Wicked!!! – Addison Moore

Wicked!!!

~*New*~ update:
Hi guys! Wow, thanx for all the Celestra love! Here's the Amazon link for Wicked!

Thank you again for all of the comments here, facebook, twitter, and Goodreads! Also HUGE thank you for the reviews on both Goodreads and Amazon, that's always appreciated, too!

I did note some weird section breaks in the text and fixed those. I apologize about that!

Also, I wanted to give you the heads up that thanks to a great suggestion by Heather I'll be posting an excerpt  from VEX on my facebook page on Tuesdays, thus, the The Tuesday Tease. =) I'm excited about that. Just remember, I'm West Coast and generally lazy, so it could happen at any point in the day since I'll most likely be sleeping through most of your mornings. (sadly true) 

The Nook version of WICKED should be up shortly.  

*Happy Reading*

I hit the publish button over at Amazon this morning! I’ll do the same for the Nook shortly, and both should be up sometime today or this weekend. Amazon seems to load just a little quicker and mobile users usually get the book to show first.

Hope you enjoy WICKED! I had a blast writing it.

Hi all! I'm home after a loooong day. Thank you SO much for all the WICKED love! ~*Happy Reading!!!*~

hoggsandkisses says September 16, 2011

Thank you so much for these wonderful books! I was so tired of reading fillers waiting for Wicked to be done. Maybe I'll read a little slower this time in hopes that the 5th will be on it's way…. So excited for this!

Bckygnzlz says September 16, 2011

I knew it!!! I knew it! I knew it! I knew it!!! HA!

Sorry I just knew it!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

hoggsandkisses – Happy slow reading! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy! I hack into VEX again starting tomorrow! Toady was all caffeine and no sleep.

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Bckygnzlz – Does that mean you're finished? I'm exhausted so my brain is playing tricks on me. Happy reading if you're not! =)

Amy says September 17, 2011

AAAAHHHHH!!! What does Bckygnzlz mean?!? I have to read! Wishing my kids would go to sleep…. LOL!

Amy says September 17, 2011

Oh, and I wanted to shout a big:
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
For working so hard and getting it out this weekend. You've made a lot of readers very happy πŸ™‚

Bckygnzlz says September 17, 2011

ditto to what Amy said!

And Amy I'm just commenting on something I asked about on another forum lol! Sorry for the curiosity but I'm the only 1 I know who's already started reading and I had to get it out lol! I'm feeling very anxious not having somebody close to discuss chapter by chapter with lol!

Heather says September 17, 2011

Holy mary mother of God what the heck was that?!?! I am stunned! In complete disbelief about the ending. Complete amazeballs! Please let Vex answer some of that craziness.

Okay, enough rambling I have to go let that percolate and then read it again.

Jenn says September 17, 2011

FANfreakingtastic!
can't wait to devour every single word that you put hardwork, sleepless nights, burning eyes and numb fingers to type for us!

Kristinab23 says September 17, 2011

Gah! I don't have time to read! I am working tomorrow and I spent 9 hous working today out in the sun and got all sunburnt! I am too tired to read tonight! O'well I am off Sunday maybe I can get some reading time in then. I did already download the book so it is happily waitng for me on my Kindle! Bckygnzlz-I am going to have to switch back to the forum I know we all asked questions on so I can reread your question, now want to know what got answered. lol. I wonder what other questions are answered and how quickly in the book they come? O'well we shall see. I can't wait for time to read! πŸ˜› BTW-I plan to wear sunscreen tomorrow lol. I believed I would be working under a tent all day so I didn't bother but now I look like a well cooked lobster lol! Florida sun in a scorcher!

Heather says September 17, 2011

Kristinab23-lots get answered but you get a slew of new questions to ask. I'm DYING here. So crazy.

Yoss Jr says September 17, 2011

Oh my FREAKING GOODNESS!!!! AHHH…. I can't believe it… please tell me that VEX will be released soon?!?!?! Please please. I need answers… I am definitely addicted to this series… you have done an amazing job.

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Amy – You're welcome! Writing is a joy or as my husband might say, a serious addiction, but either way, no need to thank me. =) I'm just humbled that you read my stories. I hope you'll enjoy WICKED!!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Bckygnzlz – Oh I'm glad something was answered for you! Feel free to discuss away, either here, my FB, Amazon page, all of the above. πŸ˜‰ Can't wait to peek in on the conversation! Thank you SO much for reading WICKED.

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Heather – I love your comment, lol! Hope you enjoyed the read!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Jenn – Aw, thanks! Yes, much love was poured into WICKED. I hope it resonates with the words and story. Happy reading Jenn! And I can't wait to share my good news with you and everyone else! Hopefully that blog post won't be too far away.

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Kristinab23 – Yikes! Yes, slather on the sunscreen! Enjoy your weekend and happy reading whenever you get the chance!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Yoss Jr – Thank you for reading! I love that you gobbled WICKED up! If it's any consolation VEX is 40% done and moves the entire plot of the series along nicely. =)

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Amber Maxwell – I love that!! Although the book may not have a Disney ending, the series just might some day. πŸ˜‰

Sabrina- I hope you have a great weekend reading! =)

Hi Amanda – Thanx for the continued support!

Breonna- Your comment was SO sweet! Thank you for your kind words.

Loree Huebner – You know I heart your continued support! Thanx Loree!!!

E.J. Wesley – It was a celebration and a crazy busy day all around. My goal is to sleep in tomorrow. πŸ˜‰ Thanx for reading!!!

Fuzzyslippers – Happy reading girl! I hope you're not up as late as I am. πŸ˜‰

Logan Rutherford – You have a great name. πŸ˜‰ I always smile when I see your name pop up in the blog. Happy reading, Logan!

Kayleigh says September 17, 2011

No freaking way!!!! I can't believe the ending, I won't believe it! I just won't!!!! That was just cruel ;-).

Your writing was amazing, as usual. You're truly talented, thank you for writin this amazing series.

And so begins the countdown to Vex!!! πŸ™‚

Danetra says September 17, 2011

My exact thoughts at the end of the book, "Holy Shit! And she did it again, left me hanging on a cliffhanger". Thanks for the great read Addison! I just don't want to believe the part about Logan. It just can't be true. And that's all I will say for now as I know others are still reading. Looking forward to Vex.

Shannon says September 17, 2011

All I can say is OOOOMMMMMGGGGGG!!!! I finished Wicked in one sitting and I am so in a tizzy over the ending. I can't believe I have to wait until November to see what happens!!!!
This is such a great series. I will be impatiently waiting for Vex!!!

Bckygnzlz says September 17, 2011

I keep reading posts about this amazing cliffhanger that makes me wanna whiz thru the book lol! I told myself before I got the book that I was gonna take my time with it since I rushed thru the 1st 3 and missed so many obvious details. I'm excited to find out what all the craziness is about lol!!!

Fuzzyslippers says September 17, 2011

It was def a late night, but I enjoyed it. I just could NOT put Wicked down!! It was an awesome read!! And as for the end all I can say is WOW!!! I Can't wait for Vex!!

Heather says September 17, 2011

Loving all the reactions. I'm in denial. It so didn't go down that way at all πŸ˜‰ my brain was going so fast after reading wicked I couldn't get to sleep until after 4am and I finished the book at 9pm!

Hey, Addison, any chance of doing "teaser Tuesday" with Vex? Tammara Webber is doing it on her FB page with the Between the Lines sequel and its SO fun.

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Kayleigh – Wow, thanks for reading and for the kind words! I have a feeling VEX will be here before we know it. At least it will feel that way for me. πŸ˜‰ Enjoy the rest of your weekend girl!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Danetra – I'm glad you enjoyed WICKED! Regarding the end, a few times after I went through WICKED I would have to open the doc file for VEX just to read on. I think the opening to VEX is my favorite openings so far. Thank you for reading, Danetra!!!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Hi Shannon! I so love your reaction to the end of WICKED, although my intent wasn't to distress anyone, lol. πŸ˜‰ I have a feeling November will sneak up on us. Thanx for reading!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Bckygnzlz – take your time and enjoy!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Fuzzyslippers – I hope you have a restful rest of the weekend! Thank you so much for reading!!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Hi Heather! I'll check out Tammara's site and see if I can use it as a model or get some ideas. I think that would be fantastic, esp, since my word count seems to grow with each progressive novel.There's definitely plenty to share or tease. πŸ˜‰

Amber J. says September 17, 2011

Gage. WTF?! The way he's handled the whole Chloe situation was just horrible, so he lost major cool points in this book. By the time I was 2/3 thru the book I was ready to take a cue from "the pretty Oliver" and renounce my Team Gage status and switch to Team Logan.

But now I'm 80% in, and can see that Gage's redeeming qualities are re-emerging, so I will officially straddle the line between Team Gage and Team Logan…and might as well throw Team Marshall in there since I feel his plight too lol.

BUT there are a lot of things that confuse me (as usual lol) SO when I finish this book (hopefully in the next few hours) will it be safe to come out of hiding and ask questions lol?

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Hi Amber – I'll be glad to answer anything I can.

Ariel says September 17, 2011

So I've been reading the comments in these forums for a while now but not saying anything…. But after the ending of Wicked. I feel like I have to…That book was amazing and the ending was great. When I finished reading it I was shocked, and there was nonwaybI could have seen that coming. It was a nice way to keep us all on our toesvwaiting for Vex!

AddisonMoore says September 17, 2011

Ariel – I'm so glad you liked WICKED! LOl about keeping you on your toes! I always feel like my characters do that for me, too. πŸ˜‰ SO glad you enjoyed the ending. Have a great rest of the weekend!

Tara Reed Photography says September 18, 2011

I am in complete shock!!!WOW!!! I told you before I feared for Skyla and boy was I right! It's going to be hell waiting for the next book. Finished the book in about 2 hours, I think I need to re-read it. Great job as always!

AddisonMoore says September 18, 2011

Tara Reed Photography- Hi Tara! I'm glad you enjoyed the book! I'll be posting teasers of VEX on my FB page every Tuesday until it comes out. I hope that will help the time fly by! =)

Logan Rutherford says September 18, 2011

Okay, so I'm 42 percent through WICKED. The way Gage is acting solidify's my Team Logan stance (and not just because of his name.)

I must admit, I was reading WICKED on my way to my acting lessons (I feel the need to explain that I was not the one driving Hahaha), and during my class, I couldn't stop thinking about WICKED! You're books are truly amazing, you're a "wicked" writer! Hahaha. THAT'S a knee slapper, right there!

