During my Birthday Brainstorming session, my tribe and I concluded that it’s time for me to get published! But…
I want to publish YOUR story!
My stories can wait. I want to get YOU published in a FanTABulous Women compilation book! I’m thinking of short stories of about 500 words, submitted by you and edited and curated by me. Let ME get YOU published!
I’m not sure if the book will have one central theme with many different stories that fit the theme…or if the stories will have several themes that emerge as YOU submit them. I believe that will become clear as I begin to collect them–like something of a patchwork quilt.
Let’s get started!
For now, I’ll be collecting your stories (and eventually a short bio and possibly a picture, too) and see where it goes. Of course I’ll keep you in the loop as the project evolves. I’d like to feature CEOs, stay-at-home moms, grandmas, 20-somethings…anyone with a story to tell and a willingness to “put yourself out there.” Submission guidelines and such will also be a work in progress.
I know some of you have a story in your heart, just waiting to be set free! Some of you may have dozens of stories! Here are some ideas to get you started.
- overcoming a challenge
- getting a new perspective
- story of a faith journey
- a funny story of virtually any topic!
- lessons in motherhood (step mom issues, pregnancy loss, learning to let go, etc.)
- secrets to business success
- life taking an unexpected turn
- lessons in love
- dealing with loss
- finding joy
- so many others!
So! Wanna get published?
Want to be a part of a collaborative effort that results in a digital and hard copy of a beautiful book that you can give to your friends, family and colleagues?
Get on the mailing list! Don’t worry, I will only contact you with pertinent information, deadlines and updates. And the first step doesn’t obligate you to ANYthing. Yes, eventually there will be waivers and such but for now, I just need to know who is interested.
Know someone who might be a good fit for this project, too? Feel free to send them the link to the Book Project Page or share this post on your social media sites.
Expect an email at the first of the year to launch this very special project!
