Parenting Book Story Deadline

Parenting Book Story Deadline

The deadline to submit stories for the anthology “Not Your Mother’s Book . . . on Parenting” is December 3, 2012, so hurry! And if you don’t get your story in on time, don’t worry because we have more than 30 books in the works that need your true stories! Too late for the Parenting book? Try “Moms” or “Family.” The funnier the better! And if they are a little edgy, great! Give us a good laugh. If it’s no racier than PG-13, it’s not too edgy for us. Story length: 500-2500 words. See http://www.PublishingSyndicate.com for story guidelines and a list of books seeking stories. I have two more books in the works: Not Your Mother’s Book on Grandparenting and a new title: Not Your Mothers Book . . . on Working for a Living. I’m waiting for your stories!

Two of our books are already published, and a third will make its debut in December. Already available in bookstores and as eBooks: Not Your Mother’s Book . . . on Being a Woman and the hilarious Not Your Mother’s Book . . . on Being a Stupid Kid. Can you believe I’ve read each one THREE times? Seriously, I have! And I’m still laughing. I can’t wait for Not Your Mother’s Book . . . on Dogs in December, NYMB . . . on Travel in January, and then MY first book in the series, on Parenting in March!

Edgy Grandparenting Stories Wanted

Earn dollars while you build a writing platform if your stories are selected for the Not Your Mother’s Book anthologies. There are nearly 40 books in the series, and I’m co-creating the Parenting book and the Grandparenting book. True stories, 500-2500 words, fun, entertaining, and maybe a little edgy . . . that’s what I’m looking for! What’s an edgy story? I think of it as a story that you laugh about at home or that you tell over and over but that you probably wouldn’t tell at church. You know the kind. PG-13 – TV 14 rated. No sad stuff! We get enough of that in the newspapers. It’s summer, and if you’ve been spending time with the grandkids, you probably have some fresh stories to share. Or maybe you have some mighty funny stories about your own grandparents. Don’t make me sit here all night bored while I wait to hear them. Go to http://www.publishingsyndicate.com to read submission guidelines and to turn in your story. Questions? I’m right here. Just ask!
