      Oathbringer Spoiler Policy   11/13/2017

      Oathbringer is out! Let's make our policy on spoilers clear! 1. You must preface topics with Oathbringer spoilers with the prefix [OB] in the front 2. You are only allowed to post spoilers and spoiler topics in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board, Cosmere Theories, and some select work-related forums. 3. For posts in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board you do not need to use spoiler tags inside a topic marked [OB]. For Cosmere Theories, you also do not need to put spoiler tags inside your topic if the topic has [OB] in the title. However, for Cosmere Theories, if you are adding Oathbringer stuff to an old theory without the [OB] tag, those must go in spoiler tags and you must make it obvious outside the spoiler tag that the spoiler is regarding Oathbringer content. 4. For select things that do require talking about OB spoilers, in Events, Coppermind, and Arcanum forums, those are allowed but keep OB spoilers in spoiler tags 5. Avoid and minimize spoilers in topic titles--even though those two boards will not appear in the Recent Topics ticker, topic titles still appear in Recent Activity and the forum home.  6. You aren't allowed to post Oathbringer spoilers in places other than listed, even with spoiler tags.  It will be nine months and then the Oathbringer board will be re-merged with the Stormlight board and you will not need to tag these spoilers. If you'd like to move something in the Stormlight Archive board to the Oathbringer board, to update it with new Oathbringer information, Report the post and we will happily move it to the Oathbringer spoiler board. Part-by-part Reactions Though the Oathbringer Spoiler Board will be very spoilery, very fast (maybe don't come there until you've read the book, as people do have copies that bookstores sold early), you'll have these five topics for reactions if you want to nerd out: Part 1 Reactions
      Part 2 Reactions
      Part 3 Reactions
      Part 4 Reactions
      Full Book Reactions For parts 1-4, they will not include the interludes immediately following it. On Discord All Oathbringer spoilers on Discord will be exclusively in the #oathbringer_spoilers channel for the nine month spoiler period and nowhere else.

Brandon's Next Book

36 posts in this topic

Is Brandon's next book going to be Stormlight Archive 3 after he finishes writing legion? Or is he going to do another mistborn or other project?

As far as Cosmere, I believe SA 3 is next. The next Mistborn trilogy won't be until after SA 5 and I think Shadows of Self might be after SA 3?

Interesting question. Short answer is, we don't know precisely, and I don't think Brandon is 100% sure either. Here's what I know for sure. He is writing Firefight right now, so that will certainly be out next. After that, last I had heard, should come Rithmatist Two, and then Calamity. After that, things start getting foggy. Peter anticipates Stormlight 3 to be out around fall of 2016. Brandon ideally wanted to get Shadows of Self in before Stormlight 3, but that may not happen. For a long time, we'd heard that the second Mistborn trilogy would come after Stormlight 5. But recently, I've heard that it may begin after Stormlight 3. Brandon's talked about Warbreaker and Elantris sequels for a while now, and those seem to be coming later rather than sooner. And then there are still wildcards. He's been talking about doing Alcatraz 5 for a long time. He also just read a passage from Silence Divine, a book he wasn't even supposed to be writing yet. So, long story short. We know what's coming soon, but long-term things are still in flux.

 

EDIT:

So there was a bit of a miscommunication, as well as some new information. The second Mistborn trilogy will still come after Stormlight 5. Shadows of Self and Calamity have been pushed to after Stormlight 3. I'm relatively pleased with this new line-up :)

Anything that pushes Stormlight ahead of schedule is good news.

So, the as far as we can tell, the current queue is:

 

1.- Steelheart 2: Firefight   (3rd Draft: 50%)

2.- Legion: Skin Deep        (1st Draft: 70%)

3.- Rithmatist 2: (untitled)

4.- Stomlight Archive 3: Stones Unhallowed (working title)

 

I am happy with the line up, Steelheart 2 is more than half done, the last few drafts usually don't take very long. The Rithmatist books aren't very long, since they are for youth-adult audience. I think it wont be very long before work starts on SA 3. I am sooo excited!

sanderson has many stories in his head that he would like to write. what he does is sitting down at his desk and writing whatever he feels like at the moment. that's how he can write so much, by writing what he feels like and not what he feels compelled to. Still not sure how that can work, to me it would be like resting from carrying a boulder by carrying a different boulder, but it works for him.

So, despite having a sort of schedule, and some contractual binds, he may at any moment want to write a chapter of something else, and then he will like it and will make it a new book.

Fall 2016 for SA3? Noooo that's too far away! I was really hoping it would be less than two years... :(

This I can agree with

 

Also, isn't he supposed to write the Mistborn Sequel to Alloy of Law pretty soon?

As I said in my updated post, that's been pushed to after Stormlight 3.

At the signing today he said we would be seeing Firefight (Reckoners #2), then Rithmatist #2, and then Stormlight #3. He didn't specifically mention the Legion sequel but maybe it will show up sometime earlier.

His website shows him as currently writing Legion and is 70% through with the first draft so will likely be released between firefight and Rithmatist #2. Short fiction like Legion usually is considered a side project for him and don't get mentioned when he talks about his next book projects.

In his last newsletter, Sanderson said he would start working on Stormlight 3 later in 2014.

I was wicked happy to read that SA 3 had been pushed up!

 

Timing-wise, Firefight Draft 3 is now 100% done. I am guessing after his WoR tour is over, Brandon will tweak that up a bit more. Then Rithmatist 2 should occupy another few months for him. Let's say that he will be done with that by around September/October of this year, maybe even sooner. IIRC, WoR took him about a year and a half from the beginning of writing to publication (that might actually be totally wrong, I really have no idea), so we could conceivably see SA 3 in early 2016, as opposed to fall.

No, he has said multiple times that he is hoping for the end of 2015. Peter seems skeptical about this...

Sanderson has said a few times that future books in SA won't be as long as the first two - because by this point we know the characters and setting better. But who knows?

I would love a 2015 release!

at the philly signing brandon said he plans for a stormlight book every 18 months so 2015 is very possible.

I feel like it will definitely take Brandon a little more than a year and a half on  average between SA books; he has too many other storming projects going on to make that possible, particularly right now.

Eh. This guy, you know, is a monster. He writes around 3000 words a day, so assuming Stones Unhallowed will be 300k (if it truly is shorter. Then again, that's what he said for Words of Radiance, and we know what happened there :D), then it's only four months, tops, for the first draft. And for Brandon, the first draft is the biggest deal.

 

I honestly would not be surprised either way. The only disappointing thing is hearing Shadows of Self was pushed back... I was really hankering for some more Mistborn between Stormlight...

As much as I love Mistborn, I have no problem having one book be pushed back to make room for a Stormlight books!

Does anyone have access to cloning technology? Apparently there is way too much writing to get done for one Brandon Sanderson.
