Here, for the first time, I reveal to you the cover of Cradle 7: Uncrowned. Take a moment, scroll down, and bask in its glory. Bask, I say!
Once you're done basking, scroll back up, because I have news.
This coming Thursday, September 5th, the Uncrowned ebook will be available for pre-order! (We're hoping to have the audio version releasing at the same time as the ebook, but audio pre-orders are weird, so it won't go up for pre-order at the same time.)
To celebrate this launch and of course DragonCon (which is where I currently am, by the way), there's a sale for 10% off all Cradle merchandise now through September 7th! Grab that Orthos T-shirt you didn't know you needed in your life!
Is that enough? No, it isn't. So Cradle: Foundation will also be going on sale for free tonight for five days! Let the sky rain Cradle!
...and you'll notice that there's one key piece of information left out of this blog: how long is the pre-order? When will the book actually be released!
Good question! Find out soon!

The cover is super awesome!! I am pumped for the book.
8/31/2019 11:44:42 am
I feel the need. The need to read.
8/31/2019 11:44:42 am
Everyone: Will you be preordering Uncrowned?
8/31/2019 03:38:04 pm
10 - 4 good buddy
9/1/2019 03:49:28 pm
That's a Texas-sized 10-4
8/31/2019 11:44:58 am
Well, you can be sure I'm preordering the HELL out of that! Will Eithan and Lindon face off? WILL YERIN AND BLERIN FALL IN LOVE? WILL SUE EVER MEET THE MYSTERIOUS LOVER SHE DREAMS ABOUT? Found out in.... UNCROWNED!

So this comment made me think and it's now my headcanon that Suu already has a lover. That Harmony's axe was given to him because he was supposed to marry Mercy and the two weapons are bonded. It's silly but it's all your fault lol
8/31/2019 02:47:40 pm
That's right, it's Suu. MY BAD. To be honest though, I'm pretty happy this spawned headcanon because that's what every person strives to achieve!
8/31/2019 12:07:17 pm
I actually think it would be hilarious and amazing if the first major romance written in Will's books is about two sentient weapons.
8/31/2019 01:30:20 pm
Please, don't give him any ideas
9/1/2019 03:55:21 pm
I know that Suu is alive and sentient but when was there any mention of Harmonys axe being self aware?
will wight (legit)
8/31/2019 12:02:59 pm
By find out soon I mean in the comments hehe. Don't worry the actual book is coming out sep 16. You don't have to wait too long. Or.
8/31/2019 12:14:29 pm
Sixteen days, that's almost two weeks!
8/31/2019 08:28:13 pm
This reference was so good that I've now gone into a comatose
8/31/2019 04:46:42 pm
Hmm two Wills. The only way to prove yourself authentic is to answer this question that only the REAL Will would know!
8/31/2019 12:56:37 pm
Hmmmm... Official Hidden Gnome minion here.
8/31/2019 02:55:01 pm
I hereby challenge the Fake Will to a death match.
8/31/2019 10:13:58 pm
I have a telecom department meeting and an 11 hour drive on the 16th so thank you for not making the day totally F’d
9/1/2019 02:28:12 pm
Perfect holiday reading 😍
8/31/2019 12:43:12 pm
8/31/2019 12:52:43 pm
16 days!?!?! That 1382400 seconds will feel like hell.
8/31/2019 12:53:40 pm
I am basking though.
8/31/2019 01:32:56 pm
This made me so happy! Seriously, I have never bothered following book blogs and have been reading fantasy for 20 years. Will, you are a champ, thanks for being such a bloody hard worker. You are an absolutely legendary author. Thanks mate. Can't wait for Uncrowned!!!!
8/31/2019 02:11:24 pm
Thank You for all the hard work and passion u put in. Keep it up.
8/31/2019 02:23:15 pm
The Dragon Advances!
8/31/2019 02:49:39 pm
I can wait until the 16th... I'm pretty sure I have it in me... to... wait... that long... yes I can do it!
8/31/2019 03:41:57 pm
After reading and listening to all your books twice now, I'm gonna listen to them all a third time.
8/31/2019 03:53:59 pm
IT'S OVER 9000!!!!
8/31/2019 05:37:29 pm
I'm sorry, but I can't un-see the symbol on the flag as Cartman from South Park.
8/31/2019 06:17:28 pm
w-why... why would you do this to me?
8/31/2019 05:39:46 pm
Does pre-ordering give you any benefit Will? As a rule I normally do not because it used to mess up the order and actually would delay me getting the book. Willing to risk it if it does literally anything for you.
8/31/2019 09:19:32 pm
I have had that happen but for the last year or more I have been getting them earlier like 4-8 hours earlier than listed but most of the time it midnight of the day give or take your timezone.
9/1/2019 05:22:36 pm
Yup last time pre-order was faster unless you have a secondary
8/31/2019 05:55:28 pm
Can I pre order the pre-order? Maybe pre order the rest of the series? I’ll just pay for them all now...I also have a 401k I can sign over and although I don’t yet have a child I offer my first born as well
8/31/2019 10:05:48 pm
Yup, I give all Marcuses firstborns for Uncrowned triple-down Pre pre Order for the rest of the series. ( I would only wait for the side series : Basking with Orthos.)
8/31/2019 08:52:28 pm
I believe the poetic words of McLovin fit here: I have a boner
8/31/2019 09:46:11 pm
September 5th is, no joke, my birthday, so that you so much for the present. I hadn't realized I meant so you that you would gift me with the most glorious of all gifts: a new cradle book!
8/31/2019 09:48:35 pm
9/1/2019 03:37:35 am
Awesome news, time to gear up.
9/2/2019 01:51:10 pm
You could always download the kindle app on your smartphone. I haven’t used an actual kindle device in years.
9/3/2019 11:09:03 am
Oh I might give it a go. Tho i really like my kindle, its good on the eyes, but is there a catch, must i connect my advice to my phone or some such thing to view it on phone?