AddisonMoore says September 18, 2011

Logan Rutherford – I'm glad you're still rooting for the one you share a name with. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book! Let me know your thoughts when your through. Enjoy!

squibbers09 says September 18, 2011

OMG, I cannot believe that ending!!! My husband was looking at me crazy when I finished WICKED a minute ago and immediately said "Holy Shit Fuck what the hell was that?". LOL and now I feel the need to go back and reread the series again! I loved WICKED so much more than I expected! When gage was being an idiot with the whole chloe blackmail I actually cried and I started to lean towards team logan but he redeemed himself and I am now still team gage! However, even though I am team gage I cannot believe that ending with logan and I am positive there will be no sleep in my near future becasue my mind is on overdrive at the moment. I am going to be dying until VEX comes out. My daughter turns 2 Nov. 3rd so hopefully all the birthday and halloween planning will make the time speed by! Anyway I have told you on amazon how much I love your writing and that I felt like some kind of creepy stalker well my stalker status has just been promoted to obbessive creepy stalker lol. I just had to join blogspot so I could follow you :D! Anyways, Keep up the amazing work!

Bckygnzlz says September 18, 2011

Wow what an ending! I don't buy it though. I'm totally team Gage but I feel like Logan really does love her! I'm kinda letting Marshall grow on me too. I mean he's creepy but he has TRIED to help Skyla. I'm still not sure what his true intentions are though.

My sister just started reading the series and I'm oh so happy to have an obsessive buddy to dissect the whole series with!

I can't wait to find out what Logans plan is (because I refuse to believe he's the bad guy) and what happens to Marshall. I'll be stalking ur facebook page every tuesday to get a little Celesrta fix!

Thank you!!!

Oh and p.s. I knew Candace was Skyla's bio mom!! πŸ˜‰

Great job Addison! I'm totally falling in love with a series again!!!

Kristinab23 says September 18, 2011

Good morning Addison! (Well morning for me anyway lol) I woke up extra early this morning so I could get in some reading time before the kiddos got up. I am enjoying the book so far! I just got through the part where Brielle clarifies her working situation. I have to say I enjoy how it was written, very Brielle and sassy lol. I might be a bit biased knowing I inspired the clarification to begin with ;)Thank you so much for that BTW, it clears up my litle bit of confusion πŸ™‚ So I am off to read again. I had to stop reading the posts above because they were getting too close to revealing things I want to find out myself lol. Happy readng everyone and I will be back to share when I am done. I will probably peek though since this book is taking me way longer than usual to read because of my demanding new job. πŸ™‚ Thanks again, Addison and happy writting to you!

Danetra says September 18, 2011

So I had not previosly joined a team. I was kinda liking all of them. Even though Marshall can seem harsh and creepy. And I still want to believe somehow Logan is good and loves Skyla. And though I was disappointed in Gage not being honest with Skyla, I still like him. But I think I am starting to favor Marshall. He has always been honest with her. He tries to help her. Seems to genuinely like her. But still gives her freedoms to figure stuff out on her own even if that means she gets herself into trouble. Seeing as he is so powerful, I am sure if he used all that power he could have already won her and even controlled a lot of her actions. I think he is giving her time to fall in love with him. And he probably would be better matched for her – protect her and fight with her. Plus once she chooses him, he would probably do anything for her. Guess I'll be waiting to see what happens.

Amber J. says September 18, 2011

Oops I sent this post (unfinished) by accident earlier…

Apparently most of your fans are speed readers (unlike myself) so it took me a while (I even read while making goody bags for my godson's birthday party lol), but I'm finally finished.

I could tell by everyone's comments I was supposed to be in store for a crazy ending, but I always keep in mind the 2 things I've learned thru reading the Celestra series: (1) nothing in Paragon is ever as it seems, and (2) Addison Moore knows exactly what she's doing.
That's why the ending didn't bother me at all. Everything Logan has done so far concerning Skyla is out of love for her and his desire to have her for himself, so this will all make sense either in VEX or Book 6.

I will only ask one question for now, because it's kind of a doozy: After reading the scene with Skyla and Logan in Rome, I have finalized my theory – it seems like each faction is allowed a mode of "transportation"
– Levatio/Noster can teleport
– Counts can treble (but need a supervising spirit)
– Celestra can light drive (but need a supervising spirit to travel into the future)

If all the above is correct, then it would make sense that Logan can both light drive and treble, BUT Logan tells his parents he just found out he's part Count (when he and and Gage found his name under "Hybrids"), HOWEVER, he did the treble way back in ETHEREAL, so does that mean he's lying and he's known he was a Count all along? And what supervising spirit has he been working with since the beginning?

Also, I'm in awe of the way you give ALL your characters unique and believable voices and personalities. Especially with the Big 3: you do an excellent job of giving Gage, Logan, and Marshall distinctively different (and male) personalities that have developed realistically along the course of the series. I've had a story swimming around in my head for a couple years, and I finally decided to put pen to page and I realize how hard it is, when you have a large cast of characters, to give everyone their own specific voice (I feel like I'm getting multiple personality disorder lol).

You are definitely a force to be reckoned with (I won't be surprised if Candace the Caelestis is based a little bit on you lol). Another stellar book in the bag!

I can't wait until tomorrow, so when everyone asks me "How was your weekend?", I can say "It was WICKED!"

Bckygnzlz says September 18, 2011

Okay so turns out I do have questions lol.

1) What's the deal with the transfer and why did Marshall land Skyla there twice?

2) The landon body floating in the tube, is that Drakes baby or Skylas new step brother?

3) Are we gonna see who Holden ended up with for a body?

I'm pretty sure u won't be able to answer these because they'll be answered soon enough but I figured it was worth a shot. I'm off to read Wicked again in case the answer is in there and I missed it lol!

Have a great Sunday all!

Amber J. says September 18, 2011

@ Bckygnzlz – Marshall isn't the one that did it, check Chapter 50: β€œSo it is called the Transfer. How did we get there in the first place?”
β€œI don’t know,” his lips twist when he says it while holding back a smile.
β€œYou must have been there. Hey, are you watching me?” I blink into the realization.
β€œAm I watching you, or am I watching the Transfer?”

I think the more interesting question might be: How come Gage was taken with Skyla into the Transfer when he was with her, but Logan wasn't taken when he was with her after the trees grabbed them?…just a thought

Bckygnzlz says September 18, 2011

Good point Amber J. I just don't really trust Marshall. I think he and Logan are alike in the way they only tell Skyla half truths to pacify her.

Kristinab23 says September 18, 2011

OK I just HAD to post this! am laughing my butt off. HILARIOUS! I completely understand if you delete this since it is a paragraph from your book but I wanted to share how funny it is!

And now we've got a circus you could sell tickets to, complete with spousal abuse, black widows and sideways stepmother bitch slaps. LMAO!!!

I don't know what it is but I am STILL laughing out loud at this. The sideways stepmother bitch slaps seems to be what is getting me the most lol! You are one creative, hilarious woman Addison!

sideways stepmother bitch slaps HAHAHAHAH!

Amber Maxwell says September 18, 2011

I am starting to wonder if Skyla is mentally unstable? For a teen she is a pretty confident hot mess even though everyone hates her. I understand that rage fuels her, but also seems to blind her to other things. (I think Marshall eluded to this as well…does this make me Team Marshall? Is there such a thing?). Don't get me wrong, I COMPLETELY love her character. I am wondering if all the angel blood in her mortal body has anything to do with it?!? Keep up the amazing work. I totally heart this series. Sending high kicks, butterfly tosses, pom poms, and resplendent vibrations.

AddisonMoore says September 18, 2011

squibbers09 – SO nice to see you here! I luv the obbessive creepy stalker in you! Glad you enjoyed WICKED.I'll be giving sneak peeks into VEX on my FB page on Tuesdays. There's a link to my page here on the left. Hope to see you there! And yes, time will totally fly by. Between Halloween and a birthday party for your daughter you will be a busy woman! Trust me, I know, I have four. Half my kids are older than me, πŸ˜‰ but my youngest just turned 10. We start discussing what she'll be for Halloween about January, and she changes her mind right up until the night before. It makes shopping for costumes a challenge. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says September 18, 2011

Bckygnzlz – I'm so glad you liked WICKED!!! Please join me for my Tuesdays teasers. I still don't know exactly how it will work, probably a sentence or two.

I think you called Candace a few posts back, too. Was that you? You guys are way too smart. I'm always afraid to point out that I do a LOT of foreshadowing, even regarding the end of the series because I'm afraid you'll figure it all out before hand, but then again you probably will anyway, lol!

OK, your questions;

1. The Transfer has a lot to do with the Counts. I can't answer the second half. We have a 'tour' of the facility in VEX.

2. The Landon body is… I can't tell you. It is a Landon, though.

3. Holden is never going away. Poor Skyla, and perhaps the rest of us.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Bckygnzlz says September 18, 2011

Ur awesome! I love u for at least pretending to answer ahahahaha!!! I'm looking forward to Tuesdays now!!!

AddisonMoore says September 18, 2011

Kristinab23 – Yes! I hope I cleared up Brielle's work situation and I always thought of you when I read it during my marathon edits!! I hope you enjoy the rest of WICKED. I had a ~blast~ writing it. I am also very much enjoying VEX because everything takes a turn in this novel, so much more than WICKED. It moves the entire series forward as far as the overall arc of the story goes. So excited! Don't forget to join me with Teaser Tuesdays on my FB page!!!

AddisonMoore says September 18, 2011

Danetra – Oh I love your team Marshall stance!!! I think with Gage he was honestly trying to protect her from very real danger (Chloe's threat), so I think his intent was never to be dishonest. Oh how tricky love can be. *sigh* A whole new dimension is added to Gage in VEX. Watch out Skyla.

AddisonMoore says September 18, 2011

Amber J. – I love your response to the weekend! WICKED indeed. πŸ˜‰ And I need to print out and frame this part; 1) nothing in Paragon is ever as it seems, and (2) Addison Moore knows exactly what she's doing. On those low writerly self-esteem days I will revert back to your wisdom.

Love your thoughts on the transportation of factions and for the most part you are correct. Supervising spirits and binding spirits are explored further in VEX, mostly the former.

And thank you for the nice words regarding my writing!! What I found most helpful with character building is to keep pushing through and writing down as many words as you can each day. Eventually each character will become frighteningly real to you.

My daughter once said, "Mom your characters are fake, stop talking about them like they're real.' And I said, ' They say they same thing about you.' πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says September 18, 2011

Kristinab23 – Oops I forgot to mention, I totally don't mind that you wrote that quote. I laughed at that, too. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says September 18, 2011

Amber Maxwell – Yes, Skyla is going through a very tough time, lol! This has all been an emotional challenge for her and things start heating up in a very real way in VEX. I suppose things can only get worse for her since she's the catalyst who will carry this series to the end. I've already written the end, so all of my writing is linear in that direction. Join me for the Tuesday tease! It's just a sentence or two, but I think it will be fun, and knowing me, I'll probably give too much away. Hopefully VEX will still be enjoyable.

