Answer the Call to Your Higher Self

Do you feel a deep calling to have a lasting impact on this world?

Come be a part of the next collection of life-altering messages that create legacies, share ancient and ancestral wisdom, open minds, and inspire the future... with stories that change the world!

Ritz Books collaborations are curated to speak out on subjects that society has been known to shroud in silence, with life-altering messages that celebrate individual differences, who we are at the core, and offers glimpses into our shared humanity.

Collaboration books bring together various voices, visions, and values to shed light on a single shared subject.

Each author and artist participating in the book project receives structured support throughout the process. Additionally, each participant retains all rights to their content.

Please don’t underestimate the power of sharing your message with the world.

Never would I have imagined when by saying yes to writing my second book, that the preview article would be picked up by a famous magazine and 500,000 copies would be printed.

Never could I imagine how over the next decade, I’d get to see my  positioning and marketing support more than one client in getting international distribution, allowing them to help billions of people around the world heal.

If you've ever wanted to tell your story, or write a book, now is the time to get started!

A Note From Steph:

I have a deep passion for shaping ideas into a journey of understanding. I've been told one of my greatest strengths is turning what you're saying into what you meant to say so your words can transform your community.

My deep curiosity allows me to insightfully interpret who you are so you can share with the world why you are indispensable to your tribe. It's why I help others ground ideas within stories. Story creates an intimate conversation between the author and reader. It's my honor to help you translate the pivotal moments of your journey into tangible solutions for your audience.

Remember, you are the primary resource of your chapter - this is the place to share your stories, experiences, ideas, and knowledge with the world. These collaborations are designed to honor and respect each other's beliefs, differences, and similarities. On rare occasion, you may be asked to rewrite a submission.
