My Hugo Award-nominated standalone novella Perfect State is now on sale at 99¢ worldwide link pic

timothystarner Tue May 03
@BrandSanderson I have some friends who want to be writers. They are really into the idea of self-publishing, what are your thought on it?

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@timothystarner It’s a solid way to build a career these days, and should not be ignored as a possibility.

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@timothystarner They just need to make sure not to skimp on editing or cover.

Tee_1UP Tue May 03
@BrandSanderson I’ve read and reread Calamity looking for clues but I can’t figure out what mizzys powers are! Why did you not reveal them?

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@Tee_1UP I wanted to be vague because I need to have freedom to tweak them when I write a follow-up.

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@Tee_1UP I have plans, but can’t lock myself in too much until the outline for Mizzy’s book is done.

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
Scott’s cover looks great on the third Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians books! link

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
In case you missed it last week, ATL airport (A, B, E, F Gates) and SLC airport (C gates) have plenty of signed Sanderson books.

AJMO539 Tue May 03
@BrandSanderson why do you go to Atlanta so much?

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@AJMO539 I fly Delta, because SLC is a Delta hub, and ATL is their biggest hub. So I connect through there very, very often.

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@AJMO539 Also, it’s a big center of Wheel of Time fandom, with Jordancon being held there every year.

Nooevve Tue May 03
@BrandSanderson have you ever been to Norway? Love your mistborn-series!

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@Nooevve I’ve been to Oslo once, but it was a few years back. Would love to get back some day!

mikezentz Tue May 03
@BrandSanderson just finished all your works for the second time. You rock bro! I’ve never teared up reading fantasy before.

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@mikezentz Thanks!

pikemarsh Tue May 03
@BrandSanderson I’m flying from Atlanta to SLC next week. Which stores have the books?

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@pikemarsh I hear that the B gate one is sold out. So look at the Simply Books in the A or F gates, or the NYT bookstore in the E gates.

BrandSanderson Tue May 03
@pikemarsh All are in the portion of the gates central to the concourse, with the escalators. Check YA as well as sf/f. 🙂

ayeadruhn Wed May 04
Pls make a 4th book to the Reckoners series. @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Wed May 04
@ayeadruhn I have plans to do something more with the universe.

Brisco428 Wed May 04
@BrandSanderson I had some Stormlight Archives plushies made! The creators are here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CitizenNerd

BrandSanderson Wed May 04
@Brisco428 Those are very cool!

CandyflossGoth Wed May 04
Really excited there’s going to be a 4th @BrandSanderson Mistborn book with Waxillium et al, thought Bands of Mourning was the last one!

BrandSanderson Wed May 04
@CandyflossGoth There will be one more with Wax, Marasi, and company. 🙂

sheMehay Wed May 04
Want to start reading @BrandSanderson, Elantris strongly recommended. My libraries don’t have the eBook… Do I purchase it?

BrandSanderson Wed May 04
@sheMehay A different book of mine, Warbreaker, has a free ebook on my website.

BrandSanderson Wed May 04
Moving up to 52% done on Stormlight 3. I’ve also added some tracks to the playlist I listen to while writing: link

robthadawg916 Wed May 04
@BrandSanderson jus picked up Mistborn so Im not as anxious waiting for stormlight 3. Cant get enough of your phenomenal writing. Thank you!

BrandSanderson Wed May 04
@robthadawg916 My pleasure.

russellmbrown Fri May 06
@BrandSanderson I wanna be frustrated at the seemingly snail pace the number climbs, until I realize 1% is probably *at least* 10 pages.

BrandSanderson Fri May 06
@russellmbrown 4000 words–so closer to twenty manuscript pages. Pace should be around 2.5% a week, once the Stormlight novella is done.

BrandSanderson Fri May 06
Aside from Perfect State, Mitosis is also at 99¢ (in the US for sure) this month. link

shllybkwrm Fri May 06
Sadly, went to Buckkhead books at the #atl airport c gates, but only two @BrandSanderson books & none signed ????

