Frequently asked


  • What is the publishing process?
    Publishing with Blue Trunk Press is a simple process. All you have to do is, send in your manuscript, select your publishing plan, and get your hands on your book within the next 30-40 days.
  • What is an ISBN?
    ISBN stands for 'International Standard Book Number'. It's basically a 13 digit identification number that booksellers and libraries use to identify books, magazines, newspapers or other publications. A separate ISBN is assigned for Paperback, Hardcover and eBook versions of your book.
  • Who owns the rights to my book?
    You retain all the rights to your book. We work with a non-exclusive publishing agreement meaning, we don't own any of your content and you can even publish it elsewhere if you wish.
  • How many copies of my book will you print?
    Blue Trunk Press promises an unlimited inventory. Stay in stock and never worry about paying for additional print runs of your book. Print more, sell more. It’s all covered.
  • How many books will I sell?
    Some authors sell one or two copies, some sell thousands. All our channels should be treated as distribution platforms, not sales platforms. Your book may be available via all our distribution partners, but in order to sell copies you should consider ways to promote or market it. This may be as simple as creating a blog or contacting people to review and write about your book. With a concerted effort, a good book can become a great seller!
  • How and when are profits distributed?
    Profits from your book are distributed monthly via Bank Transfer. You are required to submit an Indian bank account during the publishing process. Profits will be paid to your nominated bank account within 40 days from the end of each month in which the order is confirmed.
