Editorial Mission Statement
It is our mission to publish and distribute quality books for adult readers seeking
academic information to improve themselves in careers, college, finance, parenting,
retirement, spirituality, and other related topics. We strive to deliver well-written,
comprehensive books that inform, advise, and educate the reader.
Your Managing Editor
Your managing editor is your personal contact throughout the entire publication
process, keeping you informed about each phase of your book’s production. He confers
with you on a regular basis about the status of your book, and is always available
by email for consultation. No matter which program you choose for your book, your
editor will offer his expertise to assist you in all phases of book production.
Depending upon the individual components of the program you select, your managing
editor will also carefully review your manuscript for technical consistency and
presentation—that is, for spelling, capitalization, grammar, punctuation, hyphenation,
subject/verb agreement, etc. Our editors do not, however, make adjustments to your
work that will alter content, organization, or creative expression. And you are
always given the opportunity to approve all revisions before proceeding with the
final printing and binding of your book.
If you have not provided camera-ready copy for your manuscript, your designer determines
the proper "feel" of your manuscript, which will be reflected in such elements as
cover material and design, type style, use of photographs/illustrations, and the
like. Again, you will be actively involved in these decisions.
Your Production Planner
When your book is ready for production, your production planner will determine the
publication schedule for your title, assign your International Standard Book Number
(ISBN) and secure a barcode, and coordinate all matters relating to printing and
binding. When and if you need it, Premier Rush Service is another option available
to our authors.
The on-demand publishing process requires that your book be converted to a digital
computer file suitable for "on-demand" printing. When you have finished editing
and proofreading your book, we can take over and convert it into a digital file
in a format suitable for high-speed digital printers.
Selecting the PLUS option means that you will be having our technicians professionally
layout (typeset) your book's inside pages, creating a custom design that emulates
the appearance of an existing book that you admire. (You'll send us photocopies
of a few pages to show us what style you want.)
If you are computer savvy and you wish to do the layout yourself, you can select
the Classic option and save the money. (We'll provide full technical specifications,
free PDF-creating software and a layout tips booklet to help you create a stable
