PepperScript is a new-age publishing venture by Pumpkins Enterprises Pvt. Ltd. Ever since its inception in April 2013, the company has been innovative in its approach towards publishing in keeping with its sworn mission to create a better publishing platform for writers. Being one of India’s youngest and fastest-growing publishing houses, PepperScript takes full responsibility for its beloved authors, with the promise of offering them the best guidance and care.
The idea of PepperScript was conceived during countless engineering lectures spent dreaming, scribbling new stories, and discussing the many rejections new writers have to face at the hands of publishers. Publishing is a tough line to tread, even more so for an amateur writer with great ideas but no network or field knowledge. India is a treasure house for fresh writing and budding authors, but offhanded rejections by over-burdened editors is increasingly discouraging new writers from picking up the pen. PepperScript is an attempt at helping new-age authors put their ideas to paper without the fear of rejection and disappointment.
At PepperScript, we strive for twice as much as our authors think they can get. We harbour a very different perspective towards publishing. The team at PepperScript is peopled by young writers who have personally braved the hardships of publishing, and we are better equipped to help amateur writers overcome their hurdles, both temporal and mental. We understand what goes on in your mind, your needs, and your problems, because we’ve been there and we care. We hunt for scripts the audience can relate to and authors so observant of their world that their writing is a mirror to the reader’s own universe. We nurture talented individuals to bring out the genius in them through their writings. We want our writers to carve a niche for themselves in the literary field, and our commitment to their success is unshakeable.
There is no stone we won’t turn to make your writing and publishing journey a smooth and satisfying one. Always up for a challenge, we have extended our ambit with two path breaking projects – Write Young and Project Moets. The first is an endeavour to motivate the youth to stay young and write their hearts out, for we are here to help them carry forward their dreams with the promise of taking their manuscripts to the printing press. The second is an initiative to encourage the poets of the country not to shy away from expressing themselves through poetry, because we believe verse can achieve what prose often cannot.
PepperScript seeks to launch as many new authors as it can, in as many new avenues as can be thought of. With many new imprints in the pipeline, our vision is to occupy the spaces as yet untouched and find talent as yet undiscovered.

We at PepperScript treat your manuscript as our own child, nurturing it with our experts’ guidance and developing it with your indulgence. While the traditional publishing options available to new authors are few, self-publishing on the other hand lacks an engagement-driven approach towards communicating an author’s real worth to the reader. PepperScript stands at the dividing line between the two, marrying the support framework and expert guidance of one with the flexibility and accessibility of the other. We support you with our services at all stages of your book, right from the concept and design to the actual printing and marketing. We work in tandem with you within a process that is open, flexible, and always adaptable to changes.
When it comes to choosing a publisher for your book, it is always a question of why one and not the other. PepperScript makes the choice simple – we help you bring out a better version of yourself. If we publish you, rest assured we believe in your vision and your work, and we’ll take the success of your book as personal success for PepperScript. In the rare event that we reject a manuscript, we return it with feedback on what is amiss and also offer the writer a period of six months to re-work the manuscript and submit again for consideration. We believe in the power of stories: if your story speaks to us, everything else can be worked on.
We are a young company, high on energy and ideas, and we make sure our authors grow as we grow with time. Publishing isn’t, after all, only about a manuscript reaching its audience. It is also about the bonds of trust and comfort that authors and publishers build over the course of months and years of brainstorming, co-working and co-creating something that will last forever.
