We could all use a little humor right now, and I hope you might have a story to contribute to my book which will be released this Christmas season (by December 1). The title, It Wasn't Funny...Then is a collection of most embarrassing moments. My deadline for submissions is NOVEMBER 1 and can be as short as a paragraph up to 3-500 words. Because of the content, I promise discretion, and I can keep your identity anonymous to every one but me, if you wish.
To give you an idea of what I'm looking for, here are some examples that will appear in the book: one woman stood up to eulogize her father at his memorial service and had a "break wind" moment, another had Montezuma's revenge while playing video poker at the casino and left a trail of brown spots running out the door, and another couple was "discovered" at an inopportune moment by their 15 year old son.
Please consider submitting a story--the world could use a laugh and writers are the perfect ones to do it! Please submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
