From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers

Thank You

Nobody has more experience with rejection than writers, so we felt especially pained that we had to turn away so many wonderful stories for this book due to our limit of 101 stories per book. We read every submission however, and even those that didn’t make it in were instrumental in helping us shape the book.

We owe a special thanks to our editor Madeline Clapps, who helped us narrow down the thousands of submissions to a few hundred finalists, and by the way, she complained the whole time that there were too many good stories. D’ette Corona, VP and assistant publisher, worked with all the contributors and helped to edit the stories. And editors Barbara LoMonaco and Kristiana Glavin Pastir performed their normal masterful proofreading jobs while making sure we got to the printer on time.

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.
