New York City-based hybrid book publisher, Manhattan Book Group, recently picked up a major endorsement from Mariel Hemingway, award-winning actress and the granddaughter of the legendary Ernest Hemingway.
Mariel Hemingway recommended Manhattan Book Group in her written statement: “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.” She was referencing the ranking that the online publication Kev’s Best gave to Manhattan Book Group.
Manhattan Book Group is also known across the publishing industry as a hybrid publisher because they offer a blend of self-publishing and traditional publishing options for authors. According to their website, they offer a bit of a twist: they guarantee results in that their authors garner major media coverage and hit best-seller lists. With that being said, Manhattan Book Group is selective in the projects that it takes on. However, one doesn’t need agency representation in order to work with Manhattan Book Group.
“Our independent, hybrid book publishing approach is very attractive for authors nationwide,” said J.J. Hebert, founder of Manhattan Book Group. “Our authors retain the rights to their work and keep creative control and full royalties, while receiving support from an entire publishing and marketing team. The fact that Mariel Hemingway also sees the value in what we are offering authors is game-changing and humbling.” Hebert has been featured in Business Insider, Inc, and Yahoo Finance as a business and publishing expert. He is also a writer for Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine.
Hemingway is the second influential supporter that has backed Manhattan Book Group. Previously, New York Weekly provided a positive review of the publisher, stating, “Is Manhattan Book Group a good book publisher for authors? In a word: yes. More specifically, it’s a good option for authors who aren’t quite sold on going the self-publishing or traditional route. Manhattan Book Group’s hybrid publishing approach mixes the two sides together and guarantees results for authors who pass their vetting process. Manhattan Book Group is a reliable and viable option operated by a bestselling author with clear expertise in publishing. Highly recommended.”
Manhattan Book Group is currently accepting submissions and new clients. The publisher provides authors with book design, editing, publishing, distribution and marketing and publicity services from its NYC-based office. To learn more, go to https://www.manhattanbookgroup.com/.
