"I love hearing the stories on how our authors got their start, helping them reach their goals by assisting them in marketing plans, and I get to make them happy, every day!"
Sarah Freitas - Special Services team
"We're working in a laid back environment. Here you have the liberty to voice your opinion without being punished for it. The employer will work with employees on schedules. It is a joy to be able to bring onboard thousands of authors whose dreams are coming true: to be published in America!"
Emily Corfman – Acquisitions Editor

"At America Star Books, we get to work with budding authors and help to bring their creation to life. I have worked with over 10,000 authors worldwide, and each time I seek to exceed their expectations."
Anthony Saavedra – Design department
"Something new is always happening so my work keeps me on my toes. The office is a real family setting; everyone does care about one another and it makes the work day a fun one."
Jackie Velnoskey – Special Services, team manager
"I have been working for this employer almost 15 years, almost as long as the company exists. I have seen it grow beyond everyone's expectations, with almost 70,000 authors published, and still counting. I love the casual dress and atmosphere, the people-friendly work environment, and the flexible work schedules."

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.
