Toot-toot! I received an acceptance on my poem, Army Wives, from Silver Boomer Books. It will appear in their newest anthology, The Harsh and the Heart--Patriots Dream to be released in August 2011.
Everyone knows the sacrifices a soldier makes, but many don't realize the sacrifices (and friendships) their spouses make. This poem is very special to me as it is about my best friend who has dementia. We met as army wives and newlyweds, forty-two years ago.
Check out Silver Boomer Books. They have a list of possible upcoming titles. I have been published in four of the Silver Boomer Anthologies. They just keep getting better. The page layout is unique. There are quotes that scroll across the bottom of each page and continue from first to last page. The quotes are as much fun to read as the prose and poetry. Do check out the Silver Boomer Books.
Congratulations, so glad your work is getting where you want it. Have a wonderful day.
Congratulations, Linda. What a sweet gesture for your friend.
Congrats, Linda! Is this one that I've read? I certainly remember hearing about your friend, and how heart breaking it is.
Hi Odie, Donna and Becky,
Thanks. I just wrote this one. Never shared it with anyone. When I saw the call out, I thought, wow, no one mentions the spouses.
Thanks for your comments.
CONGRATULATIONS! Well done!
congrats my friend!!!
Wow - very impressive. Poetry is very tricky. Congratulations!
Congrats, Linda. Love hearing such good news.
So pleased for you. Congratulations and so sorry to hear that your poor friend has Dementia. It's such an awful illness, for the sufferer and all the family.
Congrats to you! sandie
Congratulations! You are a Jill of many trades. I can barely write memoir. And let's not forget your craftiness. I wouldn't be surprised if you recycled some castaway everyday items into your very own tootin' horn. Well done!
Congratulations! A poem with a bit of your own heart in it is always best...
Yay! Awesome news. Congrats!
Good thing that your published list can go on forever because that's what is happening! Congrats!
Congrats to you, Linda!
reading your impressive list to the right, Linda! how did you manage NOT to make it into THIS PATH? it's the only SBB anthology that doesn't have a Linda O'Connell piece! ;)
Congratulations! You are creating quite a handsome list of credits!
Congratulations to you, Linda! Write on!
Woo hoo! Congrats! Thanks for the link, will check it out.
Happy Mother's Day weekend,
Congratulations! How sweet to do a tribute to your friend.
Congratulations! I'll go check them out.
