Recently, I was bestowed the honor of being chosen as one of the contributing authors for “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom” anthology. I am among the 101 contributing authors who represent the various corners of the global community. Many of the authors are from the United States, while there are representatives from Calgary, Alberta; Northeast Scotland; Dublin, Ireland; Bogota’, Columbia and Albuquerque. As you know, the Co-Creators of Chicken Soup for the Soul are Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen. Since 1993, books in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series have sold more than 112 million copies, with titles translated into more than 40 languages.
In celebration of my mother’s birthday (the late Henrietta P. Gordon – March 15) and to honor all mother’s for Mother’s Day, I am giving away a copy of my latest book “Diversities of Gifts: Same Spirit” along with a copy of “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom.”