Amber J. says September 18, 2011

I was SO glad to read your reply to Danetra about Gage. I find myself wondering about him after reading WICKED for a few reasons:

1. Gage has flown way too low under the radar in this series lol. All the drama seems to emanate from or happen to Skyla, Logan, Marshall, and just about everyone else on Paragon lol. He only gets into trouble because he's associated with Logan and Skyla. So it will be refreshing to see him be the center of all-hell-breaking-loose for once (hopefully) in VEX.

2. Gage and Logan seem to have traded places. When we first met them in ETHEREAL, Logan was the cool, confident Alpha male that captured Skyla's heart and Gage was the adorable Emo guy who Skyla only used as a substitute for Logan; but now Gage is the strong anchor in Skyla's life that possesses her mind, body, and soul (well, I'm glad he's taking his time about the "body" part lol) and Logan is desparate, grasping at straws, and forced to make bad decisions just to keep what little of Skyla he has left.
They've done a complete 180 and I didn't even realize this until now because the pacing of your character development has been so perfect, that their evolution fit seamlessly into the storylines, undetected (at least to me).

3. Gage never speaks in specifics about his role in the future – he's always so vague: he won't answer Skyla's question about their children, he didn't say if he was included in the vision of Skyla and Logan living past age 30, we don't even know what happens the second after he kisses the bride lol, or if that civil ceremony is really theirs. And Gage always speaks in infinities: "I will always be with you", "I will always love you", and that's kind of unsettling and slightly morbid πŸ™ I've noticed this since ETHEREAL so I was like I'm afraid to get attached to this character cause I don't know if he's going to make it to the end of the series, but he's so irresistible that I can't help but love him like everyone else does, and I'm glad he's still with us…for now lol.

Heather says September 19, 2011

Maybe Logan is just a very good faker. Remember Chloe had a BFF & BF in place for Skyla (and I never thought it was Ellis). Plus, IF Logan was actually getting mentored by Skylas dad I don't really see her dad going along with allowing her to be captured. Wow that sentence kind of got away from me.

Makes sense the counts would have soemthing like the transfer since kiddnapping skyla is on the agenda.
Question and comment: marshall says in Tremble that skylas dad was a friend to him but in wicked her dad kind of freaks when he hears about a Sector. Supposedly Marsall can't lie so what's the deal there?
Also, you'll be great at the teasers. You did it for the cover reveals πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says September 19, 2011

Amber J. – Yes, Gage gets to show a different side of himself in VEX. He's only human, well, partially at least. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says September 19, 2011

Heather – Regarding Skyla's father and Marshall, Marshall has been in the Ethereal plane up until Tremble, and Skyla's father was dead for two years. Does that make sense? When Skyla went to speak with her father after Thanksgiving he had still not met Marshall.

squibbers09 says September 19, 2011

Addison I am so glad you are gonna be doing teasers πŸ™‚ gives me something to look forward to each week! Anyway I had been wondering about skyla's dad and marshall also so when you said that about skyla's dad being dead for two years I was like "uh duh that makes perfect sense" lol!

Kayleigh says September 19, 2011

Hi Addison, so excited that you're going to be doing a Teaser Tuesday, will this be on here or on Facebook?

Can't wait for November to arrive. I'm slowly wishing my life away in anticipation for your books.

On another note, do you have any other series planned for the future? I know you're really really busy with Skyla's story and I don't want to push back the books but I really just can't get enough of your writing. So much so that I'm reading your comments on here every day. I know, stalker much?

Anyways! Love from the UK, I hope you come on a book tour over here one day. I'll be at the front of the queue.

AddisonMoore says September 19, 2011

squibbers09 – I'm glad I was able to answer it!

AddisonMoore says September 19, 2011

Kayleigh – Aw, you're so sweet! A book tour abroad or anywhere would be lovely!

The Tuesday tease will be on my FB page and if you click the FB link on the left it will take you right to it. =)

I do have another series planned! I'm so excited to get it out. I'm hoping to get it out just after VEX. I'll be writing it while my editor has VEX, so it won't impede on my VEX time at all. Also, over the months I'll be putting up some old work of mine as well, but I won't be advertising it, or announcing it on the blog because it's not YA. Most of it is the same flavor.

So glad you enjoyed WICKED! Thank you for your continued support!

Amber Maxwell says September 19, 2011

As long as it is snarky, I will read it. πŸ™‚

damselphish says September 19, 2011

I'm dying because it is still not available on B&N, I'm tempted just to get it on my Kindle for PC but then I have to sit in front of my computer. If it is as exciting as everyone says it is I know that I will not be able to stop reading and unfortunately I can't bring my PC with me like I can my Nook. I keep checking every couple of hours and have been since I saw that you published it. Please please B&N catch up with Amazon this is agonizing!

Logan Rutherford says September 19, 2011

Okay. I stayed up late last night, and finished WICKED. My reaction was this "……." I was speechless. I'm still Team Logan 100 percent. He told Skyla he was going to renounce him being a Celestra, and he knew that he had to do something to prove himself to the Counts. I know Logan would never do anything to hurt Skyla, but at the same time, he may have been lying this whole time. I'm so confused.

Could somebody provide me with some Celestra blood, and a supervising spirit so I can go two months into the future, and read VEX?

AddisonMoore says September 19, 2011

Amber Maxwell – Is there any other way? πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says September 19, 2011

Logan Rutherford – If you find that Celestra blood, let me know. I'll need a pint or so to pull of the same feat. πŸ˜‰ I'll be posting a sentence or two from VEX tomorrow on my FB page just for fun. The link is on the left side of the page here somewhere. Hope you'll check it out! And thank you for reading WICKED and for your continued support!

Sunshine1972 says September 19, 2011

I agree with Logan. I'm not sure if I am pissed at Logan or if I just need to wait until Vex comes out. Can't you make it come out any sooner???? Please, please, PLEASE! By the way I am team Logan…no team Gage…no team Marshal…oh I don't know who to root for. Love the books.

Anne McKee says September 19, 2011

I love, love this series. Your characters are so real to me.
I can just picture there being a real Paragon with these people out there. You are at the top of my list of favorite authors along with Casandra Clare and Stephanie Meyer! I can't wait to read everything you put out.
Thank you for giving me such a sweet escape from my everyday life problems.

Zooba Mama says September 19, 2011

I finished reading Burn at about 12 am,central time, last night and immediately cruised over to the amazon book store to see when the next book was coming, only to find Wicked had been released hours before…of course I bought it! Now I am chewing at the bit waiting for November and hoping we can just skip October. I love this series! (even though I have noticed a few spelling errors, like "layer" for "lair", and so on…). Can't wait!

Zooba Mama says September 19, 2011

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I know *exactly* what it's like to have your characters be so real you talk about them like they live just down the block…in fact, there are times I have been absolutely convinced my characters really DO live there…it drives me nuts!

Amanda says September 19, 2011

Addison,
I'm 60% in and will finish the rest this evening. So far, WOW! I found myself trying to read a few chapters during work this morning because I can't put it down! I will say though, as of right now I'm not too sure about Gage! He is making me a little mad!! Ah.. Marshall!… I just want to eat him up! I'll check back in once I'm done!

Sabrina says September 19, 2011

I just love this series and am so glad I found it right when it started. I have been following Addison every since..lol.

For those who want to discuss it, I started a Team Who question on GoodReads….Are you still on the same Team after Book 4?

http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/662089

Amber J. says September 19, 2011

Hey, just 2 (hopefully very quick lol) questions:

1. About supervising spirits: Do the supervising spirits that help Celestra light drive into the future have to make the journey with them, or can they remain either in the past or the future and just give the Celestra a blessing or something to travel into the future on their own?

2. We learned from Chloe's diary in BURN that Gage has a history of making his own visions come true. Will this truth be intertwined with secrets that come to the surface again in VEX?

Heather says September 20, 2011

Oooo, Amber J, fantastic questions!

Addison, that makes perfect sense about Marshall and Skyla's dad. I read the response and was all…well duh, lol. Happy writing this week! i can't wait for the teaser tomorrow. WOOHOO!

oh, also wanted put this out there and see what others thought–maybe it's Candace sending Skyla into The Transfer? (giving her more pieces to help Skyla figure out the puzzle?) Just a random possibility that popped in my head πŸ™‚

damselphish says September 20, 2011

Finally B&N caught up Wicked is available now YAY! I just downloaded it to my Nook and will more than likely get no sleep tonight I'm soooo excited!

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Sunshine1972 – I'm going to start something called teaser Tuesday over on my facebook page and give little snippets of VEX until it comes out each Tuesday thereafter. There's a link down on the left here. Hope to see you there! =)

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Anne McKee – Wow, just wow. Thank you for the very nice words. I'm humbled to be mentioned with that caliber of writers. Thank you!!! Join me Tuesday for a tiny snippet of VEX over at FB. The link is here on my blog. =)

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Zooba Mama – Thank you for reading! And, yikes! I did notice the layer and lair. I went over the files about a week ago. Sorry about that. Sometimes even with six pair of eyes I have roving over it, it is amazing what we can all miss!! So thank you for bringing that to my attention. =)

I love that you're a writer and that you, too, believe in your characters as much as I do in mine. It's like having friends for life.

I hope you'll join me tomorrow on my FB page (link to the left) I'll give a sentence or two of VEX out. πŸ˜‰ Happy writing and reading to you!

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Amanda , I can't wait to see what you think! Come back when you're done and I'll try to explain Gage's motive if it's not crystal clear. & Join me tomorrow as I give a tease of VEX over at my FB page. Thank you SO much for being a great supporter!!!

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Amber J. – Hi Amber! Marshall will gladly answer your first question in VEX (he explains this among other things to Skyla) I'm not playing coy, I really do answer a bunch of real questions in VEX. πŸ˜‰ And I don't recall that part of BURN, but, then, I am tired and overloaded with sushi, so my brain may not be registering it. I will check the MS and see what I can find.

Tomorrow I'm giving a tiny sneak peek into Vex on FB. =)

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Sabrina, you have been a great supporter and I love that! I can't thank you enough. I really can't wait to share my epic news with you guys!!! Hopefully that will be my next blog post.

**And I would love it if everyone would join your goodreads discussion!!!! Can't wait to read everyones thoughts and opinions there. Thank you for beginning that thread!

Tomorrow is my facebook sneak peek sentence (or two) into VEX. Can't wait for that either! =)

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Heather – You're welcome. I'll answer anything I can. And BTW, I always love your thoughts!

Tomorrow is the Tuesday tease over at my FB page! I can't thank you enough for the suggestion!!!!! I'll try not to blow it. πŸ˜‰ See you there!

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

damselphish – Yes! I saw that, too. I'm so happy that it arrived alive. I really hope you'll enjoy it and please come back and share any thoughts you might have. If you get a chance stop by my FB page tomorrow and read a tiny tease of VEX or better yet, you might want to wait until you finish WICKED, lol! It might really be a spoiler for you. No, really, it probably won't be. Stop by and check it out. The link to my FB page is on the left here. =) ~*happy reading*~!

