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.
