Tell us about the journey of Secrets Of Ink so far.
I started Secrets Of Ink with the vision of extending end-to-end services to writers, making the process a cakewalk for them. Initially, we had to make our brand known among the writing community and make them aware of the publishing process with Secrets Of Ink, and
this indeed was the real struggle as we had limited financial backup for any paid marketing strategy. it’s been a spectacular journey—a journey full of lessons, hardships, struggle, joy and moments that now define our lives.
What is self-publishing exactly and what services do you offer?
Self-publishing, as the term speaks for itself, is the process of getting one’s book published by themselves. You, as a writer, can design, edit, print, and distribute your work on your own, or you can hire a platform like Secrets Of Ink, which takes care of all the needs of the manuscript and brings it out in the market at a very reasonable cost to be borne by the writer. We offer end-to-end services ranging from filing the copyright application, editing, designing, and formatting to listing on online portals like Amazon.
