In just about a week, from September 1st through 4th, DragonCon will be in Atlanta, and I'll be there!
I'm supposed to be on some panels this year, though they still haven't released their schedule, so I'm not sure which panels or when. I'm sure it will be fantasy-related, so if you're going, keep your eye on the Fantasy Literature track.
Also, if you haven't heard, Blackflame and Soulsmith paperbacks are now available on Amazon! I'll have some with me at DragonCon ready to sign, but if you just want the books, they're already available online!
Skysworn news (and potentially OKAK news, although I may have to wait on that) soon, along with a drastic update in the progress meter!

One day I will make it to Dragon Con and see you... or stalk you, or something. I really do owe you (we owe you) dinner at some point. Looks like not this year though
8/25/2017 07:53:04 am
Can't make it but have a buddy going. Hopefully he can find you there.

i will be checking today.

Will the progress meter read complete? Sept 1st is fast approaching and since today is my birthday, it would be a great present to get news that Skysworn is releasing in a week!
8/25/2017 08:51:33 am
Awesome news Will. Hope it's awesome at dragon con.
8/25/2017 08:53:35 am
Thankyou will! This post gives me hope!
8/25/2017 10:24:11 am
Awesome! Looking forward to reading your next book. I hope DragonCon goes well for you.

I'd love to go, but Dragons ARE the number 1 predators of raccoons.
8/25/2017 08:11:00 pm
But think of all the trash cans
Eccentric cash register

That's a bit harsh, Will's books aren't that bad.
8/25/2017 12:34:28 pm
Is the panel going to be recorded for upload to YouTube or anything? I'm sure there are a lot of fans who'd like to see it but...omg D*C is so damn crowded these days if you're there in person.
8/25/2017 01:53:33 pm
It probably is a panel about molecular biology.
8/25/2017 06:33:26 pm
Is the news about skysworn that it's a meticulous film noir style thriller? The various underlords of the blackflame empire gather to track and then take down the counterfeiter that is ruining their economy! Eithan is basically a mob boss.

Wooo, can't wait. Will is there an ETA on the Skysworn cover?
8/25/2017 11:55:03 pm
He actually revealed it on his Facebook page on his birthday!

I'm honestlyshocked to see this post.

I know this isn't pertinent to dragoncon, but I have to ask, since Lindon can inject his pure madra into someone's core via empty palm what's stopping him from doing the same with black fla!eating and essentially destroying their core? I mean Jai long gets hit in stomach no more stellar spear anything and ends up just like his sister maybe worse, duel over.
8/27/2017 02:50:27 pm
Will has said this multiple times. Your spirit has control inside your own body. That's why only pure madra can do an Empty Palm, because pure madra can influence the spirit and ONLY the spirit.

because of what sam stated (plus Lindon's father explains it in the books) this would not work. The only way this could really work is if A: Jai Long was like, Foundation level weak or weaker, or Lindon was way, WAY beyond Jai Long in strength. Obviously, neither of these things are true xD
8/29/2017 04:20:16 am
I agree with Sam and Sage that it is unlikely that an empty palm executed with Blackflame(BF) madra would have a cripling effect on an opponent of the same level. But I think that there could theoretically be techniques that try to hinder or criple the opponent using BF madra injections. Though not targeting the opponents core but their madra channels, because the BFmadra users (both Lindon and the original BF family) have to cleanse their madra channels after use.
Whats stopping him is that Jai Long is a True gold. That makes him faster and stronger tied together with his genius-level skill, he's not going to sit still for Lindon to land a blow easily.

Hoping beyond reason that the "drastic update in the progress meter" is "complete" or "truegold" or whatever you use to mark it as complete

The first of the month falls on the Friday this week. If (a big if) Skysworn comes out then, is a Friday release in any way detrimental to sales? Is there an optimum day for a book release or is the first of the month regardless of the day of the week the best option for amazon statistics?
8/28/2017 07:36:42 pm
I looked it up and turns out that in general the best days to release a book is at the end of the week. I'm not sure if this answers your question, but I thought it might help.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday

In one post by will, he stated that he would release something on the 1st of September. However, in a similar request for an August birthday, this did not happen. In addition, he has stated that he enjoys the practice of releasing on the 1st of a month. This, combined with the fact that the 1st is on Friday, and so is one of the best book release dates, and the fact that Skysworn has already had the cover released and is upcoming, leads me to believe Skysworn will be released on the 1st of Septemeber, 2017.

You jinxed it man...
8/29/2017 11:12:02 am
I'm guessing (purely a guess) that we'll see a Cradle short story out Sep 1st, Skysworn on Oct 1st, an EE short story on Dec 1st, and OKAK on Jan 1st.
8/29/2017 12:21:12 pm
I agree with Azqa, but a part of me wishes it won't be true
8/29/2017 01:05:43 pm
We all wish that Skysworn will be out this Friday... is it a realistic wish? Probably not. Thanks to everyone for the release info btw, I didn't have the time to go hunting for what Will has said in the past on the subject.
8/30/2017 04:15:37 pm
only one day remaining till its too late for sept release announce. so antsy for news
8/30/2017 04:20:04 pm
I'm not going to lie, I've refreshed this page pretty much every hour that I've been awake today on the off chance that it would update.
8/31/2017 12:32:05 am
