Look who e-mailed us…. It was only Brandon Sanderson!!!

I am extremely humbled that my book was named Fantasy Faction’s most anticipated book of 2014, though it is a very strange distinction to earn. It’s a little like being told you’re favored to win the race before you actually start. Or maybe even a little bit like winning the Nobel Peace Prize before you start your presidency. It’s a lot to live up to and a little bit frightening, because the book’s already turned in. I’ve done everything I can to make it fantastic.

You’re not saying that it’s the best book of the year, but that you hope it will be the best. To those of you waiting for the book, I suggest that once you’ve read it, you take a look at the epilogue, where Wit has a few words to say about expectations and the dangers that come along with them.

That's really cool that he took the time out to write to you. What a nice chap! I am incredibly excited for his next wave of books although part of me wishes for a Warbreaker sequel as I adored that book.
