Ocean Wylde Gives Thanks

I want to extend a special thanks to all those who have given support, praise, encouragement, editorial reviews and proofreading suggestions on my manuscript. First and foremost, my sister, Sally, who read and commented as I wrote, you are so invited to my launch party! My author friends, Kate Kae Myers and Laura Bingham, your input and suggestions have been invaluable. Carol and Lorraine, your editing skills cleaned up a real mess and taught me so much about punctuation (which is definitely not my strong suit!). You have gone above and beyond! Jessica, Tawnya, Suzie, Jeri, Levi, Natalie, Colin, Barbara, the Hoover Table at LDStorymakers Boot Camp, my Critique group at CrittersInk, (Rebecca, your great!) and my youth readers, Megan, Beth and Trinity, thank you all so much! Ocean Wylde would not be what it is without all of your input. Your encouragement and belief in me have kept me going long after I may have otherwise given up. (I wish you were all agents!)

This is the first novel I have written, and one in a planned series of five. (I never start small). Book two, Journey to Menpotis, is in progress, with the others mapped out in my head. I am very optimistic they will be published despite the odds.
