Thanks to the electronic revolution, you can present your ideas to mental health professionals and students throughout the entire world and download the work of others at no cost. FREE.
The International Psychotherapy Institute (IPI), which was established, by Jill and David Scharff in 1994 is organizing an e-book publishing division. As a publisher with 40 years of experience in acquiring, producing and marketing books in psychotherapy, psychiatry and psychoanalysis, I am coming out of retirement to head this e-publishing venture. The Scharffs, experienced editors and authors, will call upon respected colleagues to form the editorial board.
E-books offer great financial savings. There are no costs for paper, printing, binding, jackets, warehousing, shipping, and selling, to bookstores. We will bear the cost of selecting manuscripts, copyediting and digital production. The author will agree to receive no royalties. E-books can be downloaded to iPads, iPhones, Kindles and other electronic devices at no cost to the reader. These e-books and videos will reach a broader audience than could ever have been imagined in the past.
Publishers of print materials require a book to be 200 to 400 pages in order to put a price high enough to cover the overhead. The e-book makes that unnecessary. An e-book can be 200 to 400 pages, but it can also be 20, or 75 pages. This wonderful flexibility gives you great freedom in presenting your work to the therapy community, FREE.
If you have a new manuscript, we’d like to see it. If you have a few lectures you’d like to have published to this massive audience, send them to us. If you have a book that’s now out of print and the rights have been returned to you, we’d like to see that too.
