CHANDLER, AZ (May 7, 2010) - Celebrated author and owner of Five Star Publications, Linda Radke, shined at the 2010 Paris Book Festival by winning two awards: First Place in the "How-To" category for her book, The Economical Guide to Self-Publishing: How to Produce and Market Your Book on a Budget, 2nd edition, and an Honorable Mention in the "Cookbook" category for Legends in the Kitchen: Celebrity Recipes for a Cause, which she coproduced with Mrs. Howard Keel. The global contest permitted entries in French, English, Spanish, German and Portuguese, making her double win a standout in an aggressive competition.

Radke's 2010 Paris Book Festival accomplishments come hot on the heels of Five Star Publications' recent acceptance of three first-place 2010 Glyph awards and four "Finalist" nods from the Arizona Book Publishing Association (ABPA) for excellence in publishing. The Glyph is ABPA's equivalent of the Academy of Motion Pictures' Oscar.

In addition to the nuts and bolts of publishing, The Economical Guide to Self-Publishing gives readers an invaluable arsenal of conventional - and unconventional - methods for marketing, promoting and obtaining publicity. Beyond being updated to remain current with the ever-changing publishing industry, the new edition includes brief articles from authors, who share their candid experiences on the front lines of book promotions.

Legends in the Kitchen brims with delicious recipes, making it possible for chefs and novice cooks alike to impress their diners with celebrities' favorite dishes. In addition to being an ideal gift and must-have for cookbook collectors, a portion of the book's sales supports the Motion Picture & Television Fund.

Among Radke's many other accolades, she authored Linda F. Radke's Promote Like a Pro: Small Budget, Big Show, a Doubleday Executive Program Book Club selection; she is a founding member of the ABPA; and she was named Book Marketer of the Year by Book Publicists of Southern California.

Five Star Publications is approaching its 25th year of doing business in Chandler, Ariz. For more information about Five Star Publications, Radke or her award-winning books, visit www.FiveStarPublications.com, email info@fivestarpublications.com, or call 480-940-8182..
