The Power of a Story

Do you believe a story can change the world? 

I do. I always have. Stories have influenced my thinking, my heart, my view of the world since I was little. I so loved the transportation that came from a well told story that I named my cat Princess Scheherazade, after the heroine of Arabian Nights, when I was 11. Even as a young girl I admired the power and charm of a woman so able to wield words as to hold her captor captive.

I still believe words have power to charm, inform, captivate. Maybe that's why I'm so excited about being able to work on a project that uses words for good. CausePub, a new crowd publishing company, is using stories not only to engage the lives of people who read them but benefit people from the profits of the book. Brilliant!

Do you have a story to tell? I bet you do! At CausePub we're looking for stories of a time you rebelled against your couch, stepped out of your comfort zone and did something. It could be simple or extravagant. Whatever it is, we want to hear it.

Hop over to CausePub  and check the project out. If your story is chosen to be published in the book you will receive a portion of the proceeds from the book's sale. We've also partnered with Blood: Water Mission and they will receive 50% of the profit. If 15,000 books are sold it will provide 45,000 people in Africa with water for a year! That's a story worth telling!

Do you believe in the power of a story? Why not join us in telling stories and spreading the word!
