  1. Thank you, Donna! This looks great. Once I recover from first son trip, moving my sister this week, helping second son next week, and planning a trip for hubby I will get to this hoping nothing else crops up! I love a couple of the titles.

  2. Donna--Thanks for sharing this information and the link. It would be great to support Robin and Rocking Horse Publishing by at least submitting.

    Again, thank you...

  3. I'll have to put on my thinking cap...

  4. Thanks for the tip. It worked for me last time! I'll see what I can do.

  5. Thanks for sharing such great opportunities for writers, Donna. Write on!

    I'm going to share this on twitter now.

  6. Hi Claudia,
    Wow! You have a busy schedule. The Empty Nest anthology might be calling your name.

    Hi Sioux,
    You are welcome. I try to post information about local small publishers when I find out about calls for submission.

    Hi Pat,
    I'm sure you'll come up with something wonderful!

    Hi Val,
    That's right! Your ghost story was in Spirits of St. Louis Vol I.

    Hi Clara,
    You are welcome. Thanks for stopping by and sharing with your Twitter followers.

  7. You always have the best stuff here. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Tammy. RHP did a fine job with Spirits of St. Louis Vol I.

  8. I have a feeling we'll see your byline in one or more of these books, Donna! Found it so interesting, your post with the editor/book reviews. We just don't have book reviews like we used to and I miss that, but boy. Three hundred books a week? That's A LOT of books!

  9. Donna--I forgot to mention...You not only write wonderful stories, your titles are often intriguing. They always make my ears prick up, as I wait until I can find out exactly what the significance of the title is/what it means.

    "A Patchwork of Hope" is yet another title that piques my interest. I can't wait until I can read your next CS story.

  10. Hi Cathy,
    It is a lot of books to review!

    Hi Sioux,
    Thanks. I hope you like the story; it is really special to me. Maybe we can do a signing together?

  11. Thanks, Donna, for letting us know. Do you have to live in the St. Louis area to submit?
