There is no upfront cost of publishing through Pothi.com, if you prepare the files according to our specifications. If you need help in editing or designing your book you pay for the individual services you choose to avail from us.
In case of print book, if you want copies for yourself, then you need to pay the special author price and shipping cost for the copies you order. You can estimate the author price at our price and royalty calculator.
We do not evaluate manuscripts. Remember, Pothi.com is not the publisher; you are. We are only providing a platform to enable people to self-publish. So, we do not give any judgment on the manuscripts submitted. If your manuscript is ready from your side, go ahead and submit it.
For print books, you can order a copy yourself at author price and ship it to your friends/family. Any other special price is currently not available.
In case of e-books, you can gift it to your friends and family by emailing a copy to them, but in this case file will not have the watermarked email of the user you are sending the book to. You should send your eBook only to the people you trust not to pirate the book.
