You have conceived an idea about a book and now want to get down to the important part of putting your ideas on paper and finally getting your book published through Book Circle. However, you do not know how to proceed further. In this section, we will answer all your queries on different stages of book production.
You can start by submitting Preface, sample chapters and the content of the book to facilitate our editorial team to evaluate your book.
Once the preliminary evaluation process is over, we will enter into an agreement and complete the legal formalities, where after we would like you to send in your complete manuscript in digital files for further evaluation at our end. When your manuscript arrives at Book Circle, it will be assigned to a specialist editor corresponding with your subject.
