Quasar Publishing's Goals
Quasar Publishing engages in four platforms. 
Children's books, The Zoo Adventure Series, are beginner and intermediate reader books that delight and entertain children of all ages.
Fantasy genre, the Dragonfly Sorcery Series, is a fresh new approach to fantasy.  We challenge the typical fantasy norms and introduce new races of adversaries to frighten and exhilarate our audiences.
Our education focused product, Exceed State Standards, helps teachers guide students through our 24 step essay writing program.  The program catapulted our test market students AYP, Average Yearly Progress, 35% in state writing assessments over a ten year test period.  The gains were consistently six times higher than the state's expectation for student writing improvement.
Our career focused product, Help Fix My Career, is a researched and proven career advancement system that guides our clients to maximize potential utilizing the skills and talents they already possess.  It targets their career search, focuses on their strengths, streamlines their resume and trains clients promote themselves to the right audience, ask the right questions, anticipate their future employers' needs, in a highly organized, efficient system.
Zoo Adventure Series visits elementary schools.  'Are You My Friend' is an early reader book with a valuable message.  Our clients have told us they want to share the message with their high school and college aged children as well as their grand-kids.  There really is no age limit for this valuable message about friendship.  Please contact us to schedule a visit to your school. 

Zoo Adventure Series and Quasar Publishing visit book festivals all over the country.  Look for us in your festival's children's sections as well as publisher or sponsor sections at book festivals near you. 

Exceed State Standards is looking to hire teachers to learn, present, and promote our program at education conferences, conventions, and schools all over the country.  Do you have what it takes to book your own engagements and present to groups of teachers and administrators at their schools?
