But our fandom lost a master on Tuesday.
EricIzMine, aka Angela Vaughan, passed away suddenly Tuesday night.
Now, I wasn’t one of her besties…hell, I’d never even met her in real life. But I was very upset when I heard the news.
And yet, I’m pretty damn sure she’s out skipping through the various ‘verses, waiting for us to find her and join her in her skipping merriment. (I do actually believe in the the parallel universe theory, so…)
And I firmly believe that she’d probably want to kick our collective asses if we mope around much longer.
That being said, there are a ton of authors out there who’ve done a much better job at this than I am…I am notoriously bad at verbalizing what I’m thinking, especially after someone passes. So, I’ll leave you with a few tid bits.
Firstly, there is a page here for a memorial fund run by her mother. I’d seriously encourage you to go donate, even a little.
And if you’re going to be doing any shopping on Amazon for Christmas, or in general, try going through her partnership page. Any little bit helps and her kids have access to all her accounts. So this’ll really help with Christmas for them.
So, that’s it. Our fandom lost a master, one who ascended much higher than even the creator of our beloved characters. Her stories have been enjoyed and loved by people of every age, and every color, in every part of the world. Saints and Sinners is still my all time favorite story and one I constantly have on my mobile devices so I can read whenever.
Here’s to you, Angela. We’ll miss you.
