America Star Books  a/k/a  Publish America

America Star Books, also known as Publish America, is the worst self-publishing services company we have come across. Their reputation was so bad that they changed the name of the company in an attempt to stay in business. We hope it doesn't work.

The books they produce have the worst covers and interior design we have seen from a company in this industry. Moreover, their practice of "publishing your book for free", but requiring the author to buy large quantities of books at very high prices is duplicitous at best. In addition, the publishing agreements we have seen from this company assign the publishing rights to the book to America Star for 7 years!

 Stay away from this company!
  • Very poor design services
  • Hidden costs
  • Assignment of publishing rights
  • Loss of all control over your book
