At the Lost Metal release event, Brandon had an announcement regarding Secret Projects. Tor and Gollancz (Brandon's US and international publishers) will have sale links for the Secret Project physical editions that will appear in bookstores out on Wednesday, November 16th in the US. Each one will release after the Kickstarter, so for Secret Project 1, backers get it in January, but the Tor physical release in April. Secret project 2 will be June 2023, SP3 in October 2023, and SP4 January 2024.

At least in some parts of the world, The Lost Metal, the fourth and final book of Mistborn Era 2, is now out! It's midnight GMT, so that means at least Asia, Oceania, and Europe should have the book by now. Of course, ebooks and audiobooks can appear at different times, so Americans will need to wait a bit longer, potentially, but regardless, very soon the Lost Metal will no longer be lost. Hooray!

The Lost Metal, the fourth and final book of Mistborn Era 2, is finally here. It's been eleven years since the first one of these--the Alloy of law--came out in 2011, so we've been waiting quite a while. There's tons of ground for this book to cover, both in wrapping up Era 2 and setting up Mistborn Era 3, and this is definitely the longest of the Era 2 books by far. So how did it go?

Today we have some exciting news about Arcanum!

If you've never visited, Arcanum - The Brandon Sanderson Archive is a collection of questions and answers about Sanderson's works asked at various signings, releases, and other events.

We've just released a new update to the site, and we want to let everyone know what it's all about. Ultimately, this update is about making it easier for users to discover content and find help. First is a brand new Readings page, which collects all of Brandon's readings into one central hub. There are also several new Help pages, which give assistance on everything from navigating Arcanum to using advanced search or adding new content to the site. While much of this information could be found in the forums, you can now find it right in Arcanum itself. Lastly, you'll find an updated main menu which makes finding all of these pages, and everything else on the site, easier than ever.

NaCoWriMo 2022

By Jofwu, in Columns and Features,

Hey everyone! The Keepers of the Coppermind have a brief announcement for you!


If you haven't heard, this is a particularly special month for the Coppermind: It's NaCoWriMo! It’s the famous, very well known, National Coppermind Writing Month! Well, maybe you know somebody participating in NaNoWriMo (for those of you taking that challenge, our hats are off to you!)... But if writing 50,000 words of a novel isn’t really your thing, but you want to contribute to the wiki, then this is the challenge for you!


Never helped edit the Coppermind wiki before? Have no fear! Editing the wiki is open to everyone because we are always thankful for any help you can give! And it's easy to get started on! Fixing mistakes is easy, so don’t worry about messing anything up. Your contributions are invaluable to us, and the best way to learn is through experience!

The madlads, they did it again! They said they were done with the art, yet it keeps coming! Well, this one is the last one for a little bit, for realsies.

So what do we have here? In keeping up with our annual tradition (a tradition we established last year, so it's not a very big data set, but still), we are dedicating October to its signature holiday, Halloween - and exploring some of the horror themes present in the Cosmere. 

Join us after the break to see what this happy ghost in the preview is trying to get to!

Shardcast: Adolin and Maya

By Chaos, in Shardcast,

It's our last Rhythm of War topic for 2022, and our last Shardcast before The Lost Metal! It's Adolin and Maya, because we've never done a dedicated cast on Adolin even before RoW. We talk about Adolin and Sadeas, pronunciation, ADOLINBLADE, how amazing Adolin and Maya are, and whether Maya will be healed. Also featuring a ghostly pumpkin.

Alright, hopefully you've had enough time to relax after all these commissions of Kelsier's crew, because today we have a big one for you! 
This last August was the first time we got to spend our newly-expanded art budget on a single piece - you might recall that we had access to this level of funding back in April, when we commissioned a couple of pieces from Nozomi Matsuoka, but that was a couple of pieces and from an artist we had already worked with; and July was obviously a series of relatively simple illustrations. So we were all excited to see what kind of doors our larger budget could open for us.
Follow us after the break to find out what's behind door number one ;)
And finally, last but not least, we top thing things off with honorary crewmember Fuzz himself!
This last commission is extra dear to our hearts because it comes from our very own FelCandy! She has long been involved with our art scene in ways both small (custom emoji, art ideas & direction) and big (almost singlehandedly making the Cosmere Inktober a thing; that's still going on, by the way, check out the #CosmereInktober2022 hashtag on your favorite social media website), so we've been wanting to give her one of these official commissions for a while now, and this was finally a good fit! 

We will be at this November's Dragonsteel convention! How exciting! A bunch of us are going to be at a variety of panels for you! Who's all coming, we got me, Jess, Ian, David, Evgeni, Rosemary, Mi'ch, Kadie, Jof. Danielle. Marvin's flying from Germany to be there. So many of us will be there and don't hesitate to say hi! 

We are stretching the definition of a crewmember here a little bit, but Lord Renoux played an important role in Kelsier's plan to bring an end to the Final Empire, and even if Kelsier himself doesn't consider him crew, we do (at least for the purposes of this series of commissions).
Barthollamew's signature colorful art style has long been something we love (plus, who doesn't love memes?). Now, the Final Empire is not the best place to showcase this style, but if anyone was going to wear some color, it was going to be the fancy nobleman.
Ha ha! You didn't think we were done, did you? With all of the clever and subtle foreshadowing about "core crewmembers" in the previous posts, you should've known that we'd dip into some less central members of Kelsier's gang, and what better way to start this second batch than Mare herself?
Viridia, often known as viridializard (Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr), is better known in this fandom for her Stormlight art (just look at this Evi), but she liked the idea of tackling Mare enough, and who are we to stand between the artist and her art? 
And finally, to round off Kelsier's crew, we give you one spooky boi - it is spooky month, after all, we would be remiss not to include Spook himself!
We say this a lot 'round these parts, and especially so with these crewmember commissions, but this piece's artist - Theodore Oliver, a.k.a. lazifyre - is yet another artist we've been wanting to work with for a long time. They have a lot of good art we could show off here (like this Siri & Susebron), but none are more iconic than this Inktober piece of Harmony looking after the cast of both Mistborn Eras, except they are all children, and he is a single father of some truly chaotic kids.
