You’ve had a story burning in your heart and soul for a long time.

Something you personally experienced.

Something life-changing that you want to share with the world to show that survival, healing, personal transformation, and love are truly possible.

You want your story to shine a light on the good in the world.

So you’ve explored options for publishing, but it was too confusing, too expensive, too time consuming.

So you put it off.

Now’s your time to become a published author, through a simple process that’s affordable and will allow you to sell your book for a profit.

What is it?

Each Anthology will contain 10 Inspiring Stories, which will each be 5,000 words.

To have your work considered for inclusion in one of the Anthologies, please submit a 500-word sample from your intended work of non-fiction through Submittable. We charge a non-refundable reading fee of $44.

Please include the following on your submission:

  • Your name, email address, and phone number;

  • The title of your work;

  • A bio of 100 words maximum.

We are selecting stories for publication that are inspiring becuase they showcase the human spirit of resilience, triumph over tragedy, personal transformation in the face of adversity, forgiveness in difficult situations that result in peace and love, personal empowerment after tremendous struggles, and finding the courage to live one’s truth.

Your story should convey deep emotion and elicit strong responses from the reader through the use of details, dialogue, and engaging storytelling. Each story should showcase the good in ourselves, in other people, and in society. No graphic language, sex, violence, or hate will be considered for publication. If your story is selected for publication, the fee of $5,000 will cover line editing, proofreading, and all publication costs.

If your story is selected for publication but you need and/or want assistance with the writing process, Two Sisters Writing & Publishing can provide services for Book Coaching, Ghostwriting, and Rewriting. These services are provided for additional fees for which a special discount will be applied for anthology submissions.

We will also provide instructional webinars via video conference calls with our authors to provide guidance for your storytelling and writing, as well as answer questions.

If we go forward with publishing your story, you will be required to sign an Affidavit and Release of Liability, stating that the story is an original work, that you own the copyright, and that you indemnify Two Sisters Writing & Publishing of responsibility should the story contain any plagiarism, copyright violations, or other problems.

  • You retain the copyright to your story.

  • You may submit more than one sample per theme; however, only one entry per author will be included in each anthology.

  • You may submit a writing sample to all themes.

  • We do not accept stories that have been published previously or that are scheduled for publication elsewhere.

  • Reading fees will not be returned or refunded.

  • You must be over 18 to enter.

  • Void where prohibited.

  • As for publication dates? We are going to publish the Anthologies whose subject matter attract the most entries, first. If we receive an onslaught of entries for Weight Loss Success Stories, we will publish that first. Know that your story will be published along with nine others of equally high calibre and positive impact.

Each author will receive X-number of copies of the book, which will be available for sale on,, and 39,000 online retailers around the world. Authors will also have the option to purchase unlimited copies of the book at wholesale cost and sell for a profit at the retail price; this can be especially lucrative at in-person book signings, speaking engagements, trainings, and events.

The sky is the limit!

Two Sisters Writing & Publishing would be honored to share your uplifting words in our new Anthologies of Inspiring Stories. Further questions? Contact us!
