We do not accept books that are self-published or hybrid published.
Self-publication is when an author has sole control of the content without the collaboration of an established publisher to provide editorial review. Hybrid publishing is when the publisher charges the author a fee for their publishing services and the author takes all financial risks for their book.
We rely on publishers to undertake various forms of editorial control that eliminate factual error, potential libellous content and material that may be viewed as counter to law. Editorial processes also ensure that the level of grammar and language which are used in a book is appropriate and relevant for the age level to which the book aimed at. We are not able to appraise each and every book in this detail and are not necessarily qualified to do so in matters of law.
No judgement on the quality of a hybrid published or self-published book is either implied or should be inferred by our position.
We are not able to enter into correspondence about copies sent to libraries and are unable to return any copies to authors.
