Karen represented me for my latest book. I've worked with other publishers before and she was easily the best. Her team did an incredible job from providing me guidance on my book, great editing, and outstanding cover design. Her team's response time was exceptional. They were always well ahead of me and ready to go. Karen got my book placed on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble.com. The coup de gras was Karen's bestseller program. Her program got my book to #1 on three Amazon bestseller lists!!! I would highly recommend working with Karen and her team.

Karen Strauss and the team at RockStar Publishing were a dream to work with! After procrastinating for months, trying to "self publish," RockStar was the perfect solution. A publishing company with years of experience blended with the most up-to-date knowledge of e-publishing and distribution. I couldn't have asked for more!

I had the pleasure of working directly with Karen Strauss when she was the major client sales rep for a national book publisher that I worked for as an art director. Her insight into the marketplace were invaluable, timely and relevant. Without her professional guidance, networking skills, resourcefulness, and utter charm, the publisher would have missed many opportunities expand their market shares to become the leader they are today. I highly recommend Karen for your business!

Being my initial foray into having a book published, I could not have managed all of the details without Karen's expert guidance. Her direction was clear, her communications timely, and her responsiveness (even to my vexing questions) gratifying.

When it comes to your first book, there are many issues that come up. You learn that the publication of the book is far more than just writing the book! With my first book, "49 Stupid Things People Do With Business Cards... And How to Fix Them!" it was great to have Karen in my corner, making certain everything went according to plan, and that I hit my publication deadline.
