WOT digital scavenger hunt!

By Linda

Starting August 31st, Brandon and Tor.com are running a digital WOT scavenger hunt.

There is an encrypted Wheel of Time secret on Brandon Sanderson’s site that will require the combined efforts of many fans in many cities to find all the codes to unlock the entire page. Each code unlocks a different piece of the page. The codes are on the back of the WoT bumper stickers pictured right which Brandon will secrete in copies of his books or Wheel of Time books in the different stores he’ll visit on his The Way of Kings book tour.

Each city will have at least one hidden code. However, WOT secrets will not appear in Sam Weller's books or in the release party books because things were not organised in time.

I could just cry! It's like 6 hours away from me TONIGHT. If I had realized I would have made plans to make the drive but sadly I can't be of any help and I know of no fans over in that direction. Best of luck on the hunt!

It was rather sudden DeAnna.

Brandon needs to come to South Florida instead of farther up north. Florida is too big for only one Brandon visit :(
Oh well I'll just have to make sure he comes closer than 3 hours to me for the TOM tour.