BrandSanderson Fri May 06
@shllybkwrm Yeah, the Buckhead books usually doesn’t have many. The Simply Books locations generally have more. 🙁

SandervanZanten Fri May 06
Finally finished the #WheelofTime series; the conclusion of this 14-book behemoth is every bit as grand as I’d hoped.Thanks @BrandSanderson!

BrandSanderson Fri May 06
@SandervanZanten It was an honor.

BrandSanderson Sun May 08
In church, my 6yr old made this, as normal tic tac toe is “too boring.” (He then put an 0 around it all and ”won.”) pic

jesanidrew Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson I am going out for a role in your Movie series. I am Abraham and best believe, I’m gunning for that role. #ItisWritten

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@jesanidrew Go for it! The rights are with Fox, and hopefully, they’ll get a greenlight before too long.

jesanidrew Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson I had JK Rowling fantasies, I really believe the Reckoners have that capability!!

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@jesanidrew I’m very pleased with the way the producers are taking the film, so I think we’ll be in good shape. Thanks for the kind words!

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
If you like behind-the-scenes, I posted a first (failed) start to a Stormlight novella for Random Hat level patrons: link

RebelliousNavs Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson THERE IS A STORMLIGHT NOVELLA?!?! WHAAAAAT

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@RebelliousNavs In the collection of Cosmere stories coming out in the fall.

ericpeters Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson can I pledge and get the novella? 🙂

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@ericpeters I believe if you pledge now, you will get to read what I posted this month and last month.

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@ericpeters But it’s not a full novella–it’s a scene I’m working on, with commentary on what’s not working about it.

ericpeters Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson Oh snap! pic

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@ericpeters Just for my confirmation, can you see last month’s posts as well?

ericpeters Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson So that’s “technically” April’s post I can see (screenshot) but not other random hats pic

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@ericpeters I’ve only posted two, as we only just started this. If you can read Snapshot and Lift, you’ve got it all so far.

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@ericpeters You’ll have to wait until the novella gets released in the fall to read the whole thing.

5aleesi Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson THANKS FOR THE PACKAGE IT MADE MY WHOLE LIFE !!! ????❤️

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@5aleesi My pleasure! Thanks for your awesome support, Asma.

deva_marie Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson Mr. Sanderson, how do you strike a balance between writing and family? Was it hard to write when you first had children?

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@deva_marie It’s still a challenge, as writing (and most arts) can dominate your entire life, if you let them.

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@deva_marie For me, I had to make strict rules about a period in the day when I’m not allowed to be thinking about writing.

deva_marie Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson I write when I’m not acting and my husband is in the arts too. I believe that you can do both (family and arts)…

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@deva_marie I believe it is possible too.

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@deva_marie Also, I make an effort to include my children, taking them to signings and events. That helps a lot too.

byreneewaring Wed May 11
@BrandSanderson When are they going to make Steelheart into a movie? Is it a personal choice of yours? Just asking.

BrandSanderson Wed May 11
@byreneewaring It’s not really up to me. I sold the rights, and now it’s up to Fox to make a film. I’m optimistic.

BrandSanderson Thu May 12
If you have an Audible credit in your account, you can see that Steelheart is in their 2-for-1 sale this weekend: link

BrandSanderson Tue May 17
For anyone interested, I just hid a signed postcard in a copy of Alcatraz 2 in the American Fork library.

BrandSanderson Thu May 19
On June 11 I’ll be doing #BFest at the Orem B&N. @SabaaTahir at 1:00, me at 4:00, and @TheDanWells at 6:00 link @BNBuzz

BrandSanderson Tue May 24
Nice little display for Alcatraz 3 at the Orem B&N, so I signed them and hid some random swag inside. 🙂 pic

BrandSanderson Fri May 27
Want to go on the Writing Excuses cruise with me & my cohosts? The rates go way up after May 31st, so register now! link

BrandSanderson Fri May 27

BrandSanderson Tue May 31
