The Hindu – December 1, 2012

Pinaki Ghosh, founder of Power Publishers, a Kolkata-based self-publishing firm, says “We have packages of different services that an author pays for. This is a one-time cost. Even if the first edition is sold out, we reprint at our own cost to keep it available. The author receives 15 per cent royalty on sales. All authors receive royalty once every three months”.

… Power Publishers distributes through Crossword, Oxford Bookstores, Flipkart, Infibeam, Indieplaza, Amazon and uread. “Most of our books are available through these outlets because of our distribution contract with them,” says Ghosh.

… Of quality control, Ghosh says, “We have a system of working that eliminates or minimises this possibility. We read all manuscripts that we agree to publish. If there are quality issues, we write to the author to try our optional editing or rewriting package. Most authors go by our advice and our professional editors edit, rewrite and refine the work.”

Power-Publishers, started in January 2008, has self-published five books and will publish another 30 by October, he said. The company charges a 30% commission for each book sold on its website. Ghosh said the number of clients coming from the US, Australia and Europe is on the rise. He said outsourcing self-publishing to India costs about one-third of that abroad.

Indeed, while there are several self-publishers and small presses across India, such as Little Fairies and Power-Publishers, Depot says it is the first to put such books in its stores.

According to Pinaki Ghosh, chief executive of Kolkata’s Power-Publishers, there are about 20 self-publishers in India. The number, he said, is expected to increase.
