Now may be as good a time as any: publisher Chelsea Green, home to authors ranging from Daily Kos‘ Markos Moulitsas to our own Lee Welles, is looking for proposals for its Green Guide series, and has launched a contest to find them. The winner of their Green Guide Contest will receive a publishing contract, and a $1000 advance against royalties.
There’s no time to waste on this one, though: the deadline for entering is July 4… “in honor of the local, independent communities we hope the Green Guides will help create—free from the domination of fossil fuels, global warming, and toxic pollution.” By that time, you will need to put together a regular book proposal… overview, table of contents, and sample chapters… the works. CG spells it all out on the contest announcement.
I’d love to get something together myself, but don’t see it happening by Independence Day. If you’ve got something in the works, though, send it to them… and let us know about it!
