India's leading print on demand backed self publishing company Pothi.com to provide an opportunity for independent authors to reach out to a wider audience by displaying their books at its stall during the forthcoming Bangalore Book festival.

 Bangalore (October 20, 2009): India’s leading self publishing and print on demand company Pothi.com will showcase self published and independent author’s books at its stall during the forthcoming Bangalore Book Festival.

Self Publishing provides an opportunity for hitherto undiscovered authors to showcase their writings to the world without having to go through the tedious process of struggle and rejection by countless editors and publishing houses. However, in the absence of the backing of a publisher for promotion and distribution, independent authors are restricted to selling their books online.  This limits the reach of their books to a select few.  For the first time in India, Pothi.com is providing a platform for such authors to reach out to the masses during the forthcoming Book Festival. This will encourage and create opportunities for independent authors in their quest to reach out to a wider readership. In a magnanimous gesture, the company has decided to allow all Pothi.com authors as well as other self published authors to display their titles at its stall.

Based in Bangalore, Pothi.com is the leading print on demand backed self publishing company in India. It has published over 250 titles since its inception a little over year and half ago. The company had released five titles during last year’s Bangalore Book Festival. Pothi.com has been founded by two IIT Kanpur alumni Abhaya Agarwal and Jaya Jha.

“Bangalore Book Festival is a major event which attracts over five lakh book lovers.  The independent authors are seriously hampered by a lack of distribution network to showcase their books. This will be a never-before opportunity for them to reach out to a much wider audience. We are very excited to participate in the Festival on behalf of the independent authors.” said Abhaya Agarwal who is the co -founder of Pothi.com.  Further details are available on the website Pothi.com
