There are several reasons to consider publishing a book with BEP. You could use such a book in your teaching. The book can enhance your consulting practice. It would give you an easy “underlined item” on your vita.  You earn royalties. BEP generates substantial sales to business and higher education libraries.  There are some 7000 such libraries worldwide.   Prices paid for library sales are substantial, yielding significant royalties.  

Suitable material for the executive teaching and training market segment is sparse. Most educators rely on extracts from textbooks, articles, readings, and cases, typically bound as custom packets. The best teachers often distribute some of their own work in these custom packets. If you have your own “teaching notes” or PowerPoint presentations, these can serve as the starting point for a short book.

As the collection editors for international business, we will review your proposal and offer feedback on your manuscript prior to approving it for production. Professional copy editors help you polish the manuscript. BEP uses a 120-day production timeline from start to printed book in-stock.

Business Expert Press is headed by David Parker, the former editor-in-chief for business publishing at Pearson Education. David published more than 10 successful first editions with Pearson. At BEP, David has published more than 170 books with leading authors in many fields of business.

Converting your expertise into a short focused book for the business education market would be a valuable contribution. If you have an idea for a book that would fit this business model, please contact  us via email. We look forward to discussing this opportunity with you.
