This week I launched my cover reveal and it was a big moment for me. I'm thankful to all who have helped me get to where I am now.
I want to give a special thank you to my husband, Dale, who has always stood by me during this writing dream I've been striving toward for a long time. He continues to take on extra work around our household to give me the time I need to write.
And I want to thank my daughter, Drew, and my son, Matthew, for being supportive and understanding over the years as their mother worked toward publishing. What an amazing family I have...I'm so proud!
I would like to thank my parents, Gary and Diana, for being there to encourage me to keep going, especially when things got hard. I'm lucky to have amazing parents like you!
And I want to thank my Aunt Sharon, who tutored me as a young child and encouraged me to read, read, and read some more. How fortunate I am to have you in my life.
Last, but not least, I want to end with a list of people who have inspired me to keep going. I want to extend a special thank you to Aunt Betty, my sister Tammy, cousins Tom and Beth, sister-in-law Jill, my critique partner Janet, my editor Judy at Judy Roth Custom Editing, my designer Elle J Rossi at Evernight Designs, and my author friends from the (Wisconsin)RWA chapter.
I'm thankful for all of you!
Lianna loves spending time writing, reading, drinking coffee, and hanging out with her family and friends.
