Textbook Development

We are able to offer advice and practical support in the development of textbook proposals and content, including market research into courses and the competitive landscape.

Your Book Proposal

We are able to support authors in the preparation and presentation of book proposals, including advice on the publication process.


I have written many books and edited three book series, and over the years I have had many editors. Without a doubt Paula Parish is the best editor I have ever worked with. She makes your ideas better, clearer, and more understandable. She is a joy to work with.

R. Edward Freeman — University Professor, The University of Virginia

Paula Parish has the experience, insight and market knowledge to advise on the direction an academic book or series proposal might take, as well as help bring these into a publishable form. She is committed to scholarly quality and understands how to make sure academic writing reaches the widest possible audience. I have found her advice invaluable in my own writing and publishing activity, as have those to whom I have recommended her.
