With the launch of this year's Hay House Insights Nonfiction Writing Contest, Balboa Press continues its commitment to give writers the keys to unlocking their potential as an author.
"It was very clear to me that publishing through Balboa was the answer, because I could have a book in my hand three months after handing the manuscript in," shares Nancy Levin, event director at Hay House and author of "Writing for My Life ... Reclaiming the Lost Pieces of Me" (published by Balboa Press).
"The truth of the matter is that if [your message] is honest and in you, and you have a desire to share your voice with the world-a desire to share your message-then you are doing a disservice to all of us by not sharing yourself."
