Harder than I thought

I know some writers who have written their dedications and acknowledgements long before selling. I have done this to some extent in my head, but never on paper. For me, I was too afraid of jinxing myself since me and jinxes go way back...

Anyway, yesterday I turned in the dedication and acknowledegment for the book. This was a fun project, but also a lot harder than I expected. I wanted to thank and mention every single person I've ever known, but that would take up an entire chapter or two or three, and isn't exactly a possibility. *sigh* That being said, I'm very pleased with what I turned in, and even more relieved that there'll be a second book where I'll be able to mention more people who have helped me or supported me along this journey.

The author bio and pic also made it to my editor yesterday. I feel like things are moving ahead now. Just waiting to hear back on revisions to see if I need to do another round . . .

Nice!

I've always sorta mentally balked at trying to write acknowledgments, as I'd hate to leave someone out, but you kinda have to narrow it down SOMEWHAT in ways... lol, glad to hear you got something that worked. :)

Isn't it awesome to turn in the acknowledgments and dedication? I always fear that I'll forget someone. I know I have but I'll make it up to them in the next book...so then it appears that I have plans to write more books so I can include everyone I've wanted to!
