I've had a pretty amazing day. A few big things have happened. Eversea hit some milestones including breaking into the Amazon Top 100. I can't really even talk about that, because I'm still kind of in shock. In a good way :) But it really makes me realize what a huge THANK YOU I owe.
In no particular order of importance ~ but since he's sitting right here watching the NBA finals ~ My husband. He is wonderful. Like I sometimes can't believe my good luck, wonderful. Oh, and he's cute. That's cool too :)
AL Chaput and Dave MacDonald, my critique partners, who have met every tuesday for over ten years, but somehow decided this rookie could join them. I can promise you they hit me over the head enough to make sure I always did my best and gave you my best. They are both extremely talented individuals: Al Chaput writes southern suspense, following a family of vigilantes in Savannah. And Dave MacDonald weaves really detailed and amazing thrillers. I have learned SO much from them. And will continue to do so.
My cover designer! Adrian Repasch ~ he is truly talented and just ... ON it. He has a full time job, an intense one, as an art director for some seriously well known brands, but he took my cover just as seriously as he did those. I can't tell you the amount of mentions his cover has gotten. And deservedly so. It's GORGEOUS!
My editor Judy Roth. She went above and beyond, replying to every little mini crisis I had trying to really make sure Jack was perfect. That I really captured his depth of feeling, even though it was all in Keri Ann's point of view. She really "got" what I was trying to accomplish. How did I get so lucky to find you?
ok wait. Also you guys. If you ar ereading this, I'm thanking you. It means you are supporting me. And for that I am ETERNALLY grateful.
