Unlock Opportunities, Shape Literary Journeys
Welcome to Booksthakam, a traditional publishing house deeply rooted in the ethos of quality literature. We pride ourselves on nurturing and presenting the finest works to the world. As part of our mission to embrace diverse voices, we introduce the role of Literary Agents who play a pivotal role in shaping the literary landscape.
The Role of a Booksthakam Literary Agent
Tradition and Innovation
At Booksthakam, we follow a dual publishing model — Traditional and Hybrid. In the traditional model, selected titles from our annual list receive the full traditional publishing treatment, covering all costs without any financial burden on the author. In the hybrid model, where genres might not align with our annual list, authors bear the publishing costs. This enables aspiring writers to showcase their work and become branded authors, enjoying the privileges of traditional publishing.
Word of Mouth Advocacy
As a Booksthakam Literary Agent, your primary role is to be the voice of our publishing house. Spread the word within your circles and beyond about the success stories, the national achievements, and the transformative journey that defines Booksthakam. Your word of mouth becomes a powerful reference for aspiring authors seeking a platform for their literary endeavors.
How It Works: Traditional vs. Hybrid Publishing
No Upfront Costs: Authors chosen for our traditional publishing list enjoy the privilege of having their work published without bearing any upfront charges.
Benefit for Literary Agents: Royalties are shared.
Understanding the Hybrid Model:
Author Empowerment: For unique genres outside our traditional list, authors can opt for our hybrid model by bearing one-time charges.
Benefit for Literary Agents: Royalties and a commission amount are shared.
In both cases:
Lifetime Privileges: Once published, authors enjoy lifetime privileges and recognition, ensuring their work stays in the literary spotlight.
Your Mission as a Literary Agent
