    Will there be a sequel to The Near Witch? I read it last year and loved it!

  3. hannah Seely says:

    My name is Hannah. I read the book Everyday Angel. I have a few questions for you. 1: What inspired you to write this book? 2: When/Where can I find the next books? 3: Did you know that you skipped from chapter 22 then jumped to 33 and then back to 24 in your book? I was wondering if this is a mistake or you meant to do that? 4: I liked this book very much because it connected to my life. I have scene my guardian angel. Just like Gabby saw hers in the book. Please send me and e-mail back so I know you saw this.
    Thank-You, Hannah Seely

      My name is Dayanara ( of course you cant pronounce it.) I really like what you think of everyday angel too. I am wondering where have you seen your guardian angel? And where do you live?

    Dear Victoria Schwab,

    Hi, my name is Alexis Myer and I read your book called EVERYDAY ANGEL, and I loved it so much I wanted to say a few comments and questions about it.
    First, I just wanted to say I enjoyed this book very much. I love how it has mystery and charm in it. One of my favorite parts in the book is when Gabi starts to sing in music and loses her smoke that represented her sadness. I thought that was creative how you came up with the smoke. Another thing I liked about the book was how Aria always added pop of color to things, it made me happy thinking about all the colors! Another comment was I love how you represent that everyone has their guardian angel some place out in the world.

    Now I wanted to ask you a few questions. First off, how did you come with the idea of this book?
    Is there going to be a sequel to this book?
    What do you want to teach kids when they read this book?
    Are some of the things that happened in the book true?
    How did you become an author?
    What inspired you to write the book?
    When Aria has helped all three girls will she go back to spend time with them?

    Those are most of my questions for now, I would really appreciate it if you write back to me. I hope maybe someday I could meet you in person. You have really inspired me, I might want to be an author when I grow up. Thank you so much.

      Hi Alexis! I’m really glad you enjoyed it! As for your questions, some of them I can’t answer here because I answer them in the books, so you’ll just have to keep reading to find out. But I will say that Book 2–Second Chances–is out now, and Book 3–Last Wishes–is coming out in January. As for what I wanted to teach kids, that changes with each book. In the first book, it’s about finding your identity/voice, and understanding that there are things in life you can’t control, so it’s important not to lose sight of what you CAN. No, the specific aspects are not true, but all fiction has truth in it. And I became an author by writing A LOT, working to get better and better until I was strong enough to sign with an agent and then a publisher. I was inspired to write the book because I wanted to help girls who might be going through some rough situations, or who might know someone going through that situation.

    Your book Everyday Angel: New Beginnings was absolutely amazing! It is my favorite book! I cannot wait to read the second and third book! I enjoy the way you write and your imagination! Keep em’ coming! 😊

  6. Lauren says:

    Dear Victoria Schwab,
    Hello my name is Lauren and i am in 5th grade. Everyday Angel New Beginnings is my favorite book out of all of the books I have ever read! Every time I read a book,I can’t understand them because it’s just not my type of book! Everyday Angel I can acually understand and I love the book! My goal is to read all of your books.
    I didn’t really like to read that much,but when I opened the very first page and read it I wanted to keep reading it! I’m done with the book and I can acually picture in my head what is happening. What are some of your other books called? I want to get some. You are my favorite author ever! I hope to hear from you.

    • veschwab says:

      Hi Lauren! I am so, so glad that you enjoyed Everyday Angel so much!!! I think sometimes we just need to find the right book to become a reader, and I’m honored that Everyday Angel was yours :)


  7. Camila dos Santos says:

    Hello :)
    I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed reading your books “The Archived” and “The Unbound”. Once I started I couldn’t stop. So thank you for writing those books, I really liked them. Even my boyfriend started reading them now and he is enjoying them as much as I did.
    One question: will there be a third a book?
    I’m looking forward to your new book “A Darker Shade Of Magic” it sounds very interesting!

    Best wishes from Germany! :D

    What specific things did you want to put in the books?

    But most importantly

  10. Zoe says:

    Are you planning on writing a third Archived book? The first two were wonderful!

  11. Tammie says:

    My 10 year old daughter isn’t much of a reader, but she loved all three books in your Everyday Angel collection. I want to buy her more books she will love. Do you have any other books for your age range, or similar to Everyday Angel?

  12. aiko says:

    Hi Ms. Victoria I just want to ask do you have signed copy of your book that can be purchase online? Thanks 😊

  13. Bella says:

    Hi, Victoria! I absolutely ADORE your books! I read “The Archived” for a school reading competition (my friends Carol and Abby actually emailed you in November) and then read “The Unbound” as soon as humanly possible. I read “A Darker Shade of Magic” a few weeks ago and I just finished “Vicious” which I loved! I was wondering (and hoping) if there would be a second book to “Vicious”? I loved the characters and I HAVE to know what happened after the book ended! Thank you so much for being so brilliant and sharing your brilliancy with the literary world!!!:D (I have a flair for the dramatic in case you can’t tell.)

  14. Hi! I’ve heard so many good things about Victoria’s books from the Booktube community, and so i’ve decided to read them all! Which one is recommended to start with? Thanks so much to anyone who replies!

    • Aisha says:

      Hi! I heard about Victoria’s books through Booktube as well (from JesseTheReader) I read the Archived a few days ago and it was AH-MAH-ZING! I would recommend you start with that one, I don’t think you’ll regret it!

  15. Colleen Maier says:

    My daughter and I have just finished reading your Everyday Angel series. We loved them and were wondering if you have any type of sequels planned? Or perhaps a similar series? They are such an uplifting, positive series for girls! Please continue with this type of writing!

    Hi, Just about 1/4 thru “A Darker Shade of Magic” and I am enjoying the read very much. This is my first book you have written and I will be adding your name to my growing list of Great authors. My pleasure in life is escaping into a good read. Thanks and I look forward to your other books.

    I recently purchased your book -A Darker Shade of Magic- on audio. I have already listened to it twice now, it was very good! I look forward to more adventures with Kell and Delilah. I can’t wait to hear their story continue. Thank you!

  18. I’ve got to add your books to my reading list!

  19. Carol Laux says:

    Hello! I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Archived and Unbound books! Another kick ass heroine to admire. I was wondering when and if you were going to come out with The Returned??
