Happy launch day, little book! ️❤️ I have spent ten years with you, dreaming you up, writing you into existence, and now you’re out there, in the world, finding your readers. And even though our time together is over, I find comfort in the thought that stories, as long as they’re shared, are never really done. People, as long as we carry them in our hearts, are never really gone. They live on in the reading, in the loving, and in passing them on. So into the world, little book! As always, I hope you find the readers who need you. ️❤️
My undying gratitude to my editor, Stacey Barney, and the entire team at Penguin, for taking this journey with me, and to all the innumerable people who have encouraged and supported me along the way. ❤️️ I couldn’t have done this without you.
And last but never least, thank you, dear readers, because Kelanna is yours now—the characters, the adventures, the tall tales. Please take good care of them for me. ️❤️
