Fantasy Author Brandon Sanderson Offers Surprise Subscriptions With Four New Books

Popular fantasy author Brandon Sanderson has announced four surprise novels and two surprise subscriptions on Kickstarter. Those who back the project have the option of:

  • a quarterly subscription, where they'll get one secret new book every quarter in 2023, or 
  • an year-long subscription, where they get one secret new Sanderson box every single month in 2023; four boxes will contain the new books, and the other 8 will be a "delightful assortment of merchandise and goodies" themed to one of his worlds or concepts (see themes here).

As of 5pm Eastern Time, the amount pledged was fast approaching a jaw-dropping $17 million.

"Over the last two years, I've kept an incredible secret: I've been working on secret projects without telling anyone," says Sanderson in a video posted to the Kickstarter page. He says he wrote an extra novel in 2020 during the pandemic lockdown, as a secret gift to his wife, showing only her the pages. He was so inspired he wrote three more novels after that.

Subscription boxes range from $40 to $500 plus shipping (see here). Themed swag boxes will include three items: one featured and two supporting items. Some boxes may contain clothing (backers will be asked for clothing size).

"Call this the silver lining of 2020 and 2021," Sanderson said. Interested? You have until Thursday, March 31 2022 7:00 PM ET to make a pledge.

When she isn’t thinking about subscriptions she thinks about entertainment, pop culture and BTS. Her most fervent wish is that a BTS box becomes a reality.

FYI – if anyone dropped the ball like me, you might still be able to buy into this through the backer kit portal! Did this for the BF’s birthday gift. Didn’t go all the way for the full splurge though. @Kai do you know if MSA is going to review the swag boxes? Or is any reader going to subscribe? Would LOVE to see a post or two about what ends up in the swag boxes 🙂

I chose the ebooks only, but now I’m considering the ‘swag’ boxes. The backer numbers are huge, they can get really creative with that kind of buying power!

I was thinking the ebooks, too; four 400-page novels for $10 each? Sounds good! With the Add-On option,wouldn’t it be possible to choose to add a swag box here & there? I can’t find the explanation for that again; could swear I read it somewhere!
Total is over 23m and climbing as you watch!

I’ve been obsessed with watching the total climb on the Kickstarter! It’s incredible. I’m a big fan of Sanderson but I’m on the fence on backing…seems a bit pricey to me.