Sunshine1972 says September 20, 2011

You will be seeing me there on Teaser Tuesdays. My sister was the one who turned me on to these books, and I am so glad she did. These are fun too read and you always keep me guessing. I love that. Fabulous work and can't wait to read more.

Amanda says September 20, 2011

Ok Addison! I finsihed last night!! AHH!! Ok, firt things first, I LOVED it! That ending! OH.MY.GOD! You love giving your readers a jaw dropping ending!!

My thoughts, without giving too much away for those who have not yet finished… First up, Gage. I understand his motive, but I didn't like it, lol! I really like him, but I think his
"relationship" with Chloe turned me off in this book.

Chloe- What a WICKED girl! I found my self talking to Skyla saying GET HER, haha!!

Logan… Uhhh ohh!! I heart Logan so much!! He earned a lot of brownie points in this book, because I thought he was so sweet to Skyla…until the end! What is up with that! He better be one good actor!! I have this vision to what is going to happen in the opening of Vex with Logan and Demetri that I can only cross my fingers I am correct! I don't think I can handle him this way!!

Marshall… Ahh, what can I say… He makes every scene he is in so much better! I can't wait to see more of him in Vex! I'm hoping we get more visions in the next book. I like the visions!!

Heather says September 20, 2011

Mmmm…sushi. I'm trying to remember that part from Burn too…deets please?

Someone else mentioned Gage never really telling her details about what he sees. Gage did give her specifics in Wicked about their wedding (in front of a judge and yes he saw Skyla's face).

Also, everything we read is from Skyla's POV. So she's the only one whose motives/ thought/ etc…that we truly know. Everything else is just her observations or impressions which given her crazy brain could be way off πŸ˜‰

Addison, I'll happily send you any other brilliant ideas that i steal from others. I read and stalk you authors way too much. πŸ˜‰ Maybe I should just start a book blog…indie YA authors only…hmmm…

Amber J. says September 20, 2011

Heather – the post made me crave shrimp tempura rolls too lol.

But I was the one that said Gage never speaks in specifics:
β€œI saw us together, we were facing the judge and he said, I now pronounce you man and wife.”
β€œDid you see my face?”
β€œWhen you turned to kiss me. You whispered I love you.”
But he doesn't say they actually said "I do" and they could just be witnesses at Drake and Brielle's wedding or something. But more importantly he won't tell her when she asks about their children, and he didn't include himself in that vision of her and Logan living past 30. He's always so vague about his role in the future.

And I was referring to Chloe saying in BURN that Gage foresaw her secret room being covered with butterflies and then he came over and made them create butterflies and stick them all over the wall.

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Sunshine1972 – I hope you enjoyed the tease! And please thank your sister for me! I can't thank people enough for word of mouth. It is invaluable. So thank you both!

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Hi Amanda, I'm so glad you enjoyed WICKED! There is tons of Marshall in VEX. He and Skyla are interwoven through several plot lines. I don't want to say too much about Gage and Logan's motives, but they are both a little rougher versions of themselves in VEX. Or maybe the word I'm looking for is driven.

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Heather – If you ever decide to start that blog, let me know! And, I think you have brilliant ideas. I hope you liked the tease! I had a super busy day yesterday, so I literally was going through the manuscript at midnight. I pulled those lines from page one. I guess I will have enough to stretch for weeks. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says September 20, 2011

Amber J. – Oh yes, yes!!! I thought the same thing when I was writing that. And, I think Skyla once wondered about self-fulfilling prophecies regarding Gage. (Gosh, I cannot even remember if that made it into one of the books or if I deleted it. This is my brain on no sleep, lol!) Please forgive.

Just a side note, (that I thought you might enjoy) I've already written the end of the series and I always write towards those final scenes. And I love to heavily foreshadow. πŸ˜‰

Heather says September 21, 2011

Amber J-saying I do would actually come before being pronounced man and wife, at least it did at my wedding πŸ˜‰ so I think that vision is probably accurate. I agree with the implication that Gage is not going to make it given that he won't confirm whether or not he will be living to a ripe old age, which makes me super sad. Also, if I remember correctly. Gage hasn't lied to skyla. So while he may be withholding info or flat out refusing to answer. I think the things he tells her are true.

And, I get what you're talking about now about the self-fulfilling prophecy, but if you'll remember in Burn, Skyla tried to change a vision and couldn't as well. But maybe you were meaning visions Gage sees come true because he makes them come true?

Addison, holy cow, woman. If that's just a couple quotes from the first page we are in for quite the ride! Between, you and Tammara, Tuesday are going to be so good! Her teaser quote from 3? weeks ago was delicious. Graham could give Gage a run for his money. πŸ˜‰ I'll let you know about the blog–may have to pick your brain for an authors pov. Been toying with the idea for a while now as I have a ridiculous number of books on my Kindle app. I'm afraid the hubby may cut me off soon!

Amber J. says September 21, 2011

Heather – Yeah, I was basically saying that Gage's visions are iffy, because we don't know if he's seeing things that were meant to happen or if he's seeing things that he will make happen. Remember: "Chloe’s diary is shaping my feelings for Gage, which, in turn, will shape our future, which, in turn, will make his prophecy come to fruition." So his prophecy of them getting married was in a way set in motion by him when he told Chloe he was waiting for Skyla and she wrote that in the diary that Skyla would eventually read and make her love him and want to marry him.
And although I've never been married, I know the "I do" comes first lol, but that's my point, exchanging vows is the only way we could know for sure that it's their wedding, and that Gage's vision is actually legit.

And so yes Addison, you were right, Sklya does wonder about Gage's prophecies πŸ™‚
Also, I was wondering if Skyla will actually have to make a choice of which 1 of the 3 she ends up with? Or will circumstances/fate give her an easy way out and eliminate 2 of them and leave 1 man left standing?

Heather says September 21, 2011

LOL Amber. I don't think she'll answer that one no matter how much we want πŸ˜‰

Cheri22 says September 21, 2011

I just purchased the next book and so excited!! not sure I am going to be able to sleep tonight!! Dying to read it!!

AddisonMoore says September 21, 2011

Heather – Let me know about the blog, I'd be happy to help out any way I can. =)

AddisonMoore says September 21, 2011

Amber J. – Heather's right, my lips are sealed. πŸ˜‰ But I will say that I think about what happens at the end of the series on a daily basis. It makes me wonder if there's ever truly an end.

AddisonMoore says September 21, 2011

Cheri22 – Have fun reading! I hope you enjoy your stay in Paragon. Drop by and let me know your thoughts. I'd love to hear them.

Amy says September 23, 2011

Oh, my! I've been mostly on FB commenting and missed a huge stream of excellent thoughts here :). Thinking that Gage is the well planted BF… That kills me and made me think. I love that A.M. admitted to even foreshadowing the end. That's got me thinking, too. I know that VEX will be here in November (and that's a hard wait); however, I'm more concerned about when book 6 & 7(?) will be out. I must know how it all ends, even if it will keep us thinking about whether it really ever ends…

As I've said before: AMAZING JOB & BRILLIANT WORK! You are rocking this series and I will definitely be on the look out for other books penned by you. Especially, non-YA that's snarky ;)~

Mel-B says September 23, 2011

Are you this funny in real life or do you just write funny? I love how sarcastic everything is. I hope that's the intention or else that was probably an insult, in which case WHOOPSIES I'm sorry!

Love your characters!

Every word out of Tad's mouth makes me laugh because I can totally imagine the douche-bag inside of him. Right Lizbeth?

I will die a little inside having to wait for Vex. Let that be you're motivation, keeping your fans from certain death.

Love Love love the brain candy that is the Celestra seires!

Amber J. says September 23, 2011

Amy – I don't want to believe it either πŸ™ but there's only one person besides Chloe that really really really wanted Skyla to come to Paragon and would therefore have incentive to help Chloe mastermind that whole plan. I bet he never foresaw Chloe traveling into the future and trying to kill his girl though. Please, Addison tell us we're wrong about this lol.

Also, I was a little confused about the War(s). Is the Nephilim faction war that Skyla started still on, or has it been replaced with this Sector v. Fem war that Marshall is in? It was probably explained somewhere in WICKED but I missed it :/

Bckygnzlz says September 23, 2011

No!! I refuse to believe that Amber J! I love Gage but it all makes sense now that u put it that way! Ugh! Why couldn't I see it before! It all seems so obviously clear now! A.M please say it isn't true! Say we have it all wrong!

AddisonMoore says September 23, 2011

Amy – Thank you for your kind words regarding my writing. I'm super glad you're enjoying the Celestra series. I am loving all of the theories!!!

AddisonMoore says September 23, 2011

Mel-B – I'd like to think I'm funny in real life, but if the fact that no one is laughing when I'm around is any indication, the odds are not int my favor. πŸ˜‰ My husband often says he laughs on the inside. I love dry humor and I see sarcasm as possibly the best coping mechanism ever. πŸ˜‰ I think that's why I've read every single Jen Lancaster book because snark reigns supreme!

AddisonMoore says September 23, 2011

Amy – that last part of my comment to Mel-B was also for you! "I think that's why I've read every single Jen Lancaster book because snark reigns supreme!"

AddisonMoore says September 23, 2011

Amber J. – the wars are intertwined. (OK, I just wrote a bunch more stuff then had to delete it all because I was giving too much away. Forgive! I hope that one sentence is enough. Just know there is a little bit more going on concerning that.) πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says September 23, 2011

Bckygnzlz – My lips are sealed. I do enjoy all of the theories!!!

Amy says September 24, 2011

Oh! If only you slipped up and pushed the publish button on the too much info regarding the intertwined wars ;)~

I'm on my re-read and will have to pay special attention to these parts. I would assume Marshall & the Sectors have an invested interest in Skyla's war, since if she "wins" or dwindles down the Counts enough it would sway the end results of both wars. Also, he said all it takes in one Celestra, implying her, right?!? I'm going off of memory here for the scene right before she's attacked on school grounds and they (Skyla & Gage) are accused of causing the big fire.

Amy says September 24, 2011

Amber J. – I see what you are implying about Chloe and Gage working together, but that brings up so many questions:
– Do you think that Chloe told him the full plan from the start?
– Do you think she is using him without his knowledge?
– Do you think Gage knew all along that Skyla's blood would resurrect Chloe, since he predicted she would return like a butterfly coming out of it's cocoon?
– Argh! I cannot even vocalize all my thoughts on this.

Little Miss Priss says September 24, 2011

Yet another winner! My only complaint is that you're going to give me a heart attack with all these crazy intense endings!! I haven't read the comments yet, but just curious how long until Vex is ready?!?! Sorry, patience is not my strength! Have a good weekend!

