So, here we go…7 days until the book launch of Small Message, Big Impact – unbelievable! This has been quite a journey…3+ years. I wondered at times if it would happen. Truly, writing any book is only the beginning…not the end. The quest for a publisher, the rejection…the rejection, did I mention the rejection. Then there’s the review team, and editing – ugh – red editing ink, then there’s the production time, and then all the marketing, prelaunch and pre-sale work and then fun little unforeseen challenges prior to launch, — finally the “official release date”…and a lot of hoping and praying all the way.
I am excited, nervous and hopeful. So, before the real craziness begins I want to say thank you again, to everyone who has been a part of this project with me. I Love you!
I know one thing for sure, “Come What May”…win or lose whatever happens, I have given it 100%. I will put my head on my pillow as I go to sleep on May 31st knowing I did the best I could with what I know, and I will wake up and celebrate on June 1st with my friends and family…let the next chapter of this adventure begin!
I am posting the formal Acknowledgments section here from the book…I realize many people skip over the acknowledgments, but I want those who supported me to get the recognition they deserve!
And, I want to add two names to my acknowledgements that were not listed at the time of printing, but who have been a tremendous asset to me in the last few months…Allie Dreiling-Marion, my new National Marketing Coordinator at Sjodin Communications and my dear friend Tiffany Ashland! You girls are the best!
Big Hugs, Terri
