Yes, there will be a numbering system similar to previous book releases.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

I'm betting it will be a #1 by Book 2.

Quote me all you want on it.

I'm sure you'll be quoted on this, either way. ;)

I'm counting on it.

Oh, look at that!

OK, he's going to be here in Portland on the 13th.  Should I buy and read the book before he gets here, or buy it AT the signing?  I suppose he would rather have more sales right off the bat than at the signings, huh?

AllWrong, it's best to buy the book at the store he's going to be signing at, and keep your receipt and bring it to the signing.

I'm keeping 25 bucks set aside for the night of the 30th.  But then I'm gonna go to the signing on the 31st at the Barnes and Noble that I live, literally, five minutes from.  Two doses of Sanderson in 24 hours!  Yes!
When to live is to die, and to die is to live, does either really matter?

Peter, does Brandon have a limit on how many things he will sign? I will have the ARC for WoK, the release version, mistborn series and a warbreaker that I want signed.  Or would it be better to have him sign just a couple of those?

Brandon will sign a whole stack of books if you bring a stack (as long as they're all written by him). But when there's a big crowd, to keep the line moving along he will personalize only three books per time through the line. So for books above the third one he'll do his signature (looks like a scribble over his name, usually) but won't write "to mycoltbug" or anything extra. If you want that you can go back to the end of the line and wait through it again. :)

Peter,

I am assuming that one of the three personalized books would include WoK? Or would WoK be seperate, as it featured book?

That's what  I was afraid of.

Oh well, will have to decide what I want to do, going to bring all his books (minus the Alcatraz novels) for signing. Would like them all personalized. Hopefully the store won't have too long of a line.

Thanks.

Are you kidding?  It's BYU...nobody goes to sleep early there...(I remember grocery shopping at 1:00 a.m.).   Odds are, if there's a light on, there'll be plenty of people there.  Once they realize they can't buy candy in the store, though, they'll go home.

I saw somewhere else that the last signing only ran until 3:00, though, and that was WoT, so you're probably okay.
If everyone else sits back and does nothing, the bad guy wins.

I'm not going to BYU, a little too long of a drive for me.   :D

Edit: So is that limit of three personalized signed books only for BYU?

Hobbun: What was said was when there's a long queue at a Brandon signing each person on reaching the front of the line is allowed only three personalisations in order to make the queue go faster, they may have more if they go through the line again. This is not just for BYU but for anywhere that has a long queue.

Ok, that's what I thought Peter had meant. But then BYU was brought up again specifically, so I wanted to clarify.

Thanks.
