BrandSanderson Fri Sep 05
@tooeleblogger I will be at my booth from 4 til 7. ๐Ÿ™‚

tooeleblogger Fri Sep 05
@BrandSanderson Thank you!! We’ll come along then. Can I bring books for autographs, or is that bad form? I don’t know con etiquette…

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 06
@tooeleblogger Please bring all the books you want! I will have books for sale, but am happy to sign already-bought books.

BigGiantCircles Mon Sep 08
@BrandSanderson what sort of voodoo/bribery might I attempt in an effort to obtain an advanced copy of Firefight?

BrandSanderson Mon Sep 08
@BigGiantCircles ๐Ÿ™‚ Drop @PeterAhlstrom an email/message and we’ll get you one once we have them.

BrandSanderson Mon Sep 08
I don’t know anything about League of Legends or the upcoming championship, but I DO know who I’m rooting for: link ๐Ÿ™‚

feelieking Mon Sep 08
@BrandSanderson Have you had a chance yet to try a hand of Bulwark?

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 10
@feelieking Dude, I haven’t. I’m sorry. I can’t remember; did you give me an ecopy?

BrandSanderson Tue Sep 09
My assistant @PeterAhlstrom says you should buy City of Stairs by @robertjbennett, out today. link pic

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 10
Some more cool fan art to show. Thanks, Jason. link

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 10
I need an audiobook! I often let you vote on what I listen to; tonight, I’m just picking Fool’s Assassin. (Sorry. I’m in a @robinhobb mood.)

Jfalcon1387 Wed Sep 10
@BrandSanderson I’m listening to The Hero of Ages, book three of mistborn… but you may have read that one already. ๐Ÿ˜‰

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 10
@Jfalcon1387 ๐Ÿ™‚

JacobWisner1 Wed Sep 10
@BrandSanderson @robinhobb If you end up looking for more, anything narrated by @wilw tends to be good (helps that a lot of it is @scalzi )

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 10
@JacobWisner1 @robinhobb @wilw @scalzi I listened to Redshirts this way, and I agree. The reading was excellent.

BrandSanderson Fri Sep 12
My Sanderson’s First Law essay has been translated into Spanish. link (And here’s the original: link )

Check out this cool Hazekiller cosplay by Aidyn that he wore to FanExpo this year: pic

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
Here’s an advance review (no spoilers!) for Legion: Skin Deep. link You can preorder now. link

tooeleblogger Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson will there be a regular (not leather) HC version like there was of Legion? If so, do you have an ETA?

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@tooeleblogger Yes, there will be. I’m not sure on the ETA, but it shouldn’t be too long.

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
I believe that everyone who updates their Apple device to iOS 8 can download The Way of Kings for free. I hear you only need to open iBooks.

ghostwritingcow Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson Is The Way of Kings a new U2 album?

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@ghostwritingcow ๐Ÿ™‚ I was waiting for them to announce this at the press conference last week. Instead, I got Bono.

ghostwritingcow Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson That’s pretty cool, though!

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@ghostwritingcow Yeah, it is indeed.

MentalMegalodon Wed Sep 17
[email protected] You can also get in for iBooks on the mac too. pic

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@MentalMegalodon Sweet! Thanks for the heads up.

gjn0rse Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson no love for android ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@gjn0rse Afraid this is a promotion Apple offered to us; we didn’t have much say in the matter, other than to say, “Yes.”

JChr_Gerard Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson @bjhomer is it written by Bono?

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@JChr_Gerard @bjhomer Nope, just the Edge.

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
Here’s the link to get The Way of Kings free in iBooks on iOS or on a Mac (with iBooks installed): link

Raithstone Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson It seems to be dependent on location, not got Way of Kings here – for example – but Assassin’s Apprentice (by @robinhobb).

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@Raithstone @robinhobb Well, I’m reading that right now, and it’s awesome. So I’d say you are still in luck.

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@Raithstone @robinhobb Oh, whoops. I’m reading the new one. The first one is great too. (And probably a much better book to offer people.)

ChristianLindke Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson When FIREFIGHT comes out in January, will you be available for any podcast interviews? I really enjoyed STEELHEART.

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@ChristianLindke I like to do interviews like this. We can’t accept all media requests, but if you email us (or the publsiher) we will try.

ArtByWinter Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson other bookss are showing up for me, but not yours.

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@ArtByWinter Yeah, we have a full blog post about this tomorrow. Basically, Apple chose different books based on their region.

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
More details: The free books people get is by region, so The Way of Kings is US only. (In the UK, you get an awesome @robinhobb book instead.)

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
It looks like the promotion is bigger than I thought. Anyone can get the book for free, so long as you have iTunes: link

Brian_C_AU Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson how does that work? Not to be mercenary about it but Brandon still gets paid right?

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@Brian_C_AU I’ve often said that I would prefer to give away early books for free, to let people try my style out and see what they think.

Brian_C_AU Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson on the other hand I work in IT not in publishing or as an author so… its just my uninformed opinion

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@Brian_C_AU You have a good point, but honestly, if it gets people reading I’m okay with it. Maybe people will buy book two if they like it.

suearmitage Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson is it just US or is it available in UK ?? ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@suearmitage Mine is US. UK has other books, including one by Robin Hobb.

joagwa Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson Except in Australia apparently ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@joagwa You can get the free booksโ€”yours just don’t include mine, unfortunately. You should have others for free though!

