I would like to nominate Michael Sullivan. He has written a 6-book fantasy series: The Riyria Revelations all six were completed before the first one was released and while self-contained there are threads that run from one to another.

Book One: The Crown Conspiracy (October 2008)
Royce Melborn, a skilled thief, and his mercenary partner, Hadrian Blackwater make a profitable living carrying out dangerous assignments for conspiring nobles until they become the unwitting scapegoats in a plot to murder the king. Sentenced to death, they have only one way out…and so begins this epic tale of treachery and adventure, sword fighting and magic, myth and legend. The writing style focuses on characters and plot rather than verbose world building. This first book of the Riyria Revelations is a heroic adventure written for adult readers yet suitable for those 13 and older.

Book Two: Avempartha (April 2009)
When a destitute young woman hires Royce and Hadrian to help save her remote village plagued by nocturnal attacks, the two find themselves once more drawn into the schemes of the wizard Esrahaddon. Each night brings death, and each day Royce struggles to breech the secrets of an ancient elven tower as Hadrian tries to help the people of the village defend themselves against the unseen killer. Once more, what began as the simple theft of a sword has placed the two thieves at the center of a firestorm whose outcome could change the world.

"The Crown Conspiracy is great fun and a romp end to end...Highly recommended and another positive surprise for 2008." — Fantasy Book Critic

"A fast paced and riveting fantasy, "The Crown Conspiracy" is well worth reading." — Midwest Book Review

"From the first chapter to the last, the plot twisted and turned in unexpected directions. It takes a great writer to weave a tale that surprises me, that keeps me in suspense, that keeps me reading late into the night and Michael J. Sullivan is a great writer." — Dee Marie, author: The Sons of Avalon

"The Crown Conspiracy was a page turning delight. Each character was intricately constructed so that an air of realism surrounded them. The twists and turns of the novel freed it from predictability and that in itself is refreshing these days. Sullivan is a master story teller" — Violette L. Reid, author: The First Chronicle of Zayashariya: Out of Night
