Publishing Your Work – Author FAQ

We will be excited to read from you. Please take a few minutes to review the author FAQ below before sending your submissions.

Writing to address / solve a problem, and not for sake of getting a tag of ‘being an author’.

There are many problems in society, economy, education, culture, politics, policy-making, technology, spirituality, etc. that require implementable solutions from creative thinkers. That’s what we are looking for.

In simple words, we should be able to define your publication proposal as – “The problem it addresses is ______, and the solution has been assembled by combining (1) _______ (2) _______ and (3) _______

If you have an in-depth understanding of a pattern of problem in society, economy, education, culture, politics, policy-making, technology, spirituality, etc. – then we are keen to hear from you.

We begin with an open mind. Original Thinkers like you define the problem and create a solution in absolute astounding ways – hence, we just don’t know – language, environment, agriculture, youth psychology, energy healing, reforms in policy-making, elimination of corruption, ancient democratic systems, contributions of Sanskrit… the list is long, and we are eager to read your proposal.

No. We are impact publishing. Self help genre caters to individuals, whereas impact publications address society (collective) and policy (direction).

Only if the story-line meets the basic requirement of solution-orientation; and is NOT entertainment centric.

For a development/impact author, writing is a tool and not the goal itself. Because the process is complex, we cherish supporting such authors.

Please note that it will be a ‘participatory publishing’ – where Addwit will put together following services –

  • Curating the raw idea / concept
  • Developing the appropriate balance between print and digital; Suggesting suitable format – book, mega-book, video magazine, online course, etc.
  • Developing the ‘scheme of things’ for the author to structure their idea / solution around a logical flow as per reader’s psychology
  • Three levels of editorial services from simple linguistic edits to connotation edits
  • Design – interior design, illustration design and cover design – all in high-quality, consistent output
  • Coordinating the printing process
  • Coordinating the video / podcast production process
  • Author dashboard and discounted copies for author
  • Promotional events and campaigns within Addwit Brand Policies. (We avoid inorganic, aggressive marketing).

Kindly note that all these services come with a cost. Our quote will provide a transparent break-up.

It is one thing to be talented; and another thing to convert talent (or creative solution) into a book, online course or video magazine. 

Even the most talented authors may require hand-holding in a few areas, for example –

  • Hurdles that impact authors may face
  • How is impact writing different from Self Publishing? 
  • What kind of deep understanding does Impact Publishing require?
  • Is ‘impact writing’ too difficult?
  • What kind of reach-out strategies are available for the impact writers?
  • How does an impact writer make money by publishing with Addwit? 

NOTE – We also have a author-training course in the pipeline – to be published soon.
