Women’s book publisher seeks empowering stories from female entrepreneurs

Musician, Reiki Master and language professional turned author Silke Harvey is looking for successful female entrepreneurs to share their stories in her debut multi-author book STRONG AND FREE – Stories of women who are living their dream after breaking up with society’s expectations.

When researching publishing options for her first self-penned book, Harvey found a male-dominated industry full of outdated, pricey and hard-to-get deals, so she decided to shake things up. She joined the roster of female publishing houses that are emerging under the wing of AMA Publishing by international bestselling author Adriana Monique Alvarez and started Inner Hippie Books – a publishing house run by women for women.

“Inner Hippie Books came from a deep passion to give inspiring women a platform to tell their powerful stories to the world. The lack of women in the publishing industry is shocking. When researching for my own book, I found very few publishing houses owned by women. Curious to find out more, I soon learned that women were banned from owning publishing houses until around the 19th century. Throughout history, there have been powerful female storytellers, but with few exceptions, their work was destroyed and forgotten. Yet amongst our ancient ancestors, women were the storytellers of their tribes. Despite the huge progress made over the last century, women still carry the ancestral scar of atrocities such as the Burning Times and are still underrepresented in many sectors of today’s society. I am deeply passionate about giving women back their voice, especially in light of recent worrying trends like the Incel movement and happenings in the Middle East.”
–Silke Harvey, Inner Hippie Books

Fascinated by the concept of multi-author books – where a group of women contribute one chapter each to a book and the publisher takes care of all the back-office work – Harvey decided to launch her own title. 

She explained: “Authors get their story published at the fraction of the time, effort and cost of a full book, yet reap the same benefits of being a bestselling author. They get the opportunity to be involved in a title that opens doors in business and instantly elevates the author to expert status. And, as an additional bonus, networking with a large group of authors creates huge synergies.”

Inner Hippie Books wants to hear from women who have managed to overcome and break free from the expectations that society has placed on them and are now living a life that is aligned with their passions and true purpose. Harvey encourages these women to come forward and tell their stories to inspire others who may be infinitely close to breaking free themselves, to take this courageous step.

“Do you dream of being a bestselling author? Do you have a powerful story that will inspire and delight others? Then I want to hear from you,” she added.

The release date for STRONG AND FREE is planned for 1 November 2021. The book will be available worldwide through Amazon and Audible.