Amber J. says September 24, 2011

Amy – I don't think Chloe is ever completely honest with anyone lol, so I think she told him just enough to get him to help. He's smart so he should have realized that once Skyla was on Paragon he could back out of the deal and let Chloe stay dead. That's why I believe him when he says he truly forgot to tell his father they no longer wanted to resurrect Chloe, but I also think this is one of those instances where his vision was legit and there's nothing anyone can do to change the future.

BUT, here's 2 things to really think about:
1. Towards the end of BURN, Skyla hears both Gage and Logan in the forest when she's chasing Chloe, and obviously they had to light drive together because Gage can't do it by himself, so if they came together, why is Logan the only one that actually ends up helping Skyla kill Chloe? Why did Gage disappear so conveniently? Hmmm lol.

2. In ETHEREAL Logan said Gage told him Skyla was coming to Paragon the day before she arrived. So why wasn't Gage possessive of Skyla the way you would expect someone who's been waiting for her and plotting to get her here to act? He just let Logan make a move on the girl he knows is supposed to be his? If Gage loved Skyla before he even met her, there's no way he would just let some other dude have her UNLESS he had foreseen that Skyla is going to end up with Logan anyway, when everything is said and done .

AddisonMoore says September 25, 2011

Amy – Yes, you are right in regards to the faction wars. =)

AddisonMoore says September 25, 2011

Little Miss Priss – Yay! I'm glad you enjoyed WICKED. No heart attacks allowed. πŸ˜‰ VEX is scheduled to come out at some point in November. I'll be giving teasers on my FB page on Tuesdays. (The link is on the left sidebar) There's also one from last Tuesday if you're interested. Enjoy!

AddisonMoore says September 25, 2011

Amber J. _ I always enjoy reading your thoughts and those of others that sift over theories. Too fun!

Krista B. says September 25, 2011

Finally got to read Wicked even though I had downloaded it the day you released it!!
OMG – I can't believe it! Amazing – I loved it. It was thrilling and emotional – so many twists and turns! Marshall still rubs me the wrong way – he is just too selfish for Skyla – as he points, out if he had to choose, he would always choose himself. But the ending! Oh my!! I will be on pins and needles until November! πŸ™‚ Great job as always!

AddisonMoore says September 25, 2011

Krista B. – I'm super glad you enjoyed it! I hope you'll check out my FB on Tuesdays where I'll be giving a few lines from VEX each week.

November will be here before we know it! At least for me. πŸ˜‰

Cheri22 says September 27, 2011

is it just my kindle, or is there a reason for some of the blank pages between the other pages?

I am totally loving this book!! Finding myself wanting to put the world on hold so I can just read the book until its done!! I am halfway there!

Can't wait for the next installment!

AddisonMoore says September 27, 2011

Hi Cheri22 – Unfortunately it's not your Kindle. Did you purchase it recently? I know that the first week or so it was still wonky. I went back and tried to adjust the file and I'm hoping it worked. Sometimes the file convert looks normal, but when you view it on Kindle it's a little strange. If it was a newer purchase, I'll go back and try to solve the issue again. I"m SO sorry! I'm curious to your answer and if the issue was just towards the back.

And, I'm so glad you enjoyed WICKED!!! I hope you'll join me Tuesday on FB for another tease of VEX. =) There's a link on the sidebar here.

Tamie says September 27, 2011

Hi There, Im a new comer to the series. Can I say the Addison, you have put the passion back into life for me so Thankyou. I do however belive that these books deser to be put on the shelves in every book store. I sure as hell know i would place then with Pride on my book shelf. Do you have any intention to have then printed and bound?
Again thank for the amazingness.
Tamie

AddisonMoore says September 27, 2011

Tamie – I can't thank you enough for reading my books and for letting me know how much you're enjoying the series. I really am humbled that you feel they are worthy of print distribution. I'm hoping that will happen one day. In the meantime I am looking into getting my books into print at least so that they're available on Amazon. If you're interested I'm posting teasers of the new book in the series, VEX, over on my FB page. The link is on the left sidebar of my blog. Hope to see you there! And thanx for making my day!!! =)

Kayleigh says September 27, 2011

Hi, me again! just stopped by to read others comments and also to BEGGGG for Logan's innocence. Please please, don't let him be a bad guy! I have such high hopes for him.

As much as I love Gage, part of me is still thinks that Skyla and Logan have amazing chemistry and he really does love her. Please don't let it all have been fake πŸ™

End of begging session. xx

AddisonMoore says September 27, 2011

Kayleigh – The world is cruel, but I am not. πŸ˜‰

Heather says September 27, 2011

Gah, Addison! That was a semi-direct answer and could now throw off the theory-crafting πŸ˜‰ Of course the tease today had me cheering for Gage; laughing at Skyla's response to Logan and semi-rooting for Marshall! I'd love to see M kick some ass! WOO HOO!

Sunshine1972 says September 27, 2011

Kayleigh, I agree with you. I love all three guys, but I still have my hopes up for Logan. It does seem real what they have. Marshall cracks me up and I love him, but I have a feeling he has bigger and better things happening with him. As for Gage, I am not sure of his intentions yet. Oh if only Addison would let us in on the secret.(Yes that is a little begging) I am going back and rereading the books to see if I can pick up on any foreshadowing and finally figure it out. Thanks for keep me guessing! Oh LOVE the teasers as well!

Amber J. says September 27, 2011

Awesome Tuesday teasers!!
Seeing Marshall's statement reminds me how much I liked his scene with Skyla at the end of WICKED, so I hope he takes out all of his enemies with a recurve bow and an arrow πŸ™‚

random question (as always lol): I noticed the reference to Cherubim in the vision that Sklya has with the guys having the heads of certain animals, but I was wondering if the Caelestis are your interpretation of Principalities or Powers, and if Sectors are based on Dominions in angelology or are they your own creation?

AddisonMoore says September 28, 2011

Heather – Oh no, there's no wrench in the theory-crafting, I promise! It's a long twisted road until the end. Carry on. =) And thanx for the teasers suggestion! It's really turning out to be a blast for me.

AddisonMoore says September 28, 2011

Sunshine1972 – Ah, yes, the secrets… where to begin, there are oh, so many… πŸ˜‰ I'm glad you're enjoying the teasers! I'm having fun with them as well.

AddisonMoore says September 28, 2011

Amber J. – Your random question is right on track. I'm playing fast and loose with the powers that be, figuratively and most likely literally. πŸ˜‰ I'll do my best to dodge lightning bolts when they get hurled in my direction.

Danetra says September 28, 2011

Argh! I can't take it, Addison! I am dying here! It's not even October yet. You would think that Teaser Tuesdays would pacify me but they don't. I even read two new books from other series I am following. One irritated me (being two predictable and lovey dovey) and the other only slightly satisfied me for a few hours because they are not Celestra. They don't make me think obsessively and try to figure out how it all ends. University starts for me next week (Veterinary Medicine), in which I will need to study/read a ton but I don't even think that will help me. As I am reading about boring physiology, immunology and cardiology; I will be thinking where is the class on celestrology. Your books are just that good. I can't even remember how many times I've read the series over again. And I just can't do it again until shortly before the release of the Vex otherwise I will drive myself insane because I will be waiting and waiting. You have anything else you've written that you are going to put out there for us to read. That just might help. Or a great suggestion of something you've read and loved like we love your books?

AddisonMoore says September 28, 2011

Danetra – I can't thank you enough for your continued support! I had to laugh about the Celestrology class. That would be a class I would love to take myself. =) If it makes you feel better about the wait, VEX is panning out to be the longest book to date, so there will be much more time spent on Paragon. With every manuscript the books have gotten progressively longer and longer. I seem to have more to say and the characters have more to do with each passing edition. I did answer a lot of questions in VEX. SKyla meets her real mom and confronts Lizbeth. She learns a little more of Marshall's intentions, and Chloe and her schemes are brought to life as well. But alas, all is never as it seems on Paragon and Skyla's world gets even crazier. The beginning of VEX is my all time favorite opening, which probably means nothing other than I like where the scene goes. I hope you'll enjoy it when it finally hits the e-shelves.

Cheri22 says September 28, 2011

Kinda wishing I was your best friend right now, so that I would be able to get an advanced copy of your next book! lol.

I guess I will settle for stalking your facebook page for the snippets and announcement of the next books release:)

AddisonMoore says September 28, 2011

Cheri22 – You're so sweet! The book is in no shape for anyone to see right now, lol! Trust me, you wouldn't want it. I'm pouring on the love, so hopefully it will shape up soon.

What I'm really hoping is that before VEX is released I can share my news of ~*epic*~ proportions!!! I am just dying to spill. Think big, and then think bigger!

Amy says September 30, 2011

*epic*?!? Wow, this sounds really big and exciting πŸ™‚ No other hints? You're a tease – LOL!

AddisonMoore says September 30, 2011

Amy – *epic* HUGE ~aMaZiNg~ news to come… πŸ˜‰ I would do anything if I could share right now.

Danetra says September 30, 2011

Hey Addison – just got online to see if you posted your good news yet. I was beginning to wonder if you forgot you were planning on telling us. But I can see from the previous comments you still remember. So thinking big – I wa think you have a publisher and the books will be available in print. Thinking bigger – your going on tour. But *epic* – could there be a movie? Well not being a writer that's all I could come up with for good news for a writer. So guess I will have to check back again. Will you post it as a separate topic?

AddisonMoore says September 30, 2011

Hi Danetra – I like how you're thinking. I will most certainly post as a new topic. All the confetti and screaming you see and hear that day will most likely be from me. πŸ˜‰

Heather says October 1, 2011

Ooo…love the "sneak peak" at what's coming in Vex re…the moms, chloe and Marshall.
You're kinda like JK Rowling with them getting progressively longer and longer. I don't think we'll have a problem reading them.
Can't WAIT for the big news and am so, so glad that you are willing to do the TTs. They are a blast!

AddisonMoore says October 2, 2011

Heather – Your comment gave me a big smile. πŸ˜‰ I'm glad to know the girth of VEX will be appreciated. I do hope my news can come out very soon. I have high hopes for October. =)

Logan Rutherford says October 2, 2011

Hey Addison! Just saw on Twitter that you're finished with VEX, and now starting on edits! Congratulations! I cannot wait until it's out!

Heather says October 2, 2011

Ok, theory crafters, some points to bring up after reading Tremble again:

1) Marshall swears on himself not to hurt Skyla (this is after the arm thing) and says it's a big deal for him to swear that. We also know he can't lie. Thought this was interesting in light of the Wicked ending.

2) I know there's been discussion about the diary influencing Skyla's feelings for Gage and thiught it was interesting to note that Gage didn't want Skyla to read the diary.

OK. Discuss πŸ™‚

Amber J. says October 2, 2011

Heather – In BURN Skyla and Gage discuss that he didn't want her to read the diary because she would see he was waiting for her. I think he thought it would creep her out, but it just made her love him more. But I do still think it shows us that Gage can make his own visions come true.

