Do You Like Pre-orders?
Because Underlord has one.
Also, through what I'm sure is sheer coincidence, the ebook collection of Cradle #1-3 is 65% off this week!
Push it on people who annoy you!

Preordered, so exciting!
2/9/2019 02:10:32 pm
Already pre-ordered .I remember when I bought house of blades and it had no reviews and like 20 copies sold. Congratulations and I hope you become as big as Brandon Sanderson.
2/9/2019 02:14:13 pm
Im so excited. I pre-ordered as soon as I found out!!!!

I actually bought House of Blades the first month it came out, and I remember thinking "What have I done? I just started the first book in a series by some no name random author. It's probably going to suck and even it it's any good this 'Will Wight' guy will probably disappear long before writing the final book in the series. Best case scenario and the sequel comes out in four years."

I am quite fond of preorders. I have already preordered my copy and I’m glad we got the option this time.
2/9/2019 02:43:42 pm
What about of kings and killers? :'(

The Consultants sent Gardners after it. It got... clipped.

If only it was OKAK
It's a good question, and I'll copy the answer I used in a reddit thread:

Congrats on having assistants to pay! One of the trappings of success .

Look at this man employing people. Going to think he's a clan patriarch soon. Now take my money!

Thanks for the update and explanation!

I only check in occasionally, so I'm not sure when OKAK got replaced with another Cradle book (or at least, Underlord snuck in first), but I'm super happy to hear it. Cradle is definitely my favorite of your series.

Wait, there's a discord server for Will? That's so cool! Any idea where I can find a link?
2/15/2019 06:05:03 am
Somewhere on reddit... It's called a discord of dubious intent, but I can't seem to get an invite link for you... I found it somewhere on reddit atleast
2/9/2019 05:48:22 pm
I like pre-orders. I shall now wait in a trance, until something of note happens on March 1st.

I don’t intend to pre-order when I can get the book for no cost with my kindle unlimited subscription
2/9/2019 07:30:34 pm
If you go on to Wills Facebook page Travis (narrator) says he will give us the first chapter but instead he rips out our hearts mercilessly. All we get is a video of him in a squid had.So I ask both Will and Travis: WHY. Why must you be so cruel to your desperate fans? I'm just going to sit in a corner and cry myself to sleep over and over until March finally comes. Then I will read Underlord and take Will hostage so that he may write Cradle books for me until the end of time *cackles evilly*.

There does not seem to be a reason to preorder it since I read on kindle but I did so... not sure why.
2/12/2019 10:34:59 am
If you pre order a book, you will be notified the INSTANT it becomes downloadable and readable. Which isn't always the same thing as midnight on the day it was released, I spent about half an hour growling at Amazon tech support until Words of Radiance finally appeared on my Kindle.
2/9/2019 10:44:32 pm
Hey I'm sorry if this is a little early but, how is progress on the book after underlord.
2/11/2019 07:56:55 am
I’ve got to admit that is either great comedy, asking about the book after underlord, or the begings of the downfall of society! It gave me a chuckle so I’m going with comedy! That’s gold Eric! Gold!

I got a chuckle out of this as well! I can relate; it's hard to wait to see where the Cradle crew will go next, but it never disappoints!
2/21/2019 07:43:11 am
What about Cradle 9? I've been waiting since FOREVER! :D
2/10/2019 01:58:57 am
I have kindle unlimited, I still pre-ordered Underlord. I use my unlimited account to find new authors that I might enjoy. I've enjoyed all of Will's books so I make sure I purchase them all to better support an author I enjoy. If he had to get a second job, the books would come out slower!
2/10/2019 05:48:42 am
I pre-ordered yesterday. When I woke up today the pre-order was gone and I had a confirmation for the box set. Something is up with Amazon.
2/10/2019 05:52:30 am
Went to the link from this post instead of from the email and it seems to be working correctly. I'm not sure if the email link was messed up or if I was so excited about Overlord that I didn't pay attention to what I was buying.
2/10/2019 09:12:10 am
Seriously? #1 Best Seller in Asian Myth & Legend? You didn't even sell any yet!
2/12/2019 11:25:52 pm
Pre-ordered as soon as I could. Can't wait. I was actually just about to comment on the Asian Myth & Legend thing lol. How does Amazon decide which category to put you in?
2/10/2019 11:13:07 am
I don't know why but I really like that cover. It speaks to me... Must be going crazy; oh well I knew the day was coming.
2/22/2019 07:56:33 am
You know they always say never judge a book by its cover.
2/10/2019 02:47:56 pm

