Publish A Book

The process of publishing a book requires several stages, beginning with a manuscript review. At this time Ian Randle Publishers does not accept unsolicited manuscripts. Instead, we ask our prospective authors and those wishing to use our publishing services, to complete the Author Questionnaire below and one our representatives will contact you.

NOTE: We receive many submissions on a daily basis. So, please be patient in awaiting our response.
