@BrandSanderson @jk_rowling care to chime in? Anyone else #nerdy out there in #nerdland? #readers of #fantasy unite !

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 02
@M_to_the_Bush @jk_rowling Well it is obvious what I would vote for… πŸ™‚

mcahogarth Tue Sep 01
Hey, @Tuftears, didn’t you recommend The Emperor’s Soul to me?

Tuftears Tue Sep 01
@mcahogarth Yes? By @BrandSanderson

mcahogarth Tue Sep 01
@Tuftears @BrandSanderson I found fan art of it! By @mathiaarkoniel! Go look, it is spiffy! πŸ˜€ link

BrandSanderson Tue Sep 01
@mcahogarth @Tuftears @mathiaarkoniel I hadn’t seen that. It is awesome.

AizelleRaine Tue Sep 01
@BrandSanderson Thanks for creating Shallan! I’m excited to draw many @DragonCon goers’ likenesses this year. πŸ™‚ pic

BrandSanderson Wed Sep 02
@AizelleRaine Looks great! Hope I can see it in person some time.

DonnovanKidwell Thu Sep 03
@BrandSanderson is it possible to be a full Feruchemist and a Misting or vice versa, like a lopsided Twinborn?

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 03
@DonnovanKidwell Possible, yes. Highly unlikely, but possible.

DamarisCSouza Thu Sep 03
My first @BrandSanderson book. Needless to say I’m very excited pic

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 03
@DamarisCSouza Enjoy!

G_Whitney_Leigh Thu Sep 03
So @BrandSanderson, who’s yet to write a book I didn’t like, apparently has three books coming out. Dude writes books over lunch.

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 03
@G_Whitney_Leigh Sometimes, I get a little too excited by the books I want to write, and stop doing other things to get them done…

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 03
Actual response to my editor’s query while working on the Bands of Mourning revision: “¯\_(ツ)_/¯ That’s how Wax rolls.”

Authorne_JD Thu Sep 03
@BrandSanderson Now I love the #stormlightarchive as much as the next person, but I see a hole that just gets under my skin no matter what!

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 03
@Authorne_JD ?

Authorne_JD Thu Sep 03
@BrandSanderson SKYEELS!
They would have been discovered first and called Eels. It’s always bugged me, unless you can offer a reason that is

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 03
@Authorne_JD Reference Hoid asking in one of the books why they don’t just call axehounds “hounds” or if they even know what a “hound” is…

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 03
@Authorne_JD The hound question is what you should be asking. Roshar has regular water eels, so skyeel isn’t nearly as odd as axehound.

Authorne_JD Thu Sep 03
@BrandSanderson ahhh but that’s my point exactly. shouldn’t it be eels and water eels? Not skyeels and eels. Watereels discovered second.

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 03
@Authorne_JD The answers are there in the books. They will be made clear soon, but I suspect many have guessed already.

darci_cole Thu Sep 03
@BrandSanderson I MAY NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THIS SANDERSON I SWEAR @PeterAhlstrom

MentalMegalodon Thu Sep 03
@darci_cole @BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom Okay, spill. Which is this? (DM if spoilers. πŸ˜› )

darci_cole Thu Sep 03
@MentalMegalodon @BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom Nope. I’m not saying a word. This is terrible.

MentalMegalodon Thu Sep 03
@darci_cole @BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom … πŸ˜› Tease.

darci_cole Thu Sep 03
@MentalMegalodon @BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom All I came here to do was yell at Brandon.

GorgonReviews Thu Sep 03
Anyone know anything about when the graphic novel, White Sand, is supposed to be released this year? @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 03
@GorgonReviews @PeterAhlstrom Might have a better idea on that one.

baalzamon67 Fri Sep 04
@BrandSanderson will you write another WoT book?

BrandSanderson Fri Sep 04
@baalzamon67 I’m afraid not. I don’t think Robert Jordan would want more to be written.

Jchick113 Fri Sep 04
@BrandSanderson my cousin @Jamen45 refuses to continue Mistborn because you killed Kelsier. Talk some sense into him?

Jamen45 Fri Sep 04
@Jchick113 @BrandSanderson I’ve read into half of the second book but alas the pain was too great…

BrandSanderson Fri Sep 04
@Jamen45 @Jchick113 He has a brief role in Book 3…

boothy52 Sat Sep 05
@BrandSanderson my first read in this genre was sword of truth. What are your thoughts on that series?

