Amish Tripathi

Amish Tripathi, author of the bestselling Shiva trilogy, has earned a $1,000,000 advance from India’s Westland Press for the South Asian rights to his next three-part book series. Tripathi isn’t sure what his next trilogy will be about.

His publishers say this is the biggest advance they’ve ever given, but made the offer “on the basis of not only the past sales record but also in our belief in Tripathi as a writer and his ability to deliver another blockbuster trilogy.” reports, “Other acclaimed Indian writers, such as Vikram Seth and Amitav Ghosh, have garnered bigger advances in the past but their deals have included rights for countries such as Britain and the United States.”
