Allyn Evans at booksigning at Hastings Entertainment Center


Star Publish author Allyn Evans and her local Stillwater Writers' Group hosted their annual book signing event at Hastings in Stillwater, OK.  Seven authors set up shop and visited with customers and each other.  The group used the opportunity to get mentioned in the local papers and to appear on a local TV station promoting the signing.  In an effort to give back, the authors invited writers to drop by to learn more about publishing and promoting.,
Star* Publish is a firm believer that the managers and employees, across the board, are those who work at Hastings Entertainment Centers. Allyn reinforces that when she says, "The book manager of Hastings was supportive of local authors. As always, we found the setup and support by the staff commendable."

Christmas miracles... In 1870, Martha Ferguson arrives in Hibbing, MN, intent on joining the fiancÚ she believes is waiting at the logging camp of Sawbill Landing. Instead, she finds him dead, and joins forces with Dr. Bryon Ferguson. As Christmas approaches, the entire camp needs a miracle. ...Revisited Generations later, the Ferguson family, now living in Hibbing, MN, is as desperately in need of a Christmas miracle as the family has ever been. Can two lost hearts find their way back together? Can the old tree at Sawbill Landing still make miracles? Is it too late to save the spirit of Christmas and the memories of miracles past?


Susan Quincey has declared Christmas as "off limits." The loss of her husband in Desert Storm has definitely caused a "bah humbug" attitude, despite her three year-old son Jeremy's needs. Just when she thinks it can't get any worse, it does. Her car won't start, but Kevin Dockter, her boss (who has admired her since the day she applied for work) offers to "jump" her, then hooks his car battery to hers. Susan is afraid of Jeremy getting hurt, but Kevin wins Jeremy's heart and they both go to work on Susan. A CHRISTMAS DREAM is a heart-warming Christmas tale, where even Santa gets a Christmas present. You will fall in love with the characters, from little Jeremy to Kevin's mother and even Buford, the lopsided reindeer. And yes, Kevin proves that miracles truly do happen at Christmas time, and in the most unexpected places. CC Hammond says, "This is your must-have three-hankie feel-good Christmas story, where the words '...and a little child shall lead them...' are never more true."
