I somehow made it like a trend not to include the acknowledgements page in my recent books. There is a valid reasoning for that, however, in case anyone thinks that I simply don’t have anyone to thank for. On the contrary, I would much rather post the acknowledgements on my blog instead, out of time (and space) constraints.
In any case, I’d like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the following individuals for their gallant contributions toward the completion of Polaris Music Dingin.
To Sherly, who taught me that there is more to life than just surrendering to daily grind–who strives her best to achieve her dreams, and showed me that I could always do the same, no matter how much I’d like to think otherwise.
To MC, who stayed with me all the way, through thick and thin. For all the stories, laughter, and productive weekends we shared.
To Utha, my editor, who believed in the manuscript until the very end. The very person who half-forced/convinced me to give the manuscript a chance for publication. You’re right; I wouldn’t have it any other way.
To Emilya Kusnaidi, who reminded me that I am loved for all my flaws. Who taught me that, even though I felt broken and distraught, there will always be someone who will give a helping hand, if only I would pause for a moment and ask for help.
Last but not least, to my family. My home, my sole solace of comfort. Thank you for being there during my darkest moments. Thank you for lifting my spirits up whenever I almost gave up. Thank you for believing in me. This book is for all of you.
