From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Christmas in Canada

Thank You

Thank you, Canada. We owe huge thanks to every one of you who shared your story about the wonders of a Canadian Christmas. It was very hard to narrow the list down to 101 stories, and even the stories that didn’t make it into the final manuscript had a big influence on us and affected the final manuscript. Some of them may appear in Chicken Soup for the Soul’s next Christmas book, scheduled for 2015!

We want to thank Chicken Soup for the Soul’s VP & Assistant Publisher D’ette Corona for her input, her editing, and all her work with our contributors as we worked with them to perfect their stories. Managing Editor and Production Coordinator Kristiana Pastir oversaw the long journey from Word document to finished manuscript to proofs to cartons of finished books and Senior Editor Barbara LoMonaco oversaw the story submissions and proofread the final layout.

We owe a very special thanks to our creative director and book producer, Brian Taylor at Pneuma Books, for his brilliant vision for our cover and for the interior design. And we are grateful to the whole sales team at Simon & Schuster Canada for enthusiastically presenting our book and making sure that it gets on store shelves all over Canada.
