Just got the word that I made it into Chicken Soup for the Chocolate Lover's Soul (due out in November 2007). Now there's a book I can sink my teeth into!

Why am I suddenly hungry?

Thanks. But now I want a fancy newspaper job like yours!

Girl Scout cookies all around. I'm buying!

Thanks, everybody! You're the best. Let's celebrate with sugary snacks! Callalily, didn't I hear that you are Supreme Brownie Maker?

Holy Fishpaste, as my kids say. (I think there's a little too much SpongeBob going on in my house, but I digress.)

CONGRATULATIONS Amy! What a cool opportunity. And to think I rub tiaras with you over in Freelance (I won't mention the other thing! ;) )

So happy for your success!

You mean the other THONG! (Giraffes have no tact.)

Thank you for your kind words. The support we have over in Freelance is one thing that makes it easy to "Just Hit Send."

A-dood! Couldn't have happened to a nicer giraffe!

Ameeeeeee! Congratulations! So that's what you've been saving those Thin Mints for! If I would have known that, I wouldn't have snuck into your cupboard and eaten them all. --Sorry! :D :D :D

You're the best! What is your story about? Can you tell us?


05-18-2007, 06:32 AM
Yay, Amy.

05-18-2007, 06:51 AM
Thanks everybody! I get more excited reading your notes than when I got the acceptance. Welllllll, almost more excited. I can't imagine not having you guys to share things with.

Ltd. you know I'll share my cookies with you--but save me a bite, willya? We're gonna need some snacks on our next road trip. Pretty soon we'll fire up the party bus!

<munch munch> ...Ah fink I knowuh bwhere bwe can find fum muwah -- holb on...

<gulp. Ahhh>

I think I know where we can find some more!

So Amy, will you be the only Amy in the book? Or is your last name really Doodle? How will we know which one is yours??? (Then again, how can I even ask that? I have a feeling I know your writing well enough to pick it out of a pile!)

Then again, did you enter the Freelance Contest this month? I'm trying to remember if I thought one of those was yours.
