Finding the best book distributor in India

Apr 3rd 2014 at 3:17 AM

The art of writing comes only to those who have pens mightier than swords. Creative thoughts flow through powerful words and make for excellent reads. However, a majority of fabulous writings barely reach the wider world. To give unknown talent a global platform, several publishers today are coming up with attractive and affordable packages that include editing, printing and marketing services for authors.

Publishers conduct contests as well as complimentary readings of drafts to identify budding talent. However, it is important for authors to find the appropriate publisher to suit their requirements. For instance, some publishers concentrate only on education and publish and distribute works of such authors, while some others prefer publishing and distributing only romance novels. Hence, conduct background checks and inquire about the publishing strategies of publishing houses of your choice before sending out your manuscript.

You may consider India's leading book distributors companies as your publisher. But, remember there is a price involved in the business. Hence, when looking at leading book distributors in India, also compare the costs of their publishing and distributing packages. This again largely depends on your literary piece. For instance, if it is a children’s book that you have authored, then you can look for a good deal in print publication. However, if it is a work of science-fiction, you can look for a publishing combination of print and e-book versions. All leading book distributers in India have websites that carry information about their printing and distribution packages and their respective costs. They also have the publishing guidelines mentioned. It is important that you read these guidelines thoroughly to understand if the publisher of your choice will be interested in printing a book in the genre you have written.

Once you have chosen a book publisher and distributor, create a publishing plan. Decide on the format or formats of publishing, list your target readers and be clear if you require any art work along with the text. Also, ensure you know the cost price of your book and how many copies you would like to publish in the first run. Meet the publisher with this plan on hand, along with an abstract and copy of your manuscript in the format as required by the publishing company. Ensure your manuscript is error-free before giving a copy to the publisher. Understand that a publisher receives hundreds of manuscripts every month. It is only the interesting ones that catch the eye. Hence, make note that when you meet the publisher you can clearly inform your genre of writing. Understand that if a publisher likes your work, you will need to spend long hours with the editing and designing team to give a commercial life to your literary piece of art.


Once the deal is struck, discuss the distribution pattern and set targets to reach out your work in a wider market. Decide on the price and the royalty you will earn with the sale of each book. Meticulous planning can help you publish and distribute an award-winning book with ease.
