    A chapter at a time

    Amish Tripathi’s Shiva Trilogy is now available on Daily Hunt, in a unique pay-per-section format

    For those who haven’t quite read Amish Tripathi’s books, and are curious about his much-talked about books, here’s a good way to be introduced to his works. Publishers Westland Books have now made his bestselling Shiva Trilogy available on Daily Hunt (the news app that also stocks e-books and magazines in over 10 languages). The books are available in a unique pay-per-chapter format (a concept pioneered by China), where readers will have to pay `15 for each chapter they want to read. One can of course also buy the entire e-book through the app.
    “It is similar to purchasing songs on iTunes, where you pay for a song in an album, and if you like it, you decide to buy the album itself,” explains Gautam Padmanabhan, CEO of Westland, who adds that the books will be available in nine different languages, including Tamil, Hindi, Bengali, and Malayalam, etc. “Very soon, it will be expanded to 16 languages,” he adds.
    Amish Tripathi, who has already started writing the sequel to Scion of Ishvaku, admits that the book distribution network in the country has not been able to reach the masses yet. “This concept is targeted at those who do not have the habit of buying books from stores. Going digital will increase the reach for not just my books, but others’ too,” he says, adding that the translation into other languages has been done by the publishers.
    The company plans to
    use the same concept for their other books too by authors such as Preeti Shenoy, Harsha Bhogle, Rashmi Bansal, and Ashwin Sanghi
    among others.
