Tell Your Story of Breakthrough

Hey there, Benecia Ponder here with an invitation. I have a passionate call to bring authors together and see their stories told. That’s behind everything I do here at Inspirational Authors. ‘

Recently, I have been inspired to develop a series of devotional books featuring a variety of inspirational authors.  I’m inviting you to jump in to be part of the upcoming book.

Basically, I’m inviting you to contribute a short devotional message to be included.  A small story with an encouraging nugget for the reader to take into their day.

When you think about it, a devotional is the perfect bite-sized storytelling inspiration tool.

This project is open to all applicants. If you’re an experienced author, I’ll be honored to welcome your contribution. If you’re new, this can be your first real experience of being published in a safe supportive space.

There is a $500 fee to be included with an eye for providing a high-quality publication you’ll be proud of.

  • You’ll be one of 25 different authors.
  • Your contribution can be up to 1000 words long. This includes your brief personal bio.
  • Private Story Consultation: You’ll have up to 30 minutes of private consultation time with me to support you in getting started.
  • Professional Editing: Your submission will be edited by a professional copy editor. If you need additional support to write your story, we're here for you!
  • Award-Winning Book Design: The book will have a professional cover design, interior design, copyediting, and proofreading.
  • Writing Parties: We will have special story writing parties for co-authors to get a countability and support in writing your chapter.
  • Author Spotlight: We will have a book website with your author information, photo, bio, and live links.
  • We will have a Social Launch Plan with Book Launch Graphics that make you look amazing.
  • Book Release Celebration: We will execute an Amazon Book Launch Event with an eye for Bestseller Status. (Our last book collaboration was #1 in 15 categories, at release and 5 months later!)
  • Author Copies: You’ll receive three paperback copies shipped to you in advance of the book launch for your own photo opportunities.

What is an Inspirational Devotional?

An Inspirational Devotional is a short, powerful message that uplifts, encourages, and inspires.

Is this project only for "religious" messages?

No. This project is for inspiration stories. While many of the stories might have a spiritual aspect, this project is open to all. My main vision for this project is to uplift and inspire.

Can you help me write my story?

Absolutely! If your application is accepted, you will receive access to a private 1:1 story consultation where we will work on your story together.

I have more questions, can we talk?

Sure! Click here to schedule a free call with me and I'll answer your questions.
