What We Publish

We are not editors. We expect the author to present manuscripts that have been appropriately proofed for both content and grammatical accuracy. We can recommend qualified readers upon request. YCP reserves the right to review manuscripts to assure quality that meets our standards and to decline publication of works deemed inappropriate to our purpose and/or ability. Books with photographs will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We do not format works that have illustrations or extensive charts. To discuss your project, use the contact button below. Please do not purchase a package until we have accepted your project.
