I handed in my final revision of SO MANY BOYS today, and soon I'll be working on book 3 (which I can't tell you the title for yet) Right after I finished my edits, I realized that I hadn't done my acknowledgements for it yet. And they were really hard to do!
In book 1, you thank everyone that's ever known you--or at least, I did. But for book 2... do you thank them again? I wasn't sure. I thought about it, and decided to trim the list. But I wanted to share with you a few pieces of it.
As always, my book is dedicated to my grandmother--as they all will be. And then, here is my opening line:
Disclaimer: The same ex-boyfriends that were not harmed in the writing of Book 1 were also not harmed in the writing of So Many Boys. However, some of the emotions in the situations may or may not reflect feelings the author could have possibly experienced at some point in her life.
I swear, with that I could hear a collective sigh of relief! Now, I wanted to rewrite my bio. The one in The Naughty List... well, it makes me sound very responsible. ME?! So here's my new bio:
Suzanne Young is a brilliant scientist. Not really. But she is a former middle school teacher turned zookeeper (mother).
When Suzanne’s not fending off zombie squirrels or narrating her daughter’s Barbie soap operas, she can be found camping on the Oregon coast or writing obsessively.

So there you have it. An early peek into my new book! Sort of....
Have a great Friday!!!!!
