The Author’s Journey was founded by award-winning sales, marketer, and activist Elona Washington, who understands firsthand the challenges of sharing marginalized stories. After self-publishing her memoir, she was catapulted into the public eye as a #metoo activist, appearing in USA TODAY, Canadian Broadcasting Network, and other major outlets.
An activist at heart, Elizabeth Leiba has empowered over 200,000 followers on LinkedIn as an unapologetic voice for equity. Her debut book, I'm Not Yelling, made headlines in a New York Times article, on CNN, and across several Ivy League campuses. Her commitment is unwavering as she's sold more than 12k copies of her book in less than one year.
What began as a client relationship between Elona and Elizabeth organically blossomed into a partnership. They connected over their love of books and their passion for advancing social justice. Together, they provide both compassion and expertise guiding authors through customized writing, publishing, and targeted marketing services.
