David Leonhardt is The Happy Guy, freelance writer and author of four business and self-help books and a contributor to two anthologies, including this one to the left … is looking for your help. There is some cash and a byline being offered for stories that are published. (feel free to check out this book from Amazon and get a feel for what he’s looking for! 😀)
CORRECTION: The above is not one of the anthologies David Leonhardt contributed to. But he will be one of two editors of the upcoming dog anthology.

* The one-time option to purchase 10+ copies for friends, family, gifts, etc at a 50% discount when the book is published.
If you want your submission to be accepted, it is extremely important that you read the following information. We are looking for uplifting stories only. Stories of joy. Moments to remember. Stories of beauty and life and love and humor. We are NOT seeking stories about frustration, sadness, or overcoming challenges. If there is a moral to the story, gently introduced, that is fine, but we are NOT seeking stories about the moral. We want stories that are powerful and moving that will lift readers up out of their seats, happy, smiling, even laughing. And don’t forget to mention your dog’s breed.
. . .
Timeline: The book is to include 40 stories. In this preliminary phase, we are seeking 10 stories by May 31, 2007, to use in test-marketing and in the completed book. Both The Happy Guy Marketing and Snapshots of Heaven expect the full book to be published once the test marketing phase runs its course.
Format: Please provide your submission in a Microsoft Word document. You can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. All submissions should have at least 750 words and at most 1000 words. Any submission not within this guideline will be fed to the dog next door.
