Publishing Company

It came about as a project to help grieving friends heal after a community member was killed in a car accident. The group of friends wrote a multi author book called Happy Thoughts Playbook to help those dealing with loss. The Founder and CEO of AYW, Kyra Schaefer, saw an opportunity to bring affordable authorship to those who wanted to bring their message to the world but didn't know how.  Now with over 28 Best Selling Books, AYW has helped to make dreams come true. Also, with every collaborative book, AYW donates thousands of dollars to grassroots charities in an effort to create change not just with hope-filled books but with organizations whose sole purpose is to help those in need.  We help authors succeed!
