If you've beta'd for me before, ever, I am deeply grateful to you. Every one of you has helped me to look at my work in a different way, and to take it beyond anything I could possibly have done alone.
Quite a few people on my flist have given me comments on one or more of my stories in the past -- melissa_tlc
come to mind, as well as yunitsa
, and penwiper26
. Thank you all.
, and the inestimable yahtzee63
kind enough to volunteer to read and comment on my original novel, even though they'd never beta'd anything for me before. You guys are great and I so
Finally, there are the few, the stalwart, the
suckers for punishment
truly dedicated, who have beta'd nearly all of my writing to date: lizbee
, and lydaclunas
. You've each brought a unique and valuable perspective to the editing process, and I greatly prize your comments, criticisms, and advice -- not to mention your steadfast friendship. Please consider yourselves the recipients of a large virtual group hug.
And if I've missed anyone, as I'm sure I have (because I have a brain like a sieve, and I am baking chocolate chip cookies as I write this, plus I didn't actually go back through all my Author's Notes to check), please accept my apologies, and be assured that I appreciate you, too!
