Nothing against OKAK, but Cradle is the one I'm eagerly awaiting!
4/18/2020 04:32:40 pm
Hell YEAH!!! Is Travis Baldree going to narrate them on audible and if so when shall they be out?
4/19/2020 11:54:32 am
It's about time!
4/18/2020 04:33:30 pm
I just squealed. That is very unusual for me. You sir, have caused this. I hold you completely responsible.
4/18/2020 04:35:24 pm
More seriously, I know these books have been a challenge for you, but hopefully you have enjoyed the process. I know I will enjoy the result!
4/18/2020 04:39:30 pm
Congratulations Will! I'm super excited. Now to squeeze in another re-read of the last 4.

This comeplely non eventful report brought to you by the letter q
4/18/2020 05:06:46 pm
Thank you Will, you have no idea well actually you probably do lol how long I've waited to read those words!
4/19/2020 06:16:02 pm
I'm guessing about the same as me...
4/18/2020 05:12:53 pm
That's awesome will, looking forward to reading them both!! Thank you for the world's you bring us!

Congratulations. To me that is. I've been patiently waiting for these books for 5 (?) years. I've been listening to the audio over and over waiting for the next ones to be published. I absolutely love this series and the concept behind it. I suspect that these will be the last books in the series, due to the rise of Cradle (which I also love). But these were the first books Will wrote, that I was absolutely smitten with. It made me go back and re read traveler's gate, which I didn't like at first. Anyway congrats, to Will this time, and good luck in future endeavors.

These are the last books in the EE series, Will likes his trilogies. Also TG was his first series not EE just thought I'd point that out.
4/18/2020 07:15:59 pm
Congrats, Will! I'm looking forward to reading them.
4/18/2020 07:38:51 pm
Hell yeah! I'm really happy for you! I cannot wait to rad the last two books! Good job.

Awesome news! I am looking forward to these books!
4/18/2020 10:06:59 pm
I have 3 words for you Will. “Cradle”

You have now earned exactly two days off. One for each book.

I have a sneaking suspicion that part of the reason finishing OKAK took so long is that they went through oh so many numerous rewrites and probably even changes in concept or follow through. I have a sneaking suspicion they went through such because you, Will, were trying to figure out the best way to intertwine the world's together and that maybe the world OKAK ends in is chronologically related to other works you've been putting out. Cradle things mayhaps. Perhaps the prison iteration isn't going to remain as sealed away as it should. After all we only finally got confirmation of another class 1 fiend in the most recent Cradle book, it's possible things are about to go to hell in a serious way in this grand universe you've been writing for us and the only way it made sense would be for all the players we needed to be introduced organically. Just a theory. Care to comment Will?
4/19/2020 11:34:38 am
I have been thinking about this a lot, too. If you look closely, you can find pieces of a puzzle scattered trough these books. Maybe they are random. Or maybe you are right, and it will form a whole. Only time (and Will) can tell...
notice me senpai
4/19/2020 04:12:35 am
does that mean winter is coming? when is winter coming? will we ever find out what happens next in cradle ball z?
4/19/2020 06:43:33 am
Awesome, I love all the worlds so this is just as good for me as any other. Although I wouldn't mind seeing Simon again at some point.
4/19/2020 08:56:04 am
Honestly I feel the same. I just finished Travelers gate for like the 10th time, read all the short stories and need more! Please bring back Simon and gang
4/19/2020 09:54:55 am
Woo! So excited. Now to start re-reading all the elder empire books in preparation.
4/19/2020 09:59:33 am
Oh no! I haven't finished my Cradle reread, and now I have to start rereading OKAK. Best problem ever!

Thanks for the update I look forward to reading the final two novels. I hope that Asylum won't be abandoned after this.

YESSSSSSS!!!!! I feel EE has the most interesting system wills made so far
4/19/2020 02:08:32 pm
Nice, now back to the better series
4/19/2020 03:57:03 pm
I am personally glad. While they are my favorite, that is a tie between Travelers Gate and Cradle, I do like the series and its Lovecraftien horror. Also its implied ties to the Travelers Gate universe since a descritipn of how Elder things get made and then a description of how pieces of destroyed worlds get changed by the void and die eventually unless they attach themselves to a new world really sounds like the Territories of Travelers Gate series. All of which come from destroyed worlds, where changed in the time between that and connecting the the real world of the Travelers Gate series. Plus that one metnion of Valen the wanderere in the little note saying at the beging of a chapter.
4/19/2020 06:02:07 pm
Since so many people are clamoring you devote future writing time to Cradle, with the rest demanding you start working on Traveler's Blade, I want something new.
4/19/2020 08:31:58 pm
Cradle ended on a cliffhanger so Will kinda needs to resolve that sooner rather than later. Once that's done however something new could be viable. Question is would that 'new thing' be completely new or part of a wider universe ala Sandersons's Cosmere.
4/19/2020 09:16:53 pm
So psyched! One of my favorite series of all time. I've read every book at least 3 times. Just finished a new reread last night and I'm so impatient.
4/19/2020 11:17:47 pm
Congratulations! Your Elder Empire series may not be for me but I've always admired the magic system and the ambition of it, so fantastic job on completing this ambition. I know there are many, many readers who have been looking forward to it.

I’m so excited for your latest works.
4/20/2020 07:45:57 am
outstanding -now i can start reading this series (i am still suffering from the patrick rothfuss/kingkiller chronicles syndrome of waiting years and years for closure on a series!) - and this will hopefully fill the time before the next CRADLE books arrive to make us all happy bunnies!
4/20/2020 10:11:50 am
4/20/2020 12:50:12 pm
YES!!! My reread is almost finished, perfect timing!
4/20/2020 02:09:10 pm
This is awesome news!!!!!!!! I am beyond excited to read this!! I'm a huge fan of all your books but EE have always been my favorite.
4/20/2020 06:18:54 pm
nice try, this a late 1st April isnt it? ;)
4/20/2020 08:52:59 pm
Great news! Thank you! Loved Traveler's Gate and grabbed Elder Empire series as soon as I saw it was from you. I've been buying all the Cradle series but have been holding back on reading them until I see the Elder Empire conclusion. At last! :-)
