Carrie Severson is the CEO of The Unapologetic Voice House, an independent publishing agency. She has been in the storytelling space for more than 20 years. After being published by an independent publisher, she spent five years pitching literary agents in the hopes of being published traditionally. She desperately wanted that traditional publishing deal. After 100 rejections from literary agents, she launched the company that could help women just like her – unapologetic in their story and looking for support. Now, she has the opportunity to walk the journey of developmental editing, publishing, and mentoring aspiring female authors throughout the world. After spending two decades in the storytelling world, she knows how to get a great book out into the marketplace.
