Publisher's Summary

Epic fantasy writer and New York Times best seller Brandon Sanderson joined us in the Audible Studios to discuss Oathbringer, the third book in his Stormlight Archive, and he revealed his process for getting his books just right. Brandon also spoke about how others can sometimes discover that they're writing in the wrong genre and told us about the books he has unpublished.

Known for his thrilling imagination, immensely prolific writing and, of course, the creation of the Cosmere universe, in which all of his books are connected, Brandon Sanderson is a force to be reckoned with in the world of fantasy. With Oathbringer we get a return to a planet swept by apocalyptic storms and a world tipping into war as aristocratic families move to control ancient artefacts from a past civilisation that can win wars.

The one and only!

This guy is the best! Not only is he a prolofic and imaginative writer, but he loves to teach and share his experience. Nice interview.

If you are reading this, go check his courses on writing science fiction and fantasy on YouTube. They are insanely awesome!

writters feedback

I enjoyed listening Mr. sanderson's take on writting, I'm getting into writing in my mid 40s I think I agree with him about the points he mention, when things don't flow organically, and you toss it to the side and start over :), that's so true ha ha

fun

It gives a quick view into the Author which is exactly what it is supposed to be...
A little short though, I'd have preferred if it was about 25 minutes so they could actually get into some meat

Glad I checked this out.

I found it interesting to hear how he plans out his stories. I'm glad I checked this out and will go looking for my other favorite audible narrators and authors.

Interesting insights

It's brief but still interesting. He takes a different approach to getting past writer's block.

Sanderson is such an interesting author. Not only is he prolific, but he has come up with a lot of compelling ideas. I’m always looking forward to what’s next!

Decent interview, wish it was longer

They could use some extra length to discuss e.g. Sanderson's other past works, his writing process, his inspirations, etc.

I like his books. One of the longest out there.

I like his books. One of the longest out there but worth listening on audible. I owned a paperback of his book Way of kings. Took me months to finish. Oathbringer hopefully is as good as I expects.
