Race the Darkness (Fatal Dreams Book 1)(123)

By: Abbie Roads

NEORWA: You guys win the most supportive chapter award. I love you all so much for always stepping up and supporting me even though I live two hours away and never make it to meetings. You guys rock!

My Critique Peeps: Christina Delay, Brinda Berry, Jennifer Savalli, Jenn Windrow, Celeste Easton, Pamela Stewart. You guys critiqued this before I ever sent it to my agent. I had some real stinkers in here until you all read it. Thanks for saving me from looking bad. I’m so grateful for each of you!

Dobby and Brindle: You’re the best fur babies. One of you always warms my lap while I’m writing. At this point I’m not sure I could write a book without one of you sleeping on my legs. And, Dobby, in case you didn’t realize it—you were the inspiration for Killer.

Emmanuel: Dude… If I can write a whole novel and get it published—you can do anything! Don’t ever forget to be awesome. Being your aunt has been one of the best things ever.

Mom, Dad, Laura: Thanks for encouraging me to read as a child. I know you must’ve spent a small fortune on books for me. I remember getting in trouble because I was always in my room reading, but you never made me stop reading—I just had to sit downstairs with the family to do it! Loving reading is what made me want to be a writer. Without each of you, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

My clients: Your tragedies and triumphs inspire me every day. I really do have the best job in the world.

You: My books are nothing without you. Thank you for investing your time and money in my novel. You have no idea how much it means to me. I salute you, dear reader, and hope you will return for my next novel, Hunt the Dawn.
