Health Professions Press has created an online guide for current authors and editors of HPP titles to help you prepare your manuscript and understand the production process for your book, from the book’s “launch” meeting to its printing and binding.
Contact your editor at HPP by calling 410-337-9585 x180, faxing 410-337-8539, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions about marketing your book? Email email@example.com.
Have you created a website based around your book or product? Tell us about it! We can cross-promote on HPP’s website and in social media. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please refer to our Submission Guidelines.

Although an annotated table of contents and completed Publication Questionnaire are the only materials we must have to begin evaluating your proposal, we encourage you to provide as much information about your book as you’d like, including selections from the manuscript in progress. To assist you in preparing your materials for submission, we have provided the following list of questions and guidelines:
Submit your proposal and any supporting materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.

When your proposal arrives, a member of the Editorial Committee will write to acknowledge receipt. Your project will then be assigned to an editor, who begins the review process.
The editors in our Acquisitions Department carefully consider every submission; this individualized evaluation of your materials includes both an internal review by the editor assigned to your project with input from the editor’s departmental colleagues and peer reviews by experts in the field. Occasionally we request additional materials or revision of submitted materials based on reviewer recommendations. Because our review process is comprehensive, you may not hear from us for up to three months after we acknowledge receipt of your proposal.
If you have questions about your proposal, please feel free to contact the Acquisitions Department by emailing email@example.com.
