHill My assistant @PeterAhlstrom would give this one out, as it’s self-published. Though he’s going on vacation next week.

JoshSHill Fri Jun 24
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom What do you recommend, or shall I just wait (which is perfectly acceptable)?

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@JoshSHill @PeterAhlstrom If Peter doesn’t contact you, then wait a week until he’s back, and try again. I’m happy to have him send one.

Klynne0326 Fri Jun 24
I feel like I could be a member of the Evil Liberians. @BrandSanderson pic

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@Klynne0326 Yup, you’d fit right in.

tqy_tqg_tql Fri Jun 24
@BrandSanderson why does Marasi’s memory of the voice of “Death” or Marsh, change? From The Alloy of Law to The Bands of Mourning chapter 15?

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@tqy_tqg_tql This is a thing that drives Peter crazy. My research tells me that people change memories based on expectations and environment

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@tqy_tqg_tql On occasion, you’ll see me having characters miss-quote themselves, or remember events clearly wrong. I do this for realism.

BrandSanderson Fri Jun 24
@tqy_tqg_tql (Though on occasion, it’s just a mistake or lapse on my part. Those we fix. The rest drive my editors crazy.)

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
@haventheft Yay!

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
White Sand the graphic novel is out! I believe B&Ns are carrying it. I’ve heard that many comic shops don’t get new books until Wed, though.

bgbond Tue Jun 28
@BrandSanderson What about digital?

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
@bgbond It should be on digital platforms. I know people have been grabbing it on Kindle.

kthulhu89 Tue Jun 28
@BrandSanderson Mine B&N’s got it! Am I correct in thinking this is part of the Cosmere?

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
@kthulhu89 It is!

konet_prime Tue Jun 28
@BrandSanderson how long do you expect between parts?

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
@konet_prime A year, hopefully.

krizazy Tue Jun 28
@BrandSanderson Hold on – White Sand? Are there pictures of tiny charioteers?

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
@krizazy ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the second version, which I wrote four years later, that thankfully wasn’t quite so bad as the first version.

amooresiue13 Tue Jun 28
@BrandSanderson same story that’ll be in Arcanum Unbounded?

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
@amooresiue13 This is the graphic novel. An excerpt will be in the collection.

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
@SOM1better Yes they will be numbered.

KFord_85 Tue Jun 28
@BrandSanderson what about the busy line? Is it possible to get it going online somehow?

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
@KFord_85 Afraid not. But I will be here for two hours, so you can wait until it dies down and call. ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Tue Jun 28
@mattwalsh12 I will be here a few hours so don’t worry. Should die down in a sec.

BrandSanderson Wed Jun 29
Off to my signing at Dragon’s Keep Orem! Time on my website was 7, but that was wrong. (I will stay late just in case. Real time is 5.)
