PODG Expands into India

"PODG continues its global expansion to bring ease of printing and distribution to authors worldwide," explained CEO Robert Fletcher.

(PRWEB) January 31, 2014

Publish On Demand Global (PODG), expands its reach within India with the recent announcement of their strategic partnering with an ISO Certified Publish-On-Demand Facility located within the country. The many services that are offered by PODG, including global distribution for both authors and publishers, are now available throughout India and will be launched at The New Delhi Book Fair in February.

Publish On Demand Global has already attended three of the New Delhi Book Fairs, and has established contacts in every aspect of the publishing community in India. Publishing-On-Demand represents a new paradigm in book publishing, and brings an equality to all authors enabling them to see their works become published. Gone are the days of having to invest huge amounts of capital to self-publish.

During a recent press conference, Robert Fletcher, CEO of PODG, had this to say: “There are thousands of CreateSpace and other POD authors from India that can now print their books locally in India and have them delivered to their home, or to the buyer without the expenses associated with shipping internationally from the USA. Through our strategic tie-up with an ISO Certified Indian printer, short run book printing in quantities as small as one or two books are now cost effective for authors from India. With this capability, this also enables us to work very closely with Flipkart and Infibeam to bring our authors’ books to those very large sales channels.”

The publishing industry in India is easily ranked amongst the top 7 publishing nations on the planet. India ranks 3rd after the USA and the United Kingdom in English Language publishing. Book sales in India has outperformed all expectations. With a population exceeding 550 million people below the age of thirty, the demand for books has been increasing exponentially. The New Delhi Book Fair is expected to attract over 1.5 million people, where eleven-hundred exhibitors from India and abroad will display their published works.

Publish On Demand Global, through its partners and affiliates, currently provides services to approximately 10,000 authors and publishers around the world. PODG has demonstrated a high level of expertise in aiding authors and publishers to penetrate global markets in print books, eBooks, mobile books, and tablet books. Their foreign rights specialists have sold rights into 27 languages and 30 countries.
