Choosing someone who can guide you through the publishing process can be a daunting and time-consuming proposition.
After all, when you have made that decision, you will be entrusting your creativity to someone with whom you may have had no contact until recently.
Will they understand what you are trying to achieve? Will they be sympathetic to your aspirations and dreams? Will they change your work in ways you don’t want?
A question often asked of us by first-time non-fiction authors is: what knowledge or expertise do you have in my field of interest? Our answer is usually to the effect that “your expertise is in your subject; ours is in book production”.
