MichaelARothman Fri Oct 21
@BrandSanderson so is the charity auction tax deductible?

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
@MichaelARothman Yes, I believe it is. At least, once their paperwork gets approved.

running_jester Fri Oct 21
@BrandSanderson do you play magic online?

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
@running_jester Afraid not, as I like the face-to-face time of playing.

CarlAnderson9 Thu Oct 20
@BrandSanderson How do we go about sending you Magic Cards?

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
@CarlAnderson9 Well, I set up an Amazon wishlist after getting many requests, but honestly people reading my books is all the reward I need.

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
@audrieD It sure is.

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
Swag from Wizards is here! I will bring some to the draft tomorrow to give away. pic

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
So, if you want to play magic w/me or get a book signed (I’ll have a few for sale too) come by Sat, 2:00 @ Epic games. Details on my website

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
Signing the Sam Weller’s pre orders of Alloy of Law. First odd request of the day. pic

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
Saying “Author’s Choice” for the inscription on these can be dangerous… [photo missing for some reason; inscription says “An octopus’ eye has a rectangular pupil.”]

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
Had to call my Jewish editor for help on this one. pic

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
Well, he asked… (Thanks to @17thshard for the suggestion.) pic

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
And…done! pic

johnjosephTX Fri Oct 21
@BrandSanderson i just ordered a special print of tEotW from the UK. If I mail to your editor to have you sign it is that possible?

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 21
@johnjosephTX Just drop me an email through my site. Going to my assistant will be faster than my editor.

johnjosephTX Fri Oct 21
@BrandSanderson Your assistant actually contacted me and informed me that for respect for Mr. Jordan you sign only books you have written.

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 22
@johnjosephTX Ah, I didn’t read that carefully enough. I just assumed it would be one of the ones I worked on. Peter is right.

johnjosephTX Fri Oct 21
@BrandSanderson I wish to respect that; fun as it might be to have this special edition signed by you.

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 22
@johnjosephTX However, if you want something cool, we can probably find a way to get Harriet to sign it for you.

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 22
I’m pleased to say that I’m nearly to my goal this week, and should hit it with work tonight. Moving the #AMOL progress bar to 80%.

AceCarex Fri Oct 21
@BrandSanderson , it might just be my drunken, post bottle of red wine Internet searches talking, but was there talk of a mistborn movie???

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 22
@AceCarex There is talk of a movie. Nothing firm yet, though. I’ll post if there is. We have a script, but no studio yet.

Thobbo Fri Oct 21
@BrandSanderson do you know if a WOT film or tv series is on the cards at all?

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 22
@Thobbo Possible. Universal Pictures has the rights, and I’ve visited and talked with them on several occasions.

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 22
People are asking how many more names I’ll use, as the book is 80% done. I left placeholders in dozens of names earlier that will be filled.

LowmanX Sat Oct 22
@BrandSanderson Are you just dropping names in as is or will they be “Wheel of Time-ified”?

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 22
@LowmanX WoT-ified.

FrancoisPepper Sat Oct 22
@BrandSanderson would u happen to have a handy, simple, collated timeline showing when all of ur books will be released?

BrandSanderson
Sat Oct 22
@FrancoisPepper There are no firm dates except November 8th for Alloy of Law. See sidebar on brandonsanderson.com

BrandSanderson Sat Oct 22
Leaving for Epic Games. Come play Magic or get a book signed. My books (w/rare foreign editions) will be available. link

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 24
This album (Invincible, Two Steps from Hell) is as awesome as promised. Thanks again Steve Karam, for this and for the cards.

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 24
Alex Prescott, you are in #AMoL. link

BrandSanderson Mon Oct 24
Jonathan Burt and Jonathan Brockelman, you two are a pair of Whitecloaks. #AMoL. link

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
There’s a cool Mistborn pumpkin, and if you want signed books you should order now. Plus updates. link

craigtimmis Tue Oct 25
@BrandSanderson when you come on your UK Tour for Alloy, will we be able to get our Towers of midnight books signed too?

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
@craigtimmis Yes indeed.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
Well, I’m starting to feel spoiled. Thanks, Tim Lerch, for the Magic cards sent via the wishlist. And thanks for reading.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
Writing on #AMoL might be a little slower this week. Been coordinating heavily with Alan R. from Team Jordan on Last Battle tactics.

Lvydro Tue Oct 25
@BrandSanderson Did you see GRRM’s latest interview? The quote on magic is the opposite of your view. “For magic to be effective in a literary sense, it has to be unknowable and strange and dangerous”

PeterAhlstrom Tue Oct 25
@Lvydro GRRM doesn’t try to solve problems with magic, so his writing is still in line with Sanderson’s First Law.

