On a whim a few weeks ago, I submitted an essay about being a stay-at-home mom to Blogstar. When I sent the email, I told the editor, Sarah Bryden-Brown, that I eagerly awaited her rejection. I had pretty much written it off and chalked the whole thing up to good experience. So you can imagine my shock when I got an email from her on Friday saying that my essay was going to be published in an ebook. I read the email about five times to make certain she really meant to send it to me. ME. Then I got another email, a group email, to all of us whose essays had been accepted. Yep, there was my email address again. It was real.
SQUEEEEEEEEEE!! I'm going to be published!!!! I don't know too many details yet, but the book should be ready around the first of July. As soon as I know more, I'll pass along the information.
I haven't stopped smiling in days. (Well, there may have been that one time when Dallas napped in the afternoon then refused to go to bed until 11:30 that evening...)
