I am a publisher of books, and am proposing to publish a book about the late
trumpeter Humphrey Lyttelton who died recently aged 86. Although it may
sound a bit premature to do this, I don't expect the book to actually be
published until December 2008/January2009 and with this in mind I am looking
for suitable contributors who could be commission to write a chapter of
around 10,000 words for the proposed book.
I am really looking for an American perspective on the trumpeter, and anyone
who knew him as a child or in his early twenties would also be helpful.
Hints and suggestions would be interesting too as I am in the early stage of
researching this book.
I propose to contract those who are commissioned professionally and so that
there is no problems affecting fees etc., I am prepared to pay fees in full
in advance so long as a third party can hold the funds until the commission
has been duly completed. I would also want a condition in any contract to
the effect that writer will take part in promoting the publication should
the he/she be asked.
I'd be grateful for any information you can supply, and what you may do to
help promote this book in advance of publication when the time comes. I
believe this publication will attract the attention of many, and to that end
advanced orders can be catered for and arranged.
I look forward to hearing from you.
