You’re Invited to a Party! My Short Story Published in Chicken Soup

Chicken Soup for the Soul, Angels and Miracles

Hello, My Faithful Followers!

My short story called “The Desk” is being debuted in the new Chicken Soup for the Soul: Angels and Miracles book, AVAILABLE TOMORROW, November 1, 2016, at a book store near you! (Or online, of course! Here–> at AMAZON)


I’m beyond excited about being part of the Chicken Soup for the Soul family now. It’s truly an honor.

This particular collection of 101 stories (cherry picked out of somewhere between 5000 and 6000 submissions!) is a widely varied collection of stories relating to . . . well, it’s much easier to allow the Chicken Soup folks explain it . . .

Miracles, answered prayers, cases of divine intervention—they happen every day—strengthening our faith, giving us hope, and proving that good things do happen to good people!

Miracles are all around us—we just have to look to see them. These powerful stories will deepen your faith and give you hope that good things do happen to good people. From guardian angels to divine messengers, from miraculous healing to messages from heaven, from mysterious dreams that come true to divine coincidence, you’ll be in awe as you read these 101 stories of true wonder and inspiration. These stories are written by real people—ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences—who are just as surprised that these things happened to them as we are to read about them.

TOMORROW, NOVEMBER 1, 2016, the Chicken Soup folks are hosting a TWITTER PARTY for us contributors, with an open invitation for family and friends to join us. I’d love to have you in attendance if you can make it!

If you attend, make sure to give a shout out to me! My twitter tag is:  @SusanMaddyJ

Thanks to my family and friends who support me in my baby steps in the big, big world of writing and my big, big endeavors to find my place in it! I love you so much for encouraging me to dream that big!

Warmest love and regards,

Morning Coffee with the International Space Station

Check the schedule and make a date to have coffee with the International Space Station. We did just that this past Tuesday morning around 6:40 a.m. in Southern California. Go ahead. Check the schedule for yourself. Then, spend a minute marveling as the space station races across the sky in plain sight over your home. Remind yourself that there’s a half-dozen people riding in that thing, cruising along at over 17,000 miles per hour, circling the planet every 90 minutes or so, and then try to tell yourself that you don’t see miracles around you every day.

Venus Fly Trap. One of nature's crazy cool and miraculous plants.

Miracles come in all forms, natural and unnatural–from flowers that instinctively open and close and even eat bugs (like the good ‘ole Venus Fly Trap) to man-made contraptions orbiting around the earth. Have a sip of coffee, remind yourself how blessed you are, and then give a wave to those brave astronauts floating around in space. They’re checking out YOU while you’re checking out THEM. Be a part of it!

Have an awesome day!
