The past 4 years have been wonderful--full of learning, growing, and making amazing relationships. But sadly, it's time for us to spread our wings and explore new paths.
Belle Rêve started after a conversation I had with a couple of English majors at my university. We all had a passion for authors and a love affair with words that far surpassed our need to choose wise, profitable degrees. No, we wanted to love writers the best way we knew how--by giving them a place to showcase their work.
I can still remember sitting at my kitchen table, trying to figure out HTML coding for our first website. I had no idea what I was doing, but I was determined to make it work. And it did. And it has all these years since.
So many thanks to all the authors we met along the way. The ones who sent us encouraging notes and supported us through every season. We adore each of you.
Love and hugs to all the past and present editors who have made everything possible: Emily, Aimee, Liz, Jenna, and Tonya.
As we move into this new season with some sadness, we hope you'll continue to keep in touch. Your success and happiness has always meant the world to me.
Wishing you the very best. Always.
