Last year I got the All Access Pass and it was worth every cent – so grateful to have the time and space to learn from all the speakers in my own time.

Lois S.

I signed up for the All Access Pass because I just cannot get enough from these wonderful ladies! Since starting the Women in Publishing Summit, I have been so inspired and have begun to blog and write again.

Peggy C.

I owned a successful Digital Marketing Company for 10 years ( focused on travel and tourism) and ran a Digital Marketing Conference for 10 years. The Women in Publishing Summit reminded me how many new tools have come on the market and provided up to date tips and takeaways for self publishing authors like myself. I have been very impressed! Thank God I bought the all-access pass, what a bargain! 


I bought the all-access pass because I knew I wouldn't be able to participate during what was a hectic week for me. I just listened to Alexa's interview with Cindy Tyler and was Blown. A. Way. I didn't know such a company existed. Glory be. Can't wait to watch more.

Laura M. H.

There's something for everyone in Women in Publishing Summit, regardless of whether you are thinking of writing a book, in the process of writing one, or exploring publishing options.  Alexa and her team work tirelessly to help every participant achieve their goals. Before I joined the Summit, I was feeling overwhelmed. Had I not enrolled in the Summit, I would still be floundering. Thanks to Alexa and her staff, my debut novel is set for a fall launch! 

Carol P.

Sounds Awesome, Right?! It is!

And all of these resources could be added to your personal success library. You could get access to all of this amazing content for a lifetime for JUST $67!
