You don’t need to be a bookworm to have a favorite author. You also don’t need to be a bookworm to follow said author’s blog or communications to the world. However, how you react to the news, well… let’s say bookworms are used to have their feelings shattered, and sometimes, following authors carry risk hazard.
I am quite picky about following them. Because I tend to jump into every text they send my way, and them become a pile of anxiety and frustration till the book is out and I’m holding it on my hands.
Ilona Andrews’s is a particularly tough subject to me. I battled with myself over the years, because their snippets are worth the authors’ weight in gold… they also are bittersweet sometimes because…hello…excerpts and my inability not to read them, even if release date is twenty years away!!!
Anyway, I lost that battle. So, I follow them. And get mail notifications from every post. And resigned myself to be brokenhearted a couple times a week. It comes with the “bookworm” title I guess.
So, this morning, I had an email waiting for me. They shared with us, with the world, that the first draft of Magic Triumphs is done. I was really happy for them. I could feel the sheer joy and relief on those words. I was all smiley and sending good vibes from this side of the Atlantic. I even did a mental happy dance. Also, my inner fan girl was all excited. Kate Daniels phase 1 is done. It’s going to be ready on time. The turning wheels of books publication process phase has begun, and can’t be stopped now!!!
And then brain caught up…
Kate Daniels is done.
My all time favorite series is done.
It ends now.
It’s going to have the words “The End” at the end.
I’m going to read those words.
It’s time to say goodbye.
To get into a one last adventure with Kate and the Beast Lord.
To fight and bleed and laugh and shout at them.
It’s time to let them go.
I might or might not be fighting tears as we speak…since…you know… I’m at work right now… and I share a table with another 4 co-workers…. male co-workers…. that don’t read….
I also want to kick Elsa’s butt, because no matter of how many times I hear that damn song, Let It Go is hard as hell.
I thought the world was ending when Cut&Run last installment was out. I was wrong. So wrong.
*hugs tightly to all Kate Books*