Lvydro Tue Oct 25
@PeterAhlstrom Seems like he would disapprove of @BrandSanderson ‘s use. Or at least, consider it ineffective. Not that it matters of course

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
@Lvydro @PeterAhlstrom I wouldn’t disagree with GRRM exactly—what he describes is one effective use of Magic. Just not the only one.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
@Lvydro @PeterAhlstrom If you’ve ever read the Sanderson’s First Law essay, you’ll see what I mean. Rule Based vs Mysterious magic.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
It should be noted that Alan R (Team Jordan member) has been acting as my own personal Great Captain on #AMoL, and really doing a great job.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist is giving away 3 copies of the new Mistborn book, THE ALLOY OF LAW. The hardcover, not the ARC. link

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
Need a name for a sister from the Green Ajah. And…the name chosen was David Emery, who entered the name of his late sister, Filis. #AMoL.

MosesSiregar Tue Oct 25
@BrandSanderson Hi Brandon! I just sent you a Facebook PM re: Joshua and WFC. I’ve enjoyed your comments at Reddit, btw.

BrandSanderson Tue Oct 25
@MosesSiregar I’ll look for it. In the future, you should probably email me instead. I could easily miss something on Facebook.

tron_ram Wed Oct 26
@BrandSanderson been hearing some rumors/wishes on wheel of time movies, true? if so will it be done well?

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
@tron_ram The rights have been sold. But, like anything in Hollywood, it could take a lot of time to get a film made.

tron_ram Wed Oct 26
@BrandSanderson who have they been sold to? and is anyone from team jordan supervising? so it doesnt turn out like eragon did

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
@tron_ram Universal has the rights. They’ve brought me in several times to consult. I’m sure Team Jordan will be involved.

Karea_Rose Wed Oct 26
@BrandSanderson will you be doing any tours/signing in Aus soon?

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
@Karea_Rose Yup. In Australia next April. The events page on my site has info. (Also, naming rights thing is here.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
I need a quick break. Since many asked me if I played, I grabbed Magic Online. Anyone willing to show me the ropes?

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
Mostly, I want someone to play a game against to see if my little netbook can even run the software right. Also, to get used to the UI.

IvyLoLVesh Wed Oct 26
@BrandSanderson you should grab magic workstation instead :). Much more fun when you can play with the deck you -want- to test.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
@IvyLoLVesh Well, the thing is, I want to draft—and I’m really tempted by the “Collect all of a set, get copies mailed to you” thing.

metaknightmare Wed Oct 26
@BrandSanderson If you can wait 5–10 minutes for me to boot it up, I’ll be glad to help out and battle! (screen name is meta_knightmare)

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
@metaknightmare I can wait a few min. I’ll build a deck out of the Planeswalker cards. Username MistbornElantris.

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
Okay, got someone. Thanks, guys! I’ll post again other times when I’m up to play. For now, let me figure out the UI a little.

ohhusson Wed Oct 26
@BrandSanderson I can play in about 20?

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
@ohhusson Someone already grabbed me, I’m afraid. Next time. 🙂

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
You can get the free 6-chapter preview of my new Mistborn book, THE ALLOY OF LAW, on iBooks. link

BrandSanderson Wed Oct 26
Also Kindle: link Nook: link Sony: link Kobo: link Tor: link

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 27
InkWing has a contest giving away their new Alloy of Law T-shirt, plus you can buy the shirt with free shipping. link

gkellauthor Thu Oct 27
@BrandSanderson the progress bars on your website, how did you make those?

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 27
@gkellauthor Afraid my brother made it, so I don’t know the coding.

writertjmk Thu Oct 27
@MaryRobinette @johncleaver @howardtayler @brandsanderson You all made it to #renosf Is World Fantasy not as big of a deal?

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 27
@writertjmk @MaryRobinette @johncleaver @howardtayler It depends. The thing is, World Fantasy is almost always close to tour time for me.

BrandSanderson Thu Oct 27
@writertjmk @MaryRobinette @johncleaver @howardtayler If I’m not on tour, then I’m leaving in a week or so. (Like this year.) Makes it hard.

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 28
Finished UK copies of THE ALLOY OF LAW have arrived. pic

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 28
I find myself thinking “It’s been forever since I wrote Perrin. I’ll be glad to get back to him.” Then I realize his sequence is done. #AMoL

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 28
Note that this isn’t because Perrin isn’t in the book much. (He is.) It’s because I wrote his chapters first. #AMoL

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 28
It is odd, knowing that some characters have had their stories told, that no more will be written about them. You’ll feel this next year.

TDREnc Fri Oct 28
@BrandSanderson How do you go about getting your name (or some variation) into #AMOL? This seems like a very interesting concept.…Apologies. Google has answered my query. So I would like to change my question; Are you still drawing names from donations?

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 28
@TDREnc I am.

BrandSanderson Fri Oct 28
BYU Bookstore will start handing out line numbers for the THE ALLOY OF LAW book release at 7:00 a.m. on Monday the 7th. link
