Acknowledgment Page from The Hidden Moon

For the first time, I would like to thank my readers for this book.

It’s been over five years since the release of The Jade Temptress, during which a series of disappointments put me in a tailspin. I’d always intended there to be third story with Wei-wei as the third “sister” to complete the trio that started with The Lotus Palace. Between life and contract issues, the possibility of a third book drifted further and further away.

An author’s biggest fear is that if we don’t publish, we’ll simply disappear and readers will forget. But every so often, I would receive another letter asking me if I would one day write Wei-wei’s story. I realized that even though I was holed away in my hermit cave, the Lotus Palace stories were still out there and new readers were coming to them. No matter what the publisher might do with them, these stories and what was created within belonged to me.

And to my readers.

Thank you for sticking with me. Each wonderful comment and lovely note you sent kept this story alive.
