I've been writing scientific publications, blogs, youtube videos and other material for years but it really makes a difference if you get professional editors and technical reviews on your material. The team at Packt is very professional.
The book writing process was an inspirational adventure. It gave me the opportunity to work with Miško Hevery. The team at Packt helped me to express my expertise in a well structured manner and make it accessible to anyone willing to start using Angular.
If you know tech, we’re confident that we’ll be a perfect fit. Here are the benefits of working with us:
We have our own development platforms that make producing content easy. These platforms also help you to collaborate with your editor in a way that is creative, fun and efficient.
We’ve worked with thousands of tech experts since 2004, which means you’ll be in good company. All our authors – past and present – share your love and enthusiasm for technology.
We have readers in countries as diverse as the U.S, Thailand and Brazil. Using multiple channels, from direct marketing to Amazon and Safari, we can ensure that your work reaches the global developer community.
Our royalties are generous for the industry. This means that not only will you be making an impact in your field, you’ll also be earning cash.
We’ve learned a lot about publishing and technology. We bring that experience into how we develop, produce and distribute your work. That means you can trust us to do what’s best.
4000+ books published
Packt is one of the most prolific and fast-growing tech book publishers in the world.
Originally focused on open source software, Packt pays a royalty on relevant books directly to open source projects. These projects have received over $400,000 as part of Packt’s Open Source Royalty Scheme to date.
At Packt we have a Hot Topic list that we update every month. If you use the author application form on this site and the skills you state are a direct match with any of our hot topics, you can automatically apply to be the author for that title. At the same time, we welcome authors who have their own ideas, and you can submit them using the same form as well.
This all depends upon the type of content you create, but our editorial project teams always work closely with authors to determine their project schedules. For books, we’ve seen authors of all experience levels take around 3 to 4 months to complete writing their first draft - post that it’s all about editing and getting the final versions ready.
Aside from our own website www.packtpub.com, Packt sells through multiple global distribution channels including Amazon, Safari, and Udemy.
Packt has published hundreds of books and videos created by individual authors. We also welcome any collaboration suggestions as we’ve got plenty of experience of multiple authorship as well.
Packt offers some of the most competitive royalty rates available in the industry, including advances. Make an application today and we’ll be in contact to discuss these rates further.
Packt has a full editorial team including development editors, technical editors, proof readers & project managers. We also use a bespoke content development platform to make collaboration simpler and more efficient.
“Young developers today don’t need an advice. I think they are doing things right. They are willing to learn, explore and experiment. They have fewer inhibitions, are more confident and are willing to go all out. Good luck is all that I would like to say to them.”
Web developer, IBM
“Don’t go into the gaming industry just because you think it’ll be ‘fun.’ It *can* be fun, but so can working on business systems! Choose a position based on the technology and the team members that you will work with, not the salary or the industry.”
Web developer, Episerver
“I would say to a new developer that writing a book and getting known for what you do is not that hard, you just need to get started and write about what you are passionate about.”
