Mind-Stirringly Easy Book Publishing ™
MindStir Media, a full-service book publishing company, helps people from all walks of life self-publish, distribute and market their books. Authors at MindStir Media receive ongoing mentoring from bestselling author & MindStir Media founder J. J. Hebert (with the purchase of our premium mentoring & paperback/ebook self-publishing packages or premium mentoring & hardcover self-publishing packages). A dedicated, friendly author representative is also assigned to every MindStir author…
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 overworked, stressed 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 (via a premium paperback/ebook package or premium hardcover package), you’ll have bestselling author J.J. Hebert as your mentor and you’ll also have your own author representative. Furthermore, MindStir is a “Made in America” company and its size ensures that you’ll receive the attention you deserve.

“After publishing three books with MindStir, there was never any question I’d call on them for my second series. Not only did they offer great service, and expert guidance before the release, but J.J. Hebert and his team were there after publication, helping me with critical details like timing the release for maximum impact, sharing tips on building a fan base, and giving advice on gaining exposure for my books. With MindStir, I got more than a publisher. I got a partner.” –Paula Wiseman, bestselling/award-winning author
