What our Authors Think of Us

“I’m amazed by the speed and efficiency with which Motivational Press handles its business. I’ve had more than 40 books published and I’ve worked with all the major presses–Penguin/Putnam, Jeremy Tarcher, McGraw-Hill, Harper San Francisco, Rodale, Adams Media, and many more–and I’ve never seen anything like this!”

“Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the excellent care you have given me during the process of publishing my book.  You have held my hand every step of the way with such patience, flexibility and compassion.  You made me feel as though I was your number one client, answering my emails around the clock and always responding with an enthusiastic, “yes!” regardless of the question.  I am blown away by the professional quality of my book, as well as the quick, reliable and overall outstanding service you have provided.  Motivational Press is true to its name. You have given me the confidence I needed to get my book out into the world.  Thank you for the honesty and integrity your bring to your work.  I wish you much continued success with your many meaningful projects and I look forward to working with you on future endeavors.”

Dara Feldman – Author, The Heart of Education: Bringing Joy, Meaning and Purpose Back to Teaching and Learning


“MP is “highly responsive” and “generous with publishing resources”.  Once my contract was signed, MP immediately initiated the necessary steps to get my book to print.  The book cover, the manuscript edits, book launch advice, endorsement selection, media page, and sales strategy information have all been shared with me in a series of regularly sent emails supported by “live person” phone conferences when I’ve asked for them. “

Motivational press has been wonderful to work with. When it came to the cover of my book they were able to take my vision and bring it to reality. They have also been patient and professional with me in achieving the highest quality in my manuscript. Promp, Professional, and Friendly! 

Sharron Magyar


Over the past six months it has been a special privilege to collaborate with Motivational Press. My experience has been truly positive in all the various ways that I have interacted with MP.  MP  is not only knowledgeable, competent, reliable but also very pleasant (in the well known American way),caring, patient, always willing and able to answer questions repeatedly and to  solve problems. In all sincerity, I would not hesitate to recommend MP to new authors.”

“Motivational Press is an excellent publishing company. They have great people that connect with you and get you going. They know exactly what they are doing and how to do it the best. Motivational Press has opened many doors for me and lead me to much greater opportunity.”

Alyssa Rispoli


“In the short time we have worked together, Motivational Press has demonstrated it’s prowess in marketing books.  Given you are fairly new to the industry, you are not in a quagmire of the old established ways of doing things.  You are nimble in using the latest technology and marketing methods that will translate well into selling more books.  You are the first to ask me to record my book in order to put it out on iTunes.  

Having representatives stationed around the world to encourage foreign publication provides the potential for greatly increased exposure, and launching an author’s magazine featuring your authors as well as an author’s catalog are two more strategic moves.  Your idea of getting authors to network among themselves as well as with media as demonstrated last week in New York goes far beyond what other publishing houses do.  Lastly,  the interviews lined up on my behalf are impressive and surpass some of the traditional publishing houses.”

“Working with Motivational Press rather than self publishing is similar to working with an experienced financial analyst instead of going it alone in the stock market.  I have found Motivational Press and your staff, beginning with you as CEO, to be knowledgeable, responsive to my requests and questions and the ideal assist toward a successful and profitable publication. Your broad working relationship with outstanding journalists outside of Motivational Press, such as my author’s coach, Ann McIndoo, is the frosting on the cake from my association with your firm. I definitely will look to Motivational Press for publication of my next book.  I’m proud to be one of your authors.”

Jim Olson


“I am very happy I chose Motivational Press.  There are the things I like most:  You are “alive and well”  innovative and promptly responsive. You are a “one stop shop” I appreciate that you do all that is needed to prepare, design, print and publish and market even globally. It provides congruency in all efforts and I feel more secure with that than going from company to company or person to person for each step. I am willing to do what I know is necessary to promote my book and feel totally supported. You are helpful but not pushy. You are a “YES” company.  I like your principles and so far, it seems you live them earnestly. Thank you for having created such a caringly thought out and comprehensive organization.  It is refreshing.”

Andrea Becky Hanson, CEHP, IKYTA, E-RYT-500


“Motivational Press has been responsive and knowledgeable.  Justin Sachs communicates consistently and quickly with a high level of quality. What is especially impressive is the team of experts Motivational Press has been able to assemble.  The team can provide answers to any and all questions with the utmost speed and accuracy. The depth of service has been impressive and I am sure is unsurpassed in the publishing industry.”
