Hello Vince and welcome to Scribus,

There is no way to "import" a publisher file into Scribus. I don't think 
there is a way to do that in other DTP apps as well, AFAIK.

You'll have to extract your text from the Publisher file and "get text" 
from within Scribus to rearrange your book. I suggest you make all heavy 
editing in a word processor before putting this text into Scribus as the 
editing capabilities are rather short, from the wp point of view.

Don't hesitate to ask your questions here but, please browse the 
archives to see whether the answer is already there.

The list is very reactive and users and devels will do their best to get 
you going.
