It’s In The Mail . . . May 19, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Books & Movies, Humor, Poetry, Writing & Writers.

Most of the mail we receive in a given day, week, and month is JUNK, pure and simple. 

Definitely a case where “less would be more.” 

In fact, we’d be better off if our mailbox doubled as a paper shredder . . . since we shred 6 out of every 7 pieces of mail as soon as it’s opened.

That said, every once in a while, we get some “fun mail” ~ like the announcement we received this week that our oldest nephew, Nathan, is graduating from high school.

High school?!

Seems like just yesterday that we were teaching him how to say “ba~na~na.” 

Today, we received news that “our copy of  The Very Best WEbook Poetry is in the mail and headed our way!”


Last year, WEbook held a poetry vote to select poems for inclusion in the anthology. 

Lots of wonderful poems by WEbook friends made the cut ~ as did one of mine!  Can’t wait to see them all in print.

Finally, some fun mail that won’t make me feel like the hands of time got stuck in the fast forward mode.

Or will it???  The title of my poem . . .  Moments Slip Away.  Figures!

Race ya to the mailbox!

Congratulations on the publication! Is there still a chance I might get something in the mail for my submission…? It has been a year already.

By the way, I love the idea of turning the mail box into a paper shredder…!

Do you have a poem in the Anthology?

WEbook sent out the signed contracts a couple of days ago. I got an e-mail today saying the book is in the mail.

I’m excited to see it!

Thanks for the announcement — Since I’m not home to get my mail (and haven’t called our son to go through the stack for about three weeks — aaah!), I didn’t know that bit of information. It will be fun to have it at home waiting for me when we return.

You are apt to need an industrial grade shredder by the time you get home!

As fast as time is flying, it does seem like you’ve been in Spain for a long, long time.

It will be fun to see our poetry in print.

That is wonderful Nancy, congratulations!

This is the third anthology I’ve appeared in ~ not quite as exciting as having a book published, but it’s a step in that direction. : )

I read your poem that got into the publication. Very nice! And even though this was back in May – congratulations! 😀

Thanks, Maggie.

I don’t know that WEbook is acting as a direct publisher anymore. I think they are more focused on Page to Fame and Agent in a Box. But in the 2 years I wrote on WEbook, I had 3 items (2 poems and an essay) selected for publication in anthologies.

Definitely encouraged me to keep writing! 🙂