Who is Calder?
9/1/2019 04:22:36 pm
From the Elder Empire series.
9/1/2019 07:55:56 am
I'm 30 in a couple of weeks and get married on the 22nd and this is still the thing I'm most looking forward to. Cannot wait.
9/1/2019 10:32:51 am
Dont you usually release on 1st of month? So October right? Unless its a preorder thatw ill run for 2 to 3 months? LoL (*not* LoL)
Count De Monet
9/3/2019 11:02:16 pm
I am thinking it will be released October 1st in keeping with Will's track record of releasing books on the first of the month. Now there is a possibility that " Will legit" is really Will trolling us and thus the book comes out prior to October.
9/2/2019 03:23:13 am
These series was the only thing that kept me from lifting in the gym! It would be great if its release will be on 16. Just hope “will legit” is the real thing though
9/2/2019 12:32:46 pm
First time ever that I follow an author like that. In general I deplore such fan-boyism.
9/2/2019 04:59:42 pm
Wow that looks amazing what date does uncrowded come out on.
9/2/2019 07:21:17 pm
The only thing I'm worried/curious about is how far the book's going to go in the story. Will the year long training be montage? Or will the Tournament be glossed over in order to shorten it? How much Orthos and Kelsa action will there be in the story? As much as I love the books I feel that they're too short in order to accommodate another story line. Additionally, the amount of story development possibilities involving a grumpy/slightly hostile Akura clan and a year's worth of Sage grade Training. Lindon and Pride are bound to be rivals. If that is flushed out then there's no time for the Tournament. But if the Tournament is flushed out then the training montage is being sacrificed.
9/2/2019 07:51:21 pm
This book better be a thousand pages or I will cry
9/2/2019 08:01:24 pm
Honestly I hope that the title is misleading. I hope that they focus on the Training time period and their development and character growth. And Just Arrive at the Tournament at the end of the book. I'm also Hoping for an epic final tournament battle between Lindon and Ethan, with Yerin and Mercy taking a 3rd and 4th place.
9/3/2019 07:04:33 am
Trmptplyr07 the title wont be misleading the word "uncrowned" is in the name of the tournament sorry I cant remember its exact name... but that's why it is the title of the book .. because the book will be about the tournament lol
9/3/2019 09:01:09 pm
My identity is being stolen. In the face of my greatest enemy, Ardvark, I am powerless. There is nothing I can do, as he is taking my name, my life, and my power. Please lend me strength, o great Will, and let me defeat this adversary!
Count De Monet
9/3/2019 10:53:36 pm
Who knows, maybe Lindon and Pride will get along and start a bromance.
9/3/2019 02:41:08 am
After consuming vol. 1-6 in no-time, I am so looking forward to book 7. Does pre-order in this case mean that I will receive it right away/ earlier?
9/3/2019 03:31:39 pm
I don't think so. Last time he ran a pre-order it was just to test how it would affect his sales and we all still got it at the same time. I doubt it would be different this time around.
9/3/2019 08:13:58 am
Can I pre-order the pre-order?
9/3/2019 09:12:24 am
So I guess I lost huh
9/3/2019 01:41:18 pm
Well I mean, you have a crown so...

I could see it as live action on Netflix. Check out the movie "Swordmaster" on Netflix. Some of those fight scenes made me think of Cradle.
9/5/2019 12:06:23 am
There's a new facebook group made by Tao Wong named "Cultivation novels" if you'd like to post your stuff on there, Will. Also, you might enjoy his series, The Thousand Li.
9/5/2019 01:52:17 am
