Thank you for your interest in publishing with Galilee.

During the writing and submission process, authors assign a provisional title to their manuscript, capturing its essence or key theme. If applicable, a subtitle may accompany the title to offer additional context or information.

  1. Purpose: The provisional title serves as a placeholder for the eventual, finalized title. It helps authors and publishers refer to the manuscript during development. The subtitle, if included, offers a chance to provide further clarity or intrigue regarding the book's subject matter.
  2. Considerations: Authors often revisit and refine the provisional title as the manuscript evolves. The final title may be determined later in the publishing process, sometimes collaboratively with the publisher's input.

As an additional service, Galilee offers a range of professional support to elevate your manuscript to its highest potential. Upon request, we provide editorial services, style writing, translation, ghostwriting, and more. Our expert team is dedicated to refining your work and ensuring it resonates with readers, transforming your manuscript into a potential bestseller.

At Galilee, we understand the importance of a compelling cover design in capturing the essence of your book. Authors have the option to submit their own cover art or work with one of our industry-leading, talented cover artists. Galilee will present three unique cover art concepts for the author to choose from. If the author is not satisfied with the initial options, they can opt for an additional round of three new concepts, which will incur an extra cost. This process can be repeated as needed until the perfect cover is achieved, ensuring that the final design aligns with the author's vision and resonates with readers.

One of the most crucial elements of your book, second only to the cover art, is the blurb on the back cover. This 300-word summary serves as a powerful tool to captivate potential readers and entice them to explore your book further. We understand that crafting the perfect blurb can be challenging, but don’t worry—our experts are here to help. When you submit your blurb, our team will enhance and refine it to ensure it grabs attention and makes readers eager to discover what your book is all about. Let us help you create a compelling back cover that draws readers in and makes them want to read more.

  • Traditional Publishing: Publisher-driven, with the publisher covering costs, retaining rights, and providing distribution.
  • Co-Publishing: A shared model with both author and publisher sharing costs, rights, and profits, offering more author control than traditional publishing.
  • Self-Publishing: Author-driven, with the author retaining all rights and profits, but also bearing all costs and responsibilities for the publishing process.

Galilee operates a self-publishing imprint, Galilee Press, in collaboration with Author Solutions. Please refer below for additional details on the process of self-publishing your book.

Unless your contract says otherwise, as the author, you are responsible for obtaining permission and paying any fees to use any third-party copyright material that your book and supporting website resources contain. So, it’s worth getting a sense now of any third-party copyright material that you’re likely to need.

If you are an editor, you will need to ensure that your contributors understand the requirements in these guidelines and provide proof of permission obtained at the same time they send you their contribution.

Press’s Commissioning Editors decide what we publish. They travel internationally to meet current and prospective authors and editors to discuss new publications or business projects. And they help authors turn great ideas into great books.
