Self-Publishing Stars of 2015 is the list of self-published books that received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly’s Booklife service, which allows self-publishers to submit work for review in that venerable institution.

And I’m on it.

Apparently, only 18 books in the fiction category received stars this year. That’s a pretty small list, and I’m pleased to be on it.

Also, next time I should seriously consider how my titles turn out in alphabetized lists.

Thank you. I had no idea how rare those stars were when I got one.

The reviewer needs to explicitly tell the editor, "This book deserves a star, it's one of the best of it's kind" and then the editor needs to agree.
