If you’re a writer, editor, or publicist looking to have an upcoming desi 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. It will help greatly if you could contact at least three months before the book’s launch date.
Books must be traditionally published. Apologies, but no hybrid or self-published books at this time. Genres supported right now: adult fiction; literary translations; creative and narrative nonfiction; graphic works; poetry collections. Apologies, but no cookbooks, self-help, business, gardening/home decorating, religion, kid lit, young adult, romance, or horror at this time. NOTE: This isn’t about being non-inclusive but about focusing on present, limited areas of knowledge and expertise with limited resources. As Desi Books grows, it will be possible to bring on experts in other book genres and compensate them.
Here’s an ongoing list of other media resources focusing on writers of South Asian origin.
