Brandon Sanderson on #Torchat

Here's one for all fans of Brandon Sanderson (and I'm sat firmly on the fence here, I've enjoyed what I've read but it's not grabbing me like it does for others...) that can get onto Twitter later on today. From the email...

November marks one of out most anticipated releases of 2011. 'The Alloy of Law', the new standalone Mistborn novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson. While Brandon (@brandsanderson) is on tour for the new book this week, he offered to join us from the road for our monthly chat on Monday, 11/14 from 1 – 2 PM (EST) to answer questions from fans and talk Mistborn, Wheel of Time, Way of Kings, and his obsession with Magic the Gathering…

Monday also comes along in the middle of the second annual “Great Hunt,” a digital scavenger hunt for the codes to unlock an exclusive secret piece of content relating to the final WoT novel, A Memory of Light, hosted on an encrypted page on Brandon’s website ( As fans find and enter each of the 35 codes, secreted in books along Brandon’s tour or handed out in answer to his cryptic hints (follow along with the twitter hashtag #wotgh), the page will slowly unlock its secret.And if you’re lucky, he just MIGHT announce when that first draft of A Memory of Light will be ready to hand-in…

The chat will be loosely moderated by Justin Golenbock (@jgolenbo), Brandon’s publicist at @torbooks, and Laura Fitzgerald (@Laura_FitzG) of Tor’s digital marketing department, who claims to know a thing or two about Ter’angreal.

Come join us on Monday at 1 PM!

You won't see me there unfortunately, bath time for Hope takes precedence (no matter how much of a New York Times Best Selling Author Brandon Sanderson is...), sounds like it could be fun though.

I wasn't around to check my email last week (holidaying in Malta, wish I was still there) but if I had been then I would have told you all about the dates etc for the 'Alloy of Law' signing tour; sorry about that. There are still a couple of dates left though and they are...
