I can't believe it's already here. So excited.
4/9/2014 03:09:20 am
I'm getting close, Harry! So close!
4/9/2014 03:11:59 am
Is it finished? Upload started? :)
4/9/2014 03:14:50 am
I haven't started the upload yet, Sam. I'm still waiting on some feedback, while simultaneously putting the file into the right format.

I couldn't help but be reminded of this!
4/9/2014 03:15:44 am
That's pretty much exactly what I thought, Sam.

Hurry and load this so I have an excuse to not go to physics lecture, thx.
4/9/2014 03:28:34 am
So can I let my wife know I will be Un available for the next day or so?
4/9/2014 03:34:24 am
Excellent. Thank you Will.

That is one of the coolest cover art I have seen for a book. Just that image made we want to read the book. Now I am going to be checking in every hour just to make sure I can read it as soon as possible.
12/19/2016 02:22:23 pm
Wait till you see his omnibus edition for thevtriology. Its sick.
4/9/2014 03:56:33 am
That's pretty cool. You may live to wight another one
4/9/2014 04:19:52 am
I see what you did there.
4/9/2014 04:00:14 am
I expected the city to have more of a golden glow. Not sure what's up with the lavender overtones. Unless of course, that isn't actually the city of light. It could be another territory impersonating the city of light. Yeah, I bet that's what this is. Will, you should do something about this ASAP. Forget about publishing your book, find out whose impersonating the city of light and execute them pronto!
4/9/2014 11:00:42 am
...remember Alin explored a few districts in The Crimson Vault, and each district had a different color theme? Gold for valor, green for patience, blue for mercy, silver for wisdom, white for selflessness, orange for loyalty, red, pink, violet, and I forgot the rest.

Red gives you strength. Tarturus. Humility?
4/9/2014 04:20:39 am
Congrats on finishing, can't wait to start reading it.
4/9/2014 04:29:37 am
Yes at least I will have something to look forward to after work it will be a great weekend!!
4/9/2014 04:39:03 am
Reviews are this week. This makes this week bearable. Thanks.
4/9/2014 04:43:21 am
Just praying it comes tonight or tomorrow morning (CEST) have a free day tomorrow and I am in terrible need of a good book to make a free day into a GREAT day :D
4/9/2014 04:43:49 am
I'm so happy. This is the best day ever! Will Wight, you are my new hero!
4/9/2014 04:48:40 am
Ooooh, I like. While I have nothing against the other two covers, I think this one does take a leap forward in terms of quality and eye-catching imagery. Can definitely see the progression from 'completely unknown self-publisher' to 'Holy-shit, this guy actually managed to self-publish!' with your works.
4/9/2014 05:03:10 am
Will you're killing me I just can't wait to read city of light I love all your other stuff and I'm super excited for this one.my question is are there going to be more after this one
4/9/2014 11:05:41 am
I think he mentioned he had some ideas in the works. I wanna say he posted about it sometime in the last 5 months? If your impatiently wondering, you could try to find it.
4/9/2014 05:07:07 am
This cover takes me there. Very excited about this book. I was just telling a friend of mine about the series and why he should be it.
4/9/2014 05:11:09 am
What can I say Will, you are my hero!
4/9/2014 05:16:32 am
So, soon like today? tomorrow? so freaking jazzed!
4/9/2014 05:32:07 am
da da da daaaaaa. dada da da daaaa...
4/9/2014 01:20:03 pm
*Joins Becky in Europe for a night on the town to celebrate* Woot!
4/9/2014 05:32:57 am
This is just a barely thought through idea but what if in the next book in this universe after the valin one you introduce another territory made of a corrupted Elysian light called Dis? Possibly made by a mad scientist trying to replicate valinhall?
4/9/2014 05:43:52 am
You should know that I can never, ever take suggestions this specific. Unclear intellectual copyright.
4/9/2014 05:47:50 am
Before the inevitable questions: fanfiction is in a different category. Apparently.
4/9/2014 08:27:40 am
You may want to think about some version control software for your writing. We use some where I program and it's pretty cool for programming use. With version control, you could point to a day and a revision and say, "See I was developing this idea back in 2012. You didn't mention it in a blog post till 2014. This idea is mine." We use redmine (http://www.redmine.org/) and SVN at different times times for document tracking. Both are free but not really useful for document tracking. I've never used it but zoho docs (http://www.zoho.com/docs/) looks interesting and may be all you need and has a free plan. Of course the easiest thing would be to have people not post specific ideas.
4/9/2014 09:36:03 am
I read somewhere that one thing people do is to mail or email themselves or someone they know with their ideas etc and they get postmarked or time stamped.
4/9/2014 11:12:34 am
Noted, Will. I also hadn't thought of it that way.
4/9/2014 05:34:41 am
You, sir, are totally my hero right now. And no, that cover did NOT make me more anxious to dive into the book. Nope, not at all!
4/9/2014 06:38:07 am
how long will it take to get the city of light on amazon for the kindle fire hd?
4/9/2014 07:17:51 am
This is, I believe, the second time you've asked a question about the Kindle Fire HD, so let me answer you more thoroughly:
12/19/2016 02:30:33 pm
4/9/2014 07:31:51 am
Wow!!! I started the traveler's gate trilogy 2 nights ago and couldnt stop reading - Imagine my surprise that as soon as I finish the first two books I find out that the third one is almost here as well. You, Sir, are a true gentleman.
4/9/2014 07:42:43 am
You just made my heart take flight!!! So excited!!!! You are totally my favorite person right now!!!
4/9/2014 08:23:25 am
Do you have a progress bar up yet? I am waiting not so patiently
12/19/2016 02:31:29 pm
Not until late 2016

