My first kannada book on world travel in budget

My first book ever is ready for purchase. ಈ ಲೇಖನವನ್ನು ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ಕಿಸಿ

Key details:
About the book: The book is written in Kannada Language and it is about traveling the world in budget. It is a Do It Yourself guide using which one can plan their international trips on their own, in budget, without having to spend a lot on tour packages.

Book covers various key aspects such as finding low airfares, visa, stay, local exploration, food (veg food in particular), various things that can go wrong during travel n how to stay safe and more.

Foreward by noted Kannada writer, gadget reviewer and Wikipedia coordinator Dr. Pavanaja U B

Book is about 110 pages and priced at INR 220.  Shipment charges extra as applicable.
I am running a 1 week launch offer of "free shipping". I also have an author special discount coupon that can be used for 100 orders. If you're about to order, ping me on any of my social media channels for a possible author special discount. Grab a copy while this offer runs- you can save a bit.

USP: With hundreds of practical, useful tips, money you're spending on the book can be recovered in just one trip, as you'll be able to save thousands of rupees as compared to traditional package tours/conventional options.

Where to order the book?
You can order it on NotionPress. Running a free shipping offer for 10 days till November 10

Book is also available on Amazon and Flipkart as well.
You can order as per your convenience- like Amazon Prime members may qualify for free delivery depending on order volume and other terms as dictated by Amazon.

Point to note- Book is printed on demand- i.e. after an order is received. So it may take a week to 10 days for it to reach you. Couple of days to print and few more days for courier. So bear with me for inconvenience.

Why this book?
I have written lots of posts in English on this blog- they are scattered all over on various blog posts over the years. I felt regional language readers need this knowledge in a handy format that they can also benefit from and use it for their travel planning. Thus the book. As far as I know there's no such similar book existing in Kannada language. This book attempts to bridge this gap.

For my non-Kannada friends:
There is a plan to launch English version of the book. May take a few months. I will keep you posted.

Can I buy it at a bookstore near me?
Unfortunately No. Book is available for online order only. Will explore physical store options in near future and keep you posted. Sending to numerous brick n mortar stores without any guarantee of sales, then following up on sales, payment etc is highly cost, time and effort intensive activity, often not viable for small publishers/writers.

Some limitations
Book is published using self-publishing platform of NotionPress. This is easy and convenient but has some limitations- can't insert table, only 1 font available, some formatting limitations etc. I couldn't afford to hire a professional team to design cover, format etc. Bear with me for some of the inconveniences. Hope to fix them in future.

Need your help.
This is my first book. Any help from you w.r.t promoting the book and helping it reach more people will be greatly appreciated. You can help in following ways:

1. Share the book cover, brief and purchase link on your social media handles
2. Write a review on Amazon.com, flipkart
3. Write a blog post in your blog
4. Purchase a copy for yourself, few more for others who may benefit from it.

Selected reviews and feedbacks may be considered for mention in future edition of the book under feedback section. Space is limited so not all reviews might get accommodated but I will acknowledge the rest in a blog post or other suitable means.

My experience publishing my first book will be shared soon in a separate post/video.

Eagerly awaiting to see how the book does. I have reviewed hundreds of books on this blog, often have criticized writers/publishers for small mistakes. Now it is my turn to receive the feedback, positive or otherwise.
