From the Five Star Publications, Inc. guidelines:

We have helped folks self-publish their own books for the past twenty years. Last year we offered several authors a Traditional Publishing Agreement.

We will consider authors who are well known, previously published a best selling title, or have a need to supply 1,000 or more copies of their book a year for speaking engagements, seminars, etc. Please do not call us with your ideas.

If you fall into any of the above qualifications and are willing to commit to giving us a budget for six months of publicity, then send us an outline of your book and the first three chapters. You will also need to submit your resume and a marketing plan, showing that you meet our guidelines. We want to know how you plan to help us sell your book.

If you have a great idea for a new book, but do not meet our guidelines, then you might want to consider Partnership Publishing or Self-Publishing.