18 days. How it is possible, that every day now fell like it has timespace of whole month?
2/18/2019 02:56:32 am
11 days to go! Already re-read all previous books and ... and ... well ... I want the Underlord now. :-)
2/11/2019 06:49:45 am
I hope I can read this one slower than the last one and make it last more than a few hours. I hope I can make this one last a week. Maybe read no more than 1 chapter at a time.
2/22/2019 07:59:19 am
Nope it doesn't really.
2/12/2019 03:29:57 pm
You and I both know that isn't going to happen. We all lack the self-control to not immediately devour the book. Then, when we're done reading we shall collectively look around in a daze thinking 'where's the next one?'
2/14/2019 11:54:09 pm
After the click bait post from Feb 8, I decided it was time to prepare my core for underlord, and began my visit to cradle for the 5th time. Only 7 days have come and gone and all 5 books have been devoured again... I too feel your pain.
2/11/2019 11:23:54 am
FANTASTIC! I have preordered my copy of Underlord already. Having enjoyed the Skysworn audiobook (mr travis baldree doing a fine job, thank you very much) I wonder if he is hard at work on Ghostwater yet?
2/15/2019 06:39:47 am
yay - blackflame now in whispersync, so the whole cradle series (except ghostwater) is now affordibly enjoyable in audio as well as written format!!
2/11/2019 12:00:22 pm
Do you know if the audiobook for Ghostwater will be up before Underlord comes out? I want to listen to the series for my re-read so I remember what's going on before I jump to Underlord.
2/14/2019 04:04:32 pm
It does not seem likely base on the turn around of the last book but I wouldn't be surprised if it is not done and just waiting for audibles review before Underlord is out.
2/11/2019 01:22:39 pm
Well, how was Hamilton?

Hi, Will. Here’s a completely random question that just occurred to me as I was reading people’s comments, although it really has nothing to do with them at all.

why isn't your comment in blue like "your" comments usually are? are you the real will? the games afoot!

