Jeff Herman’s Guide – Click Here to View
We wish you success in your finding a publisher. If it turns out Intellect Publishing is not a fit with your project, we still want you to find a home for your work. In that case, we recommend starting with Jeff Herman’s guide to Books publishers as a starting point. You can purchase it here. This excellent resource gives you a list of agents and publishers. Below are listed the major publishers that are still in business (as of today).
Working with John at Intellect on my book, George Wallace: An Enigma, has been a real pleasure. He is very agreeable and considerate of an author’s viewpoint regarding the content and layout of the book. He pays close attention to detail and it has progressed in a timely fashion. Unlike some other publishers I have dealt with, John follows through with marketing that determines success, or failure. I have enjoyed every minute of our association. As George Wallace would say, “Keep on keeping on,” John.
