The most frequently asked questions about our publishing activities are included below:
I am an author looking for a publisher. Do you currently accept manuscript submissions?
We are not accepting submissions from new authors at the moment. However, this may change in the future. You can subscribe to receive our news and announcements, where we may share updates about our publishing plans. You may also follow us on Facebook, and Twitter.
When you accept submissions from new authors, do you have specific submission procedures?
Yes, we have handouts with information for prospective authors, which explain the steps to be completed when submitting manuscripts for consideration.
What are your main criteria for accepting book proposals?
There are many factors influencing this decision, one primary consideration being the match between a given manuscript and our publishing priorities at a given moment. We do not base our publishing decisions on economic considerations only.
Do you work with literary agents?
We currently do not work with literary agents or other intermediaries; all our interactions are conducted directly with authors.
How can I read the electronic versions of your books?
The easiest way is by using a tablet or electronic book reader that supports Kindle books, Nook, or any other device capable of reading .epub files.
Can I read the electronic version of your books on a computer?
Yes, you can download and install the Kindle for PC program, which will retrieve the books from your Amazon Kindle account. For .epub files you can also use Adobe Digital Editions.
Can I place an international order from outside the United States?
Yes. One option is to order the digital version of our books. You may also order the physical book from stores like amazon.com and its international sites, such as Amazon Japan and Amazon Brazil.
Where can I find a preview of your books before I purchase them?
Previews of approximately 10% to 15% of each book can be found in stores such as Amazon.com, Apple iBooks and Google Play. If you like the preview, you may purchase it right then and continue reading the rest of the book.
Can I buy the books you publish at local bookstores?
Sometimes. The distribution channels of the Ingram Content Group make our titles available to more than 39,000 retailers and libraries around the world, who can get our books at a discounted price. However, it is up to each bookstore to order the titles it wants displayed on its shelves.
There seems to be a problem with my order, how should I proceed?
If the issue is related to the quality of the printed book (i.e. missing or stained pages), shipment (i.e books lost or damaged) or billing (i.e. incorrect charges or refunds), please contact the seller or store where you placed your order. We can only help you with issues we manage directly, such as review copies, and other promotional activities.
How can I request examination, review, or desk copies?
Educators may request examination copies by sending us an e-mail from their institutional account. Please include information about the class the book is being considered for, and the address to mail the book. Individuals interested in receiving advance review copies can email us to get a digital edition.
How can I contact an author?
Send us an e-mail indicating that it is a communication for a given author in the subject line of the message, and we will forward it for you.
How can I obtain permission to reproduce part of one of the books you published?
All requests to reproduce our published material must be made in writing, preferably by e-mail , including the relevant details of the intended use.
