Lanette Pottle

Publisher. Podcaster. Author.
Positivity Lady Press & She Gets Published.

"I can confidently say, if I hadn’t said ‘YES!’ when the opportunity to participate in a collaborative book was offered to me in 2017, I wouldn’t be able to say these things today…

I am a #1 International Best-selling author.

I am the (solo) author of two books registered with the Library of Congress.

I am a publishing mentor helping other women achieve their dreams of becoming a published author.

I also would have missed out on all the residual benefits of these accomplishments … things like being invited to speak on the TEDx stage."

April Adams Pertuis

Story & Visibility Expert.
Speaker. Positive Encourager
LIGHTbeamers

"I can't think of a more aligned project for us at LIGHTbeamers, since our mission is to help more people tell their story so they can shine a light.

I've watched so many of you inside our Community wrestle with your story, and put dreams of writing a book on hold. Why? Because it's scary to put yourself out there in such a big, bold way!

Inside our Author Program, I will hold your hand and kick you into Action!

The Authors who walk through our Program are empowered because, not only do they discover the ins & outs of publishing, they gain confidence in their ability to tell their story in other mediums as well. This opens major doors."

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a payment plan available?

Yes, we have a 6-month payment plan available and will be offered upon author selections. 

When do we get started?

We’ll begin the coaching process on February 24,2022, with first draft submissions due by April 15th.

But what about all the logistics? What will I need to do?

The beauty of working with Lanette and Positivity Lady Press is she'll take care of all the logistics from editing to design to printing. All you need to do is focus on sharing your story.

I have a story to tell but I’ve never considered myself an author. Could this still be a fit for me?

Absolutely. The coaching and support you’ll receive -- from idea concept to marketing (and all the steps in between) makes this an equally great choice for first time authors to those who are more seasoned writers. Beyond the positive impact you’ll have in the lives of readers, this is a great step that can open many doors -- including speaking opportunities, business/ministry building, as well as paving the way for solo publishing projects.

Is coaching and mentorship with April and Lanette provided 1:1 or in a group setting?

April and Lanette will lead group coaching sessions and provide support inside our private author’s group. In addition to the group coaching, you will receive 3 personal 1:1 calls at different intervals of the program. Additional calls are available to book at a special rate of $195 each. 

Tell me more about Positivity Lady Press.

Positivity Lady Press is a small, independent publishing imprint dedicated to awakening possibilities in the lives of women through inspirational, self-help, and personal development books. It’s owned and operated by fellow LIGHTbeamer and program co-creator, Lanette Pottle. (You may remember her from last year’s Storytelling Symposium and TEDx training.)

How long does my story have to be?

Ideally your story will be approximately 3500 words but more importantly, we want you to share your story as succinctly as possible while maintaining the heart and soul of the message. The goal is to share your story in a way that connects with your readers in a powerful way. The coaching & mentoring we provide will help you accomplish this.

 What if I have more questions before applying?

Email us at [email protected] Your question(s) will be passed on to the person who can best answer it for you.
