The Review Process

Your proposal will be reviewed internally by the editorial advisory board. These reviewers are experts in the field of interest related to your book idea. In general, we ask reviewers to assess whether the book proposal is of current interest; whether the outline covers all important facets of the topic in a logical sequence; and whether the writing style, level of detail, and frame of reference are appropriate for the intended audience. Frequently, reviewers will provide ideas and suggestions that can help you develop the manuscript. Based on feedback from the reviews, we will decide whether to proceed with the proposal and enter into a publishing agreement with you.
