Worth every penny. I’ve been a fan of the Elder Empire since you it’s released it - looking forward to the next!
Worth every penny! I would be proud to have that on my bookshelf.
You have a really good artist
Yes! More characters facing away. My favorite pose. Keep your facial features away from me.
No, damn it Darknorth! Get OUT! The is a positive discussion thread! And no crumbling true soul Autarch level creatures are allowed here either!
Sorry that sounded like sarcasm, but it was actually me being very positive.
Or maybe this is me being sarcastic about being sarcastic. You can't sense my intonations via writing. Sarcasception.
I like the sky octopus. Very spooky. And the character's still very assassin-esque without wearing monotone black, which is always a plus.
I haven't been checking the blog regularly; clearly I am missing important items. I think this is my favorite of all your covers so far.
Nice cover and I also like it more than the original one, mainly because it is more like a landscape than a portrait. By the way any ETA on the next set of covers or/and the City of light audiobook.
Wow! That looks amazing!!
Wait a minute. So Will is catching up with emails...
This means I can email Will, and he will respond within a few months!?!?
This is a game changer. I figured Will would be at least a year or two behind on emails. I emailed Sanderson back in 2009 and I'm still waiting on the reply.
Speaking of Sanderson, did you know he's getting a board game made for the Reckoners!
It's only been up for two days and it's already been more than fully funded.
Will you should do something like this!!!
I emailed Sanderson once to please focus on one series to completion before I die of old age. He jumps from one project to inventing a new project like an adhd kid on meth.
I love those swirly clouds, they remind me of Van Gogh.
Wait a second, those are tentacles.
Beautiful, just beautiful.
Keep up the great work, Will. I'm excited for what comes next.
This is so cool, but I have a question - when you relaunch the Elder Empire series will those of us who bought the books the first time on kindle have to buy them again or will they be updated automatically ??
You'll be able to get the updates for free as long as Will uses the same product listing (I don't see why he wouldn't).
It might not be automatic. This really depends on Amazon's algorithm. There's actually no button for Will to press that says "Send Update". All he can do is update the product in Amazon's servers and hope Amazon does their thing the right way.
With minor updates, Amazon usually won't send out automatic updates.
With major updates however (A certain critical percentage of content in the book has changed, causing Amazon's algorithm's to flag it as a major change) will cause Amazon to do *something*. This something usually comes in the form of an email saying that an updated version of a book you own is now available.
Unfortunately, that something won't be an automatic update unless you've gone to your "Manage your content and Devices" page on Amazon and clicked the little button that activates the ability to update.
At least this is how it worked last time I experimented with updates. KDP is infamous for having no instruction manual (Or outdated help pages) and working differently every time you try to do something.
TLDR; Yes updates are free, but they're not always automatic.
Hey Will, have you ever thought about putting one of your books into one of the Humble Bundle SF & F book bundles?
What are the tentacles? As in, to what creature do they belong?
I haven't read the Elder Empire, but this cover has both a female character and tentacles in the same image.
If my experience is anything to go by, I know that this is my kind of book.
LOL good lord.
Sorry to use your blog for my own Dao, Will, but I must recommend to anyone who likes the cradle series, the following books
I Shall Seal the Heavens
A Will Eternal
These books can all be found at Wuxiaworld.com, and are amazing! Come and join me, fellow Daoists!
Also, I have a blog discussion on A Will Eternal in the Wuxia world forums, find me there for more novel discussions!
Ah, a fellow Daoist.
I must reference you to a post Daoist Will Wight made a while back about this subject. Any who are interested should check out his recommendations if they haven't already.
Haha, fellow Daoist, thank you for the enlightenment!
Now, I must ask you if you have seen any powerful Sithe weapons lying around anywhere!
Also, that was several years ago, and this might serve as a reminder to fellow Daoists who have become immoral!
Hey Will I've been wondering do you get Presidents day off or nah?
