LATEST FROM MACMILLAN (Macmillan Masters series):

If you have experience of business and management, and think you could write a textbook, then Richard Pettinger would like to hear from you. Richard is series editor for the Macmillan Masters series of school, college and university textbooks, which is seeking new authors. 'We have commissioned some fresh authors to produce new views on what appear, on the face of it, to be quite well trodden areas,' says Richard. 'Now we want to develop the series further, as Macmillan have recently rebranded their education publishing arm under the name of Palgrave. We also want to expand the range of authors as well as titles. These are practical, introductory and easy-to-read books, not weighty academic tomes.' Richard is especially looking for authors to write books on financial management, managing in the EU, and sales management, though he is happy to consider any proposal. The books are targeted at those studying management for the first time, at undergraduate or HND level, and also those doing certificates and diplomas in management, or looking to move into management and supervisory positions for the first time. 'The royalty advances paid are not high, but better than some in this sector,' adds Richard. "There is a broad format to work to. I can provide guidelines, samples and a list of present titles to anyone who might be interested.' Contact: Richard Pettinger at 4 Mulberry Court, Littlestone, Kent TN28 8LZ.
