Guidelines for Prospective Authors
Praeclarus Press is a new small press founded by Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, Ph.D., IBCLC, FAPA, a health
psychologist and board-certified lactation consultant, with more than 18 years of experience as both an author
and editor. Praeclarus is the Latin word for “excellent.”
Praeclarus Press publishes books in women’s health. We are interested in titles on women’s health throughout the
lifespan including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and parenting. We are also interested in titles on
depression, trauma and violence, cardiovascular health, successful aging, and alternative healthcare modalities.
Books we publish are evidence-based, but written in an accessible, user-friendly style.
If you have an idea for a book, we would love to talk with you about it. If your idea is promising, we will ask you for
a full book proposal. Please see our handout, How to Write a Book Proposal, for more specific instructions on
what you will need to do next. We are always looking for interesting book ideas. Our next great book could be yours!
