    Ted T: Hey! Congrats -- good to go with a big high-five to boot.

    I interviewed that publisher, on the radio in San Diego, when they released their first book, "Chicken Soup for the Soul" -- It was a small operation then and has just kept on growing.

    It's a great addition to your platform.

    Good luck.

    jktoolejr: I voted for your story in the 100 word dash contest - it was the least cliche. I think winning is down to making it available for ratings rather than merit.
