Meet the Authors

We work with authors and publishers from all parts of the country, and enjoy their works immensely. We take pride in helping them successfully navigate the ever-changing landscape of publishing and book marketing.


Recent milestones include author interviews on Jenny McCarthys radio show; an International Book Award finalist, articles and reviews placed in USA Today, The Atlantic, Well Being Journal, Alternative Medicine, Open to Hope, Nation of Change, Alternet, and Huffington Post, plus many prestigious book awards. Some of our authors are winners and finalists in the following competitions: Bookvana Awards; New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards; National Indie Excellence Awards; Beverly Hills Book Awards; USA Best Book Awards; Readers’ Views Literary Awards; Next Generation Indie Book Awards; Southwest Book Design & Production Awards; Foreword Reviews Indiefab Book of the Year Awards; Indie Spiritual Book Awards, Paranormal Book Awards, Living Now Book Awards, Nautilus Silver Award, Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Florida Authors & Publishers Association Presidents Award, and the Illumination Awards. PenPower is extremely proud of all of our authors' achievements and continued success.
