Posted October 11, 2014 by

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Press Release) October 11, 2014

San Diego, CA, Oct. 10, 2014 – Motivational Press has announced its acceptance of PW Press Books, as a nonfiction trade imprint publishing across categories including motivation, health & wellness, business, and leadership. The imprint’s editors develop new authors and branded series and bring established authors to new audiences.

PW Press Books publishes in all electronic, audio, and printed formats. As audience awareness builds, authors are apprised of relevant marketplace opportunities from which they are well positioned to profit by getting their Pearls of Wisdom (PW) out to the world.

“Entrepreneurial and small business authors find themselves having to choose between self-publishing and conventional publishing companies, neither of which is truly satisfactory,” said editorial director Chiwah Slater. “On the one hand, if they land a conventional publisher they are routinely told that their book won’t appear for at least a year and a half, and many authors resent the low level of control they retain over the finished product.

“On the other hand, few self-published authors manage to generate the marketing juice required to make a dent in the marketplace. Publishing a book is just the first step; it has to be accompanied by savvy marketing and distribution to make an impact.

“PW Press Books and Motivational Press provide the ultimate solution: a hybrid between self-publishing and conventional book publishing. Our authors reap the benefits of Motivational Press’s impressive book marketing track record, while still retaining control over content, title, cover choice, and pricing—advantages typically available only via self-publishing – and all rights, foreign and domestic. It’s an unbeatable combination.”

Editorial decisions are driven by a commitment to providing readers practical content of the highest quality. Slater brings 30 years’ experience as an editor, reviewer and publisher in a wide range of markets.

Slater also heads up three Internet sites devoted to providing editorial and book marketing support to new and established authors:,, and