All that lightning in the cover art got me thinking...

In book 2, Valin enters Endross after Simons second attempt to slow him down.
4/9/2014 09:17:03 am
Would it have been possible for you to do a pre-order thingy on Amazon - so that I could have just bought the book and had it delivered as soon as it was done? I've already checked your blog like 20 times waiting for an update :(
4/9/2014 09:33:46 am
Ha, you and I both Patrick. I think I've heard it mentioned that Amazon doesn't allow pre orders for self published works. Shame.
4/9/2014 10:36:54 am
I'd love to do that, Patrick, but it's like J said: I can't put up a pre-order. Kindle Direct Publishing does not provide that option.
4/9/2014 06:12:16 pm
Hmm Michael G Manning is a self published author I believe and has had a preorder available.
4/9/2014 06:43:28 pm
Not sure but Mannings series was a really great little surprise that Amazon suggested to me one day
4/9/2014 10:07:26 am
Despite having developed a deep-seated fear of couches, I've really enjoyed reading this series. Just not on the couch.
4/9/2014 10:26:26 am
Very nice cover!! Must be exciting to finally be ready to publish.. Thank you for the exciting adventure!
4/9/2014 10:35:39 am
I am excited, but I'm also relieved. I've been exhausted for this past couple of months. And now I have to go to PAX, which would ordinarily be a ton of fun, but now I'm afraid I'll sleep through the whole thing.
4/9/2014 01:24:49 pm
I hope you get some good rest since your work on CoL is done! Enjoy your time, and if you do sleep through PAX (which I hope you aren't that exhausted), sleep in the satisfaction of knowing you have made your fans very, very happy! :)
4/9/2014 10:35:44 am
WOW! Me likely,! Just re-read everything just to prep for COL! Wish I could have made it to UCF to meet you and thank you in person, had to work and missed it.
4/9/2014 10:37:47 am
It's all right; I should have made a bigger deal about the Festival on the blog, Facebook, etc. I was just so consumed by CoL that everything else paled in comparison.
4/9/2014 10:50:14 am
Will you do realize that when CoL finally hits for purchase at least 800 boys, girls, men, and women will scream like a crowd of raving 12 yr. old fan girls, inevitably a few will pass out, and proceed to buy your book
4/9/2014 10:51:20 am
Honestly you write amazing books but what really amazes me is how much you connect with your fans keep up the good work
4/9/2014 11:29:29 am
I am going to have to restrain my curiosity an enthusiasm until tomorrow I guess. Get some sleep, Will you've more than earned it. :)
4/9/2014 11:41:39 am
I feel like ripping your clothes off and making wild sex with you, but I'm a guy so I'll chill. And finally took you long enough. I can't read any other books because your series gave me such a high standard. I hate you for making your books so damn good and giving me standards
12/19/2016 02:35:03 pm
Your mom has feelins too.
4/9/2014 11:47:37 am
Should I look at Amazon first?
4/9/2014 12:04:39 pm
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.
4/9/2014 12:09:26 pm
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
12/19/2016 02:36:09 pm
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
4/9/2014 12:09:16 pm
I must know when I will be able to download it on the kindle app. I keep checking to see if its up yet after seeing that cover. So please for all of us who keep checking let us know when to look?
4/9/2014 12:09:58 pm
Third time I checked amazon today, may as well check again, only been about twenty minutes.

