Writer Wednesday: I'm a Very Thankful Author

Every book has a dedication page and an acknowledgments page so authors can thank all those people who helped make the book. Well, to be honest, I hate writing these. I'm always afraid of leaving someone out (by accident of course), and to be honest, I could gush for pages upon pages thanking people I'm happy to have with me on my writing journey. Still, I try to keep these short, knowing most people don't read them anyway. ;)

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I want to say a general thank you to everyone reading this post. I don't care if you've ever read one of my books. I'm thankful that you found me here and that you allow me to share a little of me and my writing with you each week. I hope everyone has a great holiday filled with good food, family, friends, and a whole lot to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. What a lovely post! I was terrified writing my thank you page for my book (especially because I had less than 24 hours to send it to my editor). Because of that, I kept it general. I was too worried about forgetting someone.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  10. Yes, acknowledgement pages are hard to write because there are always so many peeps I want to include on the list! Have a great Thanksgiving.

  12. I would go on and on in an acknowledgements page if I could. I am thankful to so many.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  13. I mentioned you on my blog today! I can definitely relate to the acknowledgments page issue. I always end up with "buyer's remorse" afterward, too...knowing I left someone off. I need to start writing my acknowledgments page for my next book now, while I have all those forgotten people fresh on my mind!
