At Creative Courage Press, we believe in supporting the whole author — from the you who writes the book, to the you who engages with readers, to the you who understands the business of publishing. The ROI we’re looking for is more than a return on investment, but a return on integrity, too. Aligning the book you publish with your true self’s purpose on this planet is vital to the kind of collaboration we are inviting.
Are you writing a book that supports your current work in the world? Is it nonfiction, self-help, or memoir? Transformational leadership? A spiritual twist, or soulful feel? How are your refreshing ideas remarkable and how will your book and life’s work contribute to creating more courage in the world (even a corner of it)?
What would (did) you do with more courage? What kind of courage have you needed to muster to become an author, and in your life besides being an author? How does your book’s message speak to creating courage for the complexity of being human?
That’s what we’d like to know, on top of the typical questions for book proposals. Please send a query letter that answers the questions above with your thoughtful consideration, along with your proposal. Sans agent is fine.
Please allow at least six to eight weeks for a response. We have several authors in our queue already, and intend to start small, so please answer our specific questions.
If your manuscript is not done yet and you’d like an author coach (or more hand-holding, midwifery, mentoring, developmental editing), that’s when Whole-Author Coaching comes in.
