How hard is it to write a book? For many people, it's almost like giving birth. You may have written one before, or perhaps are considering writing one in the near future.
A major focus of Linus is: providing high quality course material, including textbooks, readers, case-books, and lab-manuals. We offer the opportunity for you to create a text using [i] your own materials; [ii] published materials from other sources; or [iii] a combination of the two.
Consider the book you've adopted for your course. You may not use a good portion of the book your students bought, and may end up distributing hand-outs and other supplements to the class. All this means time and money: your time and your students' money. Instead, you have the option of taking some of that material—chapters, articles, cases, reports from other scholars—and adding it to your own. Not only this, but our short print-runs allow you to replace that material in a new edition each year.
Once your manuscript is ready, send us a copy. Your editor will review the material and work closely with you to develop the manuscript. We'll provide several cover designs for you to choose from; designs that can best express your vision for the book. We also provide the shortest turnaround time in the industry. Finally, we will market your book to other institutions; using a marketing program that has proven very successful.
A Word on Lab Manuals
Customized lab manuals offer many advantages. High-resolution images, perfectly illustrated graphs, and line art—all can have a big impact. We re-label where necessary and create new illustrations to match your needs.
As we mentioned elsewhere, we handle all the thorny copyright issues. And your students wind up paying half the price for their textbooks.
