for Surviving Medieval England
The Frugal Wizard's Handbook for Surviving Medieval England is the title of the second of the secret projects that are being released in 2023. It will be released in April 2023 as part of a Kickstarter Campaign. It is a non-cosmere novel set on a new world.
A man awakes in a clearing in what appears to be medieval England with no memory of who he is, where he came from, or why he is there. Chased by a group from his own time, his sole hope for survival lies in regaining his missing memories, making allies among the locals, and perhaps even trusting in their superstitious boasts. His only help from the “real world” should have been a guidebook entitled The Frugal Wizard’s Handbook for Surviving Medieval England, except his copy exploded during transit. The few fragments he managed to save provide clues to his situation, but can he figure them out in time to survive?

Along with the other secret projects, Brandon wrote The Frugal Wizard's Handbook for Surviving Medieval England in secret, telling no one except his wife, for whom he wrote it as a gift. Since he wasn't doing any touring in 2020, he had more writing time, and he wrote The Frugal Wizard's Handbook for Surviving Medieval England along with three cosmere novels and Super Awesome Danger. He surprised his team with it, along with the other four secret works, in late 2021.
