Publish Your Book – Just Do It

You are a woman with a story to tell, wisdom to contribute, experience that will not just smooth the path for others, but change their lives for the better. You want to share your story, but you don’t know how.

Where do you begin when you are ready to publish your book?








Bold Story Press

A Publishing Company for Women








At Bold Story Press, we publish writing by, for, and about women.

Wherever you are in the process, whether you are just beginning to explore a book idea, or already have the final manuscript but have no idea of how to turn it into a book, we can help you.

We know how challenging it can be, the process of beginning with that blank page and all of the necessary interim steps to get you to the day you can hold your published book in your hand. From classes on researching ideas and writing, to producing your book, to marketing and selling, we will teach you. We will partner with you to publish your book.

You can do this.

We’ll be there with you every step of the way.

We offer a menu of services, from introductory classes and coaching to customized design, editing, and marketing services. No matter where you are in the process, we can help.

“The webinar was superb – it was very well organized and contained exactly the overview of the publishing world I needed.”

Write and Publish Your Book

Unlike the bulk of self-publishing programs available today, that primarily teach you how to market to specific outlets, but not how to write the quality book that will earn well-earned praise, this foundation course focuses on how to write a quality book. The eight-week, live, learning experience will teach you the common classic principles that successful authors have used for 100 years.

This inaugural class has a limited number of seats and will be taught by Bold Story Press Founder and CEO, Emily Barrosse, former Vice President, Editor in Chief at McGraw-Hill.

*Scholarship assistance available

Publishing Program

We will offer a full suite of publishing services that will allow you to create a beautiful print and ebook version of your manuscript.

Full-Service Publishing

Bold Story Press will publish a select number of fiction and non-fiction titles each year as part of our full-service publishing program. If you have a manuscript you believe would qualify for this program, please contact Emily.


“Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.” Barbara Kingsolver

When you take a class with us or publish your book with Bold Story Press, we donate to Camfed

No force changes the world more than a girl with a book. That’s how CAMFED, the grand prize winner of the 2020 Holiday Impact Prize, transforms the lives of young women and of the communities around them. CAMFED empowers girls and young women, and they in turn reshape their countries. Girls’ education may be the highest-return investment available in the world today.” – Nicholas Kristof, New York Times Op-Ed Columnist
