Please use the form below to pitch a book or feature for one of the Desi Books channels, cover Desi Books in the press, or inquire about our paid sponsorship options.

Some guidelines:
1) If you’re a writer, editor, or publicist looking to have an upcoming book featured on Desi Books, please include the book’s title, description, genre, publisher name, publication date, publication region(s), author bio, and any other information that might be relevant.
2) It would help significantly if you could contact us at least three months before the book’s launch date.
3) Books must be traditionally published.
4) Genres supported currently: adult fiction; literary translation; creative and narrative nonfiction; graphic works; poetry. Apologies, no cookbooks, self-help, business, gardening, home improvement, religion, kid lit, young adult, romance, or horror genres at this time. NOTE: This isn’t about being non-inclusive but about focusing on present areas of knowledge and expertise with available resources. As Desi Books grows, it may be possible to bring on experts in other genres.

Here’s an ongoing list of other media resources focusing on writers of South Asian origin.
