Sulekha.com takes its bloggers’ work to print with Sulekha Book Series

Sulekha.com, a popular online community for Indians worldwide, has launched the Sulekha Book Series, a part of the year round Blogprint initiative, which sees the creative works of Sulekha’s bloggers appear in print. The Sulekha Book Series is Sulekha.com’s own publication series to encourage quality blogging by publishing works of their bloggers in two parts. It will feature both publications of an individual blogger and collective works of multiple bloggers.

Commenting on this initiative, Satya Prabhakar, CEO, Sulekha.com, said, “After the phenomenal success that we had with our Blogprint initiative, we at Sulekha.com thought of publishing our own series of books, featuring some of our most prolific writers, who have been our support system. The idea is to encourage more creative writers and provide them a platform to showcase their works. Books of this genre are a good pick for casual reading and would encourage more and more people to take up reading as a hobby.”

The first book in the series is ‘Subbu Chronicles - A Series of Adventures, by Mumbai-based BS Keshav. The book chronicles the adventures of Rajeev Subramanyam, a Mumbai-based journalist. The story has various characters, who add flavour and life to the adventures of Subramanyam. The book is light-hearted and captures the true spirit of Mumbai from the mafia to wardrobe malfunction, each of which Subbu has a take on. The story seamlessly integrates the aspirations and dreams of the common man with the desire to aspire and achieve more.

Keshav, the author of ‘Subbu Chronicles’, said, “Sulekha.com’s effort to encourage and acknowledge our work is highly commendable. It has always been an ideal platform for bloggers to explore and expand their ideas. This new initiative by Sulekha.com provides yet another exciting dimension to reach out to larger audience.”

Chosen form a wide variety of popular blogs, these books would be available for sale on Sulekha.com and India Plaza. In the next few months, Sulekha.com will publish coffee table books, books dedicated to travel, humour, food, poetry, etc.
