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!

    Ah, I knew you when…

    When you were not so prolific or successful.

    When you were afraid to stand up in a living room and speak to an audience of three.

    When you did not have a website or blog.

    I loved you then, and I love you now!! Congrats on this latest publishing venture. I really am so very proud of you. And I’m rather proud to call you *friend*…

      Ah,friend, I still get nervous when I stand up and speak in front of three people and I am convinced each story to get into a Chicken Soup book will be my last! Just ask my husband who has heard me whine more than once that I am a washed up hack who got lucky a few times! Baby steps, just little baby steps…that’s all they are. But I am so grateful for friends, like you, who walk with me on this journey and encourage me along the way and give me reality checks when I need them (and I often do). Love you and very blessed and proud to call YOU sister and friend!
