As an author of more than two dozen books, I can tell you that book dedications are only fun for the first five or six. After that, unless you have someone specific to thank for that particular book, there really aren’t more people in your life that need or want such a public thank you.

Which is why many authors I know simply forgo them after so many books. But I gotta say…after scrolling through these amazing dedications, I think it’s time to up my game. I mean, creativity for the win, am I right?
