Giving Voice to the Stories that



Why Should You Consider Publishing With
The Empowered Press?



The Empowered Press gives VOICE to the stories that matter. We support our writers on their journey to becoming successful, published authors. Our authors keep their creative freedom while working in a collaborative community of writing & publishing professionals.

Our hybrid model of publishing is unique in that we are at the intersection of traditional and self-publishing. We are an alternate way for authors to publish their important stories that in today's traditional publishing landscape are routinely rejected. 


We are author subsidized--but that's where the similarity to self-publishing ends. The Empowered Press is a true collaboration, a meeting of minds, between author and publisher. Similar to traditional publishing, we fully vet our authors (a very strict vetting process), they qualify for traditional reviews, and we offer both online and traditional distribution, as well as an in-house sales and marketing team. 

We are also available to Ghostwrite!

Most importantly, TEP authors earn more royalties than traditionally published authors. Authors invest in a publishing package and keep up to 75% net of their royalties. 


Our authors seek to disrupt the norm. We embrace writers from diverse backgrounds and are committed to breaking the silence. Our mission at The Empowered Press is to EMBOLDEN writers to find and speak their truth.

Through shared stories, written by authors like you, we aim to bridge the gap between cultures resulting in an environment of unity and respect where the underserved and misunderstood are empowered.

Books released by a hybrid publisher should be on par with traditionally published books in terms of adherence to industry standards, which are detailed in IBPA’s Industry Standards Checklist for a Professionally Published Book

Nonfiction Anthology

A heartfelt collection of nonfiction poetry, short stories, and essays written by women of all ages and races who are breaking the silence and disrupting the norm.

AVAILABLE Winter 2023!


Kelsi Jo and Alex Kincaid married right after college; they raised four daughters and built a life that, from a distance, looked picture-perfect. For thirty years, it seemed nothing could shake them. Until a life-altering diagnosis changed it all. In the turbulent aftermath, Kelsi begins to question everything about her life, her marriage, and her choices. Everything she’d ever known dissolved as quickly as her husband’s ashes.


As Kelsi’s identity begins to unfold, she shocks family and friends as she lets go of the woman she once was and steps into the woman she's meant to be. 

AVAILABLE Summer 2023!
