Brandon Sanderson’s Way Of Kings Leatherbound Kickstarter Breaks $2.5M In First Hour!

The Way of Kings leatherbound edition Kickstarter is live and funded!

In an era where books have more competition than ever, it’s clear that readers are still ravenous. More than ever, readers are glomming on to book series and authors like nobody’s business. One author who is especially popular in this day and age is Brandon Sanderson. Sanderson is well-known for his Mistborn series as well as for finishing Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series. But he will likely be best known in the future for his Stormlight Archive novels, which started with The Way of Kings.

The Way of Kings was published back in 2010 and is the first in a planned 10-volume series. Now, for the 10th anniversary, Sanderson and his Dragonsteel Entertainment are putting out a $200 leatherbound edition of the thousand-page tome. As with all things these days, they put up a Kickstarter to make it happen, with the hope of hitting $250,000.

Needless to say, they broke that record quickly. In fact, they broke it almost instantly. The Kickstarter cracked $1 million in ten minutes and $2 million in thirty. As of this writing, it’s over $2.5 million in — and it’s not stopping. At this rate, we could be looking at a project that raises tens of millions of dollars.

Of course, this could just mean that Sanderson’s fans are just really tapped into his ecosystem. As such, we could see it drop off precipitously after the first couple of days. But that wouldn’t make this a failure. All of their stretch goals have been effectively crushed (save for the last one that, which has no number attached yet), and I’m sure fans will be more than happy that their leatherbound editions are secure.
