The Way of Kings is free on iTunes in the US link and now Kindle too: link pic

ShankARaptor Tue Oct 21
@BrandSanderson You have fans outside of USA also! Why is it that you choose to shut them out of all these promotional offers!

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@ShankARaptor Unfortunately, these promotions are run through my US publisher, not me myself. And the US publisher only sells books here.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@ShankARaptor For folks like you, we have to rely on my publishers outside the US to run promotions, which they don’t do quite as often. ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 01

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 06

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
Hour and a half layover in Atlanta. Going to try to hit all of the airport bookstores.

William_Pennell Tue Oct 07
@BrandSanderson can you write in one on page 3 ‘Look on page 144′ and then on 144 write…’Fool!’ thanks

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
@William_Pennell Ha. I will have to do that sometime.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
First stop in Atlanta Airport, Simply Books in the F gates. Signed copies in attached picture. Ask for Michael at the store. He is awesome.

FourOfFiveWits Tue Oct 07
@BrandSanderson What’s the protocol for just walking in and signing books? Do you just ask someone working there? Like, “Hey, I’m this guy?”

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
@FourOfFiveWits If the staff isn’t busy, I grab my books and introduce myself. If they are busy, I just sign.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
Next Atlanta airport stop: NYT bookstore, top of the escalators, E gates. WoT and Steelheart paperbacks!(See picture) pic

BaronAtomy Tue Oct 07
@BrandSanderson Are you guerilla-autographing? And if so, are you changing your signature arbitrarily? ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
@BaronAtomy It has changed over time, but I don’t change it arbitrarily. ๐Ÿ™‚

lamguin Tue Oct 07
@BrandSanderson Are you sure you didn’t sign the Song of Ice and Fire books by “accident”?

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
@lamguin I was tempted…

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
I think I forgot the picture for F gate books. They have Mistborn books, but no WoT on the shelf when I was there. pic

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
Buckhead books (B Gates Atlanta) has the airport’s only copy of Words of Radiance. Also Mistborn, Steelheart in teen. pic

Phoecat13 Tue Oct 07
@BrandSanderson I just allowed myself to look through your stuff, (made myself stay away after severe book withdrawal) #OMGSTORMLIGHTARCHIVE

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
@Phoecat13 Thanks for giving them a try!

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
Last stop, Atlanta airport A gate Simply Books. Only store to have Hero of Ages. Also many others. Look in Simply Good Books and in Teen.

ConceiveITCorp Tue Oct 07
@BrandSanderson You should have signed them. That would have been a great Easter Egg for someone.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
@ConceiveITCorp I sign them all.

whiting_jeff Tue Oct 07
@BrandSanderson I’m a sucker for a signed book even when I’ve already read it. #SLC pic

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
@whiting_jeff ๐Ÿ™‚ Human the Koloss obviously approves.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 07
Denver airport! There is a Tattered Cover bookstore in the middle of the C gates with signed copies of Steelheart inside.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 08
All 3 Mistborn trilogy trade paperbacks are out! Also, here’s my New York Comic Con schedule. link pic

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 09
From yesterday: My #NYCC schedule Saturday, plus new Mistborn trade paperbacks. link pic

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 09
Denver! No signing here (just came for school visits) but I stopped at the Lone Pine B&N & left many signed books! Look in both teen & sf.

kinleigh_f Thu Oct 09
@BrandSanderson do you mean Lone Tree?

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 09
@kinleigh_f Yup! Sorry.

brianmedema Thu Oct 09
@BrandSanderson Was it the Lone *Tree* Barnes and Nobel? If so, totally stopping there after work.

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 09
@brianmedema Yup. Sorry! That is the one.

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 09
@BrandSanderson Yup. Sorry!

tsgraveline Thu Oct 09
@BrandSanderson Do you tell the booksellers when you do this or leave it as a gift for fans to find without a mark-up?

brianmedema Fri Oct 10
@tsgraveline @BrandSanderson I bought two. They were clearly marked as “autographed” by the store.

