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!
