MindStir Media, a full-service self-publishing company, helps people from all walks of life self-publish, distribute and market their books (this includes paperback, hardcover, and ebook format). Each author at MindStir Media works directly with bestselling author J. J. Hebert, the founder of MindStir. He not only assists each author with the publishing process, but he also shares free book marketing tools and strategies that he uses himself. This ongoing one-on-one personalized assistance — which is included at no additional charge in ALL self-publishing packages — generally saves authors thousands of dollars and countless hours in marketing efforts because Mr. Hebert only focuses on proven book marketing methods.
Many of our competitors are large corporations (MindStir is not), and within those large corporations authors generally get lost in the crowd and mostly deal with faceless representatives. Additionally, those reps or “consultants” sometimes operate overseas. Yes, this means that many American authors are entrusting their books to reps located all the way across the world — but those authors usually aren’t aware of the outsourcing until after they’ve signed a contract with those other self-publishing companies and actually start working with them. Why are we telling you this? So that we can tell you that at MindStir you won’t get lost in the crowd, and we do not outsource anything overseas! MindStir is located in the USA, therefore that’s where all our services are rendered as well. No exceptions.
To recap: If you choose MindStir Media to help you self-publish your book, you’ll work directly with bestselling author J. J. Hebert throughout the publishing process. He’ll also help you with proven marketing techniques. Furthermore, MindStir is a “Made in America” company and its size ensures that you’re not treated as just another number.
NOTE FROM J. J. HEBERT: Maybe you’re in the same boat right now as I was near the end of 2008. You’re looking for a reputable self-publishing company. You want someone you can trust because, after all, this is your book you’re trying to publish. It might as well be your baby. You wouldn’t just hand off your baby to anyone, so why would you do the same with your book? I get it. I’m an author myself and before I found success, I spent a lot of time searching online for the right self-publishing company. I wasn’t pleased with the options available, so I launched MindStir Media to self-publish Unconventional, and the novel became a huge success! Self-publishing was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life…
Another one of my finest moments came when I decided to help other authors navigate through the self-publishing world. I’m passionate about helping other writers and I feel blessed to have helped hundreds to date, either by helping them self-publish through MindStir or by simply pointing them toward other resources. You see, some authors can figure out this whole self-publishing gig on their own. That’s fine with me. I help them too. However, most of my “clients” are those who want turnkey publishing solutions. They want a go-to person who’s “been there and done that” when it comes to self-publishing. I’m that guy, and I look forward to helping you.
