Working with Kyra and Todd is fantastic. Their energy, enthusiasm, and always encouraging and steady attitude help you believe in yourself and overcome the tough challenges you face when trying to write, especially as a first-time author! If it weren’t for them, I would not have even believed it was possible to write in a book. I want to say thank you for all your support, love, and ongoing encouragement throughout the process! If you write a book on your own or as a collaboration, you can be assured you will get the help and support you need to feel special throughout the process! 


Heather Driscoll

My experience with writing my chapter in Own Your Awesome collaboration book was nothing but easy and rewarding! I have been talking about becoming an author for decades. They helped me launch into this amazing feeling of FINALLY becoming a published Author. From start to finish, they help you, are kind, and won't let you fail! If you want to become a published Author, then you need to work with As You Wish Publishing! I have 3 more books in my pipeline, and I will be working with them again very soon! 


Janet Zavala

As a writer looking for opportunities to publish my work, I couldn’t have found a more perfect opportunity than the OYA collaboration book by As You Wish Publishing. The experience was nothing less than transformative. I felt supported yet gently pushed past my comfort zone. The As You Wish Publishing team knows what they’re doing and at the same time handles your work with loving care. I look forward to future collaborations.


Pamela Duncan

This was my first publishing experience, and As You Wish Publishing made it almost effortless. Their instructions were very clear and all I had to do was write. They did all the rest. I am grateful to have found a publisher who is knowledgeable and experienced.  Becoming a best-selling author on Amazon had only been a dream, As You Wish made it a reality! 

Here’s what some of our bestselling published authors have to share. . .


About Us

Todd & Kyra Schaefer

My friend passed away, and I wanted to honor her memory.

I was devastated when my friend died tragically. I knew she had more to say in this life. She loved writing and collaborating, so I got our friends together, and we created a collaboration book about loss, love, self-healing and joy. It became a bestseller on day one! We were over the moon.


I found more people like me who just wanted to write but didn't know how to begin and certainly didn't know how to be in a real honest-to-heaven book! Once I learned how to publish books, I kept bringing people together to collaborate. 

We write, we dream, we laugh, we get seen, we tell our stories, and it's been a miracle. We want to share that miracle with you!

Who Are You?


  • You are BOLD, you matter and so does your story. 

  • You may not fit into the paradigms that were set up for you to follow. 

  • You may have seen a wrong being done and weren't willing to sit by and let it happen. 

  • You may have defended some and held the hands of others when no one else would. 

  • Your stories open the soul.

  • You care more deeply than most about things that only matter to a few, but those few matter more than anyone realizes. 

  • There is honor and courage in you that has a cascading effect but you may be the only one who knows it. 

  • You stay strong in the face of so much and you allow truth to be your guiding light because you feel it more deeply than others. 

  • You sense the discomfort in others and desire to offer care. 

  • You are the unsung heroes of the world holding up your energetic thread with the intention that love will be felt by all. 

  • Your story will echo their life and bring in a sense of hope. That they too can Be BOLD!

If you are ready for the confidence, excitement, and pure joy that expressing yourself in the world provides, connect with them today!


David Ebel

To those that are interested in taking a step of faith into their creativeness and ability to express what dwells inside them, I highly recommend this opportunity to allow your inner author to be exposed. The guidance Kyra gave me was personable and extremely helpful as I had dreamed of writing but never felt safe to express myself this way. Thank you Kyra and to all the other authors that helped me in this journey!


Casey Librizzi

Being a part of Own Your Awesome was truly exhilarating.  I am someone who has never written anything on that large of a platform. I never thought that my words would be read by so many. The process was organized and I felt supported every step of the way. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity.  I hope to be a part of the next one!
