About Us

St.Clair Publications

St.Clair Publications was founded with the desire to help lesser known authors. Stan's international associations and prominence in many literary and research organizations has allowed St.Clair Publications to offer a great opportunity to many yet undiscovered talents. St.Clair Publications is associated and distributed through Ingram Books, Barnes and Noble, Baker and Taylor Books, Amazon and many others.


Stanley J. "Stan" St.Clair
Stan has a degree in Religious Education from Covington College and Theological Seminary, and his work has been published around the world. He is the author of six published books, and the owner of St.Clair Publications. He was featured in the 2007-2008 Cambridge Who's Who Honors Edition and the International Who's Who in Poetry in 2004. He has traveled extensively around the globe, and has met a number of dignitaries and counts well-known authors among his friends. St.Clair Publications first book was printed in 1999 as a limited edition. In 2006, Stan utilized a joint effort with a Canadian publisher with offices in both Victoria, BC and London, to release his first major book, Prayers of Prophets, Knights and Kings, and launched the first St.Clair Publications web-site. This title was picked up by on-line book sellers in the US, Canada, the UK, France, and Germany. In 2008, Stan began obtaining ISBNs and formed a working relationship with a division of Amazon.com. In 2009, after a number of requests by authors, both new, and established, Stan decided to offer services to others which could expand their horizons. Stan and his wife, Rhonda, live in Tennessee, USA.

INDEPENDENT PROFESSIONAL EDITORIAL SERVICES

At times an author wants to hire an editor outside of our group to polish their book when looking to work with a publicist. Amy Lignor is an author and editor who is highly successful and willing to work with authors to prepare their work for a publicist. Amy is not a member of the St. Clair Publications staff, and charges separate fees. Therefore employing her would be entirely a mater of choice, and not contractual or binding upon a contract with St. Clair Publications, and Stan St. Clair and the Associates of St. Clair Publications will in no way be responsible for any issues arising from such contract with Amy or her agency.
