My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hi. I’m Brandon Sanderson. I’m brilliant. I can write a book in any genre and it will be universally adored.
For example, while I’m in the middle of writing the 1000+ page, third book of my 3rd epic fantasy series that most people consider the best fantasy of our day, I got bored.
To keep my mind sharp, I went ahead and wrote a “novella”–what authors of 1000+ page books call normal length books–about buddy cops solving a murder mystery. It’ll be set in the near future, and it will include futuristic crime solving techniques and have a great twist at the end. Trust me, it’s going to be great.
I think I’ll call it…Snapshot.
