Not Your Mother’s Book looking for your true stories

Yesterday I posted about writing a mother story to honor our mothers and to be a lasting keepsake for our families. Then I see Linda O’Connell has written a beautiful story on her blog, Write From the Heart, of her mother and the generations of mothers and daughters in her family. Way to write, Linda!

Linda has had numerous stories selected for Chicken Soup books, but she’s now working with editor-publisher team Ken and Dahlynn McKeown, former consultants and authors for the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, to collect edgier work for a new anthology series called Not Your Mother’s Book. Linda is co-creator for Not Your Mother’s Book: On Family, and is looking for your true short stories about your family. Her friend and mine, Dianna Gravemann, is collecting stories of motherhood for Not Your Mother’s Book: On Moms-to-Be and On Being a Mom. Ken and Dahlynn have a lot of books in the works, so take a look at all the topics. Be sure to read the submission guidelines and note how you will be compensated if your story is selected.
