Want to get published? I can help you with that.

Well, not if it’s your sword-and-sorcery fantasy novel or revisionist archives romance novel. I can’t help you there.

But if you want to write a book on archives, libraries, cultural heritage organizations, or information science, I can help you. I’ve recently starting working with the delightful people at Neal-Schuman Publishers to help identify new authors and books for them in any of these areas. I’m actively looking for people to submit proposals for books on:

  • electronic records
  • preservation
  • records management and Web 2.0
  • introduction to library, archive and museum practice
  • case studies in archives management
  • planning for commemorations and anniversaries
  • outreach to K-12 audiences
  • how archives, libraries and special collections can meet the needs of genealogists and family historians

So if you want to discuss writing a book on one of these topics, or anything that relates to archives, libraries, museums, or information science, let me know. You can reach me at info@archivesnext.com.

Don’t let the thought of writing a book intimidate you. I had no experience writing anything longer than a blog post for publication when I signed a contract to write my first book. I can discuss the process with you and answer your questions, and hopefully identify a viable topic. I know a lot of people who had “work on a publication” on their list of resolutions for this year, so this is your chance. Think about what you want to write and get in touch.

  1. Nice! There are a lot of sharp folks out there that need a little push or pull from the real deal.

  2. Just wanted to let you know I finished your Web 2.0 Tools book. Pretty awesome. Lots of really cool ideas. I did a little write-up about it. 🙂
