Slanderous Claims…..

Okay. About a week and a half ago, I posted up the cover art for The Wise Man’s Fear. My second child. Or, as you probably think of it, book two in the Kingkiller Chronicles.

Now, some of you said some hurtful things after I made that post. Some of you implied that I was merely taunting them by displaying cover art to a book that they couldn’t buy. Several people said that I was being a tease.

Words can hurt, you know. I resent being called a tease when all I’m trying to do is share thing with you. I’m trying to give you a little preview of things to come.

Besides, if I were a tease, I’d post up something like this….

    Bah, it is just the dust cover cleverly placed on a copy of The Name of the Wind. Prove me wrong!!!(note: the best way to prove me wrong would be to mail it to me… i will even happily pay the post)(note 2: send it quick, i am leaving the country in a couple weeks, and it will be nearly impossible to get your book)

    you’re an evil man, pat, especially considering i won’t be anywhere with mail or bookstores until december of ’08.which means, i think, that no one else gets to whine about waiting for the april release.ha!

    That was the most awesomest post ever.And it’s not teasing if there’s payout at the end. It’s, you know, foreplay.

    You know, this isn’t doing anything to help end your reputation as a tease. This would be cruel if it wasn’t so awesome. At least now we know the book is at least as long as The Name of the Wind.

    I read his second book in the future and it’s awesome. I believe I assured someone of that very fact at GenCon.

    hello…original introduction post on the “Where is the girl” topic. :) Maybe I should have been more specific when I said I couldn’t wait for the second book…how about I can’t wait to open the cover of the book myself. :)
