First and foremost, I would like to thank, my mother Kaylene Osborn for her work as my editor, my plotting confidant, but not only that, when times were a little rough writing this duet, you helped me tirelessly bring it all together. I couldn’t have done this without you. Words cannot describe how undeniably thankful I am to have had your support and help. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being my editor, my mother, my support and my constant.
To Kathy – Where do I even start? This duet would have been so different were you not involved. The details you found, the idiosyncrasies you pointed out, the plot holes, the character development you helped enhance, all helped mold this duet and for that I thank you. You are one hell of a tough but fair BETA, and man am I happy to have you on my team. I don’t know how I ever got by without you!
To Kim B – Just like Kathy, you also helped enormously with the duet, especially Breathe. Getting that particular ‘thing’ to turn out the right way for everyone to be happy. I cannot express enough how glad I am to have you on my team. Thank you for all your efforts and honesty, I’m lucky to have you.
To Carol – Thank you for everything as always. You are always here for me no matter what when it comes to BETA work or for just for a friendly ear. I couldn’t imagine this book world without you in it.
To Cindy/Thia – Thank you so much for reading over my two books and helping with the Americanisms. My Aussie twang slips in way more than I care to admit and poor Mercs sounded more Aussie than American sometimes, but with your help, we’re bringing him back to his Pennsylvanian roots. I really am honoured you take the time to read through my work for me and help me like this. You’re a true legend. Thank you!.
To Kaci – Another American translator for my work. How would I do this without you? I’m very thankful to have you on my side, helping me to make my all-American man that little bit more American. Thank you for being a BETA for my work. I love having you on my team.
To all of my awesome BETA readers – Thank you for once again putting your thoughts into this book. I appreciate all of your energy and ideas, and together we make a great team. Without you beautiful ladies, this series wouldn’t be at its best potential. So thank you, every single one of you.
To Nicole – Not only did you beta this book, but you’re also my super organized and amazing PA. Without you, I could never have my life in order. You are such a blessing to have around, and I’m so glad you’re back in my life. Thank you, for all that you do. I’m pleased to have you on my team.
To Christine – My Hype PR awesomeness guru. You have been utterly amazing since I started working with you. The time and effort you put into helping me is undeniably humbling and I am honoured to not only call you my PR manager but my friend. Thank you for all your hard work. I’m so glad to have you on my team.
To Fiona – Thank you for always proofing my work and making it the best it can be. Your support and skills are a valuable addition to my team. You always find time for me, and for that, I’m very appreciative. Especially when Jane and I book you out constantly lol.
To Jane – Insert mooshy sappy stuff about loving you or whatever lol but you know you’re my boo. I couldn’t do this author stuff without you by my side. Thank you for always being there. I kinda like having you around. But don’t let that go to your head lol.
To Kellie – My amazingly talented cover artist. The covers for this duet are some of my favourites that you’ve ever done for me, and you’ve created quite a few for me. I love that you know me so well. You get me. And I love that we work so well together. Thank you for always making the best covers a girl could ask for.
To my beautiful, playful and utterly adorable pup, Bella – I started this writing journey with you, and I couldn’t imagine it without you. You are the light of my life. My furbaby and I love you probably way too much. It’s a problem lol. I love you Bella Boo.
Last of all, I want to thank YOU, the reader. Your continued support of my writing career is both humbling and heart-warming. I adore you readers so much, and honestly couldn’t keep going without the love and support you all show me each day. Thank you for believing in me, and I hope I can keep you entertained for many, many, years to come.
