News: Skysworn and OKAK
No surprise, but the question I've been asked the most over the last few weeks is "Which one are you writing next, Cradle or Elder Empire?"
And the answer is, it depends!
I wrote the first portion of Skysworn while writing Blackflame, as well as about 70,000 extra words of Blackflame. If I can still use the chapters I've written for SS and repurpose some of the extra scenes from BF, then I'm almost done with Skysworn already.
If that's true, then Cradle's next, and I'll be done with it soon. Because it won't impact OKAK much.
If I keep working on it over the next couple of weeks and I find that I don't have most of Skysworn done already, then I'm writing Of Kings and Killers next.
Whether Skysworn is coming out soon or not, I'm aiming for an Elder Empire release around Christmas / New Year's.

Sounds like it's time to throw up a Skysworn progress bar :D
6/22/2017 10:24:49 pm
Yup.....that seems like the right thing to do...YAY!!!!! I can get my fix of cradle in a couple of months! Appreciate the quickness of the work sir!.....question though......
6/28/2017 09:17:12 am
I'm sorry, Sir. What you meant to say was: Please give him a turtle shell so he can be a teenage martial madra turtle. I'm pretty sure that's what you meant.
6/21/2017 11:35:35 am
so either Skysworn in about 2 months and OKAK in about 5 months or just OKAK in about 5 months??
6/21/2017 11:38:26 am
I love how fast you get these books out. Which ever it ends up, even 5 months to the next release is awesome!
6/22/2017 06:27:29 am
And this is why you are the only author I buy your books on kindle after reading it on unlimited!
6/21/2017 11:40:09 am
I thought we would get a little more substance than what you had posted in comments... oh well. Let us know, mkay?
6/21/2017 11:43:01 am
This is FANTASTIC NEWS!!! I love both series, actually was just rereading all my highlighted passages for Elder Empire and I have to say that is by far your funniest series.
6/21/2017 03:01:55 pm
Did you notice the "Wanderer" quotes in EE? Valin?? Maybe??
6/23/2017 06:38:45 am
I had speculated that all of the book series could be connected. House of Blades specifically allows for an universe before or at least formed from pieces of other universes. It makes sense that the power that the magic comes from could be the Way or the Void, most likely the Void. Cradle and Blackflame do go into the multiple worlds, so it is possible that House of Blades is one iteration or worlds that crashed together and were reformed in the Void.
6/23/2017 08:40:57 am
All of Wills universes are connected he has told us this before in previous threads! House of Blades takes place in an Iteration called Amalgam and EE is actually mentioned briefly at the end of Blackflame (Asylum).

Just know that my bank account is ready for you to make the withdrawal as soon as we get the goods!
6/21/2017 12:07:56 pm
A potentialdouble Will Wight release? This is a good day.
6/21/2017 12:09:26 pm
Skysworn FUCK YE BOIIII
6/21/2017 12:58:36 pm
FUCK YO BOIIII
6/21/2017 01:00:39 pm
NEGA-ALEX WHY AREN'T YOU PLAYING FOOTBALL!!?
6/21/2017 12:59:50 pm
Hehe... I knew that something fishy was going on :D
7/1/2017 02:13:44 pm
Then I have given you way too much power at this point...
6/21/2017 01:02:22 pm
I posted this question in a previous post but thought I'd do so again on the latest, but didn't you say in a previous blog post thread that December is often your worst time to do a release and that it's better in January or February? I wonder if you should give yourself that extra month or so to finish up Skysworn, and then plan on OKAK release for late January-ish?
6/21/2017 03:39:57 pm
Im hoping for Skysworn really soon. I likes Shera's side of Elder Empire, but i felt that EE doesn't have as much re-read value as Cradle or Travelers Gate.
6/21/2017 03:40:13 pm
Crossing my fingers for some luck so that skysworn gets done first. I need a cradle fix!!!!!
6/30/2017 11:59:12 am
Really?? Details, details!! :-)
6/21/2017 04:02:40 pm
It will be a Christmas miracle! I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for the last set of Elder Empire books. I love reading both POV and have been slightly boycotting you because you haven't finished them yet. I told my husband I wasn't starting your new series until you finished Elder Empire. He says I'm missing out, but I'm staying strong. (ok, I did read the first chapter of Cradle the other day, but I will not let it pull me in! For Calder and Shera!)
6/21/2017 04:44:17 pm
Why don't you put up a poll to see people want, I mean what would make more money ;)
6/21/2017 05:22:42 pm
How do we know this post wasn't written by Nega-Will. He could be impersonating the real Will and misleading all of Wills fans.
6/21/2017 07:41:58 pm
That does sound like something he would do...
6/21/2017 07:42:49 pm
Stick to what makes you happiest. Even though EE is my 3rd favourite of your series I still love it. EE is still better than 99% of what's out there. Can't wait for whatever you release!
6/22/2017 08:02:42 am
This one thanks you humbly and is ready for Skysworn next
6/22/2017 10:06:22 pm
I put the second book down, because I really didn't have time for kindle books. I am more of an Audible person. I had the book on unlimited for a long time, so I decided to finally read it and return it. Loved it and bought the third book and worked through Blackflame in a few days.
6/30/2017 11:55:06 am
It is cool. Usually I go into withdraw after I finish a book. I need my fix man! After a few weeks, I am past the withdrawal and forget about the series until the next book comes out.
6/22/2017 10:41:39 pm
Man!!!!! My fix is being made!!........I haven't read the EE series yet.....just Cradle and Traveler Hate books. Love those sir!!
6/23/2017 02:52:14 pm
I strongly suspect that the Aurelius detection abilities are actually tapping into the Way. It is probably why Suriel is familiar with the Aurelius family ancestors. Such natural ability probably produced Abidan in the past, most likely Spiders. Also would explain why Ozriel might be tracking Eithan.
>Traveler Hate books
7/1/2017 09:26:24 am
Here I was hoping that Ozriel might be that famed Arelius Patriarch.
6/23/2017 12:39:54 am
I've reread this book more than any other book in my lifeeeeeee!!!! (Granted I'm only 16) But I consider myself an avid reader who knows which authors deserves to be appreciated and showered with praise (Trust me I'd rather read an enticing book like yours than hang out with friends).And you!!! My good sir are one of the very few... use it wisely...
6/23/2017 07:00:24 am
I don't remember blackflame mentioning the ancestor bit for why the Aerulius family has a bloodline trait, where did you get that info?
6/27/2017 04:51:10 pm
In Blackflame, it says that the patriarch was the one who created the library of information. This likely means that he left other powers behind through his bloodline. Also, it is said only blood Arelius have these abilities, and the one who has been shown to give gifts to his descendants is most likely.
6/23/2017 07:01:25 am
Just saw you said you assuming
6/23/2017 07:01:04 am
Hey will loved blackflame, but I'm wondering when the next audio book version for one of your books is coming out. I got the first two travelers gate and am still waiting for more. Of any series on audio.
6/25/2017 11:18:51 pm
Skysworn! Skysworn! Skysworn! Skysworn! Skysworn! Skysworn!
7/3/2017 06:40:05 am
Will: I know exactly what the poll would say. So I say, screw the poll! Defy destiny! ROW ROW, FIGHT THE POWAH
7/26/2017 02:29:55 am
