An Invitation To Authors


A growing publisher with a hungry appettie is always in need of ideas. If you feel that you have a good idea that you would like us to consider, we would be only too happy to do so. We can't promise to publish every ideas or manuscript we receive, we can promise they will be given serious consideration. If we then do decide to go ahead, we can guarantee speedy production and aggressive marketing, all handled by committed staff. If you have an ideas, or a completed manuscript, we will be more than happy to talk to you about it.


We accept manuscripts that have a strong connection to India and the subcontinent with potential global appeal. The categories we accept are listed below, but come up with something innovative, and we’re happy to explore!
