what people say about us

For me personally, Inspired Publishing was God sent. I have been looking for a platform to get my story out there, and immediately when I attended the Self-Publishing Master class, I knew I wanted to have my book published with Inspired. The time that you invested for all the writers and future writers makes it worthwhile. Thank you tons. I'm inspired.

Bridgette Leboho, author of “I Sing a New Song”

It's been an awesome honour and great pleasure working with the Inspired team on my first book. I was totally impressed with their level of professionalism and creativity. I know there was no way I could have had such a world class product without the Inspired touch.

Fikile Oyekanmi, author of “Girl, you’re all that!”

Inspired Publishing really helps dreams come true. They are never controlling and demanding but true to their name. They 'inspire' , support and encourage. One has a lot of freedom to give wings to your thoughts. Yet everything is done and checked with excellence. Their team is humble and open-minded. I, for one am loyal to Inspired Publishing. Without Darren and his team all ideas would have been undeveloped in my mind. He is such a safe place when one is still a newbie! Do not hesitate if you wondered if you too can get that book published!

Gretchen Ries, author of “My Klipalbum”

What an amazing and experience! I thank God Almighty for connecting me to Inspired Publishing. I didn’t have any knowledge about publishing but they welcomed me and helped make my dream come true. I was treated like a queen at my photoshoot. I have never experienced anything like this. I know that God’s hand is on Inspired and I can see my book coming to life. They are anointed to help first time writers make dreams come true.

Nonhlanhla Gugushe, author of “Now I Know”

It is a great honor for me to have worked with you and your team, I will always recommend Inspired Publishing to all those who are serious about getting their stories heard by becoming Authors, from an idea to manuscript to proof reading and editing, till the final product. Your everlasting support, friendliness and commitment was amazing and of the highest world standard and professionalism. I am forever grateful and thank the Almighty God to have worked with you and your best team. Keep up the excellent work and dedication. Thank you for making my dream a reality.

Pheello Ntuka, author of “The Path to Light”
