April has helped hundreds of women build their brand authority through podcast appearances, speaking engagements, and book launches. She has a philosophy that "everybody has a story"... and when you share your story, you shine a light.
and the icing on the cake is...
At the end of the 9-month program, your story will be shared with thousands to help teach and inspire others!
You'll have a book in your hands, titled "Shine Your Light" with your name and photo on the back cover!
You’ll boost your authority by being able to say you are a published author with a book registered with The Library of Congress!
You’ll gain valuable insights and connections to support you in your future writing and publishing ventures.
You’ll become a member of the Positivity Lady Press book family entitling you to future discounts and publishing opportunities.
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 8, 2023, with first draft submissions due by March 31, 2023.
But what about all the logistics? What will I need to do?
The beauty of working with April & Lanette (Lightbeamers and Positivity Lady Press) is we'll take care of all the logistics from editing to design to printing. All you need to do is focus on sharing/ writing 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 as a Speaker at one of our previous Storytelling Symposiums and special TEDx training.)
How long does my story have to be?
Ideally your story will be approximately 3500-4000 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.
