Star* Publish Times

Vol. 2, Ed. 6



Star* author Epstein LaRue, author of the newly released Highway Hypodermics: Travel Nursing 2007, was surprised when someone informed her that she was on Dr. Phil's website.

Hurrying to check it out, she missed it the first time around, but then spotted the link to her website listed on a sidebar on the right hand side of the screen, marked "Special Thanks."
How did this come about? Even Ms. LaRue isn't sure. The show it refers to is on Drug Addiction. There are several sources mentioned, including the Travel Nursing site. Fortunately, somebody else spotted it and notified the Star* author or she might never have known it. Is it any wonder why millions of people Google themselves daily? Just imagine what you might be missing out on!
Star* Publish's Marketing Director, Janet Elaine Smith, has contacted Dr. Phil to see if they might be interested in booking Ms. LaRue on one of his TV shows. So far, there has been no reply.
To see the site where she is listed, follow this link.
Epi LaRue, we are all proud of you, even if you had nothing to do with it! One day you will be among the famous, even if you can't quite claim the rich part yet.


Does the news about illegal aliens entering the United States alarm and frustrate you? Don't get worried; Star* Publish is not going to start lobbying Congress on this issue--or any other. Instead, we are trying to cross the Borders, and we are doing it well within the laws.
Star* Publish has received word from three different department heads that all Star* books have been successfully entered into the Borders Inc. database, and thus are eligible for stocking on their shelves nationwide. Yes, we have it in writing!  
As a result of this exciting news, Star* Marketing Department has created special promotional materials, as you see above, to distribute to participating Borders stores to hand out to their customers, announcing that they are now carrying Star* titles. As many managers have stated, "Everybody loves something for free."
Now the rest of the job kicks into effect: letting the Borders stores know about the Star* books. So far, the reception has been wonderful. Thank you, Borders, for letting us cross over into your Borders!
