We’re Hiring—Join Us!

Bloody Good Book is a not-for-profit eBook publishing venture by author Rashmi Bansal and Niyati Patel.

Our ultimate ambition is to radically change the publishing business and help original, talented authors get published.

As you can see, your role will be varied and no two days will be the same. You will get the chance to find out your strengths on the job and have the chance to immerse yourself in every aspect of publishing.
