We welcome suggestions for new books and are happy to evaluate any proposals that are submitted to us. You will find here a listing with the names of our commissioning editors and their e-mail addresses.
It is not necessary to have written the whole book before you approach us. It is better to draft an overall plan and then to talk to a publisher at this early stage. If you are ready to submit a proposal we recommend you structure it along the following lines, in order that we can evaluate your project:
A summary (200-300 words) of the book's aims and scope.
A contents list with a short paragraph describing each chapter.
A realistic assessment of the intended readership. Please try to be specific and stress the major markets.
Consider the following:
4. Competing titles
A description of the book in relation to competing titles.
This should include:
5. Other relevant information
6. About the author(s)/editor(s)
Please provide some brief information about yourself and your co-authors, where appropriate, including any details of previous publications.
