How Do i publish my book.....?

     If you have written a book and are now facing the "How do i publish my book ?"  syndrome, this is for you.
   This is specially true of writers in Hindi, more specifically for those who write Hindi poetry. Hindi poems by unknown writers don't have a market, they will be told. In fact even writers writing in the English language, in any genre, face this question if they are first time writers wanting to turn authors.
   Traditionally if you happen to be in these categories of writers, it won't be easy for you to find publishers willing to publish your work. Even if you do, generally, the onus of marketing/promoting the book will be on you, and it goes without saying that you will have to shell out costs towards the publishing process and also buy back a major chunk of the copies of your book. As regards royalty, at the most you can think in terms of a maximum of 10 % (which is considered very high ...!). Moreover, you will most probably have to surrender your copyright. And ofcourse the book will take literally ages to see the light of day.

Then you may ask "How DO i publish my book ??" or "CAN i publish my book ?" or "Is there a way to get my book published ?" or "WILL i ever be able to publish a book ?"...........
Well you could think in terms of publishing it yourself. That is self-publishing it.
What do you gain? lots. literally. Whether in terms of control, rights, royalty, satisfaction, happiness and a lot more. Also, investment (both time & money, which you anyway are required to put in is reduced to very little.

    This is where LOGIHQ can guide you and take you through the process of publishing your book. You (that is the writer/author) will retain the rights (copyright) to your book, get a pretty high royalty rate, be in control of the final look and appearance of the book and the book will come out in about a month's time after you finalise the manuscript. What's more, you don't have to spend a lot of money and have a number of copies stacked up in your place. You can order/print your book in small numbers. After all Digital printing and Print-on-demand are here.
    There are a number of self-publishing solutions available in India too now, as this popular concept has travelled from foreign shores to our country. But LOGIHQ is different. Our focus is YOU.  LOGIHQ's main aim is to give YOU, the writer, happiness, satisfaction and  highest standards of quality at the most affordable rates.
       We don't ask you to choose a package to get your book published. So there is no minimum amount that you will HAVE to shell out. It all depends on your written work, your manuscript. Whether it is a collection of poems in Hindi or English or stories or a novel or a collection of articles/opinions or anything else, you are most welcome to send it to us. Based on our assessment of your manuscript, we will work out the fees applicable in your particular case and you just have to bear those costs and nothing else. LOGIHQ has a very different take on the self-publishing concept. We are on your side, the writer's side, understanding your perspective about your prized creation, that is your book.
  In case you need assistance for publishing your book, you may contact us via e-mail at

Writers who publish their books through us are eligible for our special schemes and privileges.
