It's all in Amazon's hands, now.
By this time, most of you know the drill: the book will show up on the Kindle Store sometime in the next 4-12 hours. It won't show up on my Amazon author page at first, but will instead appear when you search "City of Light," or "City of Light, Will Wight."
First person to find a working link to the page, please let the rest of us know, and I'll re-post the link through all the media at my disposal.
As always, it's been a pleasure.
Hello, ladies and gentlemen! I come before you this afternoon to address the most common question I am asked every day:
"When, sir, will you release City of Light unto us?" (It's usually phrased exactly like that)
The short answer is I don't know.
The useful answer is "PROBABLY between March 30th and April 10th," because on April 10th I'll be leaving for PAX East in Boston, Massachusetts.
And now that I've gotten those more helpful responses out of the way, hit the jump for a longer answer:
I know I've been pretty quiet over the past few months, and that's because I'm working hard to release City of Light before the end of this month. As soon as I have a more definite date, I'll give it to you.
But I haven't been a good host recently, and I feel like I have to make it up to you. Therefore, here's a scene from the early part of City of Light.
I'm not sure where exactly this scene will end up in the final version of CoL--I still have some decisions to make regarding how the book's introduction is structured. But I suspect this will make up part of Chapter 1 or Chapter 2.
(I haven't edited this scene much, so it's still a little rough. If you happen to notice a typo or two, please let me know and I'll fix it ASAP.)

You may have noticed that I've been silent for a while, but trust me when I say that's a good thing. I'm running up against my personal deadline for City of Light, so I'm writing like a fiend. I want to make sure you have something to read after you finish Brandon Sanderson's Words of Radiance.
If you haven't started re-reading The Way of Kings, you should soon. Just to prepare. If you haven't read The Way of Kings...you should.
Anyway, City of Light, out as soon as I can get it to you. It's looking like mid-to-late March, but I'll keep you apprised.
I'm writing fight scenes right now. So many fight scenes. And a death scene, but I skipped over that one, because I'll need to come back and write it later to give it all of my attention.
