      Updated Call for Submissions: Essays & Cartoons!
      http://www.drtpress.com/anthology.html

      Is your child easy to love, but hard to parent? DRT Press is seeking personal
      essays written by parents of children with ADD, ADHD and/or other mental,
      emotional, and behavioral disorders for a book about the experience of parenting
      children with such conditions, for publication (expected) in Spring 2011.
      Compensation includes 10 copies of the completed book and unlimited discounted
      copies. The book will be co-edited by author/editor/publisher Adrienne Ehlert
      Bashista, Publisher, DRT Press and Kay Marner, a freelance writer who
      contributes regularly to ADDitude magazine, and blogs for ADDitudeMag.com.
      We're thrilled to announce that everyone's favorite ADHD expert, Dr. Edward
      Hallowell, will write the introduction for the book. Hallowell, a renowned
      psychiatrist, is the bestselling author of 16 books, including ADHD classics
      Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction, and the newer,
      inspiration-filled Super Parenting for ADD. Hallowell's involvement takes Bless
      Your Heart one giant leap toward becoming what we dream it will be—a source of
      affirmation and inspiration to parents raising kids who make it a challenge to
      stay one step ahead in the parenting game.
      ***NEW***(Updated 5/2010) In addition to essays, we are now seeking comic strips
      which illustrate the same topics. Comics will be printed in black and white
      only; no color. Because creating comics requires a specific skill set,
      contributions will be accepted from persons who are not parents and caregivers
      of challenging children, as well as those who are, as long as the work captures
      the parenting experience. Contributors will receive the same compensation, and
      accept the same marketing responsibilities, as essayists (described in the
      complete Call for Submissions—link below).
      The deadline for submissions has been extended through June 2010. If you are
      interested in contributing, but need additional time, please email
      <kay(at)kaymarner.com> (replace (at) with @).
