If you've written a book and would like to pursue publishing it so readers can enjoy your hard work, but don't know where to start and want to keep control of what happens with the book while earning some of the highest percentages in the publishing world, we can help.
I've finished my manuscript, what do I do now?
Once you are sure you have your characters, plot, and writing where you want them, it's time to explore what it is you want for you and your book. At one time, the only path was to spend years working with agents to market your work to a traditional publisher. The emergence of Print on Demand publishing changed that and gave authors new options and control. Today, the self-publishing option is what many authors choose. Self-publishing, though, isn't for everyone.
If you want the benefits of self-publishing but not the hassle of dealing with ISBN numbers, store listings, and need access to professional and affordable editing, formatting, and cover designing, I invite you to examine this website and consider submitting your book to Star.
Each package with Star includes copy edits, professional formats, and custom covers using photographs the author chooses or provides. Two upgrades at deeply discounted prices are also available. We also provide authors with ISBN numbers for their books, and take care of all the headache details such as listing with book stores. Our goal is to make publishing your precious work as painless and pleasant for you as possible while providing quality stories for readers to enjoy. We also stay in touch with our authors, you'll never be just a number or just a name. We consider any author who joins Star her friend and business partner.
