ThinkInk is a Coimbatore based publishing startup that aims at revering and recognizing unsung authors and their pieces of work into books. Very often, publishing a book is more tedious than writing the book itself. It is undeniable that there is too little guidance towards making a writer see his/her work take physical form. Thus, most among the writing population give up the idea of publishing their work or writing itself. Lending ears to the untold yearning of talented writers, ThinkInk came into existence.
The team is a bunch of young likeminded passionates with the common idea of bringing into light, those writers looking out for an opportunity to showcase the world, their best works.
As a first move, Team ThinkInk launched the Story of Her contest, wherein the writers were asked to submit short stories suiting to the contest’s title. About 250 plus submissions were received from authors around India and from many NRIs, both in English and Tamil. The submissions were scrutinized abiding with the contest rules and the top ten editorials picks in each language were compiled into two anthologies- ‘Story of HER’ in English and ‘Avalin Kadhai’ in Tamil and top three stories in each language received cash prizes worth
Our publication was available as print copy and E-book and was nominally priced. Thinkink’s reach was ensured by the quick sale of the two books compiled. To be exact in number, 450 copies were sold as on 13th May.2018. Many more orders are yet to be attended and the number is sure to shoot up.
BOOK LAUNCH EVENT
Our book launch event happened on the 23rd of April,2018 at Prozone Mall, Coimbatore with Dr.K.Vijayakarthikeyan, I.A.S., being the Chief Guest. Many other eminent personalities joined us on the D-Day. Many supporters and patrons along with the writers and their dear and near were a part of the event. The event received a good reach and was covered by TOI, Simplicity Coimbatore and many Tamil dailys.
