When George R.R. Martin declared to the world that he wasn't quite finished with the next book in the Game of Thrones series, he might have been expected to get a little bit of Internet hate. What with how often fans are begging/yelling at him him to write, write, write and the fact that the HBO show is catching up to the last published book and all. But it turns out, Martin received an outpouring of support after he poured his heart out on his Livejournal (yup, he still uses one).
The outpouring of support in response to my post on THE WINDS OF WINTER has been astonishing. Thank you all, so very much. ... But I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all the kind words and good wishes.
