The nine-time award-winning American author and ‘Self Publishing Guru’ J.J. Hebert is rapidly shaking things up in the self-publishing industry as his platform MindStir Media forms a national audience. The author and winner of four #1 Amazon Best Seller publications have become an advocate for authors looking to reserve rights and royalties over their work.
Hebert has gained great support after a successful endorsement was struck with Shark Tank’s Kevin Harrington. The partnership meant that Hebert and Harrington could fuse entrepreneurship and literary advocacy to deliver a service that has yet breached the market.
Now Hebert focuses on bringing together his industry experience, knowledge, and years of writing abilities to offer other young authors an opportunity of having their work displayed among some of the greatest modernist writers.
How J.J. Hebert became the ‘Self Publishing Guru’
Hebert followed an unorthodox road to his modern-day success. After the success of his debut novel in 2009, with more than 100,000 copies sold, ‘Unconventional’ led to the rise and current success of MindStir Media. In his position as an author, Hebert managed to scrummage together a sense of hope and prosperity for future writers and self-publishing authors. It’s not only these efforts that honed him the name the “Self-Publishing Guru” by The Good Men Project but his daring adversity to be more than what the industry could offer him at the time of his debut novel.
Since his first publication released nearly 12 years ago, Hebert has appeared in major publications, including Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc, Business Insider, and Yahoo! Finance, among others. Earlier in the year, he was named “Entrepreneur to Watch in 2021” by International Business Times and was selected as one of the top pioneers for entrepreneurial achievements by Influencive.
The birth of MindStir Media
MindStir Media started taking shape shortly after Hebert’s debut novel in 2009. Now more than a decade later and with 700 publications as the owner of the company; both Hebert and MindStir Media are leading the self-publishing industry to new heights.
One can almost see how MindStir Media has become a platform for authors, and by authors. Offering new authors and writers executive rights to their work, and allowing them to retain 100% of their royalties.
It has grown into one of the most sought-after self-publishing companies in the world being ranked #1 by BestTechie, Kev’s Best, and the iTech Post. But Hebert has found solace in what he does and has to offer for the literary community. J.J. recently joined the writing team at Entrepreneur Magazine and became a member of the Forbes Business Council.
The occupation of the modern writer and novelist has become an enduring one. As the world seeks change in a post-pandemic society the work Hebert and MindStir Media has brought to the literary community creates a fresh source of rejuvenation. We’ve reached the forefront of the self-publishing boom, with Hebert and MindStir Media at the lead.
