How Michele Got Published

Yes, I am going to be published, but it is not a book.

It all happened a few weeks ago when I got an envelope in the mail.   I said to myself “Great! I’m even getting a reject letter from them.”  Then I opened it and it was a letter stating my submission was going to be published with a release date of June 2013.   All I had to do was sign a release letter and mail it back to them, which I did.

The Letter

Here are excerpts from the letter:

“Dear Michele,

Congratulations! We’re delighted to let you know that your recipe Old-Country Cake, will be included in our upcoming cookbook, Hometown Christmas, along with your name and hometown!

…Thanks again for sharing with us!  We’re always happy to hear from you anytime and enjoy receiving your favorite and original recipes, tips, crafts and memories.”

The letter is from Gooseberry Patch.  There will be a special private and shareable announcement when the book is published.

What I Did

I was at their site awhile back and they asked for submissions the new cookbook.  So I got out paternal grandmother’s recipe and emailed it to them.  After trading emails back and forth about some clarifications, I then received the letter.

So watch your local bookstore and/or Amazon.com for the June release.
