Once a story is been written, the very next step is the decision to publish it isn’t the only big decision one makes. Getting published in India is like reaching the top of Mount Everest that too without oxygen masks! That is how it feels to most new authors who eventually manage to get published. It’s tough. Really tough for the new authors who are out there looking for a publisher with powers to turn their dreams into reality by printing those manuscripts in their hands in paperbacks.
Writing a story is one thing, getting it published is another and then selling it to the market is the different thing altogether. With the internet replacing books as our source of information and entertainment, it would be incorrect to deny if the publishing world isn’t experiencing a slight slump.
