A Thousand Boy Kisses

By: Tillie Cole


Kia! What a fabulous team we make! You’ve been the BEST editor and proofreader ever. This the first of many stories to come! Thank you for all the hard work. It meant the world to me. Oh, and thank you for all the music checks! My fellow Golden Bow(er) (along with Rachel). Who’d have thought that all those years of us playing cello would come in this handy?

Liz, my fabulous agent. I love you. Here’s to my first foray into YA!

Gitte and Jenny (both this time!) from TotallyBooked Book Blog. Again, I have nothing to say but thank you and I love you. Everything I do, you encourage. Every genre change I make, you support. You are two of the very best people I know. I cherish our friendship… it’s “as special as special can be”.

And a huge thank you to all the many, many more wonderful book blogs that support me and promote my books. Celesha, Tiffany, Stacia, Milasy, Neda, Kinky Girls, Vilma… Gah! I could go on and on.

Tracey-Lee, Thessa and Kerri, a huge thank you for running my street team: The Hangmen Harem. Love you all!

My @FlameWhores. With me through thick and thin. I adore you girls!

To my street team members—LOVE YOU!!!

Jodi and Alycia, I love you girls. You are my dear friends.

My IG girls!!!! Adore you all!

And lastly, my wonderful readers. I want to thank you for reading this novel. I imagine right now your eyes are swollen and your cheeks are red from all the crying. But I hope you love Poppy and Rune as much as I do. I hope their story will stay in your hearts forever.

I couldn’t do this without you.

I love you.

Forever Always.

For Infinity.
