  2. Dear Ma’am / Sir :
    I am currently writing a book entitled THE PHILOSOPHICAL DOCTOR OF MEDICINE but I am still in the process of editing and elaborating the many citations I acknowledged from other authors. I am planning to look for publishers on October 2018. May I inquire if you are accepting prospective manuscripts for editing and possible publication. My market are the medical students, doctors, nurses, and other health professionals. Do you have guidelines for possible commitment with your publishing company? Thanks in advance.
