Finally, I can comment again! Some people got comment capability back early, but now it should be working for everyone! Hooray!
And with that small interruption, the news continues!
To celebrate our fifth anniversary of House of Blades, we're now giving away some free wallpapers!
We've got them for your computer or your phone, and technically they're also available for sale as posters if you literally want them to paper your wall at home. Or you can just take the thing that's free.
(By the way, Ghostwater is ready for upload, and I'll be sending it to Amazon tomorrow night. When tomorrow night? That depends...)

Super excited for tomorrow night then. :D I have a friend that bought foundation awhile ago, and I finally got him to pick it back up last night, so hopefully he will read the full series. Those wall papers are cool btw.

That’s in like 12 hours if you live in Kiribati! 🙌🏼
5/30/2018 08:51:57 am
These wallpapers are incredible!
5/30/2018 08:57:27 am
Those are fabulous... wow, you have a good designer!
5/30/2018 09:03:42 am
I keep checking for Ghostwater early, every hour or so. Ha, there may be some history of that pattern. Fingers crossed froa repeat.
5/30/2018 10:08:14 am
I am expecting masterful timing on your part Will. I want you to predict exactly how long it will take Amazon to process Ghostwater so that it comes up at exactly midnight.
5/30/2018 10:08:54 am
Wait, so if I go on Japan's Amazon could I potentially buy the book a day early?
5/30/2018 10:29:45 am
Does the man behind the curtain know exactly when it will be uploaded, and could that man be bribed to reveal that information?
5/30/2018 10:59:32 am
Will, these are sick! I'm just torn between the house of blades and city of light damn You!
5/30/2018 11:35:33 am
Wooo! I just finished reading the first four... Again... Counting down the minutes!
5/30/2018 12:14:41 pm
Is there a general timetable for uploading? Are we talking "stay up hitting refresh" tomorrow night? Or "wake up hella early and read 5 chapters before the kids wake up" kind of time?
5/30/2018 12:33:20 pm
Right. If you insist on posting it tomorrow, then I demand that you travel to the international date line in the pacific, right on the western side of it! Then it will be tomorrow very soon indeed!
5/30/2018 12:57:50 pm
4K(3840x2160) would be nice for wallpaper options :) It's quite common nowadays.
5/31/2018 11:11:41 am
Thanks, we hoped folks would let us know what other sizes they might need. Which one do you want first?
5/31/2018 11:56:30 am
Is it possible to get them in 1920x1200 size for those of us with 16:10 monitors?
5/30/2018 01:38:55 pm
CCom to New Zealand and post it Will. Might not be the very first to see the light of day on Friday, but we are damned close.
5/30/2018 02:45:42 pm
last time I think it hit at about eleven and I was up until 3 reading it
5/30/2018 02:56:26 pm
When is tomorrow night for you?
5/30/2018 03:30:10 pm
Tomorrow is so arbitrary... Say you wrote this yesterday, is it live now? is it night? does it need to be dark to be night? What if you live in the arctic circle? will we never see it?
5/30/2018 04:40:53 pm
That depends on what? I'm sure no one will hate you if you hit the publish button a little early
5/30/2018 07:23:08 pm
What time zone is Will in?
5/30/2018 07:29:36 pm
5/30/2018 07:57:40 pm
I'm litterally whooping with excitement! The only thing to decide now is whether i wan't to read it slowly and savor the adventures or tear through it like the animal I am. Great job Will keep up the amazing work!
5/30/2018 08:42:26 pm
anyone know if it's going to be on kindle unlimited right away or not?
5/30/2018 09:38:44 pm
That is my question
5/31/2018 01:35:58 am
I've reread all the books, all the worldbuilding blog posts, I've got a slot waiting in my kindle Unlimited library, and I've got the day off on the 1st (happy coincidence). Come at me Ghostwater I'm ready for you.
5/31/2018 05:39:09 am
It’s 2:38AM in Kiritimati 🧐
5/31/2018 07:22:19 am
Greatness always has a price... in this case my skeep. 1jun in sydney. Amazon.com.au... still no upload. Tears of blood will, tears of blood.
5/31/2018 07:59:32 am
Do you think you sleep more or less than your fans before a release?
5/31/2018 08:19:10 am
morning from sydney at 1:17am still no book press that upload button Will you know you want to......
5/31/2018 09:52:49 pm
Exactly. Plus the wildlife may kill you. Should be some great inspiration for new sacred beasts or elderspawn.
5/31/2018 10:49:56 am
Come on Will. You set the bar last time by releasing it the day prior to what you had planned. How can you lower the bar? You keep raising the bar on writing, so you should do the same on releasing. This time it should have been a surprise 2 day early release.

Love the wall papers. Especially the House of Blades one, which seems to open towards the Lathari Forest (did I spell that wrong?). The Crimson vault one seems to be opened to the palace of Cana, or some random red door because I recall the crimson vaults door had the Old Man's face on it.

This Walrus sounds very wise.
5/31/2018 04:06:46 pm
Love it lmao
5/31/2018 11:42:03 am
It's tomorrow night!!
5/31/2018 12:29:28 pm
The suspense is killing me, I'm reading on the shoulders of titans and stopping every 10 minutes to make sure I haven't missed you releasing it. I know you said evening but I'm hoping it might show up early, no matter how unlikely the chance.

I believe it's in Will's best interest to start sales at the beginning of the month. If he released the book early all of the sales/reads ( for KU) that happened in May would only count for May and impact his standing with amazon's marketing algorithm.Since June would be that much lower.
5/31/2018 04:41:40 pm
Yes, that's right. Lots of people are going to buy it the minute it comes out. It's in Will's best interest to publish June first, even if that means it's a few hours late.

Don't fear the ghostwater
5/31/2018 05:10:33 pm
Will its 1am in the UK hurry up with Ghostwater!!
5/31/2018 05:50:41 pm
Ok, went and purchased the first two books in the series. (Read them on unlimited the first go through) And the crimson vault audiobook. I now have every book in every format available. Finished on the shoulders of giants. I am super super ready. *eyes the merch store
5/31/2018 07:08:35 pm
What territory is the Valinhall gate opening to, I was expecting a sitting room? It looks like what Avernus would look like.
6/1/2018 02:49:35 am
Congrats, Will! Long time fan, I keep trying to get everyone I know hooked on your books as much as I am. Links to free books are definitely going to be helpful in my efforts. And I am so ready for Ghostwater. I'll need the next book tomorrow though since it won't last long.
6/1/2018 08:07:38 am
Took till 0105am on 2nd june for me to purchase.. but nailed it. Im here; about to dive in! But just thought i'd say... yup, its already a no#1 bestseller according to amazon.. hooray marketing! (And im sure your write good engrish also mr wight..) ;)
6/1/2018 01:41:09 pm
Also purchased. I suspect the lack of comments is due to everyone devouring the book. I'm choosing to force myself to savor this one. So I just started re-reading the series yesterday. So it'll be next week sometime before I get to 'Ghostwater'. Looking forward to it. Congrats on 5 years going strong!
