New York City / Bloomington, Ind. (Vocus/PRWEB) April 18, 2011
Guideposts announced Monday the launch of Inspiring Voices, an independent publishing service. In partnership with Author Solutions, the world leader in indie book publishing, Guideposts is now able to offer the opportunity for a wider range of potential authors to reach their audiences.
Inspiring Voices provides a platform for authors to share stories that may require the long-form format of a book to be told completely and to have the most impact upon readers. At its core, the new publishing service supports Guideposts’ central mission which is to serve as an inspirational ally to consumers by providing them with wholesome faith-affirming storytelling and entertainment to change their lives in lasting ways.
“Inspiring Voices really extends the mission and brand values of Guideposts by creating a new opportunity for strong story-telling. Whether fiction or non-fiction, Inspiring Voices can give any author a range of ways to share their stories with their friends, colleagues, family or the general public,” said Richard Hopple, Guideposts president and CEO.
Authors who publish with Inspiring Voices benefit from the speed-to-market advantages and content control of indie book publishing, while having access to exclusive Guideposts marketing services. For example, select titles will be promoted and sold through a special collection on the Guideposts.org website.
“The partnership between Guideposts and Author Solutions, both leaders in their spaces, will benefit authors tremendously by providing an easily accessible platform for them to share their personal and inspirational stories,” said Kevin Weiss, ASI president and CEO, “We share Guideposts philosophy that sharing these stories is a very powerful way to inspire, heal and affirm one's beliefs and faith; and we’re pleased we can contribute to this mission.”
