Want to be the author of a geology book?

Author Sought

I have received the following from Alison Brown, Commissioning Editor for the Crowood Press:-

Dear Mr Churchard,

Please allow me to introduce myself as the Commissioning Editor at The Crowood Press with responsibility for the geology list of books.  We publish the best-selling book ‘ The Geology of Britain – An Introduction’ by Peter Toghill.

We are looking to commission some new regional geology titles for the list and one of these is ‘Geology of the West Country’.

I note that you have a blog ‘Geology in the West Country’ and so I wondered if you might possibly be able to suggest some suitable people for me to approach to write this.

We are looking for 40,000-50,000 words and 150-250 illustrations/photographs. The target audience is people with an interest in geology, including undergraduates, but we would not target the book specifically at the academic market.

I am happy to work with any potential authors to develop the scope of the content.

I would be very grateful for any assistance you could provide.

Yours sincerely



A visit to their web site shows that they have published lots of books including geological ones.

If you are interested contact them directly mentioning this blog. And let me know how you got on!
