Who We Are
All She Wrote Productions is a full-service boutique publishing house and story accelerator on a mission to amplify the voices of women, non-binary and underrepresented authors. As a hybrid publisher, we only take on authors we believe in who are looking for a true partner in the publishing process. In exchange for an upfront investment and a little elbow grease, we offer our authors a full publication package that rivals traditional publishing and gives them a greater voice in the decisions being made about how to get their book out and into the hands of their readers. We also offer our authors a much greater slice of the royalty pie because we believe in the world of publishing, authors come first.
Book publishing packages and a la carte services include everything from editorial, production, design, distribution, author branding consultation, and even marketing and promotions (something most publishers do not offer), as well as dedicated guidance on navigating the ever-changing book business specific to each authors we work with and each book we publish—there is no one size fits all approach here.
Interested in adapting your story for screen or radio? We do that too! In fact, screen adaptations are our total jam. Do you see your book on the big screen? Let’s chat!
Your Guide to the New World of Indie Publishing
All She Wrote Productions was born out of a need—to help underrepresented authors navigate the ever-changing world of publishing. It used to be there was traditional publishing and self-publishing, but the lines between the two are far more murky these days. No matter where you look, it’s starting to seem like everyone and their mother has a book out! So how is it possible that all these people are snagging the coveted few publishing deals?
The truth is, with all the changes the world of publishing has seen over the years, indie publishing is starting to resemble the Wild West. The only constant that remains is the inequity baked right into the dough of the traditional publishing recipe.
While women make up 59 percent of all writers and authors in the United States, and the publishing industry itself is predominately made up of cis women (to the tune of 74 percent, as of 2019) that same representation is not reflected in the reviewing of their work. In today’s publishing landscape, women and nonbinary authors, despite making up a growing share of the marketplace, are still less likely to get reviewed by major media, or snag a hefty advance, than their male counterparts—throw diversity into the mix, and the stats are even more dismal.
At All She Wrote, we aim to level the publication playing field for voices from all backgrounds—especially those typically excluded from the traditional publishing world—by giving a platform to authors most underrepresented in the traditional publishing ecosystem. By elevating diverse voices, we’ll create a stronger, more inclusive and ever-evolving landscape representative of the vast array of voices in our world today.
