Think You're Excited About The HUSH, HUSH Release? Here's What Becca Has To Say!

Becca Fitzpatrick, author of HUSH, HUSH has been kind enough to be our Guest Blogger today in celebration of the official release of HUSH, HUSH. Thanks Becca for this message to all of the fans at FallenArchangel.com!!


Hi, everyone!

Wow. I've spent the past half hour trying to figure out how to explain how I feel right now, on the day of HUSH, HUSH's launch, but every attempt is falling short! Ecstatic, amazed, freaked out, terrified, honored and even surreal doesn't quite seem big enough. I've spent six years getting here, and along the way, there have been the very highest of moments, and moments when I locked myself in the bathroom, crying over the rejection letter that I swore would be the one that broke me. Just over a week ago, I went back through my old computer files and dug out the earliest draft of HUSH, HUSH I could find – dated February 2004. Reading through it made me realize just how far I've come – not only in terms of writing and storytelling, but as a person. I've been through the publishing world's refining fire, so to speak, and even though I never thought the day would come when I'd say this, I'm happy it was such a struggle. Look where it's brought me! I'm watching a dream I've held in my heart since I was eight years old coming true, and nothing can top that. This is one of the most memorable days of my life, and it's awesome to be here sharing it with you guys. So thanks for being here!

And now a word on Fallen Archangel. Buckets of thank-yous and appreciation to Rebecca and Jenn for creating and maintaining this numero uno fansite! I love it so much that I want to be a regular, participating member – you guys are too much fun to hang out with for me to want it any other way! After chatting with Jenn and Rebecca, we've agreed to set aside Mondays as Ask Becca A Question Day. Every Sunday, Jenn will unlock the Ask Becca topic, and on Monday I'll answer approximately three questions that are posted. The questions can be anything! Maybe you want to know what inspired me to write HUSH, HUSH, or maybe you're an aspiring author, and want a behind-the-scenes peek at what it's really like publishing a book. Anything goes. Every Monday, I'll stop in and do my best to answer whatever's on your mind. So, yeah. Starting thinking up those questions!

Thanks for being a part of this community, and I'll see you guys back here later. Right now, I'm going to turn up the music, order in pizza, and celebrate!!

Becca

Congrats! Congrats! Congrats! I've been anticipating this for weeks and I'm only a fan- I can't imagine how you've felt, lol.

And that's so cool of you to do the questions on the forum. I think it's cool you go on there, lol, but to interact with the fans more. You rock, serisouly. Thanks for being so cool and thanks for Hush, Hush.

Congratulations!! This is such a huge milestone and we're so excited for you. I can't get enough of Hush, Hush!! Loved it! I've read the Arc three times now.

You deserve all the success that Hush, Hush will have and I can't wait for next year when C hits the shelves!!
