Breaking News: Publishing
We break into your regularly scheduled for an announcement of hilarious proportions.
Today, at 12 noon mountain standard time, this reporter received word from the publishers at Chicken Soup for the Soul that two stories, The Crying Machine and Chinese Fire Drill were both accepted for publication in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters. This follows the reception of the hilarious and oft quoted On Esther Time published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: All in the Family published October 2009.
This reporter's squeal of publishing acceptance excitement could be heard five miles away and broke windows in the quiet residential neighborhood near Old Colorado City in Colorado Springs. Neighbors, upon learning the reason for the excitement, immediately offered congratulations and were given chewing gum to relieve the sudden change in air pressure that erupted from the usually silent J. M. Cornwell who works at home. The police dispersed the crowd before asking for Ms. Cornwell's autograph and a copy of the upcoming book -- to give to the desk sergeant, of course.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled day.
That is all. Disperse.
