In the last 5 years, we had witnessed a rapid growth in the Publishing Industry in India. According to experts, it’s the increasing number of Self-Publishing Companies, which constitutes a larger share in the growth of Indian Publishing Industry. But do these Self-Publishing Companies fulfill the needs of the Authors and are these Self-Published Authors happy with their Publishing Houses? Why are these Self-Publishing Companies miserably failing to earn the Goodwill of their Authors, who spends huge sum of money for getting published is the real question!
NORTH SOUTH BLOCK which is an Online Editorial and a venture of SANCHAR TIMES MEDIA GROUP – A Print Magazine Publishing Company, took a deep dip into these questions and came out with some very interesting and shocking facts!
The reasons why these Self-Publishing Companies, which are growing rapidly but yet completely failing to stand up to the expectations of their Authors are actually very simple. As they say, “Over Commitment with Under Delivery is too Dangerous!” we can say that same is the reason for the downfall in the Goodwill of Self-Publishing Companies.
Recently, while examining this matter, NORTH SOUTH BLOCK had talked to many experts of the Publishing Field and they all pointed out a few really valid points about the failures of Self-Publishing Companies in standing up to the expectations of their Authors. Some of the points were common in the statements of these experts while some unique points also came out.
So, here we present you with a list of points, explaining how these Self-Publishing Companies indeed failed their Authors and left them to sink into the deep sea of struggle.
• Firstly, they charge a huge sum of money for Book-Publishing and fails badly to return the Compensating-Royalty to their Authors.
• Then after, most of the Self-Publishing Companies makes no efforts at all for their Authors’ Book-Marketing since don’t have any intentions to carry out marketing for their Authors.
• Moreover, none of the Self-Publishing Companies even have any Marketing Roadmap, they simply make fool of their Authors by charging them huge sum of money for just the Social-Media Promotions, which the Authors can do themselves too!
• Even worse, the Self-Publishing Companies don’t take their Authors’ Books to Physical Bookstores and if they do so then they charge a fortune for this service, which the Authors have to bear!
• Also, even after charging a huge amount, these Self-Publishing Companies displays only a limited number of copies of their Authors’ Books in the Bookstores and after the sales of that limited stock, Authors are charged again & again for this Costly-Service!
• Further, these Self-Publishing Companies don’t take their Authors’ Books to the Book-Fairs taking place across the country and if they take the books to the fairs then again they charge a really high fees for that.
• Finally, they break all the dreams of an Author, who dreams to become a Best-Seller, since their mindset is only to make money from the Authors and not to pay them; Most of the times they sell the unnecessary services to the Authors, which yields no productive results and simply wastes the Authors’ Money!
Now, the big question is what shall you do if you’re an Author? Should you go to the Traditional Publishing Companies? That’s undoubtedly good for Book-Marketing but everyone knows what happens there. They don’t accept the manuscripts that easily and in most of the cases Authors faces rejections. Further, even when they accept the Authors’ Manuscripts then again they take a significant longer time period to publish the Books. We know that most of the Authors don’t want to wait for such a longer time period specially after completing their manuscripts and desires to see their books soon in the market. But the Traditional Publishing Companies don’t care for Authors’ wishes in many aspects, since the publishing and releasing of the Authors’ Work takes a really lot of time; Also, there’s a great amount of interference in Authors’ Manuscripts and the Authors faces a lot of creative restrictions too by them!
So, PUFFINS PUBLISHERS Private Limited, which is a Global Hybrid Book Publishing Company brings a perfect solution for the Authors who are forced to face the problems, which we have examined and stated.
In Mid 2019, Neel Preet, who is an Amazon India Best-Selling Author came forward to combat all kinds of problems, which the Self-Publishing & Traditional Publishing Companies had created for the Authors! Neel Preet along with his team incorporated a Hybrid Book Publishing Company with the intention of publishing the Authors’ Work in a much ‘Economical Manner’ by creating a Structure, which facilitated ‘Higher Royalties Earnings’ for the Authors. Further in this Publishing Structure, Neel Preet made sure that the Authors’ Work could be published in ‘Shorter Time Period’ by giving full ‘Creative Freedom’ to the Authors. Most important of all, Neel Preet along with his team designed an effective road-map for the Marketing of the Authors’ Books and made some great efforts of taking the Books not just to the Bookstores but also to the Book-Fairs across the country. Also, in this structure there are several provisions to carry out the ‘Book Marketing’ activities for the Authors that too without even charging any fees from them.
Moreover, this Hybrid Publishing House, structured by Authorpreneur Neel Preet had a very clear intention and that is to help the Budding Authors of India to grow and carry out their Writing Job without the worry of facing the difficulties that come along during the time of publishing.
