Have you always dreamt of publishing your own book? We are thrilled to announce the launch of Sweek Publishing in India as over 150,000 users of the reading community at Sweek are from India. That’s right, you can now publish your own book (paperback/e-book) through Amazon, Flipkart and other sales channels.
Sweek Publishing is already live in Europe and thousands of books have been successfully published so we can’t wait to see how many books our Indian writers are about to publish! Read on to learn more about how Sweek Publishing works in India.
So why self-publish your book with Sweek Publishing and not any other platform?
Firstly, it’s free, unlike other self-publishing platforms in India. During the entire process, you only have to pay for an ISBN. Sweek provides you with an ISBN for ₹999. An ISBN (International Standard Business Number) is required if you want to sell your book on sales channels such as Amazon, Flipkart, Google Play Store, Kindle, etc. However, if you want to sell it on the Sweek webshop or on your own site, an ISBN is not required.
You can write and publish on just about anything! Is it a work of fiction? A meme book? A book of quotes or personal anecdotes? A photo book? Whatever you want to write about, we don’t mind. Do you want a matte cover instead of a glossy cover? white paper instead of creamy paper? You also have control over all the specifications of the book.
You earn money per copy sold. Our Indian writers earn an attractive margin of the net sales price. The rest of the money paid by the buyer for your book goes into the printing of the book and a small percentage goes to Sweek Publishing. This means that you can earn a better margin if you are selling an e-book because there are no printing costs involved. Bear in mind that while self-publishing, the writer typically pays the company in order to get their book published. However, this is not the case with Sweek Publishing because we believe that anyone should be able to publish their own book!
We work on a print on demand basis. This means that there is no storage or inventory with your books. The printing of the book begins when someone orders the book. However, you do not have to worry about the delivery of your book because our printing partner has print facilities in Mumbai, Surat and Chennai so we ensure fast delivery within India.
If you want to sell your book to a large audience, we recommend selling your book on Amazon India and on Flipkart. If you want to sell your book worldwide, that is possible as well. Do you want the book just for yourself? As there is no minimum, you can publish just one book or even hundreds, whatever you prefer!
Once you have published your book, selling the book might seem scary. Don’t worry, we have got you covered for the marketing. We have many blog posts explaining different ways to promote and market your book so definitely check them out!
