About Five Star™

Five Star, an imprint of Gale, part of Cengage Learning, debuted in 1995 with four original Western titles published in hardcover format. These first edition Westerns have earned rave reviews in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, and Booklist, with hundreds of titles reviewed to date. Western Writers of America has honored multiple Five Star Western titles with Spur Awards for their superior quality.

In November of 1998, we began the Five Star Mystery line. In August 2000, the Mystery line increased in title count and became exclusively first edition publications. To date, Five Star mysteries have earned many starred reviews, Edgar® Award and Anthony Award nominations, and many titles have been listed on regional bestseller lists.

In June of 1999, we launched the First Edition Romance line, now called Expressions. The Five Star Expressions line combines the best of romance and women’s fiction titles from well-known authors and fresh voices in all the romance sub-genres. A strong focus on the interests of female readers is the driving force behind this line of original fiction.

The primary focus of Five Star is the library market. †When librarians sign up for a Five Star standing order, they save time and money, are assured regular free delivery of quality new titles in that genre, and can trust in our 100% guarantee of the products and services we provide.
