Celebrating our 9th year, StarShine Magazine is merging with Sandy-Lo.com!

Twilight star, Peter Facinelli supports Sandy Lo by posing with her debut novel, Lost In You.

After making StarShine Magazine a household name among entertainment fans and industry insiders alike since 2001–founding editor, Sandy Lo has decided to take things in a new direction.  In a recent blog post on www.sandy-lo.com, Lo discusses her struggle to juggle many avenues of her career.  Since forming StarShine, Lo has also moonlighted as an entertainment publicist and more recently, a self-published author with 2 novels under her belt.

“I love the opportunities running StarShine Magazine has brought me–I wouldn’t be where I am today without it,” Lo says.  “But I have decided to focus more on my writing career as well as working as a publicist.”  Lo debated on putting StarShine Magazine to bed, but she knew that was out of the question.  “It would be like giving up a child for me.”

Instead, StarShine Magazine will live on via Sandy Lo’s personal website: www.sandy-lo.com.  StarShine will be a section on the site where articles, interviews, and entertainment news will still be posted, but will give Lo a chance to focus on promoting her own artistry as well, such as her novels as well as her songwriting.
