Welcome to Story Monsters LLC!


Story Monsters LLC (formerly Five Star Publications, Inc.) is dedicated to helping authors of all genres strive for excellence with book production, marketing, and promotion. From publishing the award-winning Story Monsters Ink®, our monthly family magazine, to providing Publishers Support Services in areas such as editing, cover design, and publicity, you have come to the right place. A place to tell your story.



Story Monsters Ink is proud to announce our new campaign to promote literacy at home and in the classroom!


Join Story Monster's campaign to get #caughtreading by sending us a short video of your student(s) reading in the classroom, in the cafeteria, in the living room … wherever you “catch” them reading! We'll post the video on our YouTube channel, social media pages, and maybe even in Story Monsters Ink magazine! For our favorite video submitted each month, we'll send a free, one-year subscription to Story Monsters Ink and a Story Monster plush reading buddy. Video submissions must be accompanied by a signed release form.


Be sure to SUBSCRIBE to the Story Monsters Ink channel on YouTube!


I've been in the industry for more than 35 years. I've self-published and worked with large and small publishers. As a professional writer and author, working with Linda Radke and her team has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Her enthusiasm is infectious and she knows her business well!
