Anonymous asked: how does it make you feel when you think about the fact that the raised by wolves series metaphorically tore my heart out and created a river of tears but it was so mind-blowingly amazing it pulled me back in to read the entire series again?

Does it make me a horrible person if I said that it makes me feel really, really good?

I didn’t craft the ending of Taken By Storm for the *purpose* of tearing out people’s hearts… but I think the ability to create emotions (of all kinds) in readers is one of the most powerful things fiction can do. ┬áSo thank you, for your kind words and emotional investment! They are both appreciated. :)
