Publishing Figures

" isn't easy for Indian authors in English. Thanks to the flourishing English media, six-figure (rupee; ie more than $2,500) monthly salaries are on tap in TV journalism, and five-figure salaries in the print media. But the average English-language book deal could be worth $1,500, and is usually less for non-fiction books. "

The Asia Times investigates the world of Indian writing and publishing.


  • *sighs* Well, being a struggling writer has never been easy but seeing it so starkly makes one wonder, "Why didnt I take journalism up instead?"

    Thanks for sharing this. You're the best!
