Is there someone who deserves your undying, eternal gratitude? An editor who guided you through your first book? A cover artist who got it just right? A husband or wife who propped you up when you were ready to quit? An agent (oh hell, do I have to hear about how much you love your agent–I’ll be ill, honestly)? A crit partner? Your cat? Tell us about him or her–go ahead, gush, and then let them know you did. Brighten the day of some unsung hero.
