Praise

Working with Motion Publishing doesn’t suck.

Most authors despise their publishers. Ours don’t.

Motion Publishing was instrumental in helping us get our latest book published. From content organization to layout and editing to proofing, Motion was with us every step of the way. They even handled our last-minute requests with professionalism and a can-do attitude. When publishing a book, you need a publishing company with the expertise to produce a quality product, on time, and on budget. Motion Publishing definitely fits the bill. We definitely plan to use them again in the future–for the sequel to our first book or for a new title.

—Scott Batchelor, Marketing Communications Director, SAS

Motion Publishing helped us to publish our first MIKE2.0 book in 2013. We didn’t really realize how much more work needs to be done to get a book published even after you have written all of the content.

Phil Simon and Motion Publishing’s team took excellent care of all the editing and proofreading, creating the cover art and dozens of diagrams, publishing, and distribution via print and e-book channels. And equally important, everyone provided advice and project management throughout the process. This was very reassuring.

The team was easy to work with, very collaborative but also well organized. I highly recommend Motion Publishing to anyone who is thinking about publishing a book without the hassle of a large publishing house.

—Andreas Rindler, Cofounder, MIKE 2.0

Publishing a book is no easy task. Just like anything else in life, your book will only get one shot with consumers. In many cases, this will happen before they ever pick it up and read a page. Your book must compel people to not only pick it up, but to also want to read more than the first and last paragraph. Motion offers you the ability to accomplish all of these goals.

I was impressed with the high level of guidance and expertise that the Motion team offers. I recommend Motion Publishing to anyone who wants to publish more than just an average book.

—Courtney R. Logan, Author, Shaped by Fire

It’s tough to pin down what Motion Publishing has to offer through check boxes that state top attributes. Perhaps it’s because the value that Motion Publishing brings exceeds a series of seven check boxes—even though it would be easy to check them all.

I would recommend Motion for any company looking for an edge in our hyper-connected era, for authors that wish to build a strong personal brand platform by launching a book, and for anyone seeking keen insight on anything from business ecosystems to technology trends. Motion is not a traditional publisher by any means. Motion Publishing operates under unique model for authors by putting the power back in their hands, and working with them in ways that maximize the quality of their books, offering opportunities that other publishers cannot. Motion is extremely versatile.

Phil Simon is very intelligent, has a talented team of publishing professionals, and is ultimately focused on bringing remarkable products to market. This is what Motion has done for me and my new book, Mindshare.

—Nikos Acuña, author, Mindshare

The Internet provides powerful capabilities to help people achieve their goals. Motion Publishing understands how technology enables creative endeavors like books.

Phil Simon gives great advice based upon his considerable experience. His infusion of reality and no-holds-barred pragmatism will help you succeed.

Motion Publishing is a breath of fresh air. As a publishing consultant, Motion Publishing helped me better define my next book and broke the logjam.
