My book (actually books, TOO LATE didn’t have one either, neither did HATE FROM THE SKY) have yet to have an acknowledgements page. Understand, this is less to do with me not thinking others played a great part in my work, and more to do with a terrible memory getting worse by the day.
But in that spirit, I’d like to, first and foremost, thank Brian O’Connell for believing in my work enough to host it on his site THE CONQUEROR WEIRD. The finished manuscript has been fleshed out, and differs in some ways from its original serialized version, but the spirit is the same, and Brian’s enthusiasm was, and continues to be infectious. So many of us as we age grow bitter and let the spark die, so it’s nice to have a teenager to give me pure unhindered hyperactive joy. Thanks buddy. (Let’s get that novella off the ground soonish, ay?)
Emily Chew, the love of my life, I’d like to thank her for not murdering me yet. I am not easy to live with, and am harder still to be around when I’m working on a longer project. She joked today I’m a basement dwelling cryptid, which really isn’t that far off, haha. Love you Emily.
Now many authors inspired TH3 D3M0N, but I keep coming back to Matthew M. Bartlett. For the last few years, he has been ever supportive, and much the same way Emily puts up with my pure unadulterated neurosis, so too has this wonderfully patient, and incredibly talented man. His encouragement has gone a very long way, as well as the help of other great writers like Farah Rose Smith, Gwendolyn Kiste, Tom Breen, Jonathan Raab, John Claude Smith, Alex Smith, and there’s a ton I’m forgetting, and this is exactly why I haven’t done an acknowledgements page yet! I’m sorry if i forgot you!
Thank you all, and if you’re screen starts strobing red, run like Hell!
