Letter like these from you keep me going. Keep me writing.
Thank you. I love you.
"This has never happened to me before. I began reading your book very late last night. Just like your previous books I get sucked into the story right away. I had intended to read 2 chapters then head to bed. That was not possible. It was like a drug. I had to continue. Then when I got to the part where she's in bed and has what seems like a hallucination, I got very nervous. Why? Because that part of the story triggered a terrible memory for me. I suffer from hallucinations whenever I have an extremely severe migraine. Sometimes they are silly and weird but most times they are frightening. I had a terrible one years ago that still haunts me. The imagery in your story was so vivid it felt real. I have read many books but none have ever, EVER, hit as hard as this one. Wow! Wow I say! I stopped reading after ch 4. I was too shaken up. I haven't slept yet. But that's ok because even though I am shaken up this time the trigger didn't break me. I forced myself to recall every frightening detail of my experience. Just like Olesya's experience was real to her so are my hallucinations to me. All my senses experience them as if it is truly happening. I've been playing it in my head over and over. I have shed many tears over this over the years. It's taken me years to work through this without falling completely apart. I've even written about it many times hoping to purge the pain. It never helped. It is your story that made me face it head on. This time there were no tears. I feel as if [it] can't scare me anymore. Thank you for your incredible mind and for sharing your stories. I am going to want to purchase the physical copy of this book, hopefully with your autograph. I'm anxious to read on but first I must try to sleep."