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
Following a flurry of activity with iBooks stuff today, I’m looking forward to a quiet evening working on the new Mistborn novel.

kocherb Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson Well ain’t that just the best news! Hopefully I don’t have to wait tooooo long for it ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@kocherb Next November. (Sorry.) Firefight is in January to tide you over, though.

AshellaAIE Wed Sep 17
@BrandSanderson don’t know if you saw, but it looks like Amazon had Stormlight loaded on the new Kindle demo units. video

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@AshellaAIE That’s cool. I wasn’t certain if it was something about the review site specifically, or if it was Amazon.

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
Enough people are surprised about the new Mistborn book, so I figure I should post the sample chapters again: link

GhostGranola Thu Sep 18
@BrandSanderson I notice Calamity on the progress bar, is that going to be next after Shadows?

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 18
@GhostGranola Yes, it will be. Stormlight Three after that.

MendyKittner Wed Sep 17
@brandsanderson I thought (hoped) you meant you were working on the next set of Mistborn trilogies… Still, Shadows of Self is good too…

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 17
@MendyKittner Trilogy two doesn’t get to be written until after Stormlight 5, I’m afraid.

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 18
I blogged about The Way of Kings being free (with no DRM) on iTunes/iBookstore in the US: link

torbooks Thu Sep 18
The ebook edition of @BrandSanderson’s THE WAY OF KINGS is free right now on @iBooks! Details here: link

ioschris Thu Sep 18
@torbooks @BrandSanderson @iBooks not free in New Zealand it’s not…

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 18
@ioschris I explain that in the linked article. You get Robin Hobb instead, I believe.

@MrMoffittanium Ha!

angepatootie Thu Sep 18
@BrandSanderson I’M SORRY FROM FLOODING YOU ! I just can’t believe I found your twitter account

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 18
@angepatootie It’s okay. That’s what the account is here for. Thanks for reading!

angepatootie Thu Sep 18
@BrandSanderson I’m itching for firefight

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 18
@angepatootie Thanks! I’m very pleased with it. I’m eager to see copies myself, though we won’t have them for a while yet.

SarahAveryBooks Thu Sep 18
@BrandSanderson After reading Way of Kings, I’ll never look at local coffeehouse @CremCaffe the same way again.

BrandSanderson Fri Sep 19
@SarahAveryBooks @Cremcaffe Lol. Let’s hope that’s not an Alethi version of the word…

Slater130 Thu Sep 18
@BrandSanderson Hey Brandon, I don’t mean to bother you but are I was wondering, will we ever see annotations for WoK?

BrandSanderson Fri Sep 19
@Slater130 I keep meaning to do them, but it has been tough to find the time. I have done a few; might manage the rest eventually.

BrandSanderson Fri Sep 19
The Way of Kings is free on iTunes in the US link and now Kindle too: link pic

@jancipatterson Tell me about it.

stacylwhitman Tue Sep 23
@jancipatterson @BrandSanderson More cheesecake for you if you don’t take it where the kids can see it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

SaysElizabeth Thu Sep 25
@BrandSanderson I looked in the airport I am in right now, just in case, even though you havenโ€™t been in Australia. #wishfulthinking

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 25
@SaysElizabeth Sorry. ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27

disquietus Sat Sep 27
@BrandSanderson So basically I need to find a way to go to the airport for some reason. Good to know ๐Ÿ˜‰

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
@disquietus I signed a few at a Barnes & Noble near the airport too. In Edina at the Galleria.

Baconpotato4 Sat Sep 27
@BrandSanderson When will you come to Amsterdam ๐Ÿ™

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
@Baconpotato4 Was there briefly las month. (The airport at least.) Probably not back for a year at least. ๐Ÿ™

StephenOrr1981 Sat Sep 27
@BrandSanderson Just wanted to say, Words of Radiance is bloody amazing. Nice job.

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
@StephenOrr1981 Thanks!

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
I was in Minneapolis for an interview, & managed to slip to a Barnes & Noble in Edina (the Galleria) & signed books there. Stickers inside!

thelastgoodkiss Sat Sep 27
@BrandSanderson When you sign books at stores, do you do it on the down low, or do you tell the bookseller first?

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
@thelastgoodkiss Depends on how alert the booksellers look… ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
Every time I have a tight connection, I’m reminded I write lots of books. (Atlanta airport E gates New York Times Bookstore. Signed books.)

Rachey_pie Sat Sep 27
@BrandSanderson any plans to visit the uk again soon?

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
@Rachey_pie Not for a while, I’m afraid.

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
Because I’m a glutton for punishment, I stopped at the Simply Books in the center of the A Gates and signed there too. (Atlanta airport.)

cyrilthefish Sat Sep 27
@BrandSanderson Out of interest, what happens if you encounter a store clerk that doesn’t recognise/believe you’re the author? ๐Ÿ˜›

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
@cyrilthefish Helps that my picture is in most of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

BrandSanderson Sat Sep 27
NY Times store (Atlanta E gates) has more Stormlight/WoT books. Simply Books (A gates) has more Steelheart/Rithmatist. All w/goodies inside!

TheVisitant Mon Sep 29
@BrandSanderson a writing retreat sounds awesome. Are they just for students of the 4 of you, or open to everyone?

BrandSanderson Mon Sep 29
@TheVisitant You register for it. Open to everyone but competition to get in can be tight.

EmberDione Mon Sep 29
@BrandSanderson That dude in front is totally like – I look awesome in this. This is awesome. I AM OWNING THE PINK TIARA.

BrandSanderson Mon Sep 29
@EmberDione you should see Dan and Howard with those in their beards.
