Savant Books and Publications seeks previously-unpublished literary works of enduring value with a twist that expand and transform English readers' point-of-view throughout the world. Special interest areas include:

* FICTION ("novels" - all genres, but especially historical or historically correct novels, and novels based on author experience)

* NON-FICTION (memoirs; academic theses and dissertations of note rewritten for the general public; single-author textbooks and workbooks, especially those involving or invoking transformational learning)

No gratuitous sex or violence. No cookbooks or picture books except children's books in our COLOR-ME-PLEASE series.

We do not accept hard-copy or email submissions, although email queries are fine.
