      The Ultimate Garden

      <http://www.ultimatebooks.com>www.ultimatebooks.com

      Deadline: September 30, 2008

      Health Communications (<http://www.hcibooks.com/>HCI Books) published the
      phenomenal <http://www.hci-online.com/c-3-chicken-soup-books.aspx>Chicken
      Soup for the Soul® series for 15 years, from its debut in 1993 until July
      2008, when a new direction for the Chicken Soup brand was chosen by its
      creators, Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen.HCI Books continues to be
      the publisher, and your trusted source, for all of the Chicken Soup for the
      Soul titles released through July 2008 but no longer publishes new titles
      in that series.

      With so many talented writers to be enjoyed, and so many avid readers, many
      of whom are fans of the Chicken Soup format, we chose to continue—but
      improve upon—the tradition. In the ULTIMATE series we continue to nurture
      the rich textures of the story-telling format, but offer another treat for
      the senses—stunning full-color photography.

      And, that’s not all.

      HCI never strays far from our roots as the #1 Self-Help Publisher
      (Publishers Weekly). We know our readers thirst for knowledge. To give
      readers the ULTIMATE experience we added more to the format; Words of
      Advice— short bits of practical wisdom, and Must-Know Info—experts writing
      on single topics relevant to each book’s theme. (less than 200 words)

      Our goal for every ULTIMATE book is to be a one-stop source for inspiration
      and information—for readers interested in a topic and shoppers looking for
      a perfect gift for friends and family. The ULTIMATE series is also a
      showcase for the talent and creativity of writers, photographers, and
      experts who desire to build their portfolio and enhance their platform with
      HCI Books, a publisher that has been the home of dozens of New York Times,
      USA Today and national bestselling books since it was founded by Peter
      Vegso and Gary Seidler in 1978.

      The Ultimate series will reprint previously publishing material as long as
      the rights are not under exclusive license with another publisher. They buy
      non-exclusive rights.

      Our current rates of compensation are:
      $200 per story (500-1500 words) $50 per "words of advice" (less than 200
      words) $200 per interior full-page (1725 x 2666 px at 300 dpi) photo $100
      per interior half-page photo $50 per interior quarter-page photo $25 per
      interior eighth-page photo
