Want to Become an Author?

Have an idea for a book? Are you an expert in your field? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of students? Then you’ve come to the right place. We strive to make learning accessible for students and combine technology and expertise to enhance the learning experience.

If you’ve got an idea for a book, we can help make it a reality. We look to partner with authors who are passionate about their area of expertise; who see a need (and a way) to make the learning experience better for students; who truly want to help people learn, comprehend, and apply the material to their lives. Because guess what? We are passionate about those things too.

Our authors are leaders in their field, the subject matter expert we rely on for content. We bring the publishing expertise. Together, we work to craft your message using our experience in educational publishing to guide the way.

So, what does becoming an author entail? Lots of writing and rewriting, collaboration with our publishing team, and probably more than a few cups of coffee.

As an author, you will be tasked with writing (and revising, and likely revising again). Get all those words out and onto paper (or computer screen). We’ll help you craft your message to make sure key topics are discussed logically, ordered coherently, and that the overall goal of your project is represented.

Then, you will collaborate with our team to make decisions about imagery, design, layout, and student and instructor resources. We’ll share our industry experience and mesh that with your expertise to ensure your book and all the associated resources are on par with other materials in the field.

Once your book is at the printer, we work to ensure appropriate marketing for the title as well as customer service to potential buyers. Our team takes care of everything so you can sit back and enjoy those royalties.
