Book Development

What We Do

Book development, also called book production or book packaging, has been a common part of the publishing world since the 1990s. In collaboration with a publisher, we perform all the tasks of a publisher—developing a book idea, hiring writers, and editing text—except the final stages of printing, distributing, and marketing. Because we are sometimes a silent partner with a publisher, our name does not always appear on the books we develop and produce. We commonly work on multiauthor and university-related books, such as critical anthologies, encyclopedias, and reference books.
