Promise not to laugh?

  1. Jan 20, 2009 #1
    Ok, so I did a 4-part lecture series last quarter and want to publish the transcripts of the lectures in a book. Only, I haven't the foggiest idea as to how book publishing works. I took my notes for one lecture, transcribed them into a sample chapter and am reviewing it now.

    Think this is something I should run by my department head first? Which direction should I head if I've only just typed up a sample chapter?

    Without a doubt. It's just good politics if nothing else.

    Besides your department head might give you the best advice on how to proceed.

    I think you should fully go for it!
