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.

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.

Aside from our own website www.packtpub.com, Packt sells through multiple global distribution channels including Amazon, Safari, and Udemy.

This all depends upon the topic you’re writing about 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. Following this it’s all about editing and getting the final versions ready.

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.
