Chicken Soup for the Soul, Married Life: 3 Writers, 3 Stories, 3 Readings — 1 Book

An essay I wrote was published in the book Chicken Soup for the Soul, Married Life.  And that’s a thrill! Many, many of my writer friends know how exciting it is to see their words in print, in a book. And now I do too!

It’s really exciting to hold the book in my hands, to open it and see my essay and my name. Have I had other pieces published? Yes. Have I had other works of mine appear in an honest-to-goodness New York Times bestselling book series? No. Chills, my friends! Chills!

To celebrate the book’s publication, two other local Northern New Jersey authors and I will be reading our essays on September 25th at the Montclair, NJ Public Library. If you’re in the neighborhood, please plan to attend! I would be delighted to greet you! Seeing familiar faces in the audience might help quell the butterflies that are sure to be fluttering in my system that night!

  1. How exciting! Congratulations on this major accomplishment. I’m sorry I won’t be in the neighborhood for the reading (Montclair, NJ is a bit of a hike from Indiana), but I know you’ll do great. I look forward to reading your essay when I get my hands on the book. (Ever thought about doing a giveaway?)

    Darlene, congratulations on being in the book! I loved your story about your husband doing all that research on sunglasses. I’m sure everyone at the reading will love it too.

  3. Congrats! How exciting. That is fabulous.
