Publishing

At Sineli Books we are offer a paradigm with two options: Peer-Reviewed Publishing or Self Publishing. Although our focus is on academic books, we will gladly consider fiction, biographies and religious manuscripts

Peer-reviewed Publishing

An academic who has a good thesis or research manuscript may submit it for assessment. If considered publishable, the manuscript will be peer-reviewed. If the assessment is positive, SineliBooks will publish the book at no cost to the author and on agreed publication terms which will include copyright and profit sharing. Our experts will work with the author on moving from manuscript to print, including editing, layout and cover design.

Self-Publishing

We can publish a manuscript without review but the author bears the publication costs. Authors may submit print-ready manuscripts prepared in accordance with free guidelines provided by SineliBooks, or use our expertise from editing to cover design at competitive costs. When the manuscript is submitted in print-ready form, the author only pays token costs for uploading, review, and a sample copy, holds the copyright, and shares in the sales profit. The same applies to an author who has used our internal editing services. We welcome manuscripts on research in any field, fiction, religion.

Print Options

We offer a very wide range of options which include

  • Cutting-Edge quality and durability that is indistinguishable
    from traditionally published books: inside out.

About Us

Our Mission

One of the main problems with traditional publishing is the expense of production. Apart from the high cost of moving from manuscript to print-ready, printers require a minimum number of copies per batch run often in thousands which for the publisher may mean thousands of unsold copies. This explains why publishers tend to favour books they know will sell and patronize only authors who have already made name, with few opportunities for the next up-and-coming generation of researchers and authors . We have developed a print-on-demand strategy which means that, once the proof is approved by the author, books are printed only when sellers place an order for as few as one copy, and we patronize a world renowned printer who can get this done in just a few days and, if requested by the seller, orders are dispatched directly to the buyer within days. The title will be distributed to our worldwide outlets which include Amazon and world-renowned booksellers like Barnes and Noble, Blackwell,  library catalogues, etc.

Our Strategy

There is almost no room for new authors in the traditional  book publishing business. Because  getting a book from manuscript to print is expensive and  the risk of  potential  sales are high, most publishers  tend to favour well established or celebrity authors. Our mission is to create room for new and promising authors by deploying new and  innovative technologies to create affordable publishing portfolios. Our prime focus is to democratize  and help young academics  who have produced publishable theses or research manuscripts to enhance dissemination of  their works to the academic world. To this end we are offering a paradigm with two options: Peer-Reviewed Publishing or Self Publishing. Although    our focus is on academic books, we will gladly consider fiction, biographies and religious manuscripts.
