"The e-book explosion makes it imperative for authors to have their books (or at least an excerpt) available electronically and our service provides them a cheap way of doing so", says Leonard Fernandes, a co-founder of the Goa, India-based CinnamonTeal.
E-books will be provided at no extra charge for most platforms. However, for platforms such as the Kindle and the iPad, the book will have to be formatted according to special guidelines and this formatting will be charged. Revenues accrued from the sale of e-books will be split between the author and the hosting platform. Books will be available across most platforms including the iPhone, the iPad and the Kindle.
The audiobooks will be provided in mp3 format for further use. These files could be packaged as CDs or could be included on the author's website and hence be an important marketing tool.
"The inclusion of these services makes it possible for CinnamonTeal to provide authors all the services they may require at one place. That makes it easy for authors to manage their transactions and spares them time to concentrate on other important matters", Leonard said.

At CinnamonTeal, we offer print-on-demand services. Print-On-Demand (POD) is essentially a service that allows books to be printed in small quantities without compromising on the quality of the book or the turnaround time. That means we can print even one single copy at a time if demand so dictates. In addition to POD, we also provide editorial, book design, page illustration and translation services. We have an efficient online distribution system which means you can list your book for sale on the web. What's more, we also undertake to ship your book to any part of the world.
