ANTHOLOGY / COLLABORATIVE BOOKS
Have you been thinking about writing a book . . .
but don't know where to start?
Start by writing ONE chapter in a professionally produced anthology —
OR sponsor your own and add a profit center!
What is an anthology?
An anthology is simply a collection of essays written by different authors, brought together in one book; also known as a “Collaborative Book.”
You can either contribute a single chapter to an anthology that is already in the works, or you can publish an anthology where you invite various authors to contribute chapters on a particular theme.
THE BEST PART?
As a contributing author, your cost is typically 1/10th the cost of publishing a solo book by yourself.
This gives you the chance to be a published author — without the financial expense or time involved in writing an entire book on your own.
When each author shares and promotes the book to their own audiences, you get exposure to new readers. Through this process of collaboration, more people learn about you and your unique offerings, at a greatly reduced price.
"(Cathy) created the Anthology Series business model as means of
promoting and supporting women business owners around the world.
(Her) expertise allowed us to bring our book, "The Anatomy of Accomplishment"
from concept to the bookshelf. (Her) leadership allows women everywhere an
opportunity to participate in the empowering world of entrepreneurship."
— Erin Joy, Founder, CEO, Erin Joy Companies
There are two ways you can participate in an anthology . . .
1. Contribute a Single Chapter.
We always have several anthologies in process at any given time and many of those sponsors would be happy to include you as one of their contributors if your chapter fits their theme. Chapter length typically runs between 1,500 and 2,000 words. You will be assigned a Writing Coach to help you craft your chapter, and you even get to include a short bio at the end, as well as your contact information.
“Promoting my book with the other authors gave me the opportunity
to be introduced to all of THEIR contacts!”

2. Become a Curator and Publish Your Own Anthology
When you become a Curator of your own anthology, we set you up as your own publisher and you get to invite the other contributing authors. The best part is that everyone shares in the cost of publishing and promoting your book.
As a sponsor, you get to establish the theme, the title, and the guest list. You also write the introduction to the book and your own chapter, and the rest of the book is written by the other authors.
We'll organize all the details — from contracts and invoicing to introducing your authors to their writing coach, to setting up online meet n' greets, overseeing the timeline, and handling book orders.

"Anthology books are a true form of Collaboration. You and other
authors write your stories, promote your book which gives you exposure
to all the other author’s contacts as well as yours. It is a true win-win-win
situation for everyone – the readers, the writers, and the publisher."
