POLLY LETOFSKY WAS 37 YEARS OLD WHEN SHE SOLD EVERYTHING SHE OWNED, left her home in Colorado home and headed west—by foot—to become the first woman to walk around the world. She walked across four continents, twenty-two countries, and over 14-thousand miles.
Over her five years of walking and living one step out of her comfort zone every day, she developed a set of skills in goal setting, creating a clear vision, problem solving, adapting to culture, and team building. When she wrote her book, 3mph: The Adventures of One Woman’s Walk Around the World about walking around the world and got ripped off in the publishing world. That launched her into taking those newly developed skills to start a new model in publishing, one that helps protect authors. And My Word Publishing was born.
My Word Publishing is a publishing model that interrupted the established publishing world by helping authors professionally self-publish their books while maintaining 100% of all their rights, royalties, and final decision making. My Word Publishing has now grown into a publishing library of over 900 books, 500 national awards, four publishing consultants, 35 editors, and representing authors from 16 countries. “I’m most proud of the community we’ve built. Our authors stay in touch with us, and most of all, each other. Through our dedicated Facebook group our authors learn from each other, support each other, work together, and share tools and ideas, even events! I wish I could say we did that by design, but it was an organic movement.”
Welcome aboard this new publishing model, and welcome to a new era in self-publishing.
