From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom

Thank You!

Once again, I have been astounded by the emotional depth and honesty embedded within the stories from our contributors. Not every story could be used, but every story added to the richness with which we were able to explore the relationship between mother and child in this book. I offer my deepest gratitude to the thousands of people who submitted their personal, heartfelt stories. By sharing your experiences and insights, you help create the special bond that exists among the vast Chicken Soup for the Soul readership.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom was truly a collaborative effort! Editor Barbara LoMonaco read thousands of submissions and did the impossible job of selecting among them. Assistant Publisher D’ette Corona worked with all the contributors to make sure that everyone’s story was edited properly. Publisher Amy Newmark guided the manuscript with a sharp eye, trained opinion, and exceptional diligence that kept us all on schedule. Editor Kristiana Glavin perfected every line with meticulous editing. And a big thanks to Brian Taylor at Pneuma Books for the gorgeous cover design and layout.

Under the leadership of CEO Bill Rouhana and President Bob Jacobs, Chicken Soup for the Soul continues to connect millions of people every year through the most human, relevant topics. It is truly a privilege to be a part of this team.
