Dear Colleagues,

I am looking for a faculty member who is interested in writing an International Business Textbook or a Finance textbook.  Or even better, I am looking for a book already written that doesn't yet have a publisher.  Textbook prices are often over $200/student, leading many faculty to limit the use of textbooks and leading students to purchase "alternative" versions:)  After years of frustration, I (and a few other faculty) started a publishing organization to publish free textbooks.

The revenue model is 25% author, 75% publisher split (most publishers are around 15%).  The text will always be available for any student to read and any professor to use in their courses free of charge. Or, professors can choose to have the students pay $20 per semester for enhanced services (automatic grading, highlighting features, grade book, test bank, rearranging chapters/text, etc.).  We believe this model will not only benefit students in both developed and developing countries, but will also provide increased revenues for authors.

To see an example of a recent publication, see  The book has only been out for a month and already has over 20 universities who have adopted it.  If you would like to partner in revolutionizing the textbook industry and fixing the high cost, please contact me.  We are initially focusing on introductory books, but we are also open to more specialized textbooks as well.
