Thank You

From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Best Mom Ever!

Thank You

We are grateful to all our story contributors and fans, who shared thousands of stories about their mothers, grandmothers, stepmothers, mothers-in-law, and honorary mothers. Ronelle Frankel, Mary Fisher, Barbara LoMonaco, Kristiana Pastir, and D’ette Corona read all the stories that were submitted and narrowed down the list to a few hundred finalists. There were so many fabulous stories that it was impossible for editor-in-chief Amy Newmark to pare down the list to only 101 stories. She actually chose a couple of hundred stories and put together our Mother’s Day book for 2018 at the same time as this one!

Associate Publisher D’ette Corona continued to be Amy’s right-hand woman in creating the final manuscript and working with all our wonderful writers. Barbara LoMonaco and Kristiana Pastir, along with outside proofreader Elaine Kimbler, jumped in at the end to proof, proof, proof. And yes, there will always be typos anyway, so feel free to let us know about them at [email protected] and we will correct them in future printings.

The whole publishing team deserves a hand, including Senior Director of Marketing Maureen Peltier, Senior Director of Production Victor Cataldo, and graphic designer Daniel Zaccari, who turned our manuscript into this beautiful book.
