So Many People to Thank....
In addition to the people I acknowledged in the book, there are many, many others who have helped and supported me. The list of book bloggers alone could fill this entire post. I now have a whole circle of awesome local writer friends. And tons of new online friends in recent weeks like Brina Courtney, Diayll Sales, Amy (Book Loving Mom), Amy (Following the Reader), Mandy (Romance Bookie), Dan Hanks, Ashley (Bookish Brunette aka Zombie Queen), Prosperine, Ifrah, Sophie (Life Between Pages), and so many others, who have reviewed, RTed, and supported... it's really quite overwhelming when I think about it. :) Thank you all!!
