Traditional Publishing & Co-Publishing

First Step is to submit your manuscript.

What are our submission requirements?

The manuscript must be your own personal and original work.

Submission of your manuscript preferably by email, or printed on one side in hard copy, with a 12-point font and double-line spacing, with a brief synopsis.

We would need to know the word length. A brief covering letter with details about yourself relevant to your work.

Enclosure of an SSAE (Stamped Self Addressed Envelope) for us to return your manuscript and assessment. Enclosure of payment for the editor’s report. See Assessment Fees for an explanation of our charges.

SUBJECT TO OUR EDITORS' ASSESSMENT OF YOUR WORK Sid Harta Publishers will consider publishing your work in the Traditional Sense and may also offer a Co-Publishing arrangement for works of merit that might have a restricted market.

Once the assessment has been received, the writer has the opportunity to revisit his/her work whilst considering the input offered by the editors. In most cases this leads to re-writing/correcting point of view, a major problem with new authors, and working on structure and character development. If SHP's editors give the work a thumbs up, SHP would contact the author and discuss the publising options depending on what we perceive to be the title's economic viability.

A good manuscript assessment is extremely worthwhile. An objective opinion is imperative; writers should NOT ask friends or relatives to offer an opinion but send their manuscripts to a recognized editor. Sid Harta Publishers provides this service and will not consider manuscripts from unpublished authors unless the SHP editors carry out the assessment as we have not always been impressed with some of the evaluations offered by other agencies.

The Advantage of Co-Publishing over Self Publishing

The major difference between Self Publishing and Co-Publishing being that under the Co-Publishing arrangement, Sid Harta Publishers provides the distribution network, manages the project from line editing, typesetting, proofing, printing, book design, co funds production, provides promotional support including a personalized page for the author's work and bio. Sid Harta can arrange for author launches/talks to promote their title.
The problem with the alternative, Self Publishing, is that this method places the onus for the above entirely on the author and, in consequence, most fail. A good manuscript assessment is extremely worthwhile. An objective opinion is imperative; writers should NOT ask friends or relatives to offer an opinion but send their manuscripts to a recognized editor.
Sid Harta Publishers provides this service and will not consider manuscripts from unpublished authors unless the SHP editors carry out the assessment as we have not always been impressed with some of the evaluations offered by other agencies.
