We are a small publishing house based in the UK. We are looking for writers willing to take on the writing of one or more of our business-related titles. They are 'how-to' type of books. We have 3 titles planned at the moment, but writers are welcome to send us pitches in PM or attachment. Writers will be interviewed and might be picked for the job(s) before the end of the bidding time.
We require the books to be written with a UK audience in mind. Other versions - such as US or Australian - are also planned but will come a year or so after the UK versions. All good English writers are welcome to bid. Please attach some previous sample of your work, or write us a short essay/article on a business-related subject so we can judge the quality of your writing.
We do have some research material ready for a couple of the titles.
You will be required to sign a standard author contract. You will be named as the author of the book. We will require an exclusive license for the universal volume, electronic and serial rights in the English language. We would also want a non-exclusive, worldwide merchandising license. You are welcome to keep and exploit the rights in other languages. The Payment through [url removed, login to view] will be considered your advance on royalties and will only be paid on approval of your final manuscript. Subsequent royalties payments will be either through Paypal or in the form of GBP cheques, subject to payment thresholds being met. Royalties rate will be 20% of net profit for paperbacks, and 40% of net profit for electronic versions.
Only bids of $100 or lower will be considered. We will NOT offer an initial milestone payment. We may offer a milestone payment of 50% on approval of your first draft.
Delivery of the first draft manuscript should be within 6 months, although the precise date can be negotiated. Final manuscript is expected within 9 months. Quicker is better for us, but we would still prefer quality over speed.
It is possible for our chosen authors to become regulars, either as writers or editors, as our workload increase.
Thank you for reading and bidding.
