Acknowledgments section in a serialized book
« on: February 09, 2018, 09:34:09 AM »
Hey guys,

I haven't posted on here for centuries. I hope everyone's keeping up their 1,000-2,000 words/day discipline!  :o

I know that many prefer to put the Acknowledgments in the backmatter so as to not clutter the front for the reader, so I've decided that's what I'm gonna do too. But when it comes to a serialized book chopped up in installments, it's OK to just include the acknowledgments at the end of the final installment, right? I mean, knowing that it's serialized from the outset, surely the reader won't find it strange that there's no Acknowledgments in the first part...or would they?

Cheers  8)

Putting credits at the end of the series shouldn't be a problem. I don't see anything wrong with it unless the people you're acknowledging are under a different impression.

I did the acknowledgements at the end of one series on the last book only because I had written them all together, so the thank yous would've been the same.

My current series, each book I've had to consult different people because the subject matter is different, so I've been doing acknowledgements per book in the back matter, because I know different people are involved and I don't want the end of series to have an acknowledgements section that is super long.