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 10
@brianmedema @tsgraveline It depends on the store. Those ones had employees who were friendly and not busy, so I introduced myself.

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 09
I had a great time at schools in Denver! As a reminder, I left signed copies of many of my books at the Lone Tree B&N. Next, New York.

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 09
My Reckoners novella Mitosis is now free on Audible for a limited time. link link pic

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 10
Missed it yesterday? The Mitosis audiobook is free on Audible for a limited time. link pic

BFOmega Fri Oct 10
@BrandSanderson Found a few things going through Atlanta. You’re kinda awesome. pic

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 10
@BFOmega Sweet!

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 10
Flying to/from Denver? The Hudson Books outside security (by the TSA pre line) has a single copy of the Rithmatist, now signed.

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 10
Also, Denver Airport, the Tattered Cover bookstore in the middle of the B Gates has many signed Steelheart and one Gathering Storm!

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 10
It looks like Mitosis being free on Audible applies worldwide except for the UK/Aus/NZ etc. Canada/Europe, go get it! link

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 11

@BrandSanderson re-reading A Memory of Light while flying to LA. You really did the series justice.

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 18
@lsv It was an honor. Thanks! Sorry to miss you at GPSLC. Couldn’t break away from comiccon to come down to the place they were having it.

ThaddeusBartman Sat Oct 18
@BrandSanderson what are some of your favorite musicians?

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 18
@ThaddeusBartman I have a lot of them. Daft Punk, Chick Corea, Metallica, George Winston.

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 20
Wow, the Rithmatist was named #3 and Steelheart #8 on the 2014 YALSA Teens Top Ten list. Thanks to all the voters! link

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 20
There’s now a solo ebook for my Cosmere novella Sixth of the Dusk. link pic

AuthorJRVaca Mon Oct 20
@BrandSanderson just stop. Stop.

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 20
@AuthorJRVaca “You only fail if you stop writing.”

KameoY Mon Oct 20
@BrandSanderson Where can I find a sticker of Syl? What can one do to summon one their way? ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 21
@KameoY I mostly stick them in books I sign in airports. But we should be able to slide one into an order made through my store.

JoshSHill Mon Oct 20
@BrandSanderson Can I ask, who do I need to speak to if I’m a reviewer who wants to review ‘Shadows Beneath’ and ‘Sixth of the Dusk’?

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 21
@JoshSHill Talk to @PeterAhlstrom. ๐Ÿ™‚

ArgentSun Tue Oct 21
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom @IzykStewart Can either one of you, pretty please, tell us if Alethi was inspired by the Elian Script?

PeterAhlstrom Tue Oct 21
@ArgentSun @BrandSanderson @IzykStewart It was not. The inspiration for the shapes was an EKG readout.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@PeterAhlstrom @ArgentSun @IzykStewart He might be speaking of the Thalyen script, which looks more like the Elian script than Alethi does.

ArgentSun Wed Oct 22
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom @IzykStewart Right. I was thinking Alethi glyphpairs, which seem to share some ideas with Thaylen letters.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@ArgentSun @PeterAhlstrom @IzykStewart The glyphpairs are more Chinese influenced. But Isaac will have to answer on Thaylen.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 21
There’s a new Allomancer Jak story in the Mistborn Adventure Game Alloy of Law supplement. +Annotations by Handerwym. link

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 21
The Mistborn Adventure Game Alloy of Law supplement is out, and Tor.com has a giveaway. link pic

pictonium Tue Oct 21
@BrandSanderson 77 pages into #Steelheart. Bought it on a whim as im a huge comicbook fan. And lemme tell you, this story is spectacular!

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 21
@pictonium Thanks!

pictonium Tue Oct 21
@BrandSanderson i would love to know your inspiration for this. It feels really fresh but familiar

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 21
@pictonium Lots of things. Cyberpunk for the feel of the city and the underground rebels, late ’80s early ’90s graphic novels for tone.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
Salt Lake airport! Signed books at the Weller Books just past terminal 1 security. Steelheart lenticulars inside. pic

IsaCantos Wed Oct 22
@BrandSanderson I just finished the first book of Mistborn and, with all due respect Mr. Writer, How could you? :'(

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@IsaCantos He made me do it.

