For Authors

We are always happy to hear from authors or editors who are considering writing a new book. We publish in nursing, health and social care, and our books are generally clear and concise textbooks for undergraduates. However, we also have some books at post-graduate and post-registration level, and we will consider all proposals in the field if we think they fit with our list and we can do justice to them.

Why publish with Lantern? 

Lantern provides authors with:

  • individual attention throughout the writing period - the personal attention that only a small committed and knowledgeable team can provide
  • rapid publication - typically four months from receipt of manuscript to publication
  • high quality production - we take real pride in our products and understand the value in striving for perfection
  • experience - the Lantern team have spent 25+ years developing, producing, selling nursing, health and social care books for the UK and worldwide market
