Have you written a book and don't know what steps to take next? 

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. 

How to submit to Star?

To submit your book to Star, follow these steps: 

  • Email tcmcmullen@starpublishllc.com 
  • Put "Submission" with the title of your book in the subject line. 
  • In the body of the email, tell us a little about yourself, the book, and why you wrote it.
  • Give a brief synopsis.
  • Attach three chapters in either a Word .doc, .docx or Pages document. 
  • Explore this site, our package plan options, and ask any questions you may have.
  • From there, we'll guide you every step along the way.
