I recently wrote my acknowledgements for Original Sin. It was hard.
Here’s the thing.
When I wrote Personal Demons, I didn’t have the courage to put myself out there. What that means is NO ONE read it (with the exception of my daughter). My awesome crit partner read the first three chapters, and that was it. So, because of my cowardice, the only people I really needed to thank were said daughter and crit partner, my husband for keeping us alive (even though he didn’t know why I wasn’t getting to the grocery store, or why I didn’t have time for the laundry), my agent, and my editor.
So, Original Sin acknowledgements are longer than Personal Demons acknowledgements, but they’re not nearly long enough. I really wanted to include all of you by name…but my editor told me the acknowledgements couldn’t be longer than the book. O_O
Thank all of you for your support over the last year since I started this blog. You are truly appreciated.
