We are the new America Star Books. Run by its employees, from the bottom up. We're introducing some of them here.
The company has a management, but there's not much top-down going on at America Star Books. Our team is close-knit, we have survived a bad economy and a failed printing experiment together (after printing a million books in-house, we decided that others could do it more efficiently, and cheaper..). And we have navigated the hurdles, obstacles, and roadblocks that come with being a true pioneer.
Established in '99, in fundamental ways we have been the first to attack and breach the walls of what used to be an elite industry. We have challenged entrenched powers. Google us, and see how they have reacted: rocks, mud, lawsuits. We won, they lost. Because at America Star Books, we're Davids. Goliaths don't scare us. We have the people on our side.
60,000 times we have published authors for free, as in: absolutely free.
4,000 times we have translated foreign books into English and published them in America, again at no cost to the authors, a record.
Our new book marketing and promotion arm, ASB Promotions, embraces self-published authors. That gate opened September '15: already we're approaching our first 1,000 joiners, at the fastest growth rate we have ever seen.
We are America Star Books, and ABS Promotions. You can find us in Frederick, Maryland, 15 minutes south of, where else, Camp David.