I'm not sure if Marshall can't lie. In TREMBLE Logan and Skyla have a telepathic conversation:
Logan: If Marshall said it, then it must be true
Skyla: So Sectors can’t lie?
Logan: He can if he wants, although it’s never referred to as lying. They’d refer to him as a deceiving spirit.

But here's something else I was wondering: Why does Logan not fear Marshall the way everyone else does? In TREMBLE Skyla is startled when Logan refers to Marshall as a 'thing' and Logan looks "pissed" when Skyla tells him Marshall showed her 2 more Counts. And Logan was quick to deck Marshall in the face in WICKED. It seems like they're familiar with each other, which makes me think he is the supervising spirit Logan has been working with all along, since his treble in ETHEREAL.

…and am I the only one that hears Marshall speaking with a WASP or British accent lol?

As always, any insight into any of our crazy theories that would be greatly appreciated πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says October 2, 2011

Logan Rutherford- Hi Logan! Thank you! I'm putting on the polish now. VEX is a monster at 100k It's the biggest Celestra book yet. I'm curious if it will shrink or grow in edits. We shall see. πŸ˜‰

Heather – Amber J. – carry on ladies! It's always fun to peek in on your thoughts!

Ariel says October 3, 2011

Heather and Amber J, in reference to Gage and the diary, I think he really wanted her to read it, and that's why he was telling her not to, knowing that telling her not to read it would make her want to read it more. I think that was one of his ways to try and make his vision happen.

Heather as far as Marshall swearing on himself not to hurt Skyla, I think that's why none of the arrows hit her. He had to punish her for betraying his trust (by telling anyone that he was a sector), and he did that by shooting the arrows at her, but he never broke his promise because none of them hit her.

At this point I'm not really sure who I want Skyla to end up with… Logan and Gage have both either lied to her or stretched the truth way too much and Marshall only seems to want her for selfish reasons. Maybe she will end up with someone else all together.

My question for you guys is this: what do you make of Brielle? Do you think she's against Skyla? If so do you think from the beginning or from the time Chloe comes back?

Bckygnzlz says October 3, 2011

I've always questioned Brielle. She was very quick to befriend Skyla but when Michelle and the Bitch Squad started causing trouble she was never around to help Skyla out. Then there was the part where she found the piece of broken glass and warned Skyla not to trust anyone. Idk but she's always seemed a bit off to me.

Sunshine1972 says October 3, 2011

This question is for Addison…I am wondering if in Vex we will find out if Logan was really going back and talking to Skyla's dad, and if he was, what was happening between the two of them?
Heather and Amber J, love the theroy talk! You both bring up great questions, hopefully the awesome Addison will get us some answers soon. I can only hope that it is early Nov!!

Danetra says October 3, 2011

Ariel – I think Brielle has known all along. She immediately becomes best friends with Skyla, she is the one that convinced Skyla to go to Marshall's on the day that Chloe slits her throat, she tells Skyla she maybe swimming with the person that did it and then another time she is sitting on Skyla's bed and ask her if she is afraid of her. Keeping in mind that when Skyla first showed up that she was so heart broken about losing her best friend Chloe. Only thing I can't figure out is why Brielle and Chloe aren't immediately best buds once Chloe comes back.
All this thinking back to the books makes me want to read them again but unfortunately school has started again so that is very unlikely. But Yay! for all of you that can and then post interesting theories/questions on here.
Also Logan's comment about Twitter made me real disappointed that I haven't tapped into all ways to stock Addison on the status of the books/updates. I will have to get on top of it. Love finding out that Vex is finished and in the polishing stages.

Logan Rutherford says October 3, 2011

Addison – 100k?! That's pretty awesome. The bigger the better! The longer it is, the longer it'll take me to read, and the less time I'll have to wait until book 6!

From the way it sounds, VEX is going to advance in the overall plot, and give us some answers, so I cannot wait! It's probably going to be my favorite. But then again, I always like the next one better than the last, and they're all super good! Ahhhh! Can we please just skip October? I like Thanksgiving better than Halloween anyways…

Amber J. says October 3, 2011

I agree with Logan (the real one, not the fictional one lol): if VEX's size is any indication, then we will be getting some real answers to all of our questions soon — in a perfect world, "soon" would be Halloween lol (which would be a great release date since VEX is in the paranormal genre lol). I do have two final questions though:

1. In WICKED Skyla & Gage have a convo:
Skyla: Are you sending me an invitation?
Gage: Oh, I'm definitely sending you an invitation?
But then later on they have this exchange:
Skyla: First, I want to thank you for sending the invitation. I thought I was going to have to send it myself.
Gage: What invitation?
Skyla: You know, the body invite.
Gage: Body invite?
Skyla: So did you bring protection?
Gage: Against what?

I am so confused about this situation; what did Gage really mean if it wasn't what Skyla meant?

2. Logan and Skyla have this convo:
Logan: So how are things with you and Gage?
Skyla: Great. Except for, you know, Chloe. I have no idea what's going on.
Logan: I do. Holden the friendly ghost ring a bell?

Then they go on to talk about how Chloe is controlling Gage by threatening to tell the police Skyla killed Holden and that they need to prove Chloe killed Emerson. But since we find out it all had to do with Marshall, what does this conversation really mean? Is Logan trying to use Skyla to absolve himself of any wrongdoing in Emerson's murder or does he know something we don't know?

*Crossing my fingers, hoping A. Moore can answer some of this lol*

AddisonMoore says October 3, 2011

Ariel – Bckygnzlz – Danetra – Still loving all the theory crafting! Craft away! And yes, VEX is being polished and shined!!!! =)

AddisonMoore says October 3, 2011

Sunshine1972 – Yes, in VEX we cover the reason why Logan either really does go, or claims to go back to Skyla's father without her. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says October 3, 2011

Logan Rutherford – For sure VEX is a behemoth. It does advance the overall plot by leaps and bounds. And yes, probably some time around Thanksgiving for the delivery of the book. Still loving your name!

AddisonMoore says October 3, 2011

Amber J. – Yes, I can for sure answer those two! Gage simply thought he was 'inviting' Skyla to a private birthday celebration where the two of them could finally exchange gifts and was startled when he realized Skyla thought it had far more sexual implications than it did. In WICKED Skyla was the sexual aggressor. Things might change in VEX. πŸ˜‰

The part about Logan and SKyla's exchange; At that point, I don't think she or Logan realized that Chloe actually was holding the fact that Marshall was a Sector over Skyla. Instead, they believed it was something far more simple like the fact she had killed Holden and confessed it to Chloe at the dinner party at the Bishop's house. Chloe had far bigger blackmail involved.

If I've continued to confuse you please let me know and I'll try to clarify. =)

Amber Avery says October 3, 2011

I'm not much of a blog commenter (as you know I'm a twitter nerd) but have to say after reading through your comments I'm excited to see Vex is 100k!! More time in Paragon is always welcomed! Haha

You deserve so much success Addison! You are not only talented, but a great person!!

Can't wait to delve into Vex!!! Ahhhhh

AddisonMoore says October 3, 2011

Amber Avery – You are so sweet! Thanx for stopping by. I hope you pop in often. =)

Heather says October 4, 2011

Amber, I think he punched Marshall just because he wanted to and HAD been wanting to since Tremble.

Trebles have to have a supervising spirit? Ellis could do a treble in Tremble (never ending pot supply) and so I just assumed either Gage or Logan was the one doing the treble in Ethereal, especially since it didn't last very long.

I remember that convo abt Marshall between Logan and Skyla but because they have continued to call him a Sector and not a deceiving spirit I went with the whole he can't lie theory. And to his credit (or not) Marshall has done everything he said he was going to do; good and bad.

Ariel-great point about the arrows not hitting her. We know Skyla can't run that fast (or not clumsily) πŸ˜‰

Love the Paragon talk, peeps!

Danetra says October 5, 2011

Hey you guys – so I am suppose to be studying but instead find myself rereading Wicked (ssh don't tell) and I noticed somethings.
I don't think Logan is bad. Rereading him going with Skyla to see her father, them going to see his parents and then light driving to kill the counts. He seems real genuine and truthful not just to her but to her father and her parents. Also weird thing I noticed that when they are visiting her father, Skyla ask if he can visit her. Her father "gives a passing glance at Logan and lingers there a moment before redirecting his solemn gaze". Makes me wonder if Logan had already been visiting her father or if he was planning something in his mind to work with Logan. You guys have any thoughts there or just think it was nothing?
Regarding Marshall: I noticed he called her the women of his house ("As the woman of the house, I'll gladly let you supervise") and his wife when he told "try not to have such lewd thoughts around me regarding the pretty one. It's infuriating to see my wife engage in carnal relations with someone other than myself."
Also noticed that when Marshall tells Skyla her mother wasn't pleased that he wanted to procreate with her and then Skyla said "She can find comfort in the fact that it's not going to happen", Marshall very seriously tells her "Something is going to happen between us, Skyla. I found that all very interesting and am wondering if Addison is foreshadowing there.
And I agree with someone who mentioned above that perhaps Gage is going to die. His poem says, "I'll stand beside you until I am driven, into the light so brilliant – into the light sublime." I am thinking the light that is so brilliant and sublime has to be him going to heaven.
Anyways I am going to go now and try to be a good student. But I'll check back to see what you guys think. And feel free to comment Addison – I am sure you have the best ideas/theories (knowledge) of these areas. But I won't hold my breath as I am sure you can't comment on any of this.

Amber J. says October 5, 2011

I told myself I wasn't going to ask anymore questions and I'm trying to my best to sit and wait patiently for VEX (is it November yet? lol), but…

Danetra – I was the one that said Gage's statements and behavior make it seem like he isn't going to make it to the end of the series. Like in WICKED when Skyla makes him promise that he will never leave or lie to her, and he says, "There is nothing on this planet, in heaven or hell, that can keep me from you." Maybe that will even explain why he becomes more aggressive in VEX, since he knows his time is limited. And I like the point you bring up about Logan; I hope he's been visiting with Skyla's father since he discovered he could light drive safely in TREMBLE. And Skyla ending up with Marshall would be an awesome twist =)

Heather – I was trying to say Marshall can lie, he just hasn't lied yet; he's remained true to his word. And Logan told Skyla in WICKED that the Counts could catch up with them if they trebled but they would need a supervising spirit to do that.

As always, hoping Addison can shed some light on this. (It's starting to feel like we've sort of hijacked your blog with all the theory talk, sorry if that's the case.)

AddisonMoore says October 5, 2011

Heather, Danetra, Amber J., carry on! I'm enjoying the view from the sidelines. πŸ˜‰ I completely love the theory crafting. I don't mind one bit, Amber J. I promise! =)

Heather says October 5, 2011

Danetra! Dang girl now I have to go back and find those parts!! Fantastic observations. Will throw in my 2 cents again after πŸ˜‰

Amber J. says October 11, 2011

Just have to say, another awesome Teaser Tuesday!! Gage in the shower and a deflowered Skyla (allegedly lol), just wow!

