Rosemi, my editor/agent/publisher/teammate: I will learn how to not embrace the suck too much so that I can embrace the good as well. You understood my vision, and you fell just as hard as I did. I look forward to working with you throughout the rest of Liza’s journey! And thank you for telling Edric to march his a** back home and put on some slacks! You took a chance on me, and I am forever grateful. I can’t guarantee success, but I can guarantee maximum effort, always.”
