Tales2Inspire Now Accepting New Submissions From Authors For Publication In 2015

'Tales2Inspire' is a collection of inspirational, motivational and uplifting stories submitted by authors from across the globe. Developed by Lois W. Stern, 'Tales2Inspire' gives authors an opportunity to reach a worldwide audience and establish themselves as authors of talent

Lois W. Stern, developer of each of the 'Tales2Inspire' collections, has announced that new submissions by authors are now being accepted for the 2015 editions of the book. 'Tales2Inspire' is a collection of anthologies of varied themes, with each book containing a compilation of stories filled with inspiring messages, compiled by Stern.

For a change of pace, the next 'Tales2Inspire' book will be a collection of humorous, non-fiction stories, but other themes, all listed on the Tales2Inspire website, are also being accepted at this time. Inspiring stories can be found everywhere. ‘Tales2Inspire' presents the best of these types of stories in a series of compilations.Inspiring and motivational stories submitted are chosen by a peer group of authors to determine eligibility for publication and awards. There are no fees to submit stories and winning authors receive many no-charge, platform building opportunities.

“It is no secret that many talented writers and seasoned authors alike remain undiscovered," Stern stated. Tales2Inspire™ provides the best-of-the-best with an opportunity to get one compelling story published, and start them on the road to several strong branding and platform building opportunities. I don’t like using the work ‘unique’ but Tales2Inspire is truly unlike any other writer’s contest. First, there is no submission fee. Then, even after the awards are announced, I continue to work with the author of a ‘tale’ which shows exceptional promise. I do not charge for any of these services because I am committed to the ideal of 'Authors Helping Authors'. Of course there is something in it for me too as I get first rights to publication of each winning ‘tale’."

The benefits of being a contributing author to 'Tales2Inspire' include, but are not limited to:

* Author's story published in a respected book collection

* Author’s headshot photo and mini-biography published inside the book

* Author’s full color photo and name on the back cover of the book

After twenty years as an active educator, Lois W. Stern continued to pursue her love for writing, and soon became co-editor of the then popular Long Island web-zine, LI EYE. As she created and authored the column ‘Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives’, she solidified her special niche as an investigative journalist. She has put those same talents to work in creating the ‘Tales2Inspire ’“Authors Helping Authors” project/contest and working to encourage and nurture the skills of each of her participating authors. Since she initiated this project in 2012, Lois has published four Tales2Inspire books: The Emerald Collection (Beyond Coincidence’ stories), The Topaz Collection  (Stories of ‘Awakenings & Aha Moments’) The Sapphire Collection (Stories that ‘Echo in the Mind’). and the Ruby Collection (‘Gifts of Compassion’ Stories). Lois’ goal is to continue to publish more books of inspirational stories to add to this series of short gift books, with the name of each author credited for their story.
