Your Limited–Time Opportunity to Become a Published Author is Back
We are proud to collaborate once again with award-winning publisher Sacred Stories Publishing and internationally acclaimed author Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos as we reach out for submissions for the second book in the Sacred Stories of Transformation series.
In 2019, we launched Chaos to Clarity (the first book in this series) to great success! The book was quickly and positively received worldwide becoming a bestseller. Clearly, readers are looking for stories that inspire their own transformation. On the heels of our success, we are now compiling the second anthology in the series, to be launched in the Fall of 2020.
Our unique alliance provides a streamlined approach for authors to gain affordable access to the professional publishing marketplace. Participants will collaborate with a world-class publishing team which includes professional copy and content editing, masterful design, and worldwide distribution. Impactful promotional marketing strategies and support include collaboration with professional global media firms.
For this new and unique pathway for qualified participants to become published authors, we are seeking personal stories that embrace the positive aspects of Change.
Challenges and joy are the spice-of-life and when mixed together can create positive life transformations. They also create great stories! The writing of your story can be cathartic and freeing with the potential to inspire deep healing and resolution in yourself and others. It’s a win-win. Can it get any better than that? Yes! You have an opportunity to share your story and become a published author in a best-selling book series.
Why Contribute to an Anthology?
Anthologies are highly readable because the stories can be read in small doses. Whether you are a first-time or seasoned author, being part of an anthology gives you the recognition of being a published author without the stress and unknowns of doing it on your own, including:
- Author Status. Being an author affords you instant credibility and adds to your credentials for future books. You can also leverage this to uncover new opportunities using it as your “calling card” if you are in business.
- Less Effort and Expense on Your Part. Self-publishing, as well as traditionally publishing a full-length book, is quite an endeavor and can be quite costly. Contributing to an anthology enables you to focus on writing your best story.
- You’re in Good Company. Your story will be included with those of other skilled writers and subject experts. Together, you will be creating a beautiful work that you can be proud of.
- Collaborative Support. Since all anthology authors will likely be promoting the book to their own networks, this helps you become known in multiple new markets.

Now Accepting Submissions (Deadline April 30th)
Much like Joseph Campbell’s classic hero/heroine’s journey, we would like you to share how a significant situation in your life impacted you emotionally, psychologically, physically and/or spiritually. Tell us how you began your journey or call to adventure, the trials and tests that showed up in the midst of it, and how you ultimately stepped beyond the threshold into a new life. While the depth of your transformation story will be inherent, we encourage you to write with a sense of buoyancy and hope. The tone should be cheerful and lively, even playful and satirical. It should convey how you found the “funny in the funk” and how the situation taught you to 1) not take life so seriously and 2) feel great joy.
Possible topics include:
– Experiencing an illness or loss
– Starting a new career, business, or retirement
– Becoming a parent or an empty nester
– Caring for a loved one who is elderly or sick
– Marriage, divorce, or dating
– Relocating mayhem
– Something else

What Authors in Chaos to Clarity Say About Working With Us:
What a personally inspiring journey it was to become an author, supported by Sacred Stories Publishing! Being part of a collaborative book was not something I had ever considered and the book itself is a testament to what happens through collaboration – an enriching experience to be shared by all who contributed as well as all who read it.
It was a great experience to be included in the Sacred Stories series. Kat and Patricia were extremely dedicated to the success of the book and their support and interest made sharing such private and personal experiences very meaningful. There were many opportunities to grow through the writing and media interviews. Overall, it was a very positive experience that I would highly recommend.
Contributing to the book Chaos to Clarity opened my eyes to new interests and offered me great opportunities to share my story and my side work as a professional coach. It was wonderful to work with such an engaged team and it is an experience that I recommend to those who share the passion for writing or looking to help people all around the world.
