At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.” ― Denzel Washington

This year, on my birthday (20th June), I pledged to help new writers looking for publishing opportunities.

The question that arises now is, “How to become a published author with my help?

1. Write something on the theme of MONSOON

Write a poem, a short story, or even a micro tale. There’s no word limit and your piece can be any form of fiction writing.

2. Email your submissions

I have tied up with Pachyderm Tales to see this project through. They’re a literary consulting firm helping new as well as established writers. You can send the work to either my email address (manali1988@gmail.com) or their official one (pachydermtales@gmail.com)

We’ll be editing and publishing your work without any cost.

3. Your work/submission will be published in an anthology

An anthology is a co-authored book. All the submissions will go together in a single book. The space within the pages of this book will be shared by a total of 15 writers from India and Europe. We’ll be publishing them in both eBook and paperback versions.


Here is some other basic information:

1. Who can submit?

There is no age limit. However, there is a region-based limitation. We’re only going to accept submissions from Indian and European writers(we’ll be opening up more projects for other regions very soon)

2. Where will the book be available?

It will be made available on all major online book portals like Amazon and Flipkart. The offline distribution will be discussed, decided, and planned out later.

3. Who will edit my work?

The submissions will be edited by me personally. I’m a two-time award-winning author and a multiple times bestselling author on Amazon. I’m also a freelance editor. So, you can rely on my skills and trust that I will polish your work/submissions to the best of my abilities.

4. Is there a word limit?

No. We believe creativity cannot be caged within a minimum or a maximum number of words. So your stories can be as short or as long as you’d like them to be.

5. Can I send multiple submissions?

No. One writer is allowed only one submission.

6. Who will be the publisher?

That will be decided later, once we have all submissions ready to be published.


Here’s a little wrap-up one last time:
