The Reaper comes soon...
The pre-order for Reaper is still up, but soon it will have fulfilled its purpose, as November 2nd is right around the corner. For some, it is already here...
For you Australians and "Australians" who already have the book, please don't spoil anything for people living in the past! Please don't ruin their fun before I do.
Tonight at 9 PM Florida Time, I'll be doing my traditional launch stream on my Twitch channel! Tune in to hear me answer fan-submitted questions (not about Reaper, because spoilers) and watch me run around in circles in some video game!
I'm not sure what I'll be playing, but probably something that rhymes with Flubrottica, Plateau Hero.
I always get unbelievably nervous before a book release. People tend to make fun of me for it, since I know I'm going to sell a lot of books, but it's not book sales I'm worried about. I want people to enjoy the books.
So waiting for a book release always feels like waiting to see if you're going to get the death penalty.
Trust me; I've been in both situations a lot.
P.S. Since people are already reading the book, if you don't want to be spoiled, stay out of fan communities until you're done reading!
Especially if the thread is marked as a spoiler. Common sense, people.

I’m so damn excited I’m just praying it comes out 9 pm pacific time ^_^ and I PRAY the audiobook comes out then too

It is always 3 am eastern. 🥺 The 3-hour wait is always one of the great dilemmas when a book comes out and the audiobook comes out the same day. Do I read ahead while I wait or do I wait until 3:00 and start with Travis. 😭

Just submitted a PTO request for tomorrow…there shall be no sleep till Brook…Reaper!
11/1/2021 10:46:25 am
I almost always take a couple of days off to truly enjoy your book. It's cold as the Frozen Blade Sect in Colorado right now, I'll be snuggled up by the fire enjoying the sh!t out of Reaper tomorrow.
11/1/2021 10:51:37 am
I just wish it wasn't coming out on an election day. I have to supervise a polling location all freaking day. There will be no opportunity to look at this until 10pm tomorrow. I need to know about the Sext of Twin Stars!
11/1/2021 10:53:06 am
Oh, autocorrect. Really? Sext of Twin Stars?
11/1/2021 12:05:06 pm
Sext of twin stars is now cannon 😆
11/1/2021 02:18:59 pm
WILL QUICK! You need to add another blooper with this premise!
11/1/2021 11:14:46 am
I am looking forward to it. I finished binging your series all last month and I haven't had this much fun reading a series since I binged Stormlight by Sanderson or Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series.
11/1/2021 12:03:35 pm
Thank you yet again, can't wait to read it!
11/1/2021 03:06:04 pm
Yep Reaper is out in Australia :). I woke up at 1am and had to start reading, until I couldn't stay awake any longer (damn my human frailties). Seriously considered taking the day of work to read. Loving it. Thanks Will!
11/1/2021 03:23:40 pm
Appreciate you and this series so much. It has filled a dull fiction void in my life and gives me something to look forward to. See you on twitch.
11/1/2021 03:30:08 pm
A coworker got me onto this series a couple of years ago and now it has become one that I anxiously await every new book release! My wife has already forbidden me from turning on my Kindle tonight as she KNOWS that if I start reading it... I won't stop and have to work in the morning.
11/1/2021 03:55:29 pm
Spent two hours downloading a VPN, switching my amazon account to Australia, attempting to buy the book 4x, only for amazon to cancel my "aMeRiCaN" kindle subscription and ask me to purchase a new Australian kindle subscription and still don't have the book. My advice: scream into a pillow until sometime in the AM when Americans get the book
11/1/2021 05:36:30 pm
This isn't fair, Will, I live in Alaska and literally the only people who get the book after me are Hawaiians. That's only because Alaska made themselves all one timezone. I'm literally 50 miles from tomorrow. If I boat over that date line the Russians will shoot me but I'll have Reaper... worth it!
11/3/2021 10:56:33 am
For future reference you can use a free vpn to change where you are located on your phone to be at a eastern time zone location then you can get it at the earliest time. Also you can change it to other countries to see movies available there but not available in America on video apps like netflix. Although I don't do that myself, I do not think its illegal so yeah.

Really enjoyed parts where Lindon was soulforging. At higher achievement he should be able to make more interesting stuff like those gate stones and personal storage. Wish the books covered more of that process. Seriously, if he spent half the book looking/crafting things, id enjoy it.
11/2/2021 01:25:09 am
I want to see more about the sect of twin stars, especially now that... well. Spoilers.
11/1/2021 09:14:41 pm
It has ARRIVED! Now to begin the reading
11/2/2021 12:59:25 am
Listening now! It’s slow going though as I am forced to stop every ten minutes so to dance and giggle in glee.
11/2/2021 01:23:51 am
Next book when please
11/2/2021 02:27:51 am
First, I would like to say that I couldn't ask for a better birthday gift on Novemeber 2nd (just to be clear) than to emerse myself in one of your worlds. Second, I read alot, like I had to get Kindle subscription or I would twitch with nothing to read. With that being said your ability to tell so many different stories and produce great content, keeping it all straight baffles me.
11/2/2021 02:30:24 am
To be clear, I have subscription and still buy every book you publish. I use the subscription to wait for the next one 😆
11/2/2021 05:56:31 am
Finished the Book, amazing!
11/2/2021 10:28:12 am
Please, please, do not let the conversation between... someone... and Malice where someone is incredibly frantic about sponsoring Mercy's incredibly rapid advancement to Monarch but doesn't want Malice to know why happen between books.
11/2/2021 11:11:39 am
Loved it! Now I need the next book lol.
11/2/2021 01:30:45 pm
That was the possibility I thought I would dislike the most, but goddamn if you didn’t sell me on it. Hats off to you Will you made it work.
11/2/2021 03:08:26 pm
I stayed up until 3am for the release and didn’t finish the book until almost 6. I’m now operating on 4 hours of sleep but it was 100% worth it!
11/2/2021 04:33:18 pm
So. When’s the next book out? :)
11/2/2021 05:11:35 pm
Finished it yesterday but was too tired to post.
11/2/2021 11:36:14 pm
I'm not certain, but I think being #1 on "Amazon's Best Seller - Paid" list is a good thing, right?
11/3/2021 03:43:19 am
Fantastic book, Will!!! I savored every word and Reaper most certainly taking a spot in the top 5 of all your books!
11/3/2021 05:49:46 am
PLEASE FINISH THE NEXT BOOK BY TOMORROW
11/3/2021 06:25:34 am
So good. Top three for sure. I loved the character development, the world building, the amazing twists, and how you brought heaven and earth together in this one. Thank you, it was such a joy to read. I have never been more thankful for how prolific you are!

When is book 11 out I can’t wait for the next one already.
11/3/2021 09:36:56 am
AMAZING! So glad the paperback version is out now!
11/3/2021 09:39:35 am
P.S. Some one needs to slap Lindon's Dad....
11/3/2021 01:16:52 pm
Ehhh. Is it weird that I kind of get where he's coming from, given his background?
11/3/2021 11:52:29 am
Thank you for a thrilling and thoroughly entertaining book Will! Been looking forward to this release for months and it certainly did not disappoint! Never read anything as fast :D
11/3/2021 01:02:17 pm
My partner and I found your series while doing a road trip across country a while back (I think book 5 was the latest one back then). We've been big fans ever since. You mentioned being worried that people enjoyed it, so just wanted to let you know you have two very happy fans over here.
11/3/2021 03:08:09 pm
Reaper was EXCELLENT. Possibly number 1, certainly number 2 in the entire series right now! I can't wait for Dreadgod... speaking of which, when will it release? :D
11/3/2021 07:00:20 pm
Will, amazing book, loved every bit of it! Thank you for sharing your worlds with us!
11/4/2021 11:01:53 am
By far Reaper is the BEST BOOK EVER... Really was enjoyable through the whole experience. Will, I salute you.
11/4/2021 11:32:27 am
The thing that impresses me most about Will, as demonstrated in this book, is his patience to develop these twists over 10 books. It would be so tempting to slip them in early, but he strings it out and the series is better for it. Kudos!
11/5/2021 07:21:02 am
I agree the other James, now we just gotta wait till we see the soulsmith how sits on a throne of burning skulls. Also the ending, I read so much that I can guess whats going to happen sometimes, but I didn't see that coming, I thought it was awsome.
11/4/2021 01:04:53 pm
11/4/2021 02:01:31 pm
Well, that explained a lot. Looking forward to the next book, of course.
11/5/2021 03:16:45 pm
11/5/2021 09:03:30 pm
Probably my top one or two favorites of your books so far. Great job.
