After continuing for some time with traditional publishing
model we now have moved to partner-publishing model where we
embark on doing projects with authors (provided the
manuscript is accepted and the terms and conditions agreed)
by sharing costs and offering authors with the option of
buying back some copies of the title. With this option we
expect to have faster turn-around time.
Please note that all the work done by traditional publishing
model remain the same in this as well – only the
commercials have changed a bit to do justice to the
manuscripts which we wish to publish as titles from
Normally we plan to have our new publications to be ready
before the Kolkata Bookfair every year. The Kolkata bookfair
commences on the last Wednesday of January every year and
goes on for 12 days.
So currently if we agree on manuscripts between February –
August of any year we will in all likeliness be able to
publish the book in the Kolkata Bookfair the next year.
Otherwise, if we agree on a manuscript between September –
January we have to plan to publish the book sometime after
the Kolkata Bookfair.
We will accept manuscripts by email and preferably in typed
format. Please expect to hear back from us within 3 months.
In case you don’t hear back from us in 3 months please do
knock us again at SristisukhProkashan@gmail.com.
Till the time you do not have a formal Letter of Intent
(LoI) from Sristisukh, please free to reach other Publishers
with the work – we have no objection to the same.
If you move ahead with any other publisher before we
(Sristisukh) have shared a Letter of Intent with you stating
our willingness to publish the book provided the terms and
conditions are agreed and understood by you, please do let
us know, we will stop working on your manuscript further.
It depends. Normally at the current scenario we are looking
at a retail price of INR100-125 for a book of 96 pages.
However this price may vary on market conditions and also if
the size of the book changes.
The final price of the book will be decided once the
manuscript is accepted and we agree on the terms and
conditions of publication with the author.
The sales report is generated every 6 months – at the end
of September (for April to September of that year) and at
the end of next March (for October that year till March end
next year). You will receive the agreed royalty fee for all
copies sold within this period.
You need to provide your bank details and the royalties as
calculated will be deposited in the same. In case you
don’t wish to go by this method any alternate and feasible
channel of disbursement will be discussed between you and
Sristisukh during the later stages of the publication cycle.
