How many books has Brandon Sanderson written until May 2023?

Nobody can write as or write as much as Brandon Sanderson. On top of being a great writer, this guy has also managed to be nice and wholesome.

Usually, authors are not good at marketing themselves; if they are very good at it, they try to market in every way possible. But not our Brandon Sanderson.

He has uploaded a free lecture series on YouTube for aspiring authors so that they can learn how to write better, and it actually has concrete ideas. Along with his few friends (Dan Wells, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Howard Tayler) have created a podcast called Writing Excuses that is also very helpful to other writers.

Sanderson is found to be a very noble man and the best part about him is that he is a compulsive writer. This means that he keeps writing and churns out new books every couple of months. Very considerate of him because all the fans can’t wait for his next book. He has also kept us all up-to-date on his progress by having a progress bar on his website.
