Become an Author or Editor

Whether you’d like to create an engaging reader, publish an original manuscript, or develop a hybrid textbook that contains anthologized and original material, we can help. Our talented and passionate acquisitions editors will listen to you and collaborate with you to determine the best publishing strategy and approach for your book – and then our team will assist you every step of the way.

Our editors will provide you with a developmental consultation, author guides and resources, professional feedback, and publishing expertise. They’ll also serve as a built-in support system to address questions, celebrate little victories, and help you navigate the entire publishing process. For a full list of provided resources, check out our Author Resources page.

If you plan to include third-party materials in your book, our in-house licensing team will secure all necessary permissions to republish your selected content. You’ll also receive access to the Cognella Digital Library, which offers authors and editors thousands of pre-cleared readings, case studies, and other materials available at discounted rates. (Before you explore the library, check out these helpful tips to ensure you have the best experience possible.)

We encourage class testing or peer review (dependent upon your project and target audience) so that you have the opportunity to receive real-world feedback and refine your content prior to launch on the national market.

Our marketing team will strategically promote your book to key audiences to increase visibility, create buzz, and encourage adoption.
