DETROIT, Mich.- The co-founders of A Million Women Strong have announced the creation of a new company – Independent Xpression – created to provide quality publishing services to writers and give a voice to the stories of women. Independent Xpression is a subsidiary company of Infinite Xpression – an established publishing company.

“There are a plethora of self publishing opportunities in the publishing arena. An author should research those opportunities and make wise choices. Every self publishing opportunity is not beneficial to an author. Independent Xpression gives the author a fighting chance at being successful in fulfilling their dream,” says AMWS co-founder, publisher and author, Tonya Shirelle.

Independent Xpression will serve as the catalyst for your editorial, production, marketing and distribution capabilities to complete your book project. Although recognizing that each project will have its own needs, the services Independent Xpression provides are designed to meet the general needs in order to get your book to print.

“Every woman is powerful in her own way, but together, a million women can overcome nearly any obstacle,” said Nikki Woods, organization co-founder, author and publisher. “And every woman has a unique voice with a story to tell. The marriage between AMWS and Independent Xpression is the perfect way to showcase the strength and inspiration of women.”

By providing the support and infrastructure necessary to accomplish the goal of getting your book to print, Independent Xpression helps aspiring authors fulfill their dream of being published with the assistance of a proven publisher.

The Original Video Vixen?!?!?!?!?!

I was just talking about this YESTERDAY! I did an interview with a magazine recently and this is one of the questions that was asked.

Mike TRIBE!: It's not an easy thing being in the media is it?

Nikki Woods: No, it's not but I know it's what God has called me to do.

Nikki Woods: Young girls need to see women who really care about them and want the best for them.

Nikki Woods: Women who are strong and beautiful and don't need to shake their butt to get ahead in life.

So it was more than a little interesting that I should get an email today containing this documentary about a woman named Sara Bartman. The content speaks for itself but I have to say as I sat and watched it - I started crying. It hurts to see women being exploited so visciously centuries ago but it hurts moreso today because a lot of it is by choice. Sure we can get political and say that some make the choice because they feel they have no choice but when are we (and I'm talking to the Ladies) going to stand up and reclaim our power. It's the main reason why Tonya and I started the organization A Million Women Strong. We want to empower women to do what they really want in life - not what they feel they have to just to survive. We are in the trenches. We are ready and willing to do what it takes to make a difference. Are u?
