Writing a book should not be a perilous or expensive process – while publishing with a big house brings many challenges, self-publishing can also be plenty intimidating, and if you’re not careful, expensive. Enter Jenn T. Grace and Publish Your Purpose Press. I am a long-time colleague and friend of Jenn’s and often say, “I trust this woman with my life.” She assisted me every step of the way with getting my first book out, called “Inclusion”, and made what could have been an overwhelming process simple, guiding me through the right questions to ask and partnering with me patiently, every step of the way. I have recommended many, many potential authors to her because of the great care she takes, and how accessible she makes the whole publishing process. If you are at all considering a book in your future, you owe it to yourself to investigate Jenn’s offerings!—Jennifer Brown



Jenn T. Grace and the team at Publish Your Purpose Press have been instrumental in helping me toaccomplish my dream of becoming published author to fruition! Jenn’s ability to take a seemingly overwhelming process and breaking it down to tangible actionable milestones enabled me to bring thought to reality and an identity to what once was hidden in plain sight in Identity Impact: When Society’s Expectations Collide With the Authentic Self. Thank you, Jenn for adding published author and speaker to my list of lifetime achievements and successes that enables me to align all of the elements in my experience into a simple and clear book that validates the sense of self and helps others understand the impact they make! Thank you for making an IMPACT!—Dina Proto



If you feel the burning desire to become an author and share your message to the world, it takes a lot to make that happen. You’ll need resources and experts to help you get there. You’ll need direction and input and someone you can trust. You’ll need things you don’t even know you need if you are a first time author!! If this sounds like you, I highly recommend connecting with Jenn T. Grace and her team at Publish Your Purpose Press. As a first time author, I ran the gamut of roadblocks and questions and not knowing where to turn, and by the wonders of the Universe, I found Jenn! Her wisdom, tenacity and experience was exactly what I needed to make my dream a reality. My expectations run high and she delivers. Stop wasting time and make your book come alive! Jenn will work with you throughout every step of your journey… and what a blast you will have!—Nancy West



Working with Jenn T. Grace to publish my book was a phenomenal experience. I have been wanting to write a book for years. Jenn helped my to streamline my topic, focus on a timeline, and provided guidance in writing a well thought out piece. She created a framework for me to combine all my years of thought leadership in the field of race psychology and my real life experiences, into one easy-to-read book. Urban Trauma: A Legacy of Racism, was my masterpiece… Jenn made that possible. She can do to the same for you! Connect with Jenn today.—Dr. Maysa Akbar



I set out to write a book and in spite of good intentions, I didn’t get very far. Then I met Jenn and signed up for her 3-month course called the Publish Your Purpose Academy. Jenn broke down the process, week by week into manageable and understandable tasks. It was also a great help to learn from other struggling authors like me. After I completed the class I figured I was all set and continued on my own. Yet, I soon found myself floundering and I went back to Jenn and signed with her and her team. That was the best decision I’ve made. Suddenly I had weekly calls, accountability, and an energetic team to help. Within months I had my first book published! —Cathi Nelson



My experience working with Jenn and her team at Publish Your Purpose Press was nothing short of entirely positive. As a first time author, she made the complicated process of getting my book published feel a lot easier than I had expected. Her team were fantastic to work with, very well organized, and professional. She always delivered as promised and I found her to be reasonable when it came to any terms that needed to be negotiated. If you are seeking a publisher to get your book out to market, I would strongly recommend you connecting with Jenn. —Gregg Roberts



As an already decently accomplished writer, I wasn’t sure how much Publish Your Purpose would benefit me. How naive that was! I’ve never written a book, and this course takes you through everything––yes, everything!––needed to write a book. Everything from mindset tips to write regularly to how to find an editor to how to choose a title and cover to––hey!––how to get testimonials. I’ve still got a lot to do, but I’m confident that I have all the resources I need to finish my book and make an impact in the world with it. Could never do that on my own, that’s for damn sure. —Jared Karol



As a first-time author, it’s hard to overstate the impact of the Publish Your Purpose Academy process. From being close to completely overwhelmed and feeling a bit terrified, I now feel like we have a roadmap through the wilderness. The Academy is extremely well designed in terms of topics covered, sequence and structure. I love that there are worksheets, tools and videos to review on demand, supported by a cohort experience of questions and peer learning. —Sindri Anderson



We recently just completed Publish your Purpose Press’ 14 week Academy and what a difference it made! Jenn T. Grace not only has deep smarts, she exudes professionalism and compassion in every interaction she has with her clients. Jenn strikes the perfect balance between support and challenge, knowing just when to push you a bit further so you are stretching outside your comfort zone. The team at PYP is focused on ways to refine and elevate content, so your end product not only touches readers but transforms readers. As new authors, we cannot imagine a more productive, engaging, practical experience than PYP Academy – every author should be so lucky! —Pamela Hopkins



When I started the program, I was giddy at the thought that I would be guided through the trenches of the total publishing process by an entrepreneur (an expert who thinks differently, works harder, and has more fun while getting sh*t done:). It was clear from the start that Jenn and her team had created a platform that was thorough, actionable, and generous beyond compare. I have had the absolute privilege of getting to know Jenn and the aspiring authors in my group. I absolutely love the interaction and the learning each week. I very much appreciate that Jenn embraces each of us exactly where we are each week, so those of us on a slower roll feel supported AND like we’re not holding anyone else back. I also love that fact that she turns virtually every idea/suggestion (almost immediately) into a concrete addition to her amazing platform for the benefit of all participants. I know that I will be publishing a book with PYP Press within the year, and that there’s more to come re: collaborating with Jenn and her company. I’m so grateful and can’t wait for the deeper dive! —Melissa Kerr
