the process

Becoming a Positive Powerful Women Author is simple.

1. Complete your submission. (Our coveted author slots are limited to 25 for each book.)

Please use the following guidelines when preparing and submitting your story.

  • Your story should be no more than 1,500 words
  • Use single spacing.
  • Put only 1 space after periods.
  • Include the title of your story and your name.
  • Choose a positive/inspirational quote to put under your Chapter title.

Author’s Biography:

  • No more than 250 words
  • Share your business/expertise and any accomplishments, links to your website.

Proof your work! It’s always best to have several others proof it as well to make sure it makes sense and has no grammatical or spelling errors.

Submit your story to Submit@PositivePowerfulWomen.com in a Word doc attachment   

2. Editing and Production Process

Once you submit your story, it will be sent to a proof reader and then to a copy editor. A copy editor will correct spelling and grammatical errors only, not content. If the editor advises that a story needs content editing, there may be an additional charge of $0.02 per word. After editing, you will receive your chapter for review prior to publication. You will have the opportunity to make changes only once.
