Shout Outs! And the Winners Are...

Another prompt in the 28 Day Author Blog Challenge!!

Time for some shout-outs. This may mimic your acknowledgement page, but whom would you like to publicly thank for their help in creating your book or completing it to the point where it is presently?

I have a number of people to thank:

#1 - The Greatest Boyfriend in the World - He has encouraged and believed in me from the start. It means a lot to have someone there that pushes you, gently, toward your success.

#2 - My mom. She has gone to war in my defense so many times! Without her, I would have quit writing back in middle school and never bothered to try again.

#3 - My kids. I did college to show them that we can all be MORE. Without college, I would never have had the chance to hone my craft.

#4 - My professors (Dr. Khun and Dr. Ketchersied). They are the ones who saw my skill and nourished it.

#5 - My friend (Crystal Lee). Without her, I would have holes in my story a mile wide.

#6 - My brother (Ben). He said to me, "Keep writing like you write and you'll be a household name." He's so cute :)

All the people who pre-read my book (you know who you are!).

Moving on...

The Abigale Chronicles - Book Two releases next Tuesday! Go get book one and be prepared! Your kids will love little Abigale :)

That's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!

Play nice and have fun. If you're a jerk, I won't publish your comment. My blog. My rules. Thanks for taking the time to chat at me!
