Publisher Known for Business How-Tos Enters the New Genre.
New York, NY – In the same mind-body-spirit vein as publishers such as Hay House and Beyond Words, Morgan James Publishing—traditionally a house for entrepreneurial non-fiction titles such as numerous incarnations of Jay Conrad Levinson’s bestseller Guerrilla Marketing as well as titles authored by experts or titans of business—has now entered into the genre of Mind Body & Spirit.
On March 13, 2019, Morgan James Publishing signed a publishing deal with author and modern spiritual philosopher Penelope Jean Hayes for the title The Magic of Viral Energy: A Guide to Supernatural Happiness, introducing the world to the concept of “viral energy” and the ways in which you can harness this phenomenon to improve interactions with those around you, while also gaining empowerment to fulfill your dreams. Part prescriptive personal growth and part metaphysics, Hayes’ literary agent Bill Gladstone (who also represents world-renowned authors Eckhart Tolle and Neale Donald Walsch) says, “We know that there is a home team advantage in sporting events. We know that we get good vibes or bad when walking into a meeting or even at a party. However, until now, no author has focused on the magic of viral energy as a technique for improving the quality of everyday life. It’s not the next The Secret, rather, The Magic of Viral Energy is what’s next.”
Dr. Fred Alan Wolf, quantum physicist, winner of the National Book Award in Science, and cast member of The Secret film says about this upcoming title, “Life is often a mysterious journey and author Hayes has offered her personal recollection of the many interesting revelations she encountered along her pathway towards wisdom and enlightenment. You will find this a welcome guidebook for your own passage through the bewilderment we all meet up with in finding what truly makes you happy.”
With this title, Morgan James Publishing enters into the genre of Mind, Body & Spirit (also known as New Thought), and why not? With the reader’s growing thirst for spiritual fuel, propelled even further in recent years by the OWN network’s Super Soul Sunday—a program that exclusively features conversations between Oprah and modern philosophers, metaphysics authors, visionaries and spiritual leaders—now more than ever, players in the book-business are looking to catch a wave that started rippling decades ago and has now become tidal.
With their author-centric business model, Morgan James has been at the forefront of a revolution in book publishing that is regularly described as “the future of publishing.” Publishers Weekly has listed the publishing house as one of the fastest-growing independent publishers of 2014, 2015, and 2018, and now—with their expansion into the realm of the New Thought genre—Morgan James is demonstrating yet another progressive evolution driven by the marketplace.
Publisher and founder David Hancock said this about the announcement: “Morgan James Publishing is very pleased and proud to be working with author Penelope Jean Hayes and agent Bill Gladstone. We are looking forward to sharing the ‘viral energy’ message of this title with book sellers and readers alike. We at Morgan James are excited about our entrée into this genre, bringing to the marketplace the next wildly popular spiritual teaching and introducing what we believe will inspire a whole new field of thought-provoking self-discovery.”
