I didn’t put an Acknowledgement page in Bittersweet because…well…I didn’t want to. I’ve always put Acknowledgements in my books, but I wanted to do something different, more intimate by using a Dedication page. Not only that, but I had a long overdue Dedication to make and given the nature of Bittersweet, the timing was perfect.
But, that doesn’t mean I can’t let it go without mentioning a few names, so here it goes.
First, a huge thank you to my beta readers, Edie Ramer and Stacey Curtis. Bittersweet wouldn’t be anywhere had it not been for you guys calling me to the plate. Also, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention my fabu cover artist Jax Cassidy. This girl rocks! Also, Lisa Hazard of Hazard Editing, thank you for doing a fantastic job with keeping my grammar on track and giving me the ah-ha moments during my critique. Like Jax, you have a client for life as long as you’re willing to have me. 🙂 Also, a big thank you to my fans. This book is for you more than anyone else. For that, I thank all of the indie/self-published authors who came before me and convinced me that this might be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made with regards to my writing career. To some of my favorite teens and pre-teens Allie, Syd, Colby, Jorden, Sara, Jackie, Paige, and anyone else who I might have forgotten to mention, I love you guys.
So, there you have it. And if you missed it, check me out my video interview with the amazing Kalayna Price. 😉
What do you guys think about Acknowledgements? Do you read them or skim over?
