24 Hours London - The Oscar Speech

Well, it's launch day and there's a plethora of activities going on -- including my 24 Hours Twitter Marathon (and yes, I have been up since 5 a.m. so please ignore any typos, etc).

Being a travel book and all, I didn't get to do an acknowledgments page. But there are, of course, loads of people I want to thank. So... here they are!

The Man: for encouraging me to try to do my writing thang, seeing through my feeble excuses, poking me in the butt and, in general, motivating me to actually start doing what I want!

Friends and Family: for not telling me I was a complete loon when I dropped my corporate job to start writing.

Blog, Twitter and WAG friends (India, Elle, Nancy, Tim, Deniz, and loads of others I'm sure I'll remember at 3 a.m. tonight): for understanding writer angst and isolation, for helping me to procrastinate, for lifting my spirits and providing a great sense of community. And for writing reviews on short notice!

Prospera Publishing (my publishers): for being so great to work with!

And finally...

Mike Harling and Toni Hargis: for endorsing and promoting the book, and being really really helpful! If they ever decide to retire from writing, they definitely have a career in book promotion!

Coming up later tonight... '24 Hours in Your Neck of the Woods' Round-Up Post and Winner!
