The art of storytelling is at the heart of all human being, however, only a few get published. It wasn’t a case with Ushasi Sen Basu and Febin John James. They published their books without the assistance of professional publishers. This means they were involved in writing the manuscript, editing, publishing and marketing. Ushasi Sen Basu wrote a fiction novel and due to the affinity towards her project, she didn’t feel comfortable giving the reigns of her book to anyone; so she did it herself.
Inspired by a technical book written in a simple manner, Febin John James wrote a book on Cloud with the aim of making it simple and affordable to everyone. He conducted pricing research that would enable local people to be able to afford his book.
