We taped our podcast discussion with Marna Krajeski about her fabulous book Household Baggage three weeks ago. I ran into some editing problems with the podcast and it has taken me some time to work it out. However, there's light at the end of the tunnel and we hope to post the podcast next week. Marna has been incredibly gracious during this entire process. Stay tuned, you won't want to miss the podcast.
Something else you don't want to miss is sending your story to Marna for consideration of publication in her next book, which she is currently working on. Marna has extended the date for submissions to August 1. Your story does not have to be about moving, it only has to be a military story. See the "continue reading" section for submission requirements.
Send stories to:
HOUSEHOLD BAGGAGE HANDLERSAttention: Marna KrajeskiP.O. Box 1402Kingston, RI 02881
Or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We won't open attachments so paste your stories in the body of the email. Please keep copies as we are unable to return materials. Include your name, address, phone number, and email address so we can contact you.
- Stories must be received by March 30, 2007 August 1, 2007- The maximum word count is 1200 words. - For each story selected in the book, a 50 word biography will be included about the author. - If your contribution is chosen, you will receive 3 complimentary copies of the book and a publishing credit. - Spouses from all branches of service, past and present, are invited to participate. - There are no limits to the number of submissions.
Who knows, maybe we'll be reading your next story in Marna's new book. If you didn't read Household Baggage, pick up a copy. It will lift your spirits and you'll find yourself saying, "yeah, I can relate" over and over again.
A very special thank you to Marna for her patience during this process.
