At Vertical Editions, we are always on the lookout for new authors. We consider book ideas – biographies, autobiographies, illustrated histories, club histories and events – from all areas of sport. Our authors come from differing backgrounds – some are professional athletes, others are journalists but many are simply enthusiastic fans who have an interesting idea and can write a good story others will enjoy reading.If you believe you have a good idea for a book, please send us a proposal and we'll get back to you to let you know if we think we can publish it. Your proposal should contain:1. A description of the book's subject matter and content.2. Your anticipated word count for the entire book.3. Details of any photographs and illustrations you have that can be used in the book.4.
