Congratulations, Alice Muschany, for Another Chicken Soup for the Soul Publication

Yesterday, during our weekly critique group gathering, award-winning writer Alice Muscany brought in one of her contributor copies of the hot-off-the-press Chicken Soup for the Soul: Hope and Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey, edited by Dr. Julie Silver of Harvard Medical School.   

The just released anthology includes two of Alice's true-life stories, along with stories from other women and family members affected by breast cancer. The issue also includes some of the latest medical information to give strength, inspiration, awareness, and hope to those affected by breast cancer.

The titles of Alice's stories are "Hats Off to Betty with Love" and "Forever & Ever." These two publications bring the number of Alice's stories in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series to about a dozen. 

Alice is a fifteen-plus-year breast cancer survivor and an inspiring writer who writes with grace and humor--oh, and she's a dynamite critique partner as well. Even the most polished manuscripts aren't safe when she wields her signature red pen--just ask some of the guys in our group.

Congratulations, Alice! You are an inspiration to writers and survivors everywhere.

  1. Great post, Donna! Alice is so deserving of ANY publications and/or awards. This is funny because last night I posted about Chicken Soup for the Soul having "real" soup for sale in early 2013! I'll go back now and add a note about Alice and your blog post! :)

  2. Hi Becky,
    Thanks!
    A few days ago I read that CS going is actually going to sell soup. Guess they figure there's a market for it. I wonder if Campbell's is going to start selling books?

  6. This is weird that both of you had trouble. Sandie from Georgia just viewed it and left a message, so maybe it's something local that's wacky!!

  9. Alice IS a top-notch editor and reviser. And yes, she deserves all the publishing credits she can collect.

    Please congratulate her for me. She is a wiz when she has that red pen in her hand...

    2. Siox, Thanks for the kind words (didn't find any mispellings or duplicate words). You do a great job yourself. Each person who critiques my stuff makes it better. Miss you at C&C. Hopefully you're writing away.

    3. I WAS actually wonderng if I wood make any erors; or grammatical fo paws, since you--Alice--might be reading it.

      Thank goodness...I apparently handled the nervousness without any glaring goof-ups...

      (I miss you, too. But those third graders are quite alluring, in their own way. And since there is no better job in the universe, I'm stickin' with it.)
