I want to get free images to add to my book. Can I take any image from Google?

Images are subject to copyright just like your content. Availability of an image or content on Google Search does not mean that we can use that image in our book. However, there are a lot of reputed stock image websites which offer good quality images for free.

A few of them are-

  • www.pixabay.com
  • www.pexels.com
  • www.unsplash.com

Though these sites claim that the images are free for commercial use, there may be elements like registered trademarks, logos, copyrighted content etc. in the images. So, authors should carefully check the guidelines of these websites and use their own discretion in using these images, to ensure that they do not inadvertently violate anyone's intellectual property rights.

What do you mean by 100% profit?

Profit is calculated by deducting retail margin (charged by book sellers), printing cost, overhead costs etc. from the sales price of the book. You get 100% of the net profit from each sale of your book. To calculate royalty, we have a royalty calculator on our website. Please fill the number of pages, your selected MRP for the book etc. to get an idea of the royalty you will get on the sale of your book.

No. There is no shipping charge when you order direct sales author copies.

We accept all major digital payment modes including net banking, credit/debit cards, UPI, wallets etc.
