We aim to be your friend, philosopher, agony aunt, 3 am friend, and, guide through this transformation or creation of your book/s.
At Keemiya Creatives we believe every story is born out of a need, a need to be written, to be told, and heard. To fulfill this need every writer has to undergo a journey of transforming an idea into a plot, and a storyline, adding characters, layer it with narrative, and giving birth to a novel.
Who are we?
We are a team of young (at heart) and energetic (at work) creatively passionate individuals (editors, beta readers, writing mentors, manuscript reviewers, marketing personnel) with varied experience across the publishing industry and/or literary world.
We bring along our unique perspective, problem-solving attitude, and innovative ideas to help you fulfill your dream of becoming an author. Our key focus is on providing editorial assistance to authors along with book marketing and author branding services.
All of us put together to have an experience of 20+ years in the publishing industry, marketing, sales, and distribution which helps us ensure authors have support before, during, and after writing a book.
What to expect?
Our Founder, Namrata, is a published author and editor with extensive experience working with authors and publishers since 2015. At Keemiya Creatives, our track record of producing bestsellers speaks for itself, while also working on books that had the potential to become bestsellers with the right marketing strategies in place. With Namrata’s comprehensive understanding of book marketing and publishing, we aim to make these industries transparent and accessible to everyone.
In India, transparency around book marketing is a rare commodity. Most marketing agencies offer a standard list of services without taking into account the unique needs of each book. However, at Keemiya Creatives, we understand that every book is distinctive and deserves individualized treatment.
That’s why we create custom marketing plans that are tailored to each author’s specific requirements. This includes understanding the book’s theme, relevance, target audience, and other key factors.
We take it one step further by providing specific goal-setting exercises for authors before beginning our marketing strategies. This ensures that the results are precisely in line with what the author envisioned before embarking on the journey.
Our commitment to providing customized marketing plans has made us a leader in the industry, and we look forward to bringing our expertise to even more authors in India and beyond.
We are a small team of enthusiastic individuals who love the written word. Be it reading books or working on books, it remains the constant source of joy for us.
Namrata created Keemiya Creatives in 2018 out of her love for writing and publishing. The idea behind Keemiya was to offer a one-stop destination to all writers.
A published author, she enjoys writing stories and think-pieces on travel, relationships, and gender. She is a UEA alumnus and has studied travel writing at the University of Sydney.
She has been a part of multiple anthologies with her short stories before coming out with her own short story collection called Metro Diaries 1 and 2. In 2021, she took her love for travel writing a step further by merging it with her love for memoirs and penning down – A Lost Wanderer- A Book of Memories.
While Keemiya started with basic editing services as the main offering, we then grew into beta-reading, book-to-screen script proposal, publishers’ pitch kit, social media marketing, screenplay adaptation, and many other such avenues.
In 2019, Namrata started working with publishing houses and authors on book promotions.
Since April 2020, she is also the editor of Kitaab, a literary magazine based in Singapore.
She is also an independent editor and a book reviewer. Her writings and essays on literary criticism can be found on various sites and magazines like the Asian Review of Books, Contemporary South Asia Journal of King’s College-London, Kitaab, Mad in Asia, The Friday Times, Daily Star, The Scroll, Feminism in India, The Brown Orient Journal, Kitaab, Inkspire Journal, Moonlight Journal, The Same, Chronic Pain India and Cafe Dissensus.
