About Us

​Upon A Star Books Inc. is a publishing and publicist company in Toronto, Ontario founded in September 2012. The best way to describe Upon A Star Books Inc. is: a 'concierge' publisher and publicist.  We take care of the needs of our clients, from printing, event planning, booking interviews, designing bookmarks and banners and so much more! Why do we do this? We do it because the founder Jessica Alex knows what it's like to be on the author's side, and having to do everything on your own. It can be tough! We work with our clients step-by-step to make sure their needs are met and they have the best experience of publishing as possible.

Upon A Star Books Inc. currently has two imprints, Upon A Star Books and the newest imprint, Victorine Publishing.
Upon A Star Books has a goal to publish and promote books that inspire and educate children, youth, and young adults.

Victorine Publishing publishes books for adults that fall under humour, self-help/motivational, food and health.

With a specialty in children's books, we have helped authors and aspiring authors get their new book off the ground. From editing to illustrations, we literally have them covered!

The first publication, "What If the World Had No Colour?" (2012) was written by founder Jessica Alex. The author was inspired to write this book because racism, bullying, and prejudice are topics that children (and adults too) are faced with everyday. It is currently available for purchase by going to our Shop! page. Our second publication, "Feels Good to Be Kind" by Khalilah Brooks was released on June 3, 2014. A sing-along for children ages 3 to 5, it is available for sale at auntyb.ca.
For other book releases, please visit our clients' page.

Why help authors who haven't published with us? It's because we like to help, and it is #ForTheLoveofBooks! If your book will be educational or inspirational by Moving mountains, one page at a time®™, then you're the perfect fit! From self-help books, memoirs, children's books and fantasy fiction, we've worked with self-published authors for various projects from organizing book signings to book launches.
