This chickie is clucking!

I am so excited. I just signed TWO more Chicken Soup for the Soul preliminary contracts, Messages from Heaven and the Married Life . I am hopeful but realistic. I know that rejection can occur thirty days before the publication release date. If these stories are accepted, that will be fifteen (15) Chicken Soup for the Soul books my stories will appear in. I feel very blessed to have the ability to write a compelling, often humorous and or inspirational story.

This Sunday evening 7-9
Regional Arts Commission on Delmar
Storm Country, an anthology $10.00

I am joining Elaine Viets and other contributing writers who have been published in Storm Country, an anthology.

Deb Marshall, Kelli Allen, Dianna Graveman will also be on hand. All proceeds will be donated to Joplin tornado victims to replenish their libraries. Please spread the word. This is not about the contributors. It is a benefit for the people of Joplin.

Bravo, Linda!

I will come Sunday ONLY if you promise I can sop up some soda with my cellulite-ridden rump.

Can you guarantee that?

That is great! I submitted a story back at the end of April to Chicken Soup for the Soul. I've never heard back from them, so I guess they didn't like my story. You are a very talented writer.

Congrats, Linda! That's terrific news!

BTW, as it turns out I won't be able to make the book signing. Forgot about a birthday party that night. Hope it's a great success!

Congratulations yet again! And hooray for the Storm Country project. People may not realize that tornado cleanup can take a year or more.

Congrats again, Linda! Hoping to still make it Sunday, in between the packing and moving and renovating...

You are the expert--you should speak at workshops about how to write one. I get so many requests to help authors with them.
