^ I actually prefer it this way. My greatest regret about this board is that reading this forum has rendered the curtain between readers and authors and editors quite threadbare. As much as I like being able to ask questions, it would be nice sometimes to simply enjoy the books with other readers without knowing anything of what's going on behind the scenes.
It's also unfortunate that speculations about future stories and story possibilities are censored here in a way that they aren't in other forums on the board that aren't known to be frequented by creators. Sometimes, it would be fun to speculate.
