uses the latest "Print on Demand"
(POD) book publishing technologies to bring back out
of print books, and to publish new books in partnership
with professional authors and publishers.
We specialize in previously published nonfiction. However, we are always
interested in quality material, regardless of genre or prior publication
history. If we can't help you, we're happy to refer you to others who
may be interested.
Previously published books have the advantage of prior "vetting"
(review, acceptance, editing, etc.) by the original publisher.
Naturally, new works do not. For this reason, acceptance of
previously unpublished manuscripts by UP is limited, and most are
short nonfiction works with a clearly identifiable audience.
We expect our authors to be actively involved in the promotion and
marketing of their books, and our terms favor those who are.
While UP has broad distribution in mainstream publishing industry
channels, we emphasize sales made at live events, author Web sites,
and in specialty markets beyond bookstores and libraries, where
the direct involvement of authors is crucial.
UP does not publish vanity press or hate material of any kind,
nor books with expensive or novelty production requirements,
such as large-format "coffee table" photo books, pop-ups, CDs, etc.
We specialize in mainstream 6x9" trade paperbacks and hardbacks,
with full-color covers and B&W interiors.
public speakers enjoy extra benefits, as well as books by
scholars, experts, coaches and others with broad exposure
to the public.
