Something like that. Did I read the thing cover-to-cover? No. The option wasn't available when I started the Author's commissions in 2005. Do I know things? Yes. Will I share them? I'm honor-bound not to.
Last book is less than a month out, so all gag orders will be null and void then
Oh, no worries there. I've already read the book as well. I'm a member in one of 15 teen library groups in the US that get pre-published books to review. So, in short, I understand the gag order exactly! My silence on the book is driving my friends crazy though!
You're concept art is, in a word, amazing! Not just the MI stuff either, all of it is very impressive.
4 years! Okay, that would definitely be much, much harder to keep quiet. Still, that people would hound you that much as to necessitate a removal of comments...ouch. What some fans will do to know about a book early is astonishing.
