Craig brought it up at the dinner table. And absolutely nothing happened. In fact, the first reaction from Mary was..."Oh! We get to go to California now!"
They were amazing. So supportive. Absolutely best case scenario, and saying we have to do what's best for us and of course they'll miss us but we're young and we have to take these kind of opportunities when they happen. We voiced our concern about upsetting them with our decision and they were actually grateful that we were so caring of their feelings in this but reiterated that since Craig has pretty much hit the ceiling in the company here in the UK, he really needs to do what's best for him and all of us.
So now I'm feeling a little silly about being so worried about it since they were so amazing. But it's done, and now I can get on to the important stuff in getting this organized.
And since I've only just now gotten all my e-mail from the past 24 hours, I just want to take this chance to congratulate the authors who won awards this past round at the Vampire Kisses Awards:
kallysten, moxie_fic, sandy_s, kantayra, aj_hofacre, psubrat, musing_mia, and pepperlandgirl4. I think there are some I'm missing, and if I left your name off, my apologies and congrats (I'm so tired that I'm seeing double which is a copout I know, but unfortunately, the truth). And, yeah, I snagged two awards for Best AU for Rook and best author, so feeling rather chuffed about that. Nominations have started up for the next round over there, so I encourage everyone to go ahead and start nominating. :)
