I'm doing something I've never done in a book before. I'm killing people off. Good guys/bad guys... who knows. What I do know is that everyone is at risk. I had planned all along for one of my characters to die, but she wasn't going to go until later on in the "series."
In my very first novel the book starts with a recent death and the repercussions of that loss are felt through the book, but it's not like I killed her.
I'm pretty sure people like me are not meant to have this kind of power. Mwah haha ha ha ha ha!
