I just got a manuscript back from my editor so I could run through the final edits, make any last minute changes and send it back ready for its release early July.
I could also put in a 'dedication' - so far I have managed to come up with either a thank you to my wonderful beta readers, the grounding I got from my parents or something that suited the novel.
I wonder how many other authors have difficulty thinking of something witty or just interesting with each book.
In one of my books I wrote part of "Little Red Riding Hood" as the dedication - mainly because of the characters in the book. This time I wanted something different.
I finally came up with 'A very big thank you to all
the chocolate and coffee consumed in the writing of this novel - without you it
would have still been written but not as deliciously …'
