If I lived ANYWHERE near there, possibly......but as it stands, Toronto, ON Canada is a slight jog from Austin TX.

In reply to the original question up above, QuickTidal, a lot of the people on this board are long-time friends of mine who read my manuscripts for me during the long years when I was trying to get published.  Some of them may even be relations of mine, though whether they will claim me depends on the day in question.  

Generally, the TWG is a board started by a group of friends who wanted to keep in touch with one another once they graduated from college.  Then, I bunch of crazy Brits, Aussies, and...where you from Gorgon?  Michigan?  Anyway, a bunch of random people started hanging out with us and saying neat things, which we think is cool.

I got published, and Dan aka Fellfroshe (the editor of the TWG and head honcho, who also happens to be the DM of my RPG campaign and a member of my writing group) let me set up shop here to have some Brandon Sanderson forums.  

So, that's the short story regarding why a lot of people here have read MISTBORN.  They bug me for hard copies and advance copies and the like.  Those I trust REALLY well get electronic reading copies out of me to give feedback, and then get into the acknowledgements page of the book.  (A lot of these people are in the acknowledgements of ELANTRIS.)  So, hang around long enough, and you might be able to talk me into sending you reading copies.  

Though, I do send out sample chapters to pretty much anyone who asks.  So, if you ever want to see the first three chapters of anything I'm working on, just give me an email through my website.  Or ask here.  Whatever.

(Oh, and for other people, I believe QT here is a guy who was posting on a thread about ELANTRIS over on the Erickson forums, so be nice to him.)

Ok, way cool. I actually had a message board with my friends once cause we could never keep in touch via email, so I can dig that.

Thanks for the info, I assumed it was something along those lines. ^_^

....and I am INDEED the one and same QuickTidal from the Erikson boards!

That's because they've joined the Brandon Sanderson Fan Club, which is $20/year payable to my paypal account.  This will get you full access to his website and drafts of all his books.

Which reminds me, all of you are past due for 2006, pay up.

Yeah, I said I was a newbie, not a troglodite.

Is that the same Paypal account that you use to sell poorly painted warhammer men to unsuspecting 12 year olds?

I must be missing something being such a newb here. It would seem some folk have gotten their hands on all or part of Mistborn to read.....

....and here I am salivating for more Sanderson after Elantris.

I gotta agree that it is Hrathen. At first it is Raoden and Sarene, but later when Hrathen begins his internal struggle, and it's climax, just made him so fantastic. I mean, you knew he was gonna have to do something drastic, but you're not sure what exactly until it happens. Nicely executed.
