Publishing Process

Written a book? Thinking of publishing it? Congratulations. You have completed half the way of being an author. We at Authors’ Ink Publications pledge to make the rest of your path, a cakewalk. As a general case, the authors who have already written a book don’t know the essentials to publish a book. The success of the book is in the hands of the author. The essentials of publishing are the basic steps that most authors miss and hence end up not showing the best from their book.

The basic steps for the realization of dreams with Authors’ Ink Publications are:

There are two styles to publish a book namely “Self-Publishing” and “Traditional Publishing”. Authors’ Ink Publications publish both styles with equal dedication and support.
  • Self Publishing
  • In this style, the writer of the books pay to produce, market, distribute and warehouse the book. ┬áThis includes all the processes i.e. printing, editing, cover designing, marketing, distributing etc. The advantage of this style is the profits earned from the book is higher as compared to traditional publishing

    This style of publishing is best suited for the already established authors with a large fan base and also for those with a time-sensitive manuscript.

  • Traditional Publishing
  • This style is more popular in India and most of the books are published traditionally. In this style, the writer just has to pay a onetime security (refundable) to the publisher and other nominal costs (if any). The rest of the expenses are paid by the publisher itself and the writer does not face the quick movement of finances in the whole publishing process. The royalty is low as compared to the Self Publishing style.

    This style of publishing is best suited for the newcomers in this industry and also the authors which do not have a very large fan base behind their name.
