PUBLISHING OPPORTUNITIES

If you want to become a best-seller, we can help make it happen and we will share the gold badge (or coveted orange Amazon banner) for all the world to see! Here’s the truth though. Your story is already a best-seller, whether it gets the title and shiney badge or not. You know this. We know this. This is why we put our focus on helping you make the greatest impact with your story instead of going toe-to-toe with algorithms to get your book to the top of the charts. We have witnessed first-hand the impact of publishing a collection of real life stories written by Canadian Womxn and we knew that if we were able to impact as many people as we did with our first publication, we could invoke an unparalleled amount of motivation, self belief, hope, courage and actual positive change if we just kept writing. So, we want more Canadian Womxn to write books and we will get them published. Period.

We are currently producing two in-house book series that will publish hundreds of stories of Canadian womxn over the next 3 years. These series will feature a collection of hundreds of Canadian Womxn sharing their experiences in life and business, for the purpose of show others what’s possible.

Whether you become an author in this series, or a reader of the books in this series, we thank you for support as we embark on this powerful project that we know is sure to make waves, move mountains and blaze trails for Candian Womxn for generations to come.

We know that not everyone is interested in writing collaborative books, which is why we have introduced this new service to help even more Canadian Womxn publish their work! We are not a traditional publishing house in the sense that we own your work once it is published. In fact, you own your work with us, including 100% of the royalties from your sales.

Package Option #2: Writing Support

Tax incl. Payment plans available up to 12 months

While some authors like their space and the ability to write however they want with their own style and flare, others prefer some support along the way to help get their messages to really land! Now, don’t confuse writing support with developmental editing. In fact, we aren’t a fan of developmental editing because we feel it edits you right out of the pages. We want your book to sound like you wrote it. Our writing coaching is designed to help talk you through the components of your story and help you to craft what you’re wanting to say, in a way that gives the reader a powerful experience in return. Our writing coaching also helps you to stay true to yourself and your own writing style and voice throughout the production of your book.

We want you to pull the reader right into the pages alongside you in your journey and our coaching services will help you do just that. With this package option, you’ll receive the following:

Create your own collaboration!

We get approached A LOT by Canadian Womxn with their ideas on collaborative books we could publish at The Great Canadian Woman inc. As we have settled on our two major series, The Great Canadian Woman - She is Strong and Free & The Great Canadian Woman - She Means Business, we don’t want to rule out other incredibly powerful productions we could assist you with. So we thought, why not let us help you create your own collaborative book! Here’s how it works!

Janet has an idea to create a book on Womxn’s sexuality and she believes she has a big enough draw of Womxn in her network to contribute to her collaborative book. Janet decides she will have 15 Womxn in her book, and selects the according package with The Great Canadian Womxn inc. and receives a customized marketing kit to aid in the recruitment of authors to fill the spaces in her book. Janet gets to decide what she will charge per author and any payment plan options she wishes to offer, which means she has full control over her own profitability, which will help Janet a) earn more money and b) decide how much she wants to invest into other things like marketing, PR or other perks for her authors. Janet then in turn, pays The Great Canadian Woman inc. per author being published in her book! Janet works with her authors in crafting their collaborative masterpiece and The Great Canadian Woman inc. will take care of all the logistics and get the book published! Janet keeps 100% of royalties from book sales, owns the copyright to the publication itself and takes it to market however she and her authors want to! Janet essentially gets to treat this like her own publishing operation, only The Great Canadian Woman inc. takes care of the logistics and production!
