HOLY COW BRANDON SANDERSON

Some of you may have already heard this, but Brandon Sanderson has been chosen to write the 12th and last book in the Wheel of Time Series. Robert Jordan (real name James Rigney) passed away this past September.

You don't need to hear this from me. Check it out on Brandon's website: CLICK HERE.

Do you have any idea what a big deal this is? Unbelievable. The series has sold millions of copies, so this will basically turn Brandon into a mega superstar. He was already well on his way, but this will make it official.

How cool is it that his name will be on my book in March as an endorsement? Here's my original post about him: CLICK HERE (from a few weeks ago).

Brandon, a hearty congratulations. Wow. I'm speechless.

Wow...I'm just reeling from the news of Robert Jordan's death...I hadn't heart yet. I've been reading that series since 1996...can't believe he's gone.

Wow.

This is incredible! I felt lucky that he'll be speaking at the Storymaker conference, but now I feel even luckier!

Tamra, thanks for the awesome review! Man, that's awesome. Thank you very much.

It's just way cool about Brandon. It's very surreal for me because I know him so well. It's just weird. And awesome!

Kimberly, did you get your ARC? Did everyone who was supposed to?
