I am the Web Editor at Chelsea Green Publishing. We’ve been publishing books about renewable energy technology and sustainable living since 1984, and we’re looking for new authors.
I’m trying to reach out to the green and technology blogging communities to get in touch with writers who are knowledgeable about the green movement, know the latest techniques and technologies for sustainable living, and would enjoy writing a book for us.
We welcome all submissions of course, but to encourage the growth of a community on our own newly launched web site and blog, we’re running a community proposal contest for our Green Guide series of books, which you can check out at the link below.
I’ve posted the contest guidelines on our blog. The best entries will win a publishing contract with Chelsea Green, and a $1000 advance on royalties.
I’m hoping that you, or someone you’re in contact with through your blog, will be interested in submitting a proposal. Please check out the contest guidelines, our new web site, and, if you wouldn’t mind helping us spread the word, reposting our guidelines post (see link below) on your blog.
Feel free to email me with any questions, though contest book proposals should go directly to our Editor-in-Chief, Joni Praded (see contest guidelines for contact info).
Thanks. I appreciate your time.
