Writing powerful evergreen books in the realms of human rights, social justice and cultural diversity was always going to cause a level of controversy, but knowing what I knew, there was no way I was not going to write them.
And this is the thing with those of us who write books which are destined to change the world and create positive and powerful social change for all: we have to share what we know. We have to write the books, and we have to speak up.
Finding a coach who has the capacity to hold space for the journey of a change making author – both during the writing period and after the launch of the book – especially after the launch – wasn’t easy. In fact, I never found a coach capable of this, so I became the coach I needed so others didn’t have to go it alone.
Being able to offer powerful and positive coaching to other authors who choose to write the kind of books the world needs to read fills me with great joy and gratitude because I get to work with some of the very best humans out there.
Working with everyone on a 1:1 basis isn’t possible, so I have created an Author Academy which benefits both activists and non-activists alike and includes self-study courses, group programmes, one off Master Classes and bi-monthly group coaching sessions.
Finding a publisher who delivers the kind of high level service and quality I wanted was also a challenge for me – I was too risky. This is why my company provides publishing and marketing services, with strong strategic foundations, to all those wanting to publish books of a social justice, human rights and culturally diverse change maker nature.
Books of a controversial nature which make ‘the establishment’ and ‘the system’ uncomfortable, challenge the status quo, expose corruption and abuses of power, as well as publishing true life crime and trauma stories, are our speciality, and we love opening people’s hearts and minds to what is really going on in the world.
Together we really can make a difference in the world, and we can create global change one reader, one family and one community at a time – but first we need to own our voice, deliver our message and be prepared to take action.
Our time is now, and we are the change makers the world has been waiting for.
