WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
We are looking for tarot readers to share their wisdom in our Major Arcana Book. If you are familiar with the Rider-Waite system and you use it to read for others or yourself… then you are invited to join. You will be our expert on one card. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just started reading 3 months ago or if you’ve been doing it for 30 years, we want your voice.
How does this work?
After you sign up, you will pick a card. For three weeks we will walk you through the process of writing your chapter (2,000 words or less). You can expect outline suggestions from us, guidance, and write with a community of contributors. After the 3 weeks is over, we will begin the process of getting the book out into the world.
The Contributors Package:
A professional editor is on board for this book. When you turn in your 1000-2000 word chapter, we will send it to be grammatically edited and spell checked. We understand that your words are important to you, so we will send you a digital copy of your chapter to approve before it goes to print.
We will send you a free PDF copy of the book once it’s completed. You will be given the opportunity to purchase your books wholesale from us and to sell them to your community at a predetermined cost.
We’re going to give you the tools you need to market this project! You will receive a press release, memes, and even swipe copy!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is there an investment to contribute to this project?
While we would love to do this for free, the truth is that capital is needed in order to publish a book. We want to ensure that we put a quality book in the marketplace. That requires you to have some skin in the game and to make a monetary and energetic commitment.
Q: What does the investment get me?
As mentioned above, you will receive a pdf version of the book, a media package to help promote the book, a professional editor to edit your chapter and Contessa and Je Tuan as writing coaches during the 3 weeks.
Q: Will I receive royalties from sales of the book?
Trust me, you don’t want that headache. Booking and royalties are just too hard to keep track of, especially with this many contributors. However, you can purchase books at wholesale cost and sell the books on your own and keep all of the earnings.
Q: When is the deadline to sign-up?
Once all the spots are taken or the writing is set to begin, we will remove this page. If you’re reading this, then you still have time…so come on!
Q: When do I have to turn my chapter in by?
You will have to turn in your chapter by the time the 3 weeks are over. Trust us, you can do it!
Q: I'd like to write my chapter on something specific? Does it require your approval?
We have guidelines on how your chapter should be written. In this book, we’re walking people through how to interpret the card and apply it to their own reading practice. So if you’re stepping outside of those parameters… then yes it does require approval. We’re not looking to print fluff, we want to create something that will be valuable and a staple in people’s book collections.
Q: I'm not sure this opportunity is right for me. Do I have time to think about it?
If you’re not sure if this project is right for you, it probably isn’t. So it’s okay not to give in to FOMO.
