Cheré Harris – MindStir Media Reviews

chere harris author photo“From the time I was a young girl I have always enjoyed writing short stories and poems but I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would have a book published one day.  I am so glad I came across MindStir Media book publishing because they helped make my writing dream become a reality.  From the beginning they worked with me making sure I understood the process and took me step by step as they turned my writings into a beautiful paperback book.  I was assigned Ali, who was excellent with taking care of my every concern with prompt responses making sure I was completely satisfied with the results.  Mr. Hebert was also extremely helpful with taking the time to personally mentor me on the best avenues to take for marketing my book to get the best results.  I highly recommend every author who desires to have their book published to work with the professional staff at MindStir Media because I was completely satisfied with the process and I look forward to working with them on future projects.” –Cheré Harris, author of Waiting on God’s Promises

Selma Curtis – MindStir Media Reviews

“J.J., without you I could not have accomplished that. You made it so easy for me. You were so available all the time. Even when I went to Europe we [sent] text message[s] to each other… You are [a] great publisher… MindStir Media, it is the publishing company who is willing to do everything for you … J.J., I hope to work with you [for] many, many years…” –Selma Curtis, author of Sergeant Major’s Daughter

Cameron Conaway – MindStir Media Reviews

Cameron Conaway, award winning author at MINDSTIR MEDIA self publishing company“I came to J.J. Hebert and MindStir Media with a complex and stressful situation regarding the publication of my book. With confidence and consistency, J.J. helped navigate me through what options I may have both within and outside of his company. He did this all well before I made a commitment or payment to him. … J.J.’s willingness to genuinely help, and the promptness with which he did (he often responded regardless of what hour I sent him an email, and this says something considering I am living in Thailand) allowed me to see that he is a good man who puts his morals before his business. As an online college professor, I can attest to the importance of “virtual visibility” and I can say that J.J. was always visible and always responsive in every step of the book publishing process … I’ve experienced his tenacity and work ethic, his open-mindedness and empathy. I entered the self-publishing game scared and critical, but through my experience with J.J. and MindStir Media I was able to expand my perspective and develop a newfound appreciation for the field … I highly recommend J.J. Hebert and the team at MindStir Media for anybody who has a story to tell.” –Cameron Conaway, award-winning poet (Cameron is the Executive Editor at The Good Men Project; a former MMA fighter; and a contributor at The Huffington Post)

Joy Stinson – MindStir Media Reviews

“I was totally ignorant about the publishing industry, therefore, I researched many companies before choosing book publishing company MindStir Media. I felt comfortable discussing my plans and intentions regarding my controversial true story of spiritual warfare with J.J. Hebert [president of MindStir Media]. He gave sound and honest advice. J.J., as well as the editor, was more than patient with my lack of computer skills, as it took several attempts to email the draft to MindStir … MindStir remained calm and produced a professional end product. I would recommend MindStir to any new author because I couldn’t have done this without their support and assistance.” –Joy Stinson, author of Out of the Darkness

David Lance Dean – MindStir Media Reviews

“I have recently published a title with Mindstir Media book publishers. It is a Christian oriented book on biblical prophesy — These Prophets and the Revelation. My experience with J.J. Hebert and the Mindstir staff has been excellent. They did an outstanding job on the cover design and interior layout. I have just recently finished a second manuscript and we are about to move forward with the new one. I am looking forward to working with them again and the promotion of both titles expecting everything will continue to be encouraging and helpful. Thanks so much for a good job well done.” –David Lance Dean, author of These Prophets and the Revelation

N.E. Brown – MindStir Media Reviews

NE Brown self publishing success story“I searched the internet for over a month looking for the right publisher for my book. I received calls from Asia to Puerto Rico and then I found MindStir Media book publishers. After your personal phone call, I knew I would be better served by a smaller more independent publisher than one that outsources to other countries. I must admit I was skeptical after I read what you said your company would do if I purchased the gold package. But….you delivered. I’m excited to now be a published author and have fulfilled my lifelong dream thanks to you and your talented group of editors, graphic artists, etc. I look forward to getting my other books published and can’t wait to see what the future holds. Having a professional team behind me sure makes it easier and allows me more time to write. Thank you.” –N.E. Brown, co-author of Galveston: 1900: Indignities: Book One, The Arrival

Karen Peters – MindStir Media Reviews

karen Peters self publishing success story“As a first time author I knew in my heart I had a good story to tell but soon found out how hard it was to get published. I had written an illustrated children’s book about horses for my oldest granddaughter when she was born. I gave up until I came across MindStir Media. J.J. talked me through the process and it was so simple. I had illustrations with my story but they were far from professional and only suggestions. Their children’s book illustrator Kathy and I spent a lot of time talking about my characters, their personality’s, and the details of the horses. Kathy was awesome and I was thrilled the first time I saw her illustrations; they were just as I had imagined them. MindStir Media has done a great job putting together my book and I am very pleased with their help and professional service. I now have not only a beautiful book for my grandchildren, but it will also be marketed and shared with others.” –Karen Peters, author of If I Only Had A Horse
