Umm, the question mark does belong outside the quotation marks in that instance. It's not part of the title. (Though the title should not be in quotation marks in the first place, so never mind.)

It's periods and commas that often behave "illogically" in Standard American English. Not question marks or exclamation points.

To get any version of White Sand you have e-mail Brandon.[/color]

How long does it usually take him to reply? Cause I emailed him 1 or 2 weeks ago and he neither confirmed nor denied whether he could email me those books.

It depends on how busy he is.

Everything kind of went out the door now that he spends so much time working on AMoL. I imagine he gets quite a bit of mail from the WoT crowd, both pos and neg. Give it time some time or possibly try to get tight with Brandon's crew.

I believe he's getting more than 100 legitimate e-mails every day now, and some days he skims for names that pop out and leaves the rest to deal with later in a big batch.

Wow, didn't know that.  Thanks, Ookla!

Just for the sake of up-ing my post count (Jay Kay! ehl oh ehl), I went to email Brandon about getting White Sands, and he had literally, not 5 minutes before, sent his reply to an earlier email I had sent him. Talk about cool. That being said, now I can't wait for White Sands (if I can get it).

The Previous statement is False.
(bythe way, that's a self-reliant paradox)

Oh sorry, I was thinking this was one of the many threads recently started by UtopiaGreen.  As far as I know you are utterly lacking in troll-ness.

Good grief!!  :o No wonder he never replied to my email a while ago. Hmm. Maybe I need to be more creative with my email titles or something...

I'm in the same boat Shrain  ;D, but I think maybe my email address is too weird and annoying to look real.  :D

I see Brandon has a second and third Mistborn trilogy planned. I like this revelation. Anyone know anything about those trilogies?

Brandon has said at more than one signing that he eventually wants to revisit the Mistborn world. The second trilogy would be a few hundred years later, so it's more of a modern urban setting and the events of the first trilogy have passed into legend. The third trilogy would be even further into the future, in a more science fiction setting.

He won't get to it for a few years yet, though. I'm guessing he'll start the second Mistborn trilogy after at least 3 Way of Kings books are out, and the publishing gap between the end of the 2nd trilogy and the start of the 3rd trilogy will be a similar length to the publishing gap between the end of the 1st trilogy and the start of the 2nd trilogy.

Of the actual plot and characters of the 2nd and 3rd trilogies, nothing is known.
