Find all the information you need to get your book published at UC Press. If you are thinking about publishing with us, please read our book proposal guidelines and find out more about our acquisitions editors.

For Our Current Authors

Access the form that will walk you through the process of preparing your book for production. This form must be completed and returned, along with your manuscript (disk and identical printout), illustrations, and permissions before UC Press can begin production of your book.

Once you've submitted your manuscript, it is time to think about marketing your book and what you can be doing to promote your title. We've prepared an easy-to-understand Author Toolkit to help get you started marketing your work.
