THE TIME IS UPON US! Well, close enough anyway. Reactor Magazine (formerly Tor.com) will be releasing one to three chapters of Wind and Truth every Monday at 11 A.M. Eastern Time, beginning on July 29th and continuing until the book comes out on December 6th! They'll go up under the dedicated column on Reactor's website weekly. More details and overview of past updates below the cut.

With Lost Metal closing out Mistborn Era 2, and us now knowing Era 3 is called Ghostbloods, let's talk about what we know about Mistborn: Ghostbloods. Brandon's talked about it a lot over the years. We talk about that and our hopes for the series, along with many, many cold wars. And Discord, of course.

Two years ago, when Brandon first announced the secret projects, people were surprised to hear the audiobooks wouldn't be available on Audible. Brandon had spoken out before about how he was worried about their business practices and what that would mean for authors with a lot less success than him, and for the secret projects––where the rights would initially be in his hands rather than going through Tor first, as Dragonsteel would be publishing the books themselves––he took a big risk, knowing most of his readership was through audio, and decided to promote other alternatives for audiobooks besides the Amazon-owned company. Now, after many conversations with the company, he's reached a historic deal, not aimed at himself, but to benefit indie authors in particular, who are the most affected by Audible's policies regarding royalties and exclusivity. 

Hello hello! The last couple of months saw an uptick in the membership of our Patreon page, in both free and paying members, so if you are one of those - welcome, welcome! (And of you are not, could we interest you?) Either way, hopefully you are enjoying your time here, on the 17th Shard, and hopefully the new year is treating you well. To increase the odds that everything is going peachy, we've got a Yumi and the Nightmare Painter fanart commission for you, right after the break!

Oh my goodness, everyone. We have SO many Words of Brandon episodes ahead of you. We're going out of order, with the Dragonsteel 2023 Spoiler Q&A! And sorry Lift-dragon enjoyers, that theory is dead! We also talk about a surprising amount of Warbreaker stuff, Zane, Mistborn: Birthright, and Alyx solves Silverlight. Some of those are even vaguely relevant to what we are talking about and not just nonsense.
