Manhattan Book Group is the New York City-based division of MindStir Media LLC, a company wholly owned by USA Today/WSJ bestselling author J.J. Hebert. Manhattan Book Group, through its Author Program, touts the ability to help authors land on Amazon Best Seller lists and garner major media coverage on NBC, CBS and Fox affiliate websites.
The company mixes traditional publishing and self-publishing, according to its website, to form the best of both worlds. Authors at Manhattan Book Group get full support from a team as they would from a traditional publisher, but they also keep their publishing rights and 100% royalties as if they were self-publishing.
Mariel Hemingway, the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway and a bestselling author herself, praised Manhattan Book Group in a video posted on YouTube, stating, “If you’re looking to get your book published professionally, look no further than Manhattan Book Group. There’s a reason Manhattan Book Group is rated the #1 independent book publisher in New York City — they’re the best of the best. I recommend them without reservation.”
New York Weekly also provided its stamp of approval: “Manhattan Book Group is a reliable and viable option operated by a bestselling author with clear expertise in publishing.” Equally impressive, Manhattan Book Group is rated the no. 1 indie book publisher by the website Kev’s Best and Manhattan Book Group was also awarded “best publishing service in NYC” by the Stellar Business Awards.
Manhattan Book Group is currently accepting manuscript submissions in all genres. A literary agent is not needed to contact Manhattan Book Group. Authors can go to manhattanbookgroup.com to sign up for a publishing consultation and see if their work is suited for the Author Program, a program inspired by USA Today/WSJ bestselling author J.J. Hebert and his own success as an author. Everything offered through the Author Program is used by Hebert himself for his own books.
