Author Reviews


"I truly cannot say enough good things about Nyree Press. From the very first time I spoke to Kennisha, I could tell that this was a company that was really, truly invested in their authors. They will walk you through the entire process, cheering you on and answering every single question you have along the way. When you sign up to work with Nyree, you are signing up to work with an incredibly talented team of people who will truly care about you and your book. If you are an author, I highly recommend considering Nyree. There is nothing like holding your own book in your hands for the first time, and this is a wonderful team of people who can help get you to that point."

- Chelsea Jacobs, author of "Happy to be Alive, Because

"From the moment I had my first consultation with Kennisha, I knew I found a home. During our conversation, I was given a step by step process on how publishing works. Every question asked was answered with expertise. The information provided helped me address the fears and uncertainties I had with regards to publishing a book. The encouragement I also received when I shared about  the concept of my work was priceless. I felt and believed I could scale the mountain of self-doubt just from that  first conversation. I was also impressed with the fact that Nyree is a "one stop shop." I did not have to go look for an editor. They provide one for you should you choose to use their services. They have book cover and interior designers. Once I turned in my manuscript, I knew I was in good hands. Their professionalism and work ethic is impeccable. I am also impressed  with the respect they have for their writers.  I will definitely publish my next manuscript with them again!"

- Towera Loper, author of Girdle Girlfriends

Our History

In 2011, Kennisha Thornton, a self-published author of four inspirational books, opened NyreePress Literary Group as a writing firm to help authors write, develop their books and get published. She provided accountability and professional insight into the self-publishing world, and would later become their personal Literary Coach, and help them move forward toward self-publishing their books.

After gaining interest from new writers, Kennisha decided to transition NyreePress into a full service publishing company to provide all of the essential services writers needed to begin their journey's as published authors.


 I value books that inspire and motivate people to live a life of joy, love and grace toward each other. I wanted to give writers an opportunity to self-publish their books with a company that truly cares about their messages," says Kennisha Thornton, the Founder and CEO of NyreePress. "I wanted to create a place where authors could feel comfortable and "at home" while pursuing such a big mission! I'm grateful for the authors who consider us a part of their family."
