Startup Steps

  1. To get started, send us a preliminary Table of Contents & a 1-page description of the book or a sample chapter.
  2. A BPF. We’ll send you our Book Proposal Form, that helps us all explore the project in greater detail.
  3. We’ll send you our electronic Style Guide, with important information about formatting, plus suggestions on how to make your writing really glow.
  4. If possible, send us a chapter at a time. That way, we can give you feedback as the work progresses, instead of waiting till the end and having to go back to make all those changes.
  5. If you’re doing a textbook, start to create your own questions and interactive exercises at the end of each chapter or section. We can also work with you on developing digital learning material which you can use on our E-learning platform.

EDITING & REVIEWING

Manuscripts are reviewed by in-house & outside reviewers. If the reviews are favorable, we’ll provide an experienced editor, who will work with you one-on-one, to craft the kind of book you’ll be proud of. If the topic lends itself to it, we will be able to help you turn it into a trade book.

DESIGN & PRODUCTION

Design elements throughout a book are not just a matter of appearance. They increase interest and improve understanding and remembering. At Linus, we use every design element possible, to achieve these goals. For example, we normally send two or three cover designs to choose from.

  • We provide the fastest turnaround time in the industry:from finished manuscript to the actual book.
  • In addition, we can produce a beta-edition, so you can field-test your book in class; then you can do a final edition as early as the next semester.
  • Our aim is to help you craft a book that is interesting, easier to understand and remember, and perhaps even enjoyable.

MARKETING YOUR BOOK

We focus on making your book available in every possible academic environment, from top universities to secondary schools. We are probably the only publishing house that uses virtually every marketing technique available to reach potential readers, including:

  • Direct mailings of catalogs, brochures, & flyers
  • E-marketing
  • Presence at conferences, trade shows, & exhibitions
  • Interviews on broadcast media
  • Print ads
  • And whatever works
