Shenanigans (Late Night Edition)

I’m standing in my kitchen covered in flour and cinnamon and sugar after deciding to bake some bread.

I got back from laser-tagging it up (as you do) and thought, “Hey! You know what my life is lacking? Cinnamon raisin bread!” And then I got halfway through making it, which turns out to be two hours later, and I decided to finish it up in the morning, so WIN for Future V and BOO for Present V who has to clean up the kitchen.

And blog.

I felt like blogging.

So hello!

A few things of note.

Thing #1, in case you missed it!


Ooooooh, shiny. You can find the synopsis for the above shiny on its dedicated little tab above under BOOKS.

Which brings me to thing #2!

A new blog design! I was in the mood for a change, and couldn’t fit in a tattoo or a haircut so I thought, “Blog redesign!” I think it’s pretty swanky. And it allows me to sport BOTH of my names 😉

Which brings me in a roundabout way to thing #3!

The cover reveal for VICIOUS is nearly upon us! At first I thought it would be today but the powers-that-be wanted to do shiny things that take time so now it will probably be early next week! I see this as an opportunity to spread the awesome out a little 😉

Which in some way brings me to thing #4!

Redesigning the blog was actually a rather surreal experience, because as I was creating the little tabs under the BOOKS label I realized OMG I HAVE BOOKS PLURAL. And then I had a moment about that. Sometimes moments just kind of sneak up on you (like I did on 30+ children tonight at laser tag right before I PWNED THEM WITH MY SKILLZ)* and the act of listing my books, both those on shelves and those on their way was a punch to the gut, if punches to the gut came with pleasant feelings, too. I just had to sit very still for a few minutes and catch my breath.

Which brings me rather directly to thing #5.

Thank you. For everything you’ve done. For buying the books, of course, but also for sending me notes/emails/DMs/messages telling me you believe in me, or that X or Y or Z made you feel A or B or C, or that you follow me because of blank, or for any and all the things you say and do that make me feel good on bad days and great on good ones. Every bit of success belongs to you as much as me and I will never, ever, ever stop being grateful.

    *Smiles.* Early morning “Shenanigans” here … since I am UP already. BUT I hope you’re still doing the beauty sleep thing (since laser tagging makes for great chunks of Stress FreeTired)! Better hide that cinamon raisin bread … 🙂

  2. Beautiful cover!! And I’m super excited for next week’s reveal!

    Mmm, cinnamon bread…!?

    Very nice! love the new design And your title of your post drew me right in! AWESOME! And you know how I feel about Unbound, I cannot wait. I am chomping at the bit. Excited beyond belief! You amaze me!

  4. I love the minimalist design. 🙂

    Congrats to YOU and everything that you’ve accomplished and for being an awesome person through it all. You, V, are my writing inspiration. (And, yum, bread and tea!)

    Intriguing cover. Oh, I finally got around to posing my review of the first 9 chapters of “The Archived”: . As you can tell, it was actually written a long, Long, LONG time ago, but I couldn’t post it on Amazon until it was officially released, and frankly, I forgot about it until your next to most recent blog entry.

    Enjoy, scream, put out a contract on me as you see fit.

    This made me laugh out loud!!! What an awesome post 🙂 just saw it in my email inbox, driving home with my husband and son, and they were like, “What on earth are you laughing at?!” So adorably funny 🙂

    That cover for The Unbound is just gorgeous! I think I like it even more than the cover for The Archived, which surprises me. Now how long do I have to wait before I get to *read* this delicious morsel? 😀

    I am *so* excited for news about Vicious, too. This week I saw some bloggers doing a top ten list of authors they auto-buy. I didn’t do a list on my blog, but I’m just now realizing that Victoria Schwab – you’re on my auto-buy list (which is so short it’s nowhere near 10)!

  9. I still haven’t read The Archived, but I’m looking forward to it after reading The Near Witch! I enjoy reading your tweets, by the way, as they’re often entertaining or inspiring or both at once 🙂

  10. Love the new blog design!! Unbound’s cover is crazy amazing!
    P.S Just saw Vicious cover reveal and I love it!! V.E Schwab is a cool way to write your name.
