Top Novel Publishing Companies In India


Here are the few publishers those who will not read the query letter even, all they do is when they receive our query mails, they fix a forwarding message to our address to be sent after 2 or 3 days, saying that they are already busy with their projects.
1.       PENGUIN
2.       RANDOM HOUSE
3.       HARPER COLLINS
4.       ZUBAAN
Their replies are like

Many thanks for your proposal! Please regard this as a letter confirming
the receipt of your work. Our editors will assess what you have sent us,
and if we accept the work for publication or find that we are keen to read
the complete manuscript, you'll certainly hear from us within six to eight
weeks. However, we sincerely regret that because of the large volume of
manuscripts we receive, it isn't possible for us to send out individual
emails to writers whose work we are unable to publish. If you do not hear
from us within the six to eight weeks, please know that we have been
unable to accept your work for publication. Please note that we will not
return any manuscripts. We do hope you understand.

Warm regards,
The Editors
Then like a telephone ringing in a locked house there won’t be any answer from them.
And here are the publishers who will never read your synopsis but their reply will be
(I attached my synopsis in my mail, with a synopsis..In that synopsis, I wrote “I know you wont be reading this“  and typed it for 20 times then sent it to them)
1.       RUPA
2.       ROLI BOOKS
3.       WESTLAND
4.       YODA PRESS
5.       HACHETTE


We thoroughly went through your synopsis and full manuscript. We really appreciate getting a chance to consider your proposal and while there truly is some great writing here, but unfortunately this book doesn't fit into our publishing programme at the moment and therefore, we will not be able to take it up for publishing.

Many thanks again for considering us for this work.
  I was really laughing much while reading this, and worst of all the publishers were rupa they just check author profile and nothing other…


This is what some other publishers do..they sent us a mail that they have accepted to publish ours and their reply will be
  Greetings from ****** Publishing! Thanks for writing in .

We confirm the receipt of your submission. The submission is complete will all required elements.
We are forwarding your submission to the Editorial section of ****** Publishing, a senior editor will take discussions further with you post complete evaluation of your work.

       You may expect the senior evaluator to get back to you within 15 working days (3 weeks) or earlier.

·          Incase of any delay or lapse please feel write back to the senior evaluator  with a reminder or to *******

·         This e-mail is only a confirmation of your completed submission and cannot be treated as a selection by the company. The senior evaluator’s decision will be final.

And there will not be any answer from them, they just accept but never publish that’s the hard truth to be digested.  They are

1.     LEADSTART
2.     GREYOAK, ETC

GRAPEVINE:

THIS IS THEIR REPLY, AND I HEARD THAT THEY PUBLISH ONLY THEIR WORKS…
We received your proposal and our editors have gone through it. However, it does not fit our publishing profile and hence we won’t be able to undertake the same for publication.
Thank you for your interest in our company; we wish you the best in placing it elsewhere.

MAHAVEER, MILLS AND BOON.

I do not know about them as my word count doesn’t fit into their programme..

 And there are many other publishers , such as v.s, who are indeed robbers in the fake name of publishers..


Nevertheless, there are few awesome publishers who promptly respond to our queries and consider giving a chance to new authors,
They are
1.     SRISHTI …..AND NO OTHER
Even in their busy schedule and best recognised stature, they try hard to give chance to new authors…unluckily we havenot seen any of their books since a few months. I guess they are hibernated



I AM NOT WRITING THIS TO AVENGE THEM, BECAUSE THEY REFUSED TO ACCEPT MINE.  I KNOW THEY CANNOT PUBLISH EVERYONE WHO WRITE. MAY BE MINE WOULD NOT BE WORTHY OF BEING PUBLISHED.  PERHAPS, WHAT I CANNOT TOLERATE IS THAT THEY NEVER PUBLISH ANY NEW AUTHORS, WHO DO NOT HAVE STRONG RECOGNITION OR MONEY…AND THEY FORGET THEIR OBLIGATION… AT LEAST THEY SHOULD READ THE SYNOPSIS.  THEY SHOULD BE CAREFUL BEFORE REJECTING ANY AUTHORS QUERY WHO KNOWS IT MIGHT BE A MASTERPIECE. 
AND AS FAR AS I KNOW THERE ARE MANY MASTERPIECE WORKS STILL UNRECOGNISED, UNPUBLISHED IN INDIA...    
AND THESE CLEARLY EXPLAINS, WHY POPULAR WORKS ARE NOT GOOD AND GOOD WORKS ARE NOT POPULARISED IN INDIA.
