So you've written a book ...
Janus is to give first-time authors a chance recognising the difficulties new authors face
If you're a first-time author, then only one thing distinguishes you from a professional author. It's not talent. It's not dedication. It's simply that first-time writers will have difficulties in getting their manuscripts published.
Why? It's precisely because you are an unknown author that the vast majority of publishers are not interested in your work. Now, in the increasingly account-driven world of publishing, there are only two certainties: guaranteed best-sellers or guaranteed library and university sales. And books with long-term sales are rarely kept in print, thus losing the author valuable reprint income.
If, as likely, your work is very personal or specialised, then they just don't want to know. And as production costs rise and publishing houses merge into ever-larger multinational businesses, that situation can only get worse. The Janus Approach
At Janus, they look to nurture new and rare talent. That aim has gained them widely recognised reputation as one of the leading co-partnership publishing houses. The strength of the company rests on the satisfaction of its authors and the quality of the books produced.
