Brandon and Book News

    Badali Jewelry makes fantastic licensed jewelry for a bunch of different fantasy series, and they make excellent Brandon Sanderson related jewelry. This week, not only are they holding a spring sale, but they also have new cosmere items in their store! They are finally selling Truthwatcher and Stoneward glyphs, which were missing before for whatever reason. And, there's a spring sale code for you, valid through this Sunday.

    Brandon kicked off a new series of "Weekly Update" videos on his YouTube channel today. It's not long, so we recommend checking it out! But if you're in a hurry or otherwise unable to watch, we'll summarize it below.

    We've got some fresh news on upcoming Skyward books and their current status, some updates on Brandon's upcoming plans, and lastly some announcements about the state of the Tenth Anniversary Way of Kings Kickstarter!

    It's been a hot minute since we've last consolidated Brandon related news, so there's a bunch of stuff to talk about. Between Skyward 3 draft #3 being done, the Mistborn: House War game on Tabletop Simulator, and an art contest by Brandon's Spanish publisher, a lot of other things have happened, so read on to learn more!

    Sanderson took to Reddit earlier today to give us his latest update on Skyward 3!

    This is his second update on the book, following the first in mid-September. The book is still tentatively titled "Nowhere", though Brandon has mentioned several times that the publisher isn't keen on this title, so we will have to wait and see if it sticks. The publisher, Delacorte, has agreed to publish the book around Christmas of next year, so long as Brandon is able to meet a fairly aggressive timeline. We've also got some new details about the nature of the book and its place in the Skyward series, as well as a few comments on Brandon's future plans.

    Let's break it down and see what we can glean from Brandon's post!

    If you're reading that is because it is midnight Eastern time on November 17th, which means Rhythm of War is out! Well, at least digitally, in some time zones, probably! It's always a little weird when ebooks get released. Regardless, this is where we have decided as a website (and Discord server) that full book spoilers are now allowed in the designated spoiler area on the forums, the spoiler channels on Discord, and the Coppermind. Please check out our Rhythm of War and Dawnshard Spoiler Policy topic. 

    It's that time of week again! Tor has posted the latest Rhythm of War sample chapter, and you can find it here. After you've read this week's chapter, we invite you to join the latest discussion in the forums and on our Discord server!

    We will be picking these chapters apart together, and we hope you will join in on the discussion! If you missed previous chapters or discussion threads, you can find both linked in our Sample Chapter and Discussion Thread Index.

    This is the FINAL preview chapter! One week until Rhythm of War!

    Hi everyone! Eric with 17th Shard here, and I'm here to talk to you about Rhythm of War, by Brandon Sanderson, the fourth novel in The Stormlight Archive. This review is completely spoiler free! There will be no spoilers for the preview chapters, or other cosmere stuff, so if you haven't read anything about Rhythm of War, this won't have any information other than some non-spoilery info Brandon has discussed about the structure of the book.

    The wait for Dawnshard is over, at least if you backed The Way of Kings Leatherbound Kickstarter! The novella is being sent out via BackerKit now. For non-backers, they will put the novella on ebook stores, which may take a few more days. There will be a print version of Dawnshard coming to Kickstarter backers, but that won't be until early next year. There will also be an audio version, but according to Brandon that is not coming "for a year at least."
