Author Assisted Financial  Development

PM Books and PM Library are financed through Author Assisted
Financial Develop
; a program where the author with the publisher's
assistance raises the initial production costs.  This approach to raising
money for artistic and intellectual projects is used in publishing, film
making, theater and many other artistic and intellectual efforts and is
indeed an important way to get projects funded.  Through pre-sold
copies of the book; fund raising through friends, associates,
supporters, professional institutions, and the public, the needed
finances can be raised to offset the cost of publishing. The author and
publisher assists in this program through a special program.  Money
generated is placed in an author account set up for the distribution of
funds.  Initial publication costs are dependent on the length of the
book and preparation of the manuscript and are defined in the
Statement of Agreement between author and publisher.  For a more
detailed description of this process please follow up with an email

Professional publications

Professional publications may be supported by institutions,
foundations, granting agencies, and professional organizations as a
means of assisting the professional development of the author and the
institution.  Authors should contact the institution they are affiliated
with and inquire regarding support for their project.  This publisher can
give the supporting agency full documentation on the nature of the
publication and the promotional efforts around the publication.  Text
books can be developed through this program and costs can be kept
