Still in the idea stage? Have a manuscript in hand? Ready for that final polish? We're ready to work with you and your message at any stage. You can submit manuscripts for an honest evaluation of strengths, weaknesses, and potential. You can work with one of our writers to put your ideas on paper. Or, you can come to us to make sure your book really "shines" and is ready for production. Take a look at what we offer:
You give us the concept for your book and as much research and reference materials
as possible, and we will assign a writer who is the most knowledgeable in the
books' subject matter and intended audience. Within six weeks, we will send you
an outline for your approval. Once we have that, we will provide you with a draft
of the completed manuscript within four to six months, depending upon the nature
and complexity of the topic. You will be given an opportunity to revise this draft
and we will incorporate your revisions within two weeks of the time we receive
them. You will then receive a revised copy of your manuscript.

Every manuscript must be edited. If you already have a finished manuscript,
we can provide you with expert editing assistance. This can range from
"substantive editing" (in which there is some rewriting and reorganizing
of the manuscript and, in some cases, fact checking) to "copyediting"
(in which the manuscript is edited for syntax, grammar, spelling, punctuation,
and consistency of style). Depending upon the length and complexity of the manuscript
and the degree of editing required, we can provide you with an edited copy of your
manuscript within six to ten weeks.

Perhaps an unglamorous component of book publishing, proofreading is one of the
most important stages a manuscript goes through on the way to the bookstore. The
finest prose and the most expertly researched and written text are both rendered
suspect in the eyes of the readers if they contain errors, be they egregious or
simply careless mistakes. Five Star Publications' proofreaders have the breadth
of knowledge and experience to assist the authors of books ranging from read-to
books for toddlers to adult fiction/non-fiction.
