    Interview: 2012

    Brandon Sanderson (1 August 2011)

    Moving A Memory of Light's progress bar up 2% to 36%. Expect it to move a tad more slowly this week than last. This patch has less work done on it.

    BRANDON SANDERSON (2 AUGUST)

    I wonder if it would be too spoilery to post a running count of significant named WoT characters who have died so far in A Memory of Light.

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Granted, that count might be 0 so far, so no spoilers yet. I'm just saying... It could be fun to start a count.

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    (Note, I'm not going to do it. Too spoilery. Just trying to think of things to tweet about the books, as there's so little I can say.)

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    How about a non-spoilery Easter egg instead? Each of the three prologues has had at least one complete scene written by RJ before he died.

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    When I split the books, I split the prologue in a way that at least one of those scenes went into each book.

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Prologues were important to RJ, particularly in the later books, and I wanted his stamp to be on each one of the three prologues.

    AUSTIN MOORE

    The scene with the Borderland towers in Towers of Midnight prologue was all RJ correct?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Yes. I've confirmed that before. Good eye, if you spotted it on your own.

    Interview: May 2nd, 2012

    Terez (8 May 2012)

    Can you supply date, town, and bookstore?

    Mark Grayson

    This past Wednesday May 2nd in Las Vegas in the lobby of the Golden Nugget hotel. He was in town as one of the guests/teachers of a writers convention. He squeezed in a quick signing for local fans. If you signed up for his newsletter and gave your location as in the Vegas area you got an email from Peter about the signing. There were 8 or 9 of us there so it was pretty cool.

    Brandon Sanderson

    He let us ask some questions but didn't give any new details that aren't already out there. The info on the prologue came up as he was talking about his progress revising the book and how the ending was pretty much all RJ and didn't even need to be polished. He then mentioned that parts of the prologues of all 3 books had been written or dictated by RJ but the scene that was released was not one of them.

    Interview: Feb 7th, 2013

    Question

    Loial is my favorite character in the series. Are his scenes in A Memory of Light written more by Brandon Sanderson or by Robert Jordan?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Brandon replies by saying he will need to keep this vague due to not wanting to reveal spoilers to those who have not finished reading. He will answer this individually when the person comes up to him in line. He is against readers "looking" for him or for Robert Jordan in the books. The epilogue was entirely written by Robert Jordan, except for one portion that Brandon wrote.

    Interview: Feb 22nd, 2013

    Question

    Was Robert Jordan's original draft of that as bloody as the way it came out?

    Brandon Sanderson

    A lot of the deaths, he didn't write any of the actual death scenes, he just indicated who lived and died. I just upped the ante somewhat. I wasn't going to have the Last Battle come without substantial losses, and so, where he didn't instruct me, this person lives, I had some measure of, yeah. And so, I did up the body count. I know he was planning to kill off a number of characters, but he also, killing people, and letting them stay dead was not one of Jim's strong suits. He was very fond of his characters, and I know there were lots that he was planning to kill. I don't think that he would have killed as many as I, maybe. I don't know. It's what we felt the story needed, in talking to Harriet and Team Jordan. Maybe he would have. I did what I thought made the best story.

    Interview: Feb 22nd, 2013

    Question

    What about Cadsuane being summoned to become Amyrlin?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Cadsuane was going to give up the three Oaths, and go live forever. Cadsuane's fate was not my idea.
