Become a published author in 2019

Being a published author is a common bucket list item.  Many people dream of having their name and their words in print but few go on to realise their dream.  Stories remain unwritten and wisdom is hidden inside rather than gifted to the world.

Don’t let your dreams die. Don’t hide your words and your stories.  Be brave and shine brightly.

Become a published author in 2019.

Holding a book that contains your name and your words —words written from the heart — is deeply satisfying.  It’s a rite of passage; moving from ‘I’ll write a book one day’ to ‘I’ve done it!’.

The accomplishment of being a published author brings confidence and it’s a major achievement to put on your CV or resumé.  If you have your own business, being a published author adds authority to your brand.

Writing can bring up many fears and it’s daunting when you need to produce 50,000+ words for a book.  It might seem like too big a dream to realise when you haven’t been published before.  Don’t worry! There’s a way for you to become a published author without the stress and without the large wordcount.

Be part of an exciting new book

Early next year, I’m publishing Monday Morning Soul Missives, an anthology by mind-body-spirit writers.  It’s a collection of inspirational articles and flash-fiction stories to bring love, hope and motivation to Monday mornings (or anytime the reader wants a dose of ‘feel good’).

And I need you to help me bring this book to life.

I am looking for creative writers who dream of being published next year and would like to be part of an exciting new indie publishing company:  The Quiet Rebel Bureau.

Your contribution and sponsorship will not only give you the opportunity to be a published author in 2019 but you’ll also help a soulful, heartfelt small business take its first steps.  The Quiet Rebel Bureau wants to share the voices of those quiet writer rebels who have wisdom, insight and stories to give through the written word.  We will help Mind-Body-Spirit and Self-Help authors shine their soul-light in the world while taking the stress out of publishing.

Coming in 2019: Monday Morning Soul Missives

Let me tell you more about Monday Morning Soul Missives.

It’s an anthology – a collection of work.  This means the wordcount is much more doable (up to 2,000 words).  Not only will you have your article or story published but you’ll also have a paragraph to promote yourself and your business.

All sponsorships to the Monday Morning Soul Missives feature inclusion into the anthology with either a flash-fiction entry or an inspirational article.  All entries must begin with the following sentence:

“Dear Reader, it’s Monday morning and _____”

You can submit flash-fiction or an article up to 2,000 words (minimum 1,000).  The theme is to uplift and inspire the reader.

What can you write about?

Sponsorship for Monday Morning Soul Missives is open to Mind-Body-Spirit writers.  You can write fiction or non-fiction.  The theme is to spread a message of hope or positivity, share wisdom or give insight.  There are no other parameters apart from your work should begin with:

“Dear Reader, it’s Monday morning and _____”

Why Monday Morning?  If you’ve ever felt the dread of a new week beginning then you know how important it is to change your mindset and feel hope in your soul.  Think of this book as a love letter to a stranger who might be having a difficult time and needs uplifting.

Topics could include:

  • Flash fiction with a happy ending or positive message
  • Accounts of random acts of kindness
  • Angelic or spiritual encounters
  • Personal stories of overcoming struggles
  • Finding happiness or purpose
  • Messages from ‘beyond’ that inspire, motivate and give hope
  • Spiritual guidance

Be authentic and let the words flow through you.  I have faith that the Universe will bring the stories that need to be shared and heard.

However, if you want to pitch an idea before committing to write, you can send me an email at [email protected]

It’s a win-win situation for all involved.

You won’t have to worry about editing, formatting or the technical process of publishing.  And if you need advice or guidance, you can email me, a published author with experience of the publishing industry (writing, blogging, editing, digital magazine publication and book publishing).
