It's All About... the Process

Posted on January 29 by duncan

While it’s true that the central figure behind any book is the author, there are many hands that contribute to the publication of the book. Each title requires a human touch at every stage of its publication, concepts are presented, editors edit, designers design, marketers market to the myriad of markets, manuscripts get rescripted, data is scrubbed and sent every which way to wholesalers, libraries, online and offline. And that’s just one title. Dundurn on average publishes two titles a week, and the lifespan of a title before the actual publication can be years.
