Stephanie Fowers / What age group are Stephanie's books appropriate for?
« on: December 07, 2009, 05:12:16 AM »
I've got a 13 year old niece that has unfortunately been lured to the dark side and now likes Chick Lit.  I figure that having her read something is better than her not reading so I'll feed her habit.  I normally give books for Christmas, but am totally out of my league in this genre.  Are these books suitable for 13 year old tomboys gone girlyish?

Also, do you have any other suggestions for other books/authors to feed her habit with?

Brandon Sanderson / How does Brandon get paid for WoT
« on: December 06, 2009, 07:38:22 PM »
I was just wondering if anybody knew what Brandon's contract arrangement with the Jordan estate is for finishing of the Wheel of Time series.  Is he getting a percentage of the royalties, or is he doing the work for a flat fee?  I'm not looking for numbers, just trying to satisfy my curiosity as to what the pay mechanism is.

Brandon Sanderson / What's Brandon up to now?
« on: April 12, 2009, 05:56:27 AM »
Since Brandon got to 100% on the revision to The Gathering Storm, I've noticed that his progress bars have stopped moving.  Now I don't expect him to keep working at the pace that he did for that last couple of weeks, but I did hope to see something change.  Does anybody know what Brandon is up to now?

I've got a few guesses.
1)  Taking a short break to recover from the big push to submit The Gathering Storm.
2)  Doing another quick feedback/edit cycle with said book.
3)  Trying to pick up the pieces of things he had to hack up to make a coherent story for TGS and weave them together for AMOL:2.
4) Working on some other project.
5) Some combination of the previous 4.

Anybody in the know want to comment?
