Call for Submission : Messages from Heaven from Chicken Soup for the Soul
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Messages from Heaven 101 Miraculous Stories of Signs from Beyond, Amazing Connections, and Love that Doesn't Die
When our loved ones leave this world, our connection with them does not end. Death takes away their physical presence, but not their spirit, and we often sense them after they have gone. Sometimes we see or hear from them after they've passed, giving us signs and messages from beyond.
We want to hear from you if you have experienced the other side or received a sign or signal from a loved one who has passed. Has someone who has died come to you in a dream? Given you counsel or comfort? Have you gone beyond, but returned to life with new knowledge, insight, or awareness? Have you intuitively known the moment someone died? Share your true, touching, and astounding stories about messages from heaven or your own experiences with dying and coming back.
This book is for everyone who has a story, whether religious or secular. Please note that since we see many stories about messages from heaven in the form of rainbows, bird, butterflies, and coins, we will only be able to use a few stories on those types of messages from beyond.
Here are some possible story topics, but we know you can think of more:
Words of wisdom from a loved one who has passed
Personal exchanges with a loved one who has passed
Omens or visions from beyond
Receiving guidance or lessons from a loved one who has passed
Revelations from beyond
Apparitions from beyond
Signs from beyond from a loved one
Knowing the exact moment someone passed
Please remember, we do not like "as told to" stories. Please write in the first person about yourself or someone close to you. If you ghostwrite a story for someone else we will list their name as the author. If a story was previously published, we will probably not use it unless it ran in a small circulation venue. Let us know where the story was previously published in the "Comments" section of the submission form. If the story was published in a past Chicken Soup for the Soul book, please do not submit it.
If your story is chosen, you will be a published author and your bio will be printed in the book if you so choose. You will also receive a check for $200 and 10 free copies of your book, worth more than $100. You will retain the copyright for your story and you will retain the right to resell it.
THIS IS A NEW ADDITION TO OUR SPRING 2012 LINE-UP, WITH A QUICK PRODUCTION SCHEDULE! DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS OCTOBER 3.
