No brag ... just fact! The latest Chicken Soup book is now on the shelves - CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SCRAPBOOKER'S SOUL where my third story is featured, "Sentimental Old Fool." Former offerings are in CS FOR THE GRANDPARENT'S SOUL AND CS FOR THE BODY AND SOUL, all of which will appear in Echo soon.

CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SHOPPER'S SOUL will be out in Oct. "The Mixmaster," and I hear another is due around Christmas. I'm having a ball recalling my life ON THE EDGE.

A monthly magazine called RELEASING TIMES has my feature story with pix, and as always, the medical journal magazine is now giving my seventh submission a little edit. "Be Careful What You Wish For" as seen in Echo some months ago.

I was Writer of The Month at Long Story Short for "My Saving Grace," a former CS winner, soon to be in Echo.

I have also signed a release for royalties for two anthologies - SOUL DISCLOSURE (IUniverse, Inc.) and CLASSIC CHRISTMAS (Adams Publishing, Inc.) Both should show up soon. The stories will be submitted to Echo at a later date.

Along with various on-line articles regarding RX for Writers, several of my offerings have been published here and there. "Making The Most of Your Talent," "Old Wannabes," and "Beginnings And Opening Hooks." I'm hoping someone will take "Unnecessary Words," soon. All of the above pay a few nice shekels to this old widow lady.

Overseas, the Galway, Ireland ASPCA has picked up on two of my stories about animals and have asked permission to include them in their monthly magazine. Of course, they're so welcome.

Way way too many things to even mention, but guess you get the picture.

Meanwhile, OurEcho has been the most fun I've had in years. No fuss, no muss, no editing, no title changes, and the grandest thing of all . . . the submissions are published the moment they're posted - with pix. I'm not a critic, but an extraordinary majority of the stories and poems are well done and interesting. Reading what the chapter writers are producing these days, I'm a bundle of fiction jealousy.
