Positive Ripples

Personal Growth In A Pandemic


Ready to BE a Positive Ripple?

P.A.V.E. Press is putting together a new collaborative book to inspire hope, faith, & positive growth!  No previous writing experience required! Open to all ages!  I believe goodness can be found in any experience, and that even when we can't clearly see it, in the end, it always prevails. Share any new insight  you've found in this experience, however big or small, so that together we can foster the trust in our growth -as a whole- through it all.  

Check out the Video Below!

This opportunity is for you if:

  • You've always wanted to be published but didn't know how

  • You have a desire to spread light in the world

  • You believe that goodness is available even in the midst of tragedy

  • You've learned something new through the current pandemic and the changes it has imposed on your life

  • You have kids who have learned something new about themselves or their world since all of this started

  • You are willing to share with friends and ask a small launch team to support you
