We believe that success starts with selectivity. As such, our publishing process has four major components.
Consultation and Evaluation
After submitting a book pitch, we’ll arrange an interview with a prospective author. During this critical meeting, an evaluation will be made to determine the following:
- Does the manuscript reflect Principia’s six core values?
- Would the author be a valuable addition to the Principia Community?
- What would the manuscript require to meet our strict quality and publishing standards?
- What is the target market, and how would the author impact that market?
Authors that are invited to be part of the Principia community will then be directly involved as we go through the publishing process, including editing, custom cover design, interior design, and final proofing.
Successful authors recognize that being a new author is very similar to starting a new business. Now that we have a completed manuscript, we must identify our target market, how we’ll get the product in front of customers, and how we convince them to purchase. We work with each author to help them develop a unique marketing plan.
The concept of the Principia community allows authors to share ideas, experiences, and marketing opportunities. These resources include our annual meetings, web development opportunities, and classes for blog writing and how to use social media. Our community provides encouragement and support as you work your way through this new and exciting chapter in your life.
