Brandon Sanderson Book Deal Could Exceed $2.5 Million

See what you started , Al?

SF Scope is reporting that Brandon Sanderson’s latest books sales — the first four books in a new series called The Way of Kings expected to appear in the second half of 2010 — comes with a per-book advance in the six figure range. With performance-added bonuses, the deal “could exceed $2.5 million”!

That’s a nice chunk of change.

3 Comments on Brandon Sanderson Book Deal Could Exceed $2.5 Million

  1. That will pay admission to a lot of Star Trek conventions.

  2. Sanderson is rather hit or miss for me.  I loved Elantris but could never get into the Mistborn series and I couldn’t stand Warbreaker.  Still, Sanderson is a capable and original writer.  I’m looking forward to the first book in his Memory of Light trilogy to tie out The Wheel of Time.

  3. I had never heard of Brandon Sanderson until I read this piece of news. That’s a big fee he’s getting. Have his previous books been bestsellers or are the publishers going on potential for this series, especially since he’ll have additional name recognition after working on the Wheel of Time?

    Is Brandon a good writer?
