  1. This made me feel a few feels myself. Probably not ALL of them. But a good amount.

    Congratulations on your Witchiversary and turning in Vicious, and also please go get yourself a cupcake, ASAP.

  2. Awww…this makes me want to give you ALL THE HUGS! That is so amazing that you had that with Vicious. Seeing your passion for it, I so want to read it now! I get that. I’m in the middle of a book that I’m making myself share with a few select people. It is one of those books that claws its way out of your brain and makes itself known. Great, now I’m having all the FEELS. Gah.

    Anyway, super hugs and congrats. I know finishing Vicious is a loss for you, but you will find another Sekret book that will be all yours until you send it out into the world and it will be amazing. πŸ˜€

      I just hope I can find that feeling again one day. The problem with first times is that they come with a fear of being only times. And thank you ❀

    Oh,V. I know THE FEELS you’re feeling. I finished edits on Broken yesterday, and my editor told me “you’re done!” Everyone woo-hooed and said to celebrate. I’m still dealing with the hollowed-out, sense of loss. When I started Broken, it was MINE, only one beta reader knew about it. Even my agent didn’t know for a while. The story was everything I wanted it to be, it was my safe happy place. And now we’re just…done. I miss that book.

    OH MY GOODNESS NOW I’M CRYING. *stuffs cereal into mouth* *blows nose* I’m glad you figured out what is/was making you feel feelings and stuff. (> ^ ^ <) (That's a giant hug.) ❀

  5. Annika says:

    I want to give you the biggest hug.

  6. Claire says:

    Lovely post, V. I can’t wait to read VICIOUS. *hugs*

    It doesn’t sound silly at all. It’s closing a chapter, and mirrored by the moving, and juggling everything else in there… Yeah. All the all the feels. *great big hugs* ❀ Change is scary and big and sometimes overwhelming. I can SO relate. Moving up north from TX was the biggest, most terrifying thing I've done so far in my life, and it's stressful and scary and awesome (because I can meet so many new people this way and have such awesome experiences), but it's the right thing to do at the same time. You'll see, things will work out even better than you can guess.

    And congrats on the bookiversary, YAY BOOKS! ❀ *hands you cupcakes and cookies and tea and more hugs*

    Geeze. Now I’m sitting here feeling all these feels. I am going to miss you so much, V. And I’m so proud of you and know VICIOUS is going to be amazing, because I have such immense respect for you, and can’t imagine how anyone as brilliant as you could love something that much and NOT have it be something really, truly special.

  9. Oh V…

    1. I’ve decided that I’m going to adopt you *hug*

    2. Vicious is obviously a very special book and you’ve just successfully ramped up how much I want to read it! I understand the loss part an the safe book part.

    3. *hands you an alcoholic cupcake*

  10. Congrats on the Near Witch anniversary!!

    And I have to agree with M. Andrew Patterson – seeing how passionate you are about Vicious makes me all the more excited for it. Books tend to be so much better when you can tell that the author truly loved writing it πŸ™‚
