Information for Prospective Authors

If you are already an author with CDPublishing.org please refer your enquiries to your production editor.
 
If you are an author you can send us a 2-5 page "Book Proposal" with the required attachments (see below).
 
If we are interested in considering your book for publication we will ask for more chapters or your entire manuscript. At this point we will send your manuscript to readers for their comments. 
 
If we decide to publish your book you will be sent a contract of publication for your approval. We will edit the book, create the cover, index the book (if necessary), obtain the ISBN number, and arrange the printing and distribution of the book.
 
You can usually expect your book to be in print within one year of our acceptance. You will receive five copies of the your book free of charge and discounts on purchases of additional copies.

 

The below table indicates the approximate timing of the publication process. A publication schedule will be agreed upon between you and CDPublishing.org. Although we sometimes need to deviate from this schedule for reasons beyond our control - and we understand you may have to do so as well - we do try very hard to hold to the agreed schedule.