I'm so looking forward to bad-ass Gage in VEX, I've been waiting for him since we got a little taste of him when he kept almost getting into fights and when he was just straight-up rude to Logan when he tried to give Skyla the car in BURN lol.

So if Gage gets more aggressive, does that mean Marshall will become more sweet and sensitive lol?

And I can't help but remember that an announcement was made on Sept. 1 that there would be some really super exciting news in about a month, and it's Oct. 11 lol πŸ˜€ soo….

AddisonMoore says October 12, 2011

Amber J. – Yes! I am SO ready to pop with my news, but alas I have to wait a tiny bit more. I might explode from the pressure of it all. Messy, right?

Gage is for sure far more amped up for Skyla in VEX. And no Marshall remains his hawt, sarcastic, egocentric self. And poor Logan. He can't seem to catch a break. But does he deserve one? Only VEX will tell. πŸ˜‰

Heather says October 12, 2011

Pffffffft Logan. He doesn't need a break. He had his chance, the chicken. πŸ™‚ (wonder how many fights I just started) CAN NOT WAIT for Vex and NaNo may just have to take a backseat when Vex finally comes out in November.

Ready to hear the good news! If we guess correctly will you confirm? πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says October 13, 2011

Hi Heather, lol about the fights! Although I am glad Logan has some fans of his own. πŸ˜‰ And, yay to Nano! I'll be knee deep in edits, but I'd love to cheat on VEX and play along if I'm able. I guess time will tell.

I'm still hoping to share my good news soon. I'm hopeful for October. Right, Universe? October???

Logan Rutherford says October 13, 2011

Awww man! I totally forgot that Nano was happening the same month as VEX is coming out! Oh well. I'll just us VEX to help me get through Nano. One chapter of my Nano book = One chapter of VEX. Sounds like a good plan to me!

I cannot wait until VEX!

AddisonMoore says October 13, 2011

Hi Logan! I'm pretty sure VEX will be out towards the end-ish of November, but I do luv me some NaNo! I'm so hoping to participate this year even though I'll be spit shinning VEX. Even so I'll cheer you on, write, Logan, write!!!

And I luv you VEX reward system!!!! To funny! =)

Amber J. says October 14, 2011

Umm, I guess this isn't specifically a Celestra related question lol, but I was wondering if you work on two or more series simultaneously? And if you do, do you think it helps the quality and development of both series? Or do you wait until you've successfully put a series/project to bed before you start another?

…And I just discovered the whole NaNoWriMo thing from seeing it mentioned on here, but I'm not quite sure what it is, so if anyone could briefly explain, that would be awesome πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says October 14, 2011

Amber J. – I do, but rarely. Right now I'm working mostly on VEX, but when I need a tiny breather work on my new series, which I'm still hopeful to release soon. As far as helping or hindering the two books– I think it helps. Sometimes my brain just needs a tiny vacation, and it supplies just that while keeping me productive. I have some writer friends who can juggle way more than I could ever hope to. I think two projects at a time is my limit.

And yes, I love NaNo!! I might even play officially this year. Here's an amazing breakdown of what it is and how to do it if you're interested; (she says it better than I could) http://www.rachellegardner.com/2011/10/what-is-nanowrimo/

Let me know if you're in!

Amber Avery says October 15, 2011

I'm thinking of participating in NaNo, too! It would be great to all support each other!

Every year I swear I am going to do it, but then get sidetracked and never finish. :/

This just may be the year I make it through!

Logan Rutherford says October 15, 2011

VEX comes out at the end of October? That's perfect! I usually procrastinate, and do nothing but writing for the last two weeks, so my VEX reward system should come in handy! πŸ˜€

AddisonMoore says October 15, 2011

Amber Avery- Hi Amber, I officially signed up for NaNo! As soon as they let us buddy up give me your NaNo name and I'll buddy up with you. I luv to cheerlead especially when it comes to building a word count! lol! So, write, Amber, write! It's never too early to start, is it? Get crakin' on that outline because November is almost upon us!!

If anyone wants to buddy up my user name is just Addison Moore. I'll be more than glad to do it! =)

AddisonMoore says October 15, 2011

Loga – November, lol! You scared me I though maybe I had accidentally said October. And if I did I apologize. I've signed up for NaNo, so as soon as they let us buddy up add me or leave your NaNo name so I can add you.

Amber Avery says October 15, 2011

I signed up last year, but hoping to actually complete it this year!! Def starting of my outline. Haha My nano name is AmberA….anyone feel free to friend me!!! I'm not sure how you "buddy" with people on there tho….. :-/

This blog chatting is a nice change from the 140 char limit on twitter! Haha

Logan Rutherford says October 15, 2011

Wow. I feel stupid. I was looking at a calendar just before I typed my comment, so I was thinking "October", and accidentally typed that instead. Hahaha.

Yes, the 140 char limit on Twitter can be a blessing, but also a curse!

I'm signing up for Nano right now, so I'll be sure to add you as a buddy!

AddisonMoore says October 16, 2011

Amber Avery – Thank you Amber! I will buddy up as soon as I can. I'll check back with NaNo latter today and see if they're opening the flood gates yet. It's going to be a wild November! Although just before the holiday's has got to be the worse month for pumping out 50K. I vote we move it to March, lol. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says October 16, 2011

Logan, not a problem. I do stuff like that all the time. It's because as writers we have a whole other world on our minds. πŸ˜‰

Heather says October 17, 2011

Buddy stuff isn't open yet. πŸ™ I think i read Nov 1 is when it will go live. I agree Nov is a HORRIBLE month. Certainly will require more discipline πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says October 18, 2011

Heather – I wonder why they make us wait to buddy up? Can't they see how excited we are?

Heather says October 18, 2011

Makes no sense to me to wait. I'd want the support group ahead of time so i don't chicken out πŸ™‚

Logan Rutherford says October 18, 2011

Ahhh! Not only does VEX come out in November, but INHERTIANCE by Christopher Paloni (which I've been waiting on for years) comes out at the beginning of the month! Plus HOLLOWMEN by Amanda Hocking, AND Thanksgiving! It's gonna be tough, but I will persevere! I will defineitly be needing my writing buddies to help me, though! Hahaha.

AddisonMoore says October 18, 2011

Heather – No chickening out allowed. I think. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says October 18, 2011

Logan – Wow November is going to rock! And I'll cheer you through NaNo. Cheer/drill sergeant same difference, right?

Logan Rutherford says October 18, 2011

Haha! That's what my mom said! I woke up at 3:30 this morning thinking of Nano strategies, and ideas for my book. Needless to say, I'm super excited!

Amber Avery says October 19, 2011

I can't believe it's less than two weeks until Nov!! Def have to get my outline done!! Where the heck are the days going? This whole working deal isn't giving me much time! πŸ˜‰ haha

I'm getting excited though!

Logan– wow that's early! Must be some great stuff floating around in your head!!!!

AddisonMoore says October 19, 2011

Logan, See? your mother is wise. Now get that outline going!

AddisonMoore says October 19, 2011

Amber Avery – I've been hitting the outline hard. I think my NaNo story is taking shape. I love hanging out with new characters!!!

Heather says October 24, 2011

EIGHT days ladies, & gents! *breathes into paper bag*

Amber J. says October 24, 2011

Don't remind me lol. I'm shaking in my boots (and yes, it is already cold enough here in NYC to pull out the UGGs lol) as I work on my outline. At first it sounded like fun, but once I discovered "Water For Elephants" and "The Night Circus" came out of it, the air in the room got really really heavy lol.

I guess I'm just experiencing the normal NaNoWriMo newbie jitters lol. Is it normal to feel like your novel is probably going to crash & burn?

AddisonMoore says October 24, 2011

Heather – EIGHT DAYS!!!!!!!! I'm more scared than I am excited. *sigh* I'd better stock up on provisions, i.e. stock up on Halloween candy while it's still floating around.

AddisonMoore says October 24, 2011

Amber J. – Wow, I didn't know those books were born from Nano! See? NaNo has potential for awesome. Be not afraid Amber! Pull out those notepads, those post its, sharpen those pencils and keep the laptop charged, it's almost upon us!! I might need to do a NaNo post. πŸ˜‰

Logan Rutherford says October 24, 2011

I've been so busy, I haven't even started outlining yet! I've got it all in my head, though. I just hope it doesn't suck once I get it on paper!

AddisonMoore says October 24, 2011

Logan, I have a super rough outline myself. I sort of like to leave some room to pants it. But I do need to know beginning, middle and end, sort of like a loose road map. And don't worry if you don't like the first draft! What important is if you like it after 20 drafts. πŸ˜‰

Tessa says October 24, 2011

Will Vex be the final book of the series? Please say no!! I love your writing you are one of my favorite authors. Keep up the wonderful writing!!

Tessa says October 24, 2011

P.S.

Every time one of your books comes out I run around the house bouncing with excitement and my family just doesn't get it, then I hold up in my room and devour the book in one sitting. I just CANT stand to put it down till I know I've read all there is to read. Seriously can't wait for your next book!! Thank goodness it's almost November!!

AddisonMoore says October 24, 2011

Tessa, You are so sweet! Thank you for reading my books, and I'm so glad you're enjoying the series! Vex will not be the last book, the series still has a book or two or three or ten to go. I'm letting it run its course. The resolution of the faction war and what happens to Skyla, Gage, and Logan will be revealed sooner than later, but I have plans to keep the series going. At least that's what my brain tells me today. πŸ˜‰ Right now I'm polishing VEX so it sparkles come November. I really hope you'll enjoy it. Also there are the Tuesday teasers of VEX on my FB page that I plan on continuing until it comes out. I hope you're enjoying those as well!! =)

Logan Rutherford says October 24, 2011

I just left the 100th review for Ethereal! It was a 5-star review, of course, and I'll be leaving a review for the others soon!

AddisonMoore says October 25, 2011

Logan, ~*THANK YOU!!!*~ I SO appreciate that! =) That really means a lot. Amazon is the biggest point of sale for an Indie author, so a nice review always makes my day! Thank you again!!

Jenn says October 27, 2011

What ever happened to your BIG news!?!?! It's been months Addy!

AddisonMoore says October 27, 2011

Jenn, I think of my big news everyday *weeps* But I can't share. I'm hoping everything goes through as planned and I get to share SOON, but if it doesn't, and the big news decides to disappear, I'll probably share what almost was. LOL! Hopefully it's the former.

Logan Rutherford says October 30, 2011

I just checked and you can now add writing buddies on Nano! It's about time!

