Do you remember that quick girls trip? That epic pilgrimage? The time you set off on your own to journey through the wilderness?  That hilarious family adventure? The time you found love a world away? When you started over in a new and foreign city, town, or village?

 
  • You wondered if you could do this. 
  • You wondered if it was really worth the time, effort, and money for such a short time away from home.
  • You wondered what the hell you were thinking when you got on that plane and it was happening.
  • You found yourself checking for your ID, tickets, passport, and oddly your house keys so often!
  • You found yourself unsure in a foreign country and unable to communicate properly 
  • You wondered if the elements or terrain would be too much for you handle

 

And none of it stopped you. You chose to get on that plane. You chose to pack your bags and just go. You chose yourself and the adventure of a lifetime.

You traveled the world and can look back on your journey now with immense satisfaction, love, and reflection.

 

Too many women question the journey
 
Too many women put it off until it is too late (spoiler - it is never too late) 
 
Too many women are afraid to adventure.
 
Too many women lack the belief in their own strength and independence!

 

They stay comfortable, only dreaming of the places they could see or the people they could meet. We need more women 

 

Who live adventureously.
Who live courageously.
Who trust in themselves fully.
Who take the leap, and trust in the journey.
 

YOUR STORY is what she needs to show her it's all possible for her, too.

Meet Your Lead author, K.A. Henderson!

K.A. Henderson is the wife of a Scottish expat and a mother of two. Born and raised in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, she is incredibly proud of where she came from.

        As a work from home mum with a husband who works out of town, her life is chaotic. It generally includes juggling school runs, baby naps, meal prep, endless housekeeping, a dash of writing and above all else, self care. Just call her the Chaos Coordinator! 

She thought she would remain in her hometown of Kelowna all her life, as most of her family has, until she met her husband. She has since lived in Alberta, as well as Southwest Scotland. She gave birth to their daughter while in Scotland, before returning with her husband to the Okanagan. 4 years later, she gave birth to their son. They still live in the Okanagan today, although “hame” is always on their minds.

        She is well traveled, kind and enthusiastic. She loves passionately, laughs often (mostly at herself), and worries relentlessly. Being a Libra, she has an innate desire to seek fairness and justice. This can be more trouble than it is worth to some, but to her, it is impulsive. She has a strong belief that everything happens for a reason, and believes in all things spiritual and supernatural. Trusting life has very real meaning to her. She is thrilled to share her experiences and her imagination with the world. This is only the beginning.

Becoming an author in She Travels The World is YOUR chance to show every woman what’s possible. 

 

It’s your opportunity to show that there is hope. That the journey is worth it, every step of the way.

Author Testimonial

When I first considered writing with GCW Publishing, I was terrified to write my story. I felt like it had no value to anyone, and that I would just be judged for my past. When I finally hit submit, I felt like barfing.

I had no idea that my story would impact hundreds. Literally hundreds of people thanked me. They told me they finally felt understood, that it was like I was writing their story. Those comments opened up a new world for me. I let go of all my old insecurities about sharing and being vulnerable and now I can’t even remember what it felt like to be scared of my own story.

Author Testimony

Two years ago I was presented with the opportunity to contribute to the book “The Great Canadian Woman, She is Strong and Free” as a collaborative author, sharing my story of survival and  healing after the murder of my 20 year old son. I suspected that sharing my experience may be of value to another grieving mother but I hadn’t considered how incredibly cathartic and healing it would be for ME! As I made my way through complex thoughts, feelings and emotions, I could see meaningful sentences and paragraphs start to form and in no time “my” chapter was born.   It’s like the paper was a sacred “dumping” place for my pain and as peace prevailed it became clear to me how far I had come in my healing. An incredible experience! I would strongly recommend anyone who is hearing “the whisper” to share their story, to please be brave and step forward. Your words will be medicine for someone else, but also know the  writing process is extremely cathartic and healing for your own soul. Your story matters. Your words matter. Your experience and perspective matters! Give yourself and others the gift of becoming a published author with The GCW Publishing House!

Why Collaborate In a Volume With Other Women?

Because a community of women speaking their truths is a true force to be reckoned with. PLUS...

  • You can dip your toes in the pool of authorship (4k words), rather than diving all the way into a traditional book… approx. 90k words (WHOA!)
  • Collaboration = reduced publishing and marketing costs. AKA saving approximately 75%.... not to mention the headaches of figuring it out alone.
  • Your chapter is in good company amongst the other authors.
  • You can rally together to support and celebrate one another as the writing process finishes and the marketing begins!
  • And um, yea, again… because a book full of kick-ass women sharing their stories of overcoming the hardest, darkest, most isolating moments of their journeys is POWERFUL.
