Acknowledgments

From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People

Thank You!

We owe huge thanks to all of our contributors. We know that you pour your hearts and souls into the thousands of stories and poems that you share with us, and ultimately with each other. We appreciate your willingness to open up your lives to other Chicken Soup for the Soul readers.

We can only publish a small percentage of the stories that are submitted, but we read every single one and even the ones that do not appear in the book have an influence on us and on the final manuscript.

We want to thank Chicken Soup for the Soul editor Kristiana Glavin for reading every story and poem that was submitted for this book and for her assistance with the final manuscript and proofreading. We also want to thank our assistant publisher, D’ette Corona, and our editor and webmaster Barbara LoMonaco for their expert editorial, proofreading, and organizational assistance, as well as Leigh Holmes, who keeps our office running smoothly.

We owe a very special thanks to our creative director and book producer, Brian Taylor at Pneuma Books, for his brilliant vision for our covers and interiors. Finally, none of this would be possible without the business and creative leadership of our CEO, Bill Rouhana, and our president, Bob Jacobs.