AddisonMoore says October 30, 2011

Logan, Oh good! Now I just need to figure out how to add buddies. Off to do so. =)

Amber J. says October 31, 2011

Thanks for adding me as a buddy πŸ™‚
This is my first NaNoWriMo, so I'm not sure how the whole buddy thing works, but hopefully I can figure it out by Tuesday.

Also, do we have to add our whole novel as we go along, or can we just leave bits and pieces? I only ask because you have done this before.

AddisonMoore says October 31, 2011

Amber J. – YAY NaNo!!!! I think. As far as words go, I think if I remember you just input your total whenever you feel like updating, then at the end you can upload your file for them to verify. You are also allowed to scramble your doc before inputting it into their system in the event you fear they will read it. I always scramble. There's a way to convert your file into gibberish. I'll try and look it up for you if you're interested. Unless of course they've changed things this year, lol. But I doubt they have.

And speaking of change… my big news is a comin'!!!! Hopefully this week or next!!! Be warned! =)

~Happy Halloweeeeeen!~

Amber Avery says October 31, 2011

Yay for buddies!!! Did anyone figure how to add??? I'm AmberA

Amber Avery says October 31, 2011

Saw you already added me…whew on not having to figure it out. LOL

Logan Rutherford says October 31, 2011

Ahhh! I can't wait to find out what the big news is! I have my ideas, but I don't want to say what they are and be totally wrong. Hahah.

And I'm totally staying up until Midnight and writing until the wee hours of the morning! I've read on the forums that it's good to write a lot during the first day, so you can have a good buffer going.

Amber Avery says October 31, 2011

Blogger ate my comment!!

Good idea, Logan!! I'm hoping to have good momentum tomorrow, although I have to work a 3 hour shift. Just hoping for a great opening day! Haha

I am super excited to have 3 buddies on nano!! Yay πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says October 31, 2011

Amber Avery, I finally figured it out. You go to search and type in their NaNo name, which can be tricky because some people use different names for NaNo.
The best part of NaNo is that it's really just an exercise to get your brain in word producing mode. You can write almost anything in a first draft. πŸ™‚ Go Amber!

AddisonMoore says October 31, 2011

Logan, the big news is biG, bIG, BIG!!! Can't wait to share!!!

Have fun #amwriting at midnight! Happy Halloween! =)

Amber J. says November 1, 2011

This was one busy Halloween, so I was able to push NaNoWriMo to the back of my mind all day, but it's past midnight now here in NYC so I guess here we go!

Hopefully I'll have my first 50,000 words and a copy of VEX waiting for me in my Kindle app by the end of November πŸ™‚

And the build up to this "big news" has been intense lol, but I assume that must mean it's bigger and better than I originally thought. I knew Celestra series was too awesome to stay e-bound πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says November 1, 2011

Amber J. – I hope you're writing, girl! VEX is in the shop (editor), so I can cheat on it and pen a new WIP for NaNo.

And yes, the news crawls closer and closer… I can hardly breathe from the excitement of it all. I'm crossing my fingers for this week!!!

Logan Rutherford says November 1, 2011

Today I have written more in a day then I ever have. At 2,013 words, today is a good day, and I'm not even done yet!
What's the most you've ever writen in a day?

AddisonMoore says November 1, 2011

Logan, Wow! You are rocking the keyboard!!! That is awesome!! I'm taking a NaNo break to surf the net, and I'm barely at 1K! I'm a wimp.

The most words I've ever written in a day is an ungodly number that I hardly believe. In fact I've never even come close to this number since then. It was around 16K. I remember thinking I would never write a single word after that from the trauma of it all. Do not attempt this feat at home, lol. Word counts like that are what zombie's are made of.

Don't forget to input your daily total at the NaNo site! Have fun #amwriting! =)

Logan Rutherford says November 1, 2011

Oh. My. Gosh. Are you serious? We're talking 16 THOUSAND, right? That's insane! Just thinking about writing that much makes me hurt! That's almost half of a NaNo novel!

I am putting the total on the site right now! My user name is jaloru95, if you wanna buddy up! Can I steal your #amwriting hash tag? Is it copyrighted? Hahaha.

Melina says November 3, 2011

Okay Addison…so when I got to the end of WICKED I was so thrown that I went back and re-read the entire series…my poor kids think I went into protective custody bc they haven't seen me! I kept looking to see if I missed any subtle clues…. Poor Skyla…can she trust anyone? Plz release Vex soon…. I can't even pick up another book until I get some answers!

AddisonMoore says November 3, 2011

Logan, #amwriting is general so use it all you want! =) And I think I've already buddied you! At least I thought it was you. I'll double check. Log those words!!! You're kicking out some serious word count!! Once you push past the beginning of the novel things get a bit easier. Or not. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says November 3, 2011

Melina, I'm so humbled by the fact you can't pick up another book till VEX, and selfishly so, lol! I hope you do find something to pass the time, we've still got a few weeks left. I hope you're enjoying the VEX teasers! =)

Amber J. says November 4, 2011

I just finished watching my newest favorite show called "The Secret Circle". It makes me think about the Celestra series because there's an actor on it named Chris Zylka that would be the perfect Logan, but I digress lol.

"The Vampire Diaries", another popular show comes on just before it, and I discovered today that both shows were both originally…book series…in YA paranormal genre.

And then a light bulb went off lol. So is it ok to ask if the big news has something in common with the information I have just mentioned?
*keeping my fingers crossed*

AddisonMoore says November 4, 2011

Amber J. – Now, that, would be epic.

Heather says November 5, 2011

Oooo, Amber J! I like the way you think! I'd watch it.

AddisonMoore says November 5, 2011

Heather – I so agree. πŸ˜‰

Danetra says November 5, 2011

Okay Addison, I've been checking in on your guys but haven't posted anything until now and you will understand in a minute what has driven me out again.
First like to say that I hope the writing is going really well for you, Logan and Amber! Wish I could say my studying has been going as well but have been in ever search of good books to read while waiting for Vex. Finally have one series that seems to be helping me pass the time but not study.
So here it is: I always check to see how you are doing and if by chance your news has been posted. So of course I caught the recent comments between you and Amber regarding your news, a t.v. series and then your response about that being epic. The word epic struck me …I had heard that before in fact from you in regards to your news so I searched the comments & this is what I came up with, "Amy – *epic* HUGE ~aMaZiNg~ news to come… πŸ˜‰ I would do anything if I could share right now." So has me wondering now, could it be??? I would watch it too if I could find a way to stream it online in UK as it is hard to get some stuff over here in London. But never fear I am all for it and will find a way to watch it if it is true!
So still here, still waiting…..and sadly no news and no Vex but hope it arrives soon. And no pressure or anything but I hope the book following Vex is finished soon & going to editor cause you know all your crazy fans will be ready for it shortly following the release of Vex and of course what could be better than having it as an early Xmas gift. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says November 5, 2011

Hi Danetra! (Blogger ate my comment so here's take two!)

First, I'm so glad to hear your studies are going well! I wish you much success on your papers and exams. =)
Second, you are quite the detective! lol! I neither confirm nor deny anything. But I will say I'm just waiting for one piece of mail to arrive, and when it does I'll do a fresh blog post with an announcement of my big news as soon as possible.

As far as Celestra 6 before Christmas, I'm not sure about that, but January looks more promising. I might launch my new series around the same time, but that's still to be seen. I feel like I'm cheating on Celestra with it. I'll try to have a cover and title up for book 6 right after VEX launches. I'm pretty excited about that, covers and titles are always fun. =)

Take care Danetra! Have a great day! =)

Logan Rutherford says November 6, 2011

Okay, I didn't realize that my sister's Google account was logged in when I posted my last comment. *facepalm*

I was wondering, are we going to see a new VEX cover? I know you mentioned that the cover of VEX that you have now was just a temporary one, but I was wondering if you were going to end up keeping it.

Alright. Time for me to stop procrastinating, and get back to writing!

Amber Avery says November 6, 2011

In the Nano cave more than Internet browsing and I return to see chit chat over wishing for a Paragon-set TV series… THAT. WOULD. BE AMAZING!!

I would totally DVR it! πŸ™‚

How's everyone's Nanos going???

Getting there for sure!

Amber J. says November 6, 2011

Amber A – My NaNo novel is sputtering along. I barely have 1500 words and we're already into Day 6 πŸ™ It's like my mind is moving too fast and my fingers can't keep up. Not to mention I'm typing the whole thing on Word To Go on my Blackberry lol. I don't know how you authors do it.

And I am sooo taking credit for guessing the epic news first if I'm correct lol.

A Celestra TV series would be perfect for the CW (do all of you out west even have that network?) or maybe even MTV! *gasp*…but again, this is just me speculating. These are not the views of Addison Moore lol.

AddisonMoore says November 6, 2011

Logan, It's going to be tweaked, but I just spoke with my cover designer a.k.a my husband, and he informed me it might not be that big of a change. We shall play with it and see. At the same time I'm going to try and develop a cover for book 6! I'm really excited about that. =)

And, get that word count cracking! You're doing a great job in the writing cave!

AddisonMoore says November 6, 2011

Amber Avery, I am doing some serious NaNoing over here. I still have a couple days before I get my hands back on VEX, so I'm totally not cheating on Celestra. πŸ˜‰ Happy writing to you!!!

And I'm loving the 'big news' theories!! Too fun!

AddisonMoore says November 6, 2011

Amber J. – There's still so much of November to go, don't worry about your word count. You can do it!!! =)

And, I'm going to let the 'big news' theories proliferate until I put up the announcement. Then, the truth shall set you free. πŸ˜‰ Thank you for thinking so highly of Celestra. I do think that a TV series would be amazing. I'm very humbled that you would even suggest it. =)

Happy writing!~

Amber Avery says November 6, 2011

Amber J– I have tried writing on my iPhone and it's tough! HUGE kudos to you!! I'm AmberA on nano and amberavery on twitter if your looking for more nano buddies. πŸ™‚

Addison– You're a rock star! I can't believe it's almost time for Vex!! Need to dwindle my TBR pile so I'm ready!!

My other Epic news "fantasy" for Celestra is a movie….I'm dreaming of big things for you, because you so deserve it!! Between being an amazing author and cheerleader to all us other writers, your too fab!!

AddisonMoore says November 6, 2011

Amber Avery- Wow I'm loving your fantasy, too! Personally, I think you guys rock! Thank you for being such a great support to me. It really means a lot! Have a great #amwriting day! =)

Heather says November 7, 2011

Gah! Amber J i can't imagine trying to do NaNo on a phone! I have a hard enough time doing it on the computer πŸ˜‰

Dude, if it was a movie I'd so want casting input! Make sure you put that in the contract Addison πŸ˜€

AddisonMoore says November 9, 2011

Heather – Ha! I will! πŸ˜‰ I SO wish! My news was delayed again. I think the powers that be are trying to teach me patience. Little do they know it's a completely futile effort! Good luck with NaNo!

I will be doing another post on Friday which has nothing to do with my big news. =)
