I heard someone by the front door and then the distinctive sound of a delivery truck pulling away. I love getting packages. don’t you? I whipped open the front door and pulled the box inside. A box of books ~ a sure way to this girl’s heart! It was the latest edition in the Chicken Soup series ~ The Dating Game. I knew the books might be arriving earlier than scheduled due to the holidays, and you don’t hear me complaining!
Being a contributor to Chicken Soup has been such a blessing on my writing journey and I have been so grateful for the opportunity to submit my stories, and sometimes, see them printed on a page, between two covers and sitting on a retailer’s shelf. Sure, one story out of many…and I am a-okay with that. I just love being a part of it all! I also really like what the new publisher has done with the covers~ I think they are just so catchy. Honestly, I have loved the covers on my last three books, and especially liked the “It’s Christmas” cover. But more important are the stories inside ~ everyone has a story and whenever I thumb through and read someone else’s story I am in awe of the storytelling talent out there and the humor and inspiration shared by my fellow contributors. It’s such a fun ride ~ I hope I never have to get off!
