Get a subtle edge in your endeavour to present your work to the world of readers through our publishing services.
Subtledge, launched in 2020, is a division of Indus Source Books, publishing works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, in the English language.

I recommend Indus Source to anyone that wishes to stroke the keyboard and sculpt their thoughts into the computer, or laptop, for a book (or, books), a dream-come-true project, to roll out. That Indus Source has brought quality publishing, not just frenzied hard sell, to the
fore for years is its roseate attribute. This bids fair for its new venture, “Subtledge” — where subtlety for the written word and publishing finesse are seamlessly poised to reaching the crescendo... for established and wannabe authors alike.

The news that Indus Source is setting up Subtledge, which will provide publishing services to budding authors, is very welcome. There are many people, young and old, who have written books but who do not know how and where to begin to get them published. I have worked with Indus Source and I know their exacting standards when it comes to working on a book. I am sure they will bring the same rigour to Subtledge.

Very few publishers are emotional about their work; Indus Source Books is one of them. They believe in their authors and their work. They are open to genuine writing from any field. They are warm, welcoming, and provide wonderful insights in order to improve the product. Thank you Indus Source Books for helping me take off as an author. Wishing their new division “Subtledge” a grand take off and a fulfilling journey.

If you want your name associated with a publishing house that’s classy, and is known for books marked by excellent research to facilitate intellectual exploration and discovery, as also great production quality, Indus Source should be your first option. Also, if the thought of approaching a publisher intimidates you, Sonavi Desai, the accomplished, refined, gentle boss of the publishing house, will come as a pleasant surprise. Here’s someone who is passionate about the books that she publishes, emphasises excellence of quality, and also helps you achieve it. As an author and editor, I have loved my journey with her.

Working with Indus Source on 3 books has been great, right from editing to working on distribution partners. Very professional. Very involved. Which is rare.
Wishing them all the best for their new venture, Subtledge.

I was privileged to have been introduced to Indus Source in 2014 for the publication of my first book National Security & Intelligence Management: A New Paradigm. This was a collection of my selected lectures and published columns in India and abroad.
I have always found Ms. Sonavi Desai and her capable team very caring and attentive to look after the interests of new writers. I wish them success in their new venture which will be beneficial to the reading public.
