Sasee Chick is clucking

I am back from vacation and will tell you all about it tomorrow. It is 101 degrees here, and I am exhausted. Have four loads of laundry and unpacking to do. Our garden is wilted and our new little tree is screaming for a drink. I have stuff to do.

Chicken Soup sent me a contract for the hockey book. I was so excited I dashed down to the hotel lobby, printed the contract, and had them fax it...forgot my signature. Had to resend.

We arrived home before the post office closed. I picked up a week's worth of mail and found a check from Chciekn Soup for my story which was recently published in Chicken Soup for the Soul Married Life.

And another surprise, I found Sasee Magazine in the stack of junk mail with my story, Gym Dandy  in it. Local writer, Pat Wahler aslo has a story in this issue.

Please click the link and read the stories and, leave a comment, pleaseeee?

I'm Sasee bound. On my way there now.

I hope not to hear how much cooler it was at the beach than it has been here!

So funny...I used to think I was married to Murphy; you know of Murphy's law - because EVERYthing would go wrong.

Hi Linda. Good to see you back, and congratulations on all those writing achievements. That must have really given you a spring in your step! I've been hearing about all these very high temperatures that my American bloggy friends are having. Meanwhile, over here in England, it is mid Summer, and we've all got webbed feet. Just day after day of rain, rain and more rain. So depressing really!!

Can't wait to hear about your vacation, Linda.

I was thrilled to see the Sasee magazine. They really do a wonderful job with it. Your story was a hoot. How fun to share another publication!

Hi Linda - just a quiet follower of your blog. Was wondering where you were - welcome back from vacation. I, too, signed a contract for the Chicken Soup Hockey book - good luck to us, and to others who have stories out there, as well! Take care,

Wow, congratulations on all the good mail you've been getting lately. It is very hot here, too.

I love your story. I went into our pool for the first time last night. No-one was here, they had all gone in search of fireworks and I was alone in the water. That same suit I wore last year did not seem to cover as much flesh this year ............

My first shipment of books arrived Tuesday. It was a real ego boost to see my name on the cover! Now I just want to sell them all and order more.

Guess you should go on vacation more often... oh wait, you are always getting published! Congratulations!
