  8. Media-Based Product Components

    Your Acquiring Editor or Project Manager will review the media components that go with the book you are writing. In some cases, your product may be entirely digital and no book involved, but in most cases today media goes along with a book for a course. You will discuss your role, if any, in the development of the media components of your product. It is important to know what expectations we as a publisher may have for you and for you to be clear with us how you will be able to participate. In most cases, media projects are beyond the scope of the individual author and ultimately end up being developed with various contributors. You may be asked to contribute or just to review the finished materials. Whatever the plan, the key is clear communications and shared idea of the desired outcomes.
