Oh! And the book I am writing is about trying to find the balance between living organic and the messy day-to-day realities of being a mom to small children. Its called "Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip." Kind of similar to the content on my blog. Check it out sometime if you wish. And thanks again!!! Take care.

Thanks so much, Aysha!! That was so kind of you. And I just visited your blog and loved it!! Great idea to be a support to other writers. I look forward to spending more time there and learning.

As far as submitting to Green Diva, you should do it!! Send an email to writeforus@greendivamom.com and tell Janet Harriet (the editor) that you are interested in being a contributor. Maybe send her a sample or two of your work that seems appropriate to fit their content. She is very nice and I'm sure would be delighted to work with you!

Thanks again!

Naomi..I just read your article and left a comment.. You really did an amazing job! At times, I felt like I was looking at a mirror image of ME...I am sort of relieved to see I am not the only mom who faces such issues... hee hee. Thanks for sharing such a well written article. I wish you luck getting published. What kind of book are you trying to publish.


Also, how did you start writing for them? All I see is an email address. Do we just send and enquiry and get started?

Thanks
Aysha

@Meagan, thanks for the link to Chicken Soup submissions. I'll send an e-mail and see what happens...

Naomi - I read your essay and it's terrific! I commented (but I don't know if it's shown up yet...) I think you hit it right on, and I'm glad I had a chance to read it today. Thanks for sharing!

Hi everyone!! I have been MIA for a while. Been working really hard on getting my book published, but so far no takers. Been rejected by 6 New York publishers so far. Some of them were really positive though, which was nice. Anyway, I just got an article published on Green Diva Mom. I would be UBER grateful for any comments over there. Because my agent is going to send the link to the publishers currently considering me and it would be great if it looked like people are actually reading my work. Thank you SO MUCH in advance. I promise to repay with comments on your blog!!! Please leave me your blog addresses and I promised to visit!! Thanks again!!! Here is the link:

@Jillian..Those 30 day cleansing programs actually work!!! My parents suggested products from Amega Global. Some of them work miraculously to uplift my energy level....http://www.eamega.com/

The link for the submissions page for Chicken Soup is HERE I would think that a query letter about the possibility for the book for the Autistic Soul would be where to start. It doesn't look like they have that specific title, and I would think it would do well. If you have a story to submit, that may help get the ball rolling.

Linda...I am so sorry about your back. Nothing is more painful!! You may find my blogpost from last February interesting. It is about recovering from my back going out and moving forward with writing aspirations. Off to write!
