France has been awesome so far. Onward to day two of the Utopiales convention. Thanks to all who have come to see me.

BrandonSandrson Sat Nov 13
Day three of Utopiales is done. I have decided that French people are extremely nice. And extremely bescarved.

BrandonSandrson Mon Nov 15
Mistborn Short Novel first draft is finished. 85k long. Out next fall. Blog post coming. Huzzah!

BrandonSandrson Wed Nov 17
Guys, I don't know if you've heard, but France is REALLY far away. That flight was looooooooooong. (One 'o' for each hour.)

scalzi Wed Nov 17
OH HELL NO: The Web page for the MFA program at UC Irvine has the phrase "centers around" on it. #GrammarHeadSmack

BrandonSandrson Wed Nov 17
@scalzi I got rejected by Irvine MFA. & Columbia. & NYU. Iowa too. Was sending Elantris, which eventually sold to Tor

scalzi Wed Nov 17
@BrandonSandrson Ever get the urge to mail your No. 1 NYT best seller ranking to them and go "Love, NOT your donation-providing alumnus"?

tobiasbuckell Wed Nov 17
@scalzi @BrandonSandrson lol, I was bumped from BGSU of all places. I should totally do that

BrandonSandrson Thu Nov 18
New Mistborn novel has a title. Mistborn: The Alloy of Law. Doing a quick revision here before sending it to my agent/editor.

skatter Thu Nov 18
@BrandonSandrson Brandon, just curious. A twitterless friend just asked where the new book fits in the Mistborn timeline?

BrandonSandrson Thu Nov 18
@skatter 300 years after Hero of Ages. Technology is Edwardian, mostly. Guns, the advent of electricity, skyscrapers being built.

HolyJaw Thu Nov 18

BrandonSandrson Thu Nov 18
@HolyJaw Lol. Well, it won't be out for a year or so...

theprawn Thu Nov 18
@BrandonSandrson Wait, I thought Mistborn was a trilogy?

BrandonSandrson Thu Nov 18
@theprawn Mistborn is both. The new book is set many years later, deals with new characters, etc.

BrandonSandrson Thu Nov 18
@theprawn All of my worlds have other stories planned. If I say something is a trilogy/stand alone, I'm talking about those characters.

rayners Fri Nov 19
Finished @BrandonSandrson's The Way of Kings last night. Wow! That book was profoundly awesome in ways I cannot even begin to articulate.

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@rayners Thank you very much. :)

wolven74 Fri Nov 19
@BrandonSandrson Just finished ToM. Well done sir. Well done indeed.

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@wolven74 It has been an honor to work on them. Thank you.

caseyfreeland Fri Nov 19
@BrandonSandrson Have TGS signed hardcover and Audiobook. Downloading Towers now. Bliss! Thanks for your work.

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@caseyfreeland Thank you for the kind words.

Machiknight Fri Nov 19
@BrandonSandrson how long does the editorial process take?

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@Machiknight Depends on the book. As long as a year for some novels, much faster for other novels.

Andrewcyr Fri Nov 19
@brandonsandrson What kind of release schedule are you shooting for with WoK? Bi-yearly releases? Every few years?

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@Andrewcyr Two every three years.

kushieda_minori Fri Nov 19
@BrandonSandrson When will Alcatraz Versus The Knights Of Crystallia be available in softcover?

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@kushieda_minori I'm not sure, honestly. We keep asking, and get no firm answer from Scholastic. I was hoping this month.

egonegative Fri Nov 19
@BrandonSandrson How do you write so much? Do you not sleep? Or have these epic stories been bouncing about your brain for decades?

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@egonegative Kings has indeed been bouncing around for decades. For the new Mistborn novel, it's more of a free-write experiment.

jamesbigler Thu Nov 18
@BrandonSandrson Were you able to take the direct flight from Paris to SLC? That can take quite a lot time off the whole flight time.

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@jamesbigler Yes, we did take the direct flight, which is nice. Still 11 hours, though.

GrahamChops Thu Nov 18
@BrandonSandrson @PeterAhlstrom Maybe it's too early to know, but the new MB book will be hardcover right?

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@GrahamChops Should be hardcover.

FitzChivalry_ Thu Nov 18
I miss Robert Jordan. As appreciative as I am of @BrandonSandrson it's just not the same. #WoT #Books #WritingTilTheyNailYourCoffinShut

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
@FitzChivalry_ I agree.

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
NaNo isn't looking good for me this year, I'm afraid. Wasn't in a place to start a new book Nov 1st. Continued M:AofL instead.

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
In Canada, the Kindle version of MISTBORN: THE HERO OF AGES has been unavailable due to an error. Now you can buy it.

BrandonSandrson Fri Nov 19
The Mistborn trilogy holiday bundle with the Steel Alphabet Medallion thrown in is back! Only 30 in stock.