SupaTrey Wed Oct 22
just finished reading @BrandSanderson’s Mistborn. So. Good. Can’t wait to get into Book 2!

SupaTrey Wed Oct 22
@BrandSanderson ALTHOUGH, I don’t really need to read the word “maladroitly” again any time soon.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@SupaTrey Maladroitly.

SupaTrey Wed Oct 22
@BrandSanderson Like this: link

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@SupaTrey Watch for inchoate too. I was really fond of that one during my early days.

Trashleigh96 Wed Oct 22
If @BrandSanderson signed the books at Cardiff Airport (Wales) I’d book a flight just to get them

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@Trashleigh96 I will see what I can do. Train station is more likely out there though. ๐Ÿ™‚

FrancoSantos3 Wed Oct 22
@BrandSanderson You are incredible. Thank you for giving me a lot of hours of good stories. Best wishes from Argentina, Brandon. ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@FrancoSantos3 My pleasure! Thanks for reading.

SquillWill Wed Oct 22
@PeterAhlstrom @BrandSanderson Would you mind answering these? What defines a high Epic? How does Tia’s tier system work?

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
@SquillWill A high epic is one where you have to negate their powers somehow to kill them.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22
In honor of the Sixth of the Dusk ebook release, here is my new Twitter header image. link pic

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 22

zztke540 Thu Oct 23
@BrandSanderson what are you doing in Chicago? Any meet and greets?

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 23
@zztke540 Afraid not. School visits this time. Should be back for a real signing in January.

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 23
Signed books at Barbara’s Books in Burr Ridge Shopping Center with prizes inside! pic

sbhelgesen Sat Oct 25
I’ve been checking airport bookstores for signed @BrandSanderson books every #TravelDay… and today at ORD…!!! pic

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 25
@sbhelgesen Nice!

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 25
I love Chicago O’Hare’s Barbara’s bookstores, so instead of eating lunch, I ran to each one and signed. Gates E3, B10, G1, & between H/K.

frickhwa Sat Oct 25
@BrandSanderson I keep wondering, when you and @PatrickRothfuss do this, do you talk to whoever is working or just go in and start doing it?

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 25
@frickhwa @PatrickRothfuss It depends on how busy the staff looks. I usually do introduce myself, particularly at stores I visit often.

Bearded_Arc Sat Oct 25
Look what I found at the Chicago airport. @BrandSanderson pic

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 25
@Bearded_Arc Sweet. Thanks for reading!

Jasp072010 Sat Oct 25
@BrandSanderson Good luck with your current tour Would you help a young author with a RT? link

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 25
@Jasp072010 I am sympathetic to your need for publicity, but I make it a policy not to recommend books I haven’t read.

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 25
@Jasp072010 I will try to give it a look. Either way, good luck!

jrusselldicks Mon Oct 27
@BrandSanderson How would a commoner go about obtaining ARCs of your novels without resorting to eBay and the like?

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 27
@jrusselldicks As long as you aren’t buying them ahead of release (as to not encourage such sales) I honestly don’t mind if you go to ebay.

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 27
@jrusselldicks But some booksellers can get them for you, particularly independents.

schlockfan Mon Oct 27
@BrandSanderson will you be at world fantasy con? Affects who I cosplay as. Uh, I mean, asking for a friend.

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 27
@schlockfan afraid not this year. ๐Ÿ™

jnikkir Mon Oct 27
@BrandSanderson So… you based Obliteration’s look on another author, yes? Anyone figure it out? Might be a ~long shot~ but I have a guess XD

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 29

ilovemydanish Wed Oct 29
@BrandSanderson any shot I could ask (and get answered) a couple questions about religion in fantasy literature for a term paper?

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 30
@ilovemydanish Feel free to drop me an email. No promises, though.
