Before you Submit:
Please understand, that to keep a publisher like Star in business, we
need to have the authors cover most of the cost of creating their book. With Star, authors receive deep discounts for editing,
cover designing and professional formatting. In most all cases, what Star needs is about the same amount an edit would cost
you outside of Star. You won't find another place that can offer so much for so little, in part because Star has professionals
who volunteer their time and expertise for the love of books and authors.
Because of this, we need you to view our packages:
Let us know what one suits your needs best. If you have any questions at all, just
email us and we'll be in touch as quickly as we can. If you don't hear from us within two work weeks, please email or call
us to make sure the email was received.

to avoid the unpleasantries of the publishing world and how to get our books to the top. Now we're here for you, to help you
through the process and to provide the best for your book and for you.
submit queries to T.C. at submissions(at)starpublishllc.com. In the subject line, put Query: Title of Book. In the body of the email, include a short synopsis of your
book, the genre, an author's bio, and a website link if you have one. Please state which Publication Package
you are interested in (see details here).
If we at Star are interested in considering your manuscript
more closely, you will be asked to send the first full chapter as an email attachment as a Word .doc file. After evaluation
of this chapter, Star will request the complete manuscript. Acceptance of your book will follow our evaluation of the

To indicate a section break or thought
break, use four (4) asterisks, centered (****), or use double spacing (4 line space).

We, at Star Publish, do
our very best for our authors. We have experience in all areas and, although we welcome and take into consideration
all author's suggestions about their work, there may be times when something must be changed to keep up to the standards bookstores
and readers expect. No editing outside of correcting typographical errors will be done without your approval,
but we ask for our authors to seriously consider any suggestions our editor makes with an open mind and a willingness
to better their work. If you feel you may not be able to completely trust our advice and judgment, please know
there are many publishers out there, without such strict contingencies, who would be happy to publish your work.
We are always considerate
and respectful of our authors and are looking for authors who can return that respect in a friendly partnership.
The success of any book counts on that relationship and on how hard the author is willing to work at promoting and marketing.
We do all we can to get you started with the best book possible and guide you through some aspects of the promotion and marketing,
but the true success depends on you, the author.
