Self-Publishing Review from

Received a fantastic positive review from Here’s an excerpt:


I’m a published author myself and I’ve been through the ups and downs of having to find a publishing house willing to take on my first novel. Ever since then, I’ve learned that I can harness the power of the online medium in order to find self-publishing platforms which allow for a much more flexible approach to publishing your work when you know it deserves to be published. And among the best self-publishing platforms out there, there’s MindStir Media which offers great services at affordable prices which can meet just about anyone willing to publish something in the middle… Read the rest of this MindStir Media review

Edna Hunter, Christian book publishing review

“My name is Edna C. Hunter and I am a self-published author. My first book, a Christian fiction, “Karra Ann: Many New Beginnings” was available in April 2013. This was a dream come true for me thanks to J. J. Hebert and MindStir Media. I have been writing short stories and inspirational pieces since elementary school and although I had always dreamt about publishing my own book, I never thought this would ever happen. When I heard about self-publishing and spoke to individuals who had actually self-published, I began to research self publishing companies, but just couldn’t find a company I truly felt comfortable with. I continued to pray and God sent me to MindStir Media (or did He send MindStir Media to me?). I was already searching the web, and then there was the MindStir Media web site. I answered a few questions, closed out before finishing the questionnaire, and it didn’t take long before J. J. Hebert, the president of MindStir Media, called me himself for a free consultation and thus, here was the opportunity for a “new beginning” for me.

J. J. was easy to talk to, answered all my questions, was patient (extremely patient) with me and today I have a book with beautiful front and back covers, beautiful inside pages, and it is a product I am so very, very proud of. As I went through the process with MindStir Media, J.J. guided me through each step and did not rush me to make decisions that maybe others could have made in a timelier manner. I am proud to recommend MindStir Media to others who would like to, or think they would like to, publish their own created work. If you don’t go to the website and inquire, you may never know what an outstanding opportunity you let pass you by. Thank you J. J. for your expertise, patience, and integrity.”

Acacia Oak, book publishing company review

Book publishing company MindStir Media published Acacia Oak’s book, The Banished Medieval Queen. She has since published another book with MindStir (2014). Here’s what she had to say:

“It’s not possible to over praise J. J. Hebert and the professional team at MindStir Media. From my original query to the receipt of my ‘Author Copy,’ I found this group responsive, professional, respectful of my wishes, and dependable. Any deadline or time line they gave me was honored. J. J. is a consummate professional and instrumental to my novel seeing the light of day. I recommend MindStir Media without qualification.”
