I am an acquisitions editor at Praeger Publishing (www.praeger.com). I am interested in developing a book on the small house movement, and am seeking an author for same. The book would examine the origins of the movement, how widespread it is, its broader environmental and social goals, etc… This would not be a how-to book but would provide a serious discussion and analysis of this phenomenon.
If you know of anyone–or more than one person–I might get into contact with about such a book project, please get back to me with their name and contact information. (If you do not feel comfortable giving out contact info, have them get in touch with me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.
