Are you ready

to become a

published author?

 

You're in the right place!

YGTMedia Company is a boutique, blended publishing house serving purpose-driven humans in the pursuit of "birthing their brain babies" aka their books.

We specialize in narrative nonfiction, personal growth and development books, resources (journals, planners, affirmation cards), as well as adult and children’s empowerment books.

We believe that words can change the world, and we intend to do so one book at a time.

We are a full-service hybrid publishing house, not a self-publishing agency or vanity press. We support our authors through a collaborative and educational approach, that is creatively guided by the author.

Tired of googling how to publish a book and get it distributed? Let us do the heavy lifting so you can focus on the writing.

Unlike traditional publishing, with the blended model, the author holds the copyright, intellectual property rights and creative control.

Ongoing Education + Resources

Every author in the YGT family has access to our signature mastermind program The Author Generator Society and our resource portal.
