On October 19, 2008, Starr held a signing at the Thousand Oaks Rotary Club street fair.

On July 11-13, 2008, Starr co-chaired, organized and appeared at the West Coast Author Premiere 2008 in Ventura, California. Here's what others said about her:

We would like to thank you so much for organizing the West Coast Author Premiere that we attended today at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ventura.  We learned so much from the sessions, and the authors were so kind to talk to us after their presentations. Because of today, we are now more jazzed than ever about our book and have more tools and information to help us bring it to fruitation.  You have made a DIFFERENCE to us.  Thank you!

With much gratitude, Ellen K. Stein and Tobi Ruth Love
