The Millennium Star Publishing Peer Preview
We will read your book for free
Free page on our website to showcase you and your book
We receive requests on a daily basis from authors who are looking for help in promoting their books. Our book contests are a great way to submit your work to scrutiny in the hopes of winning the prizes. But not everyone can be the grand prize winner. That’s why we initiated our Free Peer Preview. Unlike a book contest, everyone who submits a book is a winner. Five published and seasoned authors will read your book. Your book will then be assigned 0-5 stars based on 5 scoring categories. Regardless of how many stars your book receives, through our third party support, you still receive recognition and opportunities to enhance your marketing efforts, such as free inclusion on our website. Our volunteer authors will read all submitted books on an ongoing basis throughout the year. Additionally, you may submit as many books as you wish. Any book submitted for Peer Preview may also be entered into our current book contest and any book submitted for the book contest may be sent for Peer Preview.
HOW THE FR EE PEER PREVIEW WORKS

offer, everyone is a winner. We offer free readings of your book by 5 published
authors, hence the name Peer Preview. You do not need to enter the Book Contest
in order to submit your books for the free Peer Preview. Each book entry will
receive a rating of 0-5 stars and will receive the following opportunities:
Books receiving 3-5 stars - Sample Millennium Gold Star foil seals, with the approval to purchase additional seals to affix to your books and to use for marketing purposes. The Millennium Gold Star Seal indicates that the book bearing the Millennium Star emblem is worthy of honor and comes suggested by Millennium Star Publishing, thereby increasing credibility, recognition and sales opportunities. Foil imprinted labels will be available for purchase through the website.
receiving 2-5 stars - A dedicated page on the Millennium Star Publishing
website for at least 6 months where your book will receive a short synopsis,
one image of you or the book cover, and a link back to your website or other
trusted and Millennium approved site such as Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com,
etc. if applicable. You are encouraged to link to our site and your specific
page as well to optimize your online search engine visibility.
receiving 0-5 stars - Books submitted for Peer Preview may enter the
Millennium Star Book Award Contest and will enjoy the advantage of a first
reading. NO need to send any additional books either.
Books receiving 0-5 stars - Upon completion of the readings, our peer judges will return the 5 books to Millennium Star Publishing, and we will offer those gently used books for sale on our website. This is just another way to give you added exposure. Proceeds from the sale of these books go directly to the charity, http://www.sewportourtroops.com or to our local library for the purchase of new books. You can designate your choice on the submission form below.
receiving 0-5 stars - Peer Preview readings, judging, seal approval, free website page
and promotion of your 5 books will occur within 30 days or less from the time we receive
your submission, giving you a jumpstart on your marketing and promotion
WHAT WE NEED
The Peer Preview is free as far as any reading fee charges. Your one page on our website is free as well. Our reviewers are experienced and published authors with backgrounds in writing, editing, publishing, design, illustration, and book reviewing, who are interested in encouraging writers to write, therefore they are not paid. However, we do need to cover our mailing and packaging expenses to send five books to five different reviewers and then have them sent back to Millennium Star Publishing. We ship flat rate via USPS at a rate of $4.95, $5.20 or $10.95 each way, depending upon the size of the book. We will absorb any costs exceeding $10 per book for a round trip mailing. Therefore we require that you send:
5 copies of
submission form - see below
$50.00 per distinct book title to cover some of our mailing expenses - You may mail a check, money order or
online with a credit card
based on five categories based on the specific book genre, with the criteria set forth by our highly esteemed
selection committee, and a scoring potential of 0-5 per category.
All final scores are the
property of Millennium Star Publishing and details, comments, oral or written
statements will not be made available to any award recipients, entrants, or
other outside parties.
Your book synopsis for inclusion on
your dedicated page on our website shall be written by you, with the
understanding that we may edit for content, grammar, etc.
We will accept entry submissions by authors, illustrators, publishers, self publishers and agents as well as self published and small press titles, books without an ISBN, and galley/ARC copies, if final copy is not yet available.
