Words of Radiance Release Livestream


This is last minute, but: the release party at BYU tonight will be livestreamed! It is my understanding this will happen via Google+ Hangouts on Air, so it should be accessible from Brandon's Youtube or his Google+ page. We will keep you updated and edit this post with the exact livestream link when the time comes!

The line thus far has been wonderful, though wristbands have been going fast. This morning, when we started lining up there were about 170 people. That image there is the line, and it actually goes around the corner a bit. Crazy, isn't it? Brandon posted about an hour ago that about half of the bookstore's copies of Words of Radiance are claimed. If you plan to go to the release, please go to the BYU Bookstore and buy it, or buy it online and show them your receipt.

If you're going, we hope to see you there! There will be various awesome games at 10:00pm when the doors open, and then Brandon will start his public Q&A and reading at 10:45pm. But if you can't come, you won't miss out on the Brandonium goodness--just watch the stream!

We will keep you very much posted, and let you know via Twitter what's going on. Also, don't worry, many pictures from the weekend will be in our Gallery and our Facebook page.

Words of Radiance comes out tonight at midnight in the United States. Talk about it in our Words of Radiance board, though remember to only discuss sample chapters until the release at midnight Pacific. Review the spoiler policies.

Read a wonderful, heartwarming introduction to why Words of Radiance is what Brandon has always wanted to write, by the man himself. And if you're still somehow in doubt that Words of Radiance is better than its predecessor, check out our spoiler-free review.

EDIT: Mi'ch here. Due to technical difficulties, we will be unable to livestream. However, we are recording everything right now and will post as soon as we are able. Sorry!

Awesome!  I am so conflicted, I think I should have my book on Kindle by then.  Maybe I will read and listen to the release party!

That person who set up a tent in front of the bookstore on Friday - they made me feel like a fake fan for not flying there and buying a house by the doors or something...

That may have been Wilson. She mentioned something about it being hard to type in a tent in front of BYU during the Mafia game we have going.

Sorry about this, guys. We really wanted to get it working, and Eric and I pretty much exhausted every alternative we could think of. Couldn't get it working in time. Next time will be much better. As it is, I'll take a look at the recording and sound tomorrow. There were some good questions and the reading was great. Really, the entirety of that part of the release party was a lot of fun. I'll post it soon (tomorrow, if the quality is good as is).

Sorry about the lack of the stream, guys. Next time we will have it down, but this time we didn't. Hopefully the audio of the recording will be okay.

Argent--Kerry, Wilson, and I set up a tent Friday night, but Josh and Mi'ch were there the Monday before. More came during the week. On Friday we didn't even get in the top ten numbers.