BrandSanderson Sun Sep 06
@boothy52 Enjoyed the first book. Didn’t ever finish the second.

DivaJilly Sun Sep 06
@BrandSanderson I have a huge empty void in my soul where Stormlight 3 is supposed to be. Kaladin might be my favorite fictional hero ever.

@DivaJilly Thanks! I am working on it. I promise. Follow on my website’s progress bars.

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 17
@KoralChadwick I am unlikely to have time with the book release. But send an email through my website with the questions and deadline.

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 17
@KoralChadwick I will try, but no promises.

@BrandSanderson I won’t be mad if Michael Whelan gets the job

MentalMegalodon Mon Sep 14
@Mikemclendon @BrandSanderson I don’t remember where I read it, but I recall hearing he was supposed to do the entire series.

BrandSanderson Mon Sep 14
@MentalMegalodon @Mikemclendon We would love Michael for as many books as he wants to do.

BrandSanderson Mon Sep 14
@lamguin The Shattered plains are far from desolate. πŸ™‚

DaveRHamilton Mon Sep 14
@BrandSanderson how does one go about becoming a member of your team? Sounds like the perfect job!

BrandSanderson Mon Sep 14
@DaveRHamilton Well @PeterAhlstrom has known me for 15 years, and Isaac around 12, so…

AliJuhdi Mon Sep 14
@BrandSanderson do the artists read the novel or do you just describe what you want?

BrandSanderson Mon Sep 14
@AliJuhdi Depends on the artist and if there is a draft done in time.

rhynodavid Tue Sep 15
@BrandSanderson when is the book going to be on sale??! It’s my all time favourite series so cannot wait!

BrandSanderson Tue Sep 15
@rhynodavid Not for another year or so, I’m afraid. I’m still writing it.

My work for today: signing these. (If you want one, details are here.) link pic

William_Pennell Thu Sep 17
@BrandSanderson do you look at the first and last book and see how much your signature changes? be interesting to see a tweet

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 17
@William_Pennell Signature is the same. Inscription suffers though.

nmcutler Thu Sep 17
@BrandSanderson Does that include the personalized ones?! Because I took that to mean “Ask Brandon a question since I won’t be there” πŸ˜‰

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 17
@nmcutler I tried to answer questions. Some that asked for a general fact didn’t get answered.

WriteSuPenn Thu Sep 17
@BrandSanderson on Oct. 13 you’re going to be my 14yo’s first ever live author. He’s very excited. Thanks for coming all the way to MI.

JustinCarmony Thu Sep 17
@BrandSanderson I have a trans-atlantic flight on Oct 1st & Oct 5th, any way to buy a copy before Oct 6th?

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 17
@JustinCarmony I wish. But it makes bookstores mad if we let one sell early but not the others. πŸ™

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 17
@JustinCarmony oh, right. Peter is correct. We can’t get you one. But some bookstores do let them slip. Try a smaller store first.

DonnovanKidwell Thu Sep 17
@BrandSanderson I feel much less silly about my request for a neat fact now

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 17
@DonnovanKidwell I wasn’t able to do all the neat fact ones because of time. I got some; others got a RAFO. πŸ™‚

JWOUTLAW13 Thu Sep 17
@BrandSanderson I think (hope) that was mine….was the request “draw something cool :)”?

BrandSanderson Thu Sep 17
@JWOUTLAW13 No they asked for a Llama specifically. You got a stick figure of Wayne or an Allomantic Symbol. Can’t remember which was which.

@BrandSanderson Hi Brandon I don’t suppose there’s any chance at all of sticking an ol Irish date on your October UK book tour? #PrettyPlease

BrandSanderson Fri Sep 18
@Deci29 Man, I feel bad for always flying over you. Blame my publisher. I think they forget they sell books in Ireland too.

Deci29 Fri Sep 18
@BrandSanderson Will do! Maybe throw in a word to said publisher for us next time? πŸ™‚ (We’re like cooler England, promise!) Love your work.

BrandSanderson Fri Sep 18
@Deci29 Will do. My sister in law just got back from Ireland and I am jealous.

david51213 Fri Sep 18
@BrandSanderson Do you know when the paperback of Shadows of Self will be released?

BrandSanderson Fri Sep 18
@david51213 I don’t. It is usually one year, but with the next book out in Jan, could be earlier.
