Colorado Business Woman of the Year

Meet Polly Letofsky

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.

INTERRUPTING THE OLD PUBLISHING MODEL

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.

How is My Word Publishing different than other self publishing companies?

We’re your resource to make it happen!

At My Word Publishing we can guide you from your book idea through publication and marketing, or you can cherry pick the services that you want. And whichever services you choose, you always make the final decisions, you keep the profits, and you keep all distribution and copyrights. In other words, at My Word it’s your book.

As a first time author with tons of experience in my field but no experiencing with publishing, I cannot say enough about the support and expertise of the My Word Publishing team. Amanda Miller, our rep from My Word walked with us every step of the way even after the book was published. Not only did she provide excellent information and guidance but she connected us with a skilled and responsive group of professionals who helped us with editing, proofreading and design. From concept to cover design to publishing on Amazon and other platforms, My Word Publishing helped us make for a successful book--sales are rolling in and the book is making the difference I want it to make in the world. And they continue to help us we navigate foreign book rights, book launch events and celebrity endorsements. Every question we had, they had a thoughtful and useful answer. If they didn't have the answer they knew who we could talk to. Thanks My World Publishing team!

My Word Publishing delivered all they promised and beyond that. Professional and very friendly at the same time, highly competent, communicative, helpful and honest. I would recommend them to everybody, who want to publish a book. I am grateful to all of them, especially to Polly Letofsky.

When I engaged Polly at My Word Publishing to help me take my friend's book across the finish line, I was confident that she would help me toe the professional mark, and give me honest feedback without tiptoeing around sensitivities. (Trust me, there were plenty of those, as this mission was given to me as a dying commandment.) I had no idea, however, just how instrumental Polly would be in helping me to navigate the unexpected speed bumps and empowering me to make decisions that would have been overwhelming, if faced on my own. She patiently walked me through the processes and the expectations (realistic and otherwise), and didn't snarl at me too much when I expressed anxiety over something she had previously prepared me for. I could go on, but then, as Polly would say, nobody would read it. Suffice it to say, Polly and My Word Publishing left their footprints in my heart and across the world of human rights activists who are now clamoring to buy the book. In Gratitude, Amy

Bryan @ My Word Publishing is amazing and I would highly recommend him. Not only were the results of the campaign he ran for me beyond my expectations, he took the time to explain every step and educate me on how I could run something similar in the future.

Bryan is very knowledgeable in the areas in which we needed support, particularly regarding Amazon set up and KDP ranking. He shared details and took the reins to help us accomplish our goals. We would definitely recommend him and will use him again!

I recently published my first novel, Private Cummings. I spent months researching the best way to bring the book to fruition after I completed the manuscript, and I found the process daunting. That is, until I saw a video of Polly talking about My Word Publishing. I wrote to schedule a call, and Polly wrote me right back to schedule. I had a feeling I'd like her from her video, but after spending just ten minutes with her on our initial call, I was hooked. I signed with My Word and never looked back. And I'm so glad I did. Polly and her team made the process easy and fun. She immediately gained my trust and has continued to come through for me. I look forward to many more projects with Polly and her team.

Polly is amazing! She came highly recommended by multiple people when I was at the beginning process of self-publishing. She took the time to explain the details of the process with no pressure to sign anything if I wasn't happy with what she was presenting. Her network of talented and experienced editors and designers makes My Word Publishing a one-stop-shop for all your publishing needs! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Polly and My Word Publishing!

Bryan Canter was a huge asset in my self-publishing project, the novel "Deception Downeast". As a first-time novelist, I needed a combination expert guide and mentor. I could not ask for more from Bryan who delivered facts, advice and insights far beyond the "contractual" necessity. If you are self-publishing, do yourself a favor and get in touch with Mr. Canter.

"The entire process of publishing my book was a pleasant and fulfilling experience. Polly and Amanda were incredibly patient and supportive, guiding me through each production, publishing, distribution, and marketing stage. Working with the book designer was also a great experience, as I could participate in the design. Amanda did an excellent job coordinating the work between the editing and design teams, and the process couldn't have gone any smoother."