2/11/2019 04:20:47 pm
I think preorders all depend on how much people like the book. I read kindle, and have unlimited, but I love the books you write so I preordered. Can you say how many preorders have come through?
2/11/2019 08:36:19 pm
I'd like to take the Ozriel pre-order option, which includes all the future books.
2/22/2019 08:08:33 am
Ah look into the WAY my friend
2/12/2019 02:26:20 am
Pre-ordered. Read everything you sold. Keep 'em coming!
2/12/2019 11:00:55 am
Yeah great but when's my next oreo review, huh!? This is completely unacceptable!
2/12/2019 05:40:02 pm
I like pre-order for books I know I will be buying.
Yeah, finally! My assistant has been on the phone with Amazon every weekday since right after Blackflame came out, and it has taken FOREVER for her to get Amazon to move Whispersync forward. And Skysworn was linked almost immediately -_-
2/20/2019 11:11:37 am
ghostwater has now joined its brethren in my audible corral - yippee
2/12/2019 05:49:31 pm
Pre-ordered, ive been following you sense house of blades and own all your kindle books, i have all of your audible books but crimson vault and wanted to ask a question... are we going to get a time jump in underlord? or are we gunna get more fast paced advancement thru challenge? I would love to know what happens just after ghostwater with the fall out from their "trainers"
2/15/2019 03:16:42 pm
Based on the page of Underlord that Will updated we get to see the aftermath of Ghostwater. I don't have the link to it but it's on his Facebook page. It's the Monkey one.
2/12/2019 10:58:49 pm
Im gonna preorder it for both my US and Australian accounts. I started an account in Australia because last book, Ghostwater, it came out first in Australia. LoL.
2/21/2019 04:33:09 am
Hahaha good stuff ;)
2/13/2019 01:52:21 pm
I love pre-orders! Why? Because now I have the book safely locked into the Kindle delivery system and if I for some reason don't make it back to the authors website for however long...I still get a surprise one Tuesday evening after midnight! Hip Hip Hooray!
2/22/2019 08:12:53 am
U know u think it would be a joy if the book got released before the time but all u can fell is the crushing feeling that u could have been reading it already if u had checked the author's site more frequently.
2/13/2019 05:20:44 pm
Random possible spoiler question.
2/14/2019 04:53:15 pm
Really excited for the next book Will! I'm re-reading Ghostwater right now in preparation.
2/15/2019 09:52:12 pm
Am I the only one who wants more travelers gate references like in the bloopers for Ghostwalker except actually part of the story?
2/15/2019 11:09:01 pm
Not that I'm bored with what you're doing cuz I'm not, but are you considering any new stories at this point?
2/19/2019 09:12:57 am
Don't listen!!! Don't do it! That's one of my biggest beefs with Brandon Sanderson these days; he keeps getting distracted with new writing ideas that, while enjoyable, continuously diminish our chances of ever finishing the series he already started. At his current pace, words of Radiance (all 10 books) won't be finished for something like 30 years, and that's IF he sticks it out
2/16/2019 01:52:20 pm
Will! Do you know if the audiobook for ghostwater will be up before underlord? Im listening to the audiobooks for my re-read.
2/17/2019 05:15:19 pm
Hey, Will. I've recently sogned up for your mailing list, but I haven't received the compilation of short stories yet. Could you please send them to me?
2/18/2019 02:03:16 pm
Try going in under say hello and sending him a message
2/18/2019 06:27:47 pm
There is a link floating around on the subreddit. You might get it faster there.
2/18/2019 06:29:45 pm
The Ghostwater audiobook just went up for sale. You can buy it now if anybody is looking for it.
2/20/2019 06:45:33 am
10 days... almost to single digits
2/20/2019 12:23:55 pm
Awesome!!! Looking forward to it! :)
2/20/2019 01:39:20 pm
I've been meaning to ask this since the first book and I thought of it more after reading Chinese xanxia novels, how long do sacred artist cultivators live depending on their levels?
2/20/2019 04:05:48 pm
This is left a bit vague, but it depends on a host of factors from my perspective. It seems like Sages age super slowly, while Heralds are ageless alongside Monarchs. On the other had it seems to depend on the life aura in your body, going up a stage naturally strengthens that life aura. There are other ways to augment your life aura like elixers such as the one Lindon and Orthos used.
2/22/2019 08:24:13 am
From what I gather
2/24/2019 08:04:43 pm
I think you misunderstood what I meant, I mean Jai Daishou would have undergone a similar transformation to Orthos reverse aging.
2/24/2019 08:19:10 pm
2/21/2019 10:16:05 am
One question I can't stop thinking about it since reading Ghost Water for the 3rd time. Since Lindon has two cores advancing to Underlord, and it was stated by Harmony in Ghost Water that advancement to Underlord required a spark of Soulfire to reforge the body and soul. Would Lindon need a spark for both cores and therefore forge himself to a higher degree than the average Underlord or would it act the same way as advancing to iron where multiple advancements don't stack. In black flame during the battle between the Jai Underlord and Ethan, it was said that Ethan forged his broom to a level the Jai Underlord couldn't imagine because of the amount of Soulfire and power Ethan was channelling into it. That makes me think that the more Soulfire used to advance the stronger the out come.
2/21/2019 10:44:30 am
As I imagine it, the soul (with its soulfire and soule space) is different from the core. You can combine soulfire with the spirit power but it can be used on itself... but that is just my imagination.
2/21/2019 12:32:45 pm
I believe you are correct in that.
2/22/2019 05:19:30 am
My gut feeling is to say "of course having more soul fire is going to lead to a better advancement". Just as having a larger, purer, and more condensed core leads to a more solid advancement from copper through to Truegold. However, the truth of the matter is, even though we have the knowledge of what to do for 2 of the 3 phases you must go through to reach Underlord; we have no idea how those process's actually work. We don't know how you open a soul space or how you weave soulfire, or even what the third phase entails beyond a new body and soul being "forged". Sadly there is so little information it is hard for me to even give speculation beyond, "the more you have of something (soulfire in this case) and the purer it is generally means stronger advancement in wuxia."
2/22/2019 07:30:12 am
See it's not exactly the amt of soul flame available , but rather the amt the newly advanced true gold's (now underlord) body can bear in the weaving/refining of the body.
2/22/2019 07:40:22 am
Ethan used a ridiculous amt of soulfire on the broom as he said he believes in making instead of storing soul fire. Most likely due to his heavenly wheel technique , like a sheet of paper may tear due to a pen but a book won't.
