New Story About Being A Mom

The big announcement for today is that I am published in a brand new anthology which has just been released on Amazon. It says you can pre-order but regular orders should be forthcoming any day now.

Publishing Syndicate is the publisher of the book, along with several others in the Not Your Mother's Book on... series. I'm also in the Travel book in this series.

The mom book should have all mothers who read it nodding their heads as they relate to various stories. There are 64 stories in the book, some about things that happened with adult kids and others about when moms were raising kids.

My story took place when my son was in the middle grades in school. An incident one morning made me aware that my little boy was growing up. He cared about what girls thought about him. Oh-oh! Time to have 'the talk' with him. But who would do it? Me or his dad? And what would he say, or me for that matter? How much did we need to tell this child? The problem was solved in a way that let both my husband and me off the hook. Thus, the story title--Off The Hook.

I'm proud to be a part of this new series. Each book is edited by very qualified writers along with Ken and Dahlynn McKowen who are the publishers. If you would like to submit a story for one of the future titles, check the guidelines page.


  1. Thanks for the post, Nancy! And I love your story. In fact, many of the stories in the book are downright hilarious! I'm anxious to hear what your readers think of the book. Congratulations on your published story!

    1. Thanks Diana, my story happened a long time ago but it's still pertinent today and I've thought about it many times over the years. Said boy in the story is now a 46 yr old dad of two teens.
