Bridgett McGowen-Hawkins

Press 49 is an award-winning hybrid publishing company that provides a full suite of publishing services to nonfiction authors who are also entrepreneurs, business owners, professional speakers, consultants, and business coaches. We publish books and eBooks on leadership, professional and personal development, and memoirs.

The owner of Press 49, Bridgett McGowen-Hawkins, is a professional speaker, consultant, coach, and an award-winning author, which means she knows how to use a book as an elevated business card and the title of "published author" to create revenue-generating opportunities.

As a hybrid publisher, we provide the same level of service and quality the author receives from a traditional publisher. Some of the differences are that you retain creative license and have a say in every aspect of how your book is produced, you receive 70% of net book sales in perpetuity, and you retain 100% of the rights to your intellectual property.

A gift for you...
