Walking Tree Publisher offer their authors the following services:
Critical evaluation of the submitted typescript by the series editors.
If this primary evaluation is positive, the typescript is passed on to one of the internationally acknowledged Tolkien experts who serve as peer-reviewers for WTP (see the list of our Board of Academic Advisors) and to one of our general readers (commenting on the "readability" of the study from an informed lay-person perspective). These readers/reviewers assess the typescript and provide a detailed feedback and comments. These comments and suggestions are passed on to the author in anonymised form and s/he, together with the series editors, decide on the necessary revisions and changes.
The author and WTP, upon successfully completing the reviewing process, sign a contract regulating the copyright etc.
WTP proofreads the revised typescript and creates a professional layout using InDesign.
WTP provides, in agreement with the author and in co-operation with acknowledged visual artists, a suitable (custom-made) cover-illustration and cover-layout.
The author receives a free copy of his/her book and the right to purchase further copies at a reduced price.
WTP take care of an appropriate distribution of the book in Europe and the USA.
WTP offer the books at an attractive and competitive price.
