First, the "news!" Most of this is a recap, so please allow me a moment to take you on a tour of the present before we discuss the future...
1.) The Reaper pre-order is still up!
We didn't take it down, because that would have been stupid!
2.) Cradle merchandise is still 10% off!
It's not much, but it's more than 9%!
3.) Voting for the Path contest is live!
I hope that link works and doesn't send you to some crazy document about how to sabotage a hospital or something!
4.) We'll be announcing the winners of the Path contest on my Twitch channel!
We're going to announce the contest winners this Friday at 8 PM Eastern, and you can vote right up until that begins!
Full disclosure: I have not read these Paths...but I will be reading the winning Paths live, so you'll get to see my genuine reactions! My incredibly narrow-minded, judgmental reactions of pure scorn. Tune in!
5.) Also on Twitch, I'll be doing my normal Monday night pre-launch stream from 9 PM to midnight!
If you're Australian (or pretending to be...) and have already read the book prior to that stream, please don't spoil anything for those of us living in the past!
If I have to know what happens without telling anyone, so do you.
6.) REAPER LINES OUT OF CONTEXT!
I've got a couple of lines pulled randomly from the book. I shouldn't be spoiling anything significant here, but if you're particularly spoiler-averse, shield your eyes.
MILD SPOILER WARNING!
Reaper Line 1: “Oh no, I missed something!” Eithan cried. “Quickly, repeat your entire conversation before you forget a word!”
Reaper Line 2: “…she’ll be your opponent.”
Little Blue put hands on her hips and whistled a challenge.
Reaper Line 3: Reigan Shen coughed up blood, which wasn’t as bad a sign as it seemed.

I'm so excited to rea.... listen to reaper. This whole series has been such a joy to discover. Thank goodness for random pick ups because the cover art on audible looked neat and it popped up in my suggested titles pile.
10/27/2021 03:15:04 pm
I came to the series completely because of the cover art on audible too! It’s been all consuming since then, as it’s the first fandom I’ve ever really participated. I’ve been so happy for that 2 for 1 sale.
10/27/2021 08:11:21 pm
Same here, really love this series
10/27/2021 01:28:45 pm
Little Blue vs. Sacred Valley Irons.... GO!

Can you imagine fighting something that small that outclasses you in every way
10/27/2021 05:21:20 pm
It's no less than those twits deserve.
10/27/2021 01:32:43 pm
Anyone here know how to become Australian for the night.
10/27/2021 02:03:59 pm
Convert your account temporarily to make the purchase. You need to put a random Australian address, and then you select it in the content&devices menu.

If I set my Amazon to Australia time will it release at their midnight? I'm trying to find exactly what time it will release so I can start reading immediately, and Amazon says it releases midnight local time but others have said it has happened between 3-5 A.M.
10/27/2021 03:19:10 pm
Haha it is the good life.
10/27/2021 01:39:05 pm
Little Blue vs Jaran.....FIGHT!

Just a heads up to all you wannabe Australians. You can change your Amazon store location. Just saying…

...of Orthos??! You CAD, how could you spoil it.

Thank you, Will. I shall now proceed to put the excerpts in context. Lindon and gang find Shen in the labyrinth. When the Monarch makes to pulverise them, Lindon asks Little Blue to handle the Monarch. Eithan is shocked by the statement and so is Shen, but Blue is eager for the challenge. A moment later we see that Blue's adeptness with a knife is more than Shen could have fathomed.

....and the new lion-skin rug was loved by all.
10/27/2021 07:29:34 pm
In Australia we have a crazy amount of things that want to kill you and massive lockdowns but hey at least we get the cradle series a day earlier. Worth it!
10/27/2021 09:59:19 pm
So Reaper is live in ... 4 days 9 hours, or even sooner for those living closer to the dateline?
10/28/2021 11:10:42 am
Looks like it was, which is sad because I'm really not on Facebook much.
10/28/2021 06:28:14 pm
I guess we could always propose paths here even if they won't count for the contest. That being said I suspect contest entrants were limited to US residents, which many of us aren't. I could be wrong, but international postage is expensive.
10/28/2021 05:35:10 am
So Will, when is the next book coming out?
10/28/2021 08:00:28 pm
Hey Will. Not sure how often you get asked this, and I probably don't know how much I'm asking for here. But would you ever consider doing a paperback of the volume collection? I like the artwork.
10/28/2021 11:50:27 pm
Nope...There are at least a few of us who want a collectors edition of the whole set! >.>
10/29/2021 02:53:16 pm
I love me a paper back collection, great for lending out to friends in need of a good read. There is something to be said for the smell of paper and the feel and weight of a book you love.
10/29/2021 04:43:12 pm
Count me in on wanting (and being willing and able) to pay for full set of hardcover set. However, it makes sense to push for this once all 12 are out. I wouldn’t mind kicking in to a Kickstarter either.
10/30/2021 08:16:31 pm
Definitely would be down for a fancy collectors edition series set!!! Hell yeah!?!?!
10/29/2021 09:49:29 pm
I really hope that little blue challenge lindon dad when she hear him talk bad about lindon that would definitely humble him.
Cool dross tricks

I’m gleefully waiting for him to advance to jade.
