Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Dating Game is a collection of stories that will encourage you, support you, and make you laugh. It goes on sale at a bookseller near you on December 17th. My essay, “Short Distance Romance,” about how I met my husband, appears in the volume.
It is a thrill to be published by Chicken Soup. For years I have been honored to get my essays and fiction published in literary journals with small press runs. This is the first time my creative writing has been accepted by a mainstream publication. People will actually be able to buy it in brick and mortar and online bookstores. Patrons will be able to pick it off the shelf of their local library.
I will add this to my list of publishing credits, which I hope will help me once I finish my novel and start to look for an agent.
Meanwhile, I’ll be checking the mail for the complimentary copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Dating Game the editors say they’re sending me. And in case you’re stumped for holiday gift ideas, I understand they make great stocking stuffers.
