Wordy Wednesday: DEDICATION

So, working through the copyedits last week, I had one of those OMG moments.  I made it past the title page with my name and the publisher on it (though that was cool) and the copyright page (not too interesting), and then I got to the Dedication Page with its little note from the my editor: "Stasia, do you want to add a dedication?"
Do I?!?!?!?!

I've actually know to whom I would dedicate this book for a very long time.  Even before I finished it.  I wrote it very much with two people in mind.  It's a secret for now, but the dedication means a lot to me.  I'm kind of tearing up just thinking about the comment I wrote in the Track Changes program.  So, the answer to my editor was YES!  And that page may just be the one I most want to see in print.

Yay for copyedits! What a wonderful, surreal moment that must have been! I know how you feel. I tear up just thinking about who I want to dedicate my book to as well.

Heather--Definitely the dedication was a tissue-box moment. Thanks for the follow!
