Sanderson was chosen by the estate of Robert Jordan to complete work on the final installments of the “Wheel of Time” saga and his current fantasy offering “Warbreaker” is winning critical praise.
According to SF Scope, Sanderson has just signed a new four-book deal with Tor. The four books will be the first four volumes of a new epic fantasy series to be called “The Way of the Kings” with the first expected to appear in the second half of 2010.
Sanderson’s agent, Joshua Bilmes told SF Scope, “”he books are planned to alternate with the three books by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson that will conclude Jordan’s ‘Wheel of Time’ series. Per book advances [for the new series] are in the six figures, and with performance-based bonuses possible total advances on the deal could exceed $2.5 million.”
