Last chance to vote for the David Gemmell Legend Award

Last chance to vote for the David Gemmell Legend Award I’ve mentioned a few times that both WARBREAKER and THE GATHERING STORM are among five nominees for the David Gemmell Legend Award. Well, voting on the award ends on Monday May 31st. Since the award is based in the UK, I assume the voting closes…

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Eighty Part 2

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Eighty Part 2 Sazed Sees Mistwraiths I worry that I didn’t get to show mistwraiths very much in this book. It’s not that big of an issue—they’re only a minor world feature, and are only tangentially important. Still, they’re a part of the kandra past and culture, and I want readers…

Play Magic with Brandon at CONduit!

Play Magic with Brandon at CONduit! All. The Magic draft at Jordancon was a blast, so I figured I’d try to get something rolling for CONduit this year. (It’s the science fiction convention up in Salt Lake.) A lot of people have written me wanting a chance to hang out with me and play. Well,…

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Eighty

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Eighty Her Eyes Lingered Fondly If you’ve been keeping track, this Terriswoman is, indeed, the romantic interest I promised Micah DeMoux by the end of the book. He said he didn’t care if he ended up with an important character—that didn’t matter to him. He just wanted Captain Demoux to find…

Provo Children’s Book Festival

Provo Children’s Book Festival There’s an appearance today that I forgot to mention on the blog or website. The Provo Children’s Book Festival is happening at the Provo Library. It’s a great event, with lots of authors and fun. I believe there’s a free book being given to every child who comes. > Of course,…

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Nine

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Nine The Mists Chose Someone There’s a lot more going on behind the scenes than even the author of these epigraphs knows. Reasons why Vin was chosen, and why the power of Preservation needed a new mind to control it. The author is right in that Preservation did need someone to…

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Eight

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Eight Sazed’s Second Time in Prison The other time Sazed was imprisoned was, of course, when he was thrown in jail in an attempt to get close to Vin and rescue her. That was way back at the end of book one. It strikes me as very amusing that the kandra…

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Seven

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Seven Elend Inspects Kredik Shaw A short Elend chapter here, again as kind of a slowdown between larger events. I’ll be curious to see what people think of Vin’s god scenes. It took a lot of playing around and work to determine how exactly I wanted her to interact and think…

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Six

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Six The North Pole One of my big challenges in the geography of this world was figuring out how we could have a kingdom set at the pole of the world while at the same time maintaining a normal day/night cycle. My original plan was for the Well of Ascension to…
