Questioner (paraphrased)

Regarding the Mistbornbooks, do you think you will ever write a prequel trilogy?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

I've considered it, but I don't think it's a good idea. I love the hero's journey, like Rand's journey at the beginning of the Wheel of Time. When writing the Mistborn books, I knew Robert Jordan had done epic fantasy the best it could be done, so I thought,  'what hasn’t been done?' The answer I came to was 'what if the hero lost?' The idea was a good one, but that would make a downer of a book.

Audience Member (paraphrased)

[Star wars prequels reference] *general laughter*

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

*laughter*

I wrote Mistborn a thousand years after the hero lost. I'm think of writing a sequel set centuries after Mistborn.

Questioner (paraphrased)

 Will there be any sequels to Elantris?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

In 2015, the 10th anniversary of the series, he intends to release Dragonriders, three books based on side characters. They will take place 10 years after events, in the city of Dakhor.

Footnote: The only Dragons, or references to dragons in the Cosmere are from the unpublished Dragonsteel,set on Yolen. This proposed title is questionable, as is the "city of Dakhor"

Questioner (paraphrased)

Do you have new stuff, or new ideas?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

Yes—one is The Silence Divine, a world like ours where you gain magic by diseases; another is a world where the only superheroes are all evil super villains and a group of regular people called the [Reckoners] gather to hunt them down and take them out.
