   A Portion of My Acknowledgments in The Secret to Southern Charm

One of the hardest parts of writing a book for me is writing my acknowledgments–because I have so, so many people to thank that I always end up having to cut them down–more than once! The funny thing is that most of the time, the people I thank never even see the acknowledgments because they don’t make it into the advance copies. (Because I procrastinate soooo long on turning them in.) So I wanted you to see a small portion of my acknowledgements in my latest novel The Secret to Southern Charm today! Thank you sweet friends for all of your help and support!

My design blogger girls, there are too many of you to name here, but, literally, you launched my career. Hands down. Thank you for your enthusiasm, your support, and for sharing your readers and your corners of the Internet with me year after year. I love you all so much and am in awe of your generosity!

It is beginning to sink in that this is my fourth novel, that only four years ago I was hoping and praying that I would get to see just one book in print. I have to thank you, the reader who holds this book, for helping to make my dreams come true, for telling your friends and writing reviews, for hosting and coming to my events . . . I am here today because of you, and, even though we may not have ever met, I count you as one of the people I am most grateful for every day.
