So the other day Liv Rancourt and I were doing the grown-up-author equivalent of a 12-year-old girl’s sleepover – we messaged each other on FB and gushed over our crushes (K.J. Charles and Sherry Thomas)
Then Liv, in clear violation of all pinky-swears, told the whole school. (She blogged about it).
It’s a good blog, too. You should read it.
But, the mention of Sherry Thomas and FEELS reminded me of something.
I’ve been a Sherry Thomas fan for a while. If anyone asks me why, I always answer with one phrase, “emotional intensity.” Sherry can grab me from page one, and she never lets go. I’ve spent a fair amount of time wondering how she does it. It wasn’t until I read The Burning Sky that I finally got a clue…and it was because of what didn’t happen that I spotted it.
