Just thought I'd pass along the response I got to my e-mail from the "Chicken Soup" group:
Dear Alysia Thank you for contacting us. I am sorry but our company policy changed a few years ago. For legal reasons we have stopped the practice accepting new Chicken Soup for the Soul book title ideas from outside sources. We have found that the titles proposed are usually similar or identical to ones we are already considering, have already considered, or are working on in-house. We did publish Chicken Soup for the Soul: Children with Special Needs in 2007. While not specific to autism, there are stories on the subject in that book. Please visit our web site - www.chickensoup.com - for information on the newest books planned for our Chicken Soup for the Soul series. There are two lists available. Select the "Submit Your Story" link on the left toolbar and then the "Possible Book Topics" link for one list. Also check the "Books and Other Products" link on the left toolbar and then the "Coming Soon" link. For a complete list of all of our published titles please select the "All Titles" link. Chicken Soup for the Soul

So there you have it! :-) Maybe another one will come along.

Hi Ladies - I am SO behind...my dad was ill and is better now which really had me out of sorts...and I just haven't written much in the last 3 or 4 weeks...I kind was getting the writing blahs and then he got sick and I just had no energy for anything....but I am coming back now and starting to get ideas again which is good. I am hoping to work with Linda's company (Treasureline) on my book - which is very, very exciting....and I have decided to submit an article to O Magazine - one I started over a year ago and keep hiding under my bed (euphemism for "in my laptop...).. I am a chicken, what can I say?

Have missed all of you and thanks for continuing to come by my site!

For you fiction-writers, you have a good chance of getting published in Christian Fiction Online Magazine. They publish two short stories per month. It doesn't pay, but it's widely read. For questions and submissions, contact Bonnie Calhoun at: bonniecalhoun[at]tds[dot]net . http://bit.ly/bWOY29

Finally, I am catching up. What can I say? You are all impressing me with your talent as writers and with where you are taking your writing.

Naomi - I left a comment over at Green Diva's but was so impressed with your thorough and concise article. It is so difficult to tap into what we face as parents when trying to discipline our children and you got to the core so easily.

Peryl and Meagan - Naomi's writing is not too dissimilar to both of yours with the honesty, freshness and non-judgemental approach. With all of you your kindness and your excellent writing skills shines through.

Swati - You are on to huge things and I want you to share your progress with us.

Alysha - so glad to have you on board. We are excited to help you to reach the greater heights that you are wishing for with your writing.

I am continuing down the list as I will be swept away for a month when I go to Nantucket Island and since my mother only has dial up I think I'll take a break from it all.

Love to you all. Can't wait to follow your progress in August!

Peryl, thank you so much!! You are always so supportive and kind. I really appreciate all your help!!! You know I adore you!! xoxoxoxoxo
Comment by Peryl Manning on July 10, 2010 at 10:26pm
Naomi - loved your Green Diva article - I remember loving it from your blog. Such a nice, evenhanded, non-judgemental approach, which is my very favorite kind. Great job, as always! (I left a comment, I'm hoping it shows up - commenting forms and I are not always the best of friends...)
Comment by Aysha Iqbal on July 10, 2010 at 10:22pm
thanks Peryl
Comment by Peryl Manning on July 10, 2010 at 10:06pm
Hey Aysha and all - re: Mamapedia - it's easy to submit - I believe on the Mamapedia voices page where my article is there's a link that says something like "would you like to blog for us" - when you click, I believe a form comes up where you can enter your info and copy and paste your article. I've submitted and had three articles accepted, it seem to take between a week and month to accept. Good luck, I'm sure they'd love to publish all you fabulous writing Mamas!!
