Excellence in Publishing for the 21st Century
John Wallace authors come from both solicited and non-solicited sources. Often, potential authors are referred and recruited to us by current authors, professional and other sources. We welcome your manuscript submission.
The acquisitions editor for your project will conduct research to identify market needs, come up with a concept and discuss sales potential and marketing needs with the sales department. As the author will be involved in discussion with the publisher at this stage. The publisher presents the project to the Editorial Review Board for financial approval. The publisher will then confirm the concept, features and dimensions of the project.
You will work with the publisher and editor to plan the shape and coverage of the book. The manuscript will need to be written as complete and high a standard as is possible. Draft material is sent to educators/professionals and advisors for comments. The development editor will provide the author with feedback. As a result of feedback received, it will often be necessary for you to re-write material fairly substantially.
The manuscript is copy edited for style and consistency. The artwork brief is prepared by the editor, checked by the author and passed to design. You will need to check that the material fits and works well on each page. Solutions to any over-matter problems will need to be discussed with the editor and designer. You will need to proofread at this stage, give final approval of the material and approve any changes to the material.
