New Miracles and Moments of Grace

Call for submissions!
The good news is.... Miracles & Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Moms went off to the printer this week!

And the good news is... I'm starting the next title in the series! Miracles & Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories of Survival. Here are the details.

The stories must be first-person and can address survival in any number of ways: medical, adventure, personal triumph... even pets! Humor pieces are welcome (e.g., I Survived the Worst Family Reunion Ever). Other ideas include love or marriage surviving deep tragedy or challenging circumstances. And, of course, we love to hear about miracles!

Miracles and Moments of Grace stories are similar to Chicken Soup for the Soul stories. They generally address one moment in time or focus on a single theme. They include details, dialog, sights, sounds, thoughts -- any element that will bring a story to life. For examples, you can "Click to Look Inside" on the Amazon pages of previous books in the series, which are Miracles & Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Military Chaplains and Miracles & Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Doctors.

Stories are 800-1,200 words in length. Authors receive a copy of the book, along with the chance to publicize other writing credits, blogs and businesses in the biographies that follow each story. You don't even have to be a writer to participate! I am happy to interview you and tell your story. The deadline is flexible: I will accept stories until I have fifty fantastic stories.

For more information or to submit your story, contact me via the e-mail link at the bottom of the right-hand column of this page. Hope to see you in print!