4/9/2014 12:16:02 pm
I am alternating between hitting refresh every 2.17 seconds to see if you have a new post announcing your book on amazon and trying to figure out how I can threaten/coerce/plead you into doing nothing but writing. No more fun for you! I have sketched up a setup where you work on a toilet and are fed intravenously so that you don't ever have to move away from your keyboard.
4/9/2014 12:21:55 pm
you really do have morals.. i planned almost the exact same thing but i was just not going to feed him unless i was satisfied with his writing progress
4/9/2014 01:27:24 pm
^You all are absolutely brilliant. Please tell me that these plans are actually underway! ;)
4/9/2014 04:06:45 pm
^ these all sent me into violents fits of silent laughter in class! Absolute gold! I would put adrenaline in the IVs so that they would write like maniacs. Positive reinforcement? Never.
4/18/2014 03:51:52 am
Strangely enough, that pretty much describes the layout of my writing room. It's a Saw-like death contraption that chains me in the room, and I can only earn enough slack in the chain to reach my next meal by hitting my daily writing goal.
4/9/2014 01:10:32 pm
So this is both great timing and bad timing for me. Great, because I'm about to finish up Parahumans: Worm.. but bad because I'm officially broke until I get my first paycheck. Anyways, it's great news.
4/9/2014 02:08:23 pm
I'll be staying up till 2:00 AM PDT tonight in the hope that I can read COL. That and preparing taxes. (Telling myself I'm not up till two for work makes it easier to take.)
4/9/2014 02:25:09 pm
12/19/2016 02:38:42 pm
Howdy there. He will make Elder Empire, switch to Cradle in 2016, alternate between that and Travelers Gate come 2018
4/9/2014 02:31:34 pm
This is not nice and as one of your rare female fans you should make me happy and finish this book! I'm ready to die!!! I've already read the other two books three times! :'(
4/9/2014 02:36:24 pm
4/9/2014 02:53:10 pm
Quit hassling the guy, he's busted his balls to get the book to this stage, it's out of his hands now. Lets send all of our misplaced impatience toward amazon for not uploading the book instantly.. Or we could stop being so freaking ungrateful. We all enjoy the book, which is awesome, so what can we do (besides anything productive)..? Abuse the author! What a way to thank someone who's created something we all enjoy. Keep doing what your doing Will, I'll buy anything you release. No matter the wait time between books.
4/9/2014 03:15:10 pm
Nice alt George R. R. Martin.
4/9/2014 04:27:57 pm
Thanks alt Liberachi, I appreciate the comparison
4/9/2014 06:43:28 pm
From what I can tell, Will doesn't mind at all. In fact, at the rate he responds to comments, I would go so far as to assume he enjoys it. So let's let Will bask in the enthusiasm of his readers. :)
4/18/2014 03:49:52 am
At the rate I USUALLY respond to comments. I've been kind of out of commission for the past week, but I'm trying to catch up.

4/9/2014 03:16:34 pm
4/18/2014 03:45:11 am
That's very useful, actually. Now I can look more legit in the future!
4/9/2014 03:33:12 pm
I just finished a trilogy that Amazon suggested I would like, and I was left sorely disappointed. The whole thing felt like the author was trying to rush to the end and left out a lot of depth to the characters, scenes, and universe. Now I'm practically salivating from excitement to read the amazing ending to this trilogy. I look forward to waiting for more of your works in the future.
4/9/2014 07:44:26 pm
Anyone know if (and how long) of a time difference might there be between CoL being avaible on Amazon.com and to other Amazon sites (Uk or Germany) ?
4/9/2014 10:05:49 pm
It's not up on the author's page, but I found it here:
