VIDEO: Brandon Sanderson Wrote HOW MANY Novels Before He Was Published?????

It's a kind of a scary thought: Brandon Sanderson had written 12 full manuscripts before one of them was accepted and he became a published author. Thankfully, he broke through, and now book 2 of his phenomenal YA series is out.  (And go here to listen to an audiobook sneak-peek of FIREFIGHT.)

Check out this video and learn more about a talented writer who had to push on despite receiving mountains of rejection letters from publishers. The music is pretty cheesy, the words are great.

Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite authors (see my review of STEELHEART here) and this new novella about a detective and his ghostly companions is sure to be another amazing tale.
