Do You Want to Appear in A Memory of Light?

Do You Want to Appear in A Memory of Light? It has become a tradition for me to auction off naming rights to one of the characters in each of my novels.  In the past, I’ve done this locally, with a church group.  People would ‘bid’ cans of food that they would donate to the…

Amphigory!

Amphigory! All right, there has been way too much highbrow political mumbo jumbo being posted on this website recently. It’s time we get back to our roots. And, what are those roots? Stupid puns, of course! Last week commemorated the passing of a certain political figure in American history, and so I just couldn’t help…

Amphigory + What I’m Working On

Amphigory + What I’m Working On Okay, so I’m off by a few hours. Sorry about that. I wanted to get this posted on Tuesday, but it will have to be a wee-hours Wednesday post. Scroll down for pun stupidity. Since It’s so late, I’m going to hold off on those annotations (since I have…

EUOLogy: Goodbye Mr. Jordan

EUOLogy: Goodbye Mr. Jordan Cross posted from the EUOLogy section of my website: My career, like many young fantasy authors, has been deeply influenced by Robert Jordan, and I find his passing a to be a tragedy for the entire community. I still remember the first time I saw EYE OF THE WORLD on bookshelves.…

Huzzah!

Huzzah! Well, folks, I can safely say that I know ONE reason why the book has been so tough to find for some people. We got numbers for last week today, and they look pretty darn good. Bookscan (the Nielsen ratings for books) lists MISTBORN: WELL OF ASCENSION as the #3 hardback fantasy of the…

It’s Out! + Amphigory Mistborn: The Well of Ascension is out! We’re really keeping our fingers crossed for first week sales on this one, so if you’ve been waiting for it to come out, you should be happy to know that it’s on shelves pretty much everywhere! Some people have even been noting on my…

Update From the Desert + Chapter

Update From the Desert + Chapter I’m still down here in Southern Utah, but the hotel has interment access, so I figured it was time to get off my duff and post something. (Well, actually, I’m still sitting on my duff as I post, but you get the idea.) I don’t know if I mentioned,…

Amphigory!

Amphigory! Yes, for those who were hoping these were gone, THOU FOOLS! Bad puns are my life-blood. Each time one makes Tage groan, I grow a little bit stronger. Soon I will rule the world. Need a clue? I’m hard at work at the Mistborn 3 rewrite, and–alas–have not had any time to read Harry…

Mistborn Prime

Mistborn Prime All right, as promised, here is the first chapter (actually, the prologue) from Mistborn Prime. That’s my name for the original ‘Mistborn’ book I wrote back in 2001. This isn’t too bad editing wise, but the writing itself isn’t up to my current skill level. So, please don’t hold that against me. However,…

Sanderson’s First Law

Sanderson’s First Law Introduction I like magic systems. That’s probably evident to those of you who have read my work. A solid, interesting and innovative system of magic in a book is something that really appeals to me. True, characters are what make a story narratively powerful—but magic is a large part of what makes…
