Five Star Authors Speak Out:
Thomas C. Adler thanks Five Star for all of their hard work and dedication to each author. Thomas C. Adler was impressed with the organization of Five Star, as well as their ability to network with important companies. All the authors were very friendly and professional, and it appears everyone will do very well in their endeavor. It is obvious that Five Star does not just take anyone (except for maybe Thomas C. Adler), as each author showed fine substance of character and literature. Thanks to Five Star for this opportunity of a lifetime.
Thomas C. Alder
What a fun time we had. It was so joy-filled to have met all of you. I wish you the very best in all your endeavors and God's wonderful blessings and favor be with you and your family. I had a blast at BEA and I sincerely hope you all did. It was an experience I will never forget.
The Magical Adventures of Clara the Cleaning Lady: Clara Meets Mr. Twiddles
Lights....Action.....Book Expo 2009! Loved every minute of it!
Four days in New York City filled with two of my favorite things-people and books-who could ask for anything more? You know you're in the right career when you spend day after day meeting & greeting, movin', groovin' & networking (meanwhile you forget to eat and your feet feel like they've spent a few rounds in a boxing ring....and lost), and all you feel is HAPPY at day's end.
I've been asking myself how I've been graced with a career that not only allows me to express myself fully (and I do mean FULLY), but also enables me to meet such fine, diverse, intelligent people and take me to NYC, too-and I just keep thinking; damn,
I must be the luckiest chick alive! I mean, of course, now I want to move to New York City. And I have book ideas bursting from every cell of my being, and I'm trying to figure out how to talk a small town family of five into moving to the Big Apple
and letting me bury myself in work for the next fifteen years, but that's for another time.
Until then, infinite thanks to Linda Radke, the president of Five Star Publications, Sue DeFabis, Jennifer Christensen, Lowell Radke, Jim Harris and everyone at this stand-out company for your generosity and this amazing opportunity.
You are tireless-composed entirely of elbow grease, intelligence and dazzling smiles. It was a privilege to finally meet you and some of your uniquely entertaining and talented "cast of authors."
Being at Book Expo America 2009 was like going to Paris in the spring with my top ten books, an endless supply of Pino Noir, and the Lover(s) of my choice-it was simply exhilarating!!
On The Brink of Bliss and Insanity
Being a part of BEA was awesome! I enjoyed so much meeting everybody, and I wish all of you the best. I'd like to praise Five Star's team for their hard work, commitment and dedication. They don't just work with you; they listen to you and consider your needs and feelings. Thanks, Five Star Publications, for giving us a sense of achievement and accomplishment and for making this exhilarating experience possible.
