The PWR Press Story

After 20+ years of working with high-level individuals ranging from professional athletes and celebrities to CEOs and social media influencers — we saw a problem we couldn’t ignore.

Many high-profile people have a great story to tell — a story that could engage, inform, and inspire — yet they lack the right resources and credible partners to help them share it. 

The barriers to publishing — lack of industry know-how, discipline, time management, writer’s block, and most importantly, an unfair publishing system that doesn’t fairly compensate or support writers — we’re holding so many talented authors back from sharing their story.

PWR Press is here to change that. 

We’re a different type of publishing house. We EMPOWER writers by partnering with them, coaching them, and working with them side-by-side to write, market, promote, and sell their book. We give them everything they need to succeed.

And, we do it all in a way that is fun, fair, and ethical!

We help writers bring their book into this world while being fully supported personally, professionally, financially while enjoying every step of the process! 

Find out how we can help you make your dream of publishing your story a reality. 

The PWR Press Team

Carolynn Smith-Jones

Carolynn Smith-Jones truly understands talent management and representation. For over 20 years, she’s lived it both personally and professionally.

From being personally involved in the world of professional sports to managing her national public relations agency, Seven Marketing + PR, Carolynn knows what it takes to succeed on both the personal and professional side of a high- profile lifestyle.

Starting her career as an on-air radio personality for NFL Fox Sports, Carolynn covered NFL pre- season camps, sideline reporting and interviewing NFL players and coaches. Following the world of sports, Carolynn became a “Million Dollar Baby” in sales and marketing for Hilton Hotels Worldwide before finally turning her attention toward supporting high-profile clients
with Seven Marketing + PR.

Carolynn’s experience in sports and entertainment has taught her many things. The life comes with a lot of opportunities — and a lot of people trying to take advantage of you. And, that many high profile individuals lack having a strong team of experienced partners to support them and their dreams. That is why Carolynn launched PWR Press Publishing.

Tired of seeing individuals taken for granted and taken advantage of, Carolynn decided to expand her PR business into publishing — an industry notorious for over-promising and under- serving talent and thought leaders. Now, through PWR Press Publishing — a publishing house that provides fun, fair, and ethical book partnerships — she can put her big heart to work helping people bring their dreams of writing a book to life while helping them elevate and profit from the process!
