Big news over here! Chicken Soup for the Soul bought one of my stories! We are going to be published! Can you believe it? This is a dream come true… quite literally one of my life goals so I am beyond excited. I have been reading Chicken Soup books for as long as I can remember, some of those stories have impacted my life so much that I still reference them to this day.
I am so very honored to have had a story chosen, from thousands of other submissions (they said so!) and it’s all because of you readers out there, I couldn’t have done it without your support and encouragement— thank YOU. You keep me blogging when I can’t even keep my eyes open.
Now, I’m not going to tell you which story it was that they picked (my last post should tip you off enough…) but the book will be available to purchase nationwide on March 18th! If you like reading here, or if your just my friend, or an internet stalker… then go out and buy it and tell all your friends, too! You can pre-order on Amazon now by clicking here.
- also! I have a “page” for the blog on Facebook now! (no. I am not on it, it’s just a page for updates synced with my Twitter. ) So like us on Facebook for more updates and please share us with your friends! Click here to like us!
Oh ! Did I tell you the title? It’s the “Multi-Tasking Mom’s Survival Guide” Fitting, huh? Actually, I haven’t the least idea how to survive beyond ear plugs and coffee so I can’t wait to get my hands on that baby myself!
Gosh. I just want to ask you to join in a virtual happy dance with me right now because I am giddy beyond measure! <<<(no amount of exclamation points could possibly convey) Like a complete nerd, I just keep salivating at the fact that on March 18th I can bust down the doors of my local Barnes & Noble find my name in print there! Eeep!
I would be remiss if I didn’t credit my ever-chattering Italian family, especially my parents, who are so well versed in the art of storytelling, that they made aspirations of writing an attainable desire. Thank you! And of course to my patient, super encouraging husband and oh, those three kiddos. Thank you, you mashuganas! I can honestly say, without any hesitation, that I have never been more grateful for flatulent children that I am today.
