I’ll be back next week with January and 2015 goals, but in the meantime …
First, I have to thank God for his grace and patience. It took me a while to find my gift and now that I have found it, I am forever thankful for His blessings.
To my family for putting up with my hair brain schemes, this one I actually finished. Mom, Dad, Kevin, Jimmy, Patrina – Love you!
Pk Hrezo, Tianna Doyle, Emily Robertson & Vanessa Aapiah. The most honest, supportive and enthusiastic beta readers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. You all brought a unique perspective and made my story better.
A big thank you and your the best, to Jade at Black Firefly who answered all my questions and guided me through the whole production process. We created a beautiful book, don’t you think?
Huge thank you to Rachel Marks and the team at Mark My Words Book Publicity. They took on my book like it was their own and helped me navigate the world of marketing.
Thanks to Allyson Whipple and her editing assistance.
Special shout out Jenny Sims at Editing 4 Indies. She proofread Another New Life, but will be my editor of choice for future projects.
Another special shout out to Arijana Karčić at Cover It! Designs. She is a vision personifier (is that a word). She made my characters come to life in the form of book cover genius.
An enormous amount of gratitude goes to Suzanne Van Rooyen for being my musical guru. She shared her extensive knowledge in piano and musical performance and helped me make Miranda a true music prodigy.
A special shout out to some of my favorite, most inspirational, and motivational bloggers who I have gotten to know over the last three years.Alex J. Cavanaugh Arlee Bird Nicole at Madlap Post Katie Cross – my most consistent commentor Kitt Crescendo *Many more that I could name, but I only have a page to work with.

And, finally, I wanted to acknowledge a few NA authors with recent releases who blogged, Facebooked and tweeted about their journeys and made me feel like I could do this, too. (Note, I’m not even sure if I am allowed to mentioned them in the book, but I want to make sure and mention them here.)Claudia Bradshaw – Sin for Love AJ Pine – If Only Brianna Lee – Rush Into You Paige Rion – Written on Her Heart Faith Sullivan – Hold me Tight Cassie Mae – How to Seduce a Band Geek
XOXO Kisses and Hugs to everyone. If I forgot anyone, please forgive me, this is my first time. Thanks to the A to Z Challenge bloggers, as well. Do you like writing your acknowledgment page or do you worry you might forget someone?
