Writing with Packt

So you want to write a tech book but you don’t know where to begin. Founded in 2004, Packt’s mission is to help the world put software to work in new ways. Working towards that vision, we have published over 8,000 books and videos, providing developers with the actionable knowledge they need to innovate and deliver software solutions. We’ll provide the help you need to take you from a blank page to a market-leading technical book in the hands of thousands of developers across the globe.

Let’s face facts – you could always choose to publish a book on your own using LeanPub or Amazon. If you’re a well known authority on a subject with influence then self-publishing can make sense but most developers lack the reach and marketing budgets to truly deliver a breakout title. Packt are able to deliver paid marketing campaigns into channels like Amazon and Google, with global reach into over 30 channel partners and over a million direct customers.

Moreover, actually writing a technical book isn’t as easy as it looks and going through the whole process without a team of professional editors and technical reviewers to peer review your work you can be arduous at best and disastrous at worst. This is where we come in. We make the process of writing a book easy for you, taking away the painful parts of publishing so you can focus on doing what you do best.

Author Testimonials

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.

I appreciate writing with Packt Publishing. They are passionate about their desire to help people learn and to empower authors to reach their audiences. They offer a great system that enables them to be at the top of the list on countless technical topics. Their service feels like an elaborate support system for authors. Personally, I feel that the best way to learn is to teach something, and so I team up with other authors, and we all learn more together, specifically about Cloud Architecture. At Packt, they have a strong understanding of the business, and they have built a valuable process for authors to plug into. After working with the Packt editors and team, it made me want to collaborate with them on more projects… which is what I did.

Working with the great people at Packt has been a pleasure. All interactions have been professional and constructive. This includes the publishing process since acquisition, and later the great help I received from the editors, the project manager and the reviewers. The end result is a book that's much better than I could have written alone. I highly recommend working with Packt for your next book!
