CinnamonTeal Publishing, established in 2007, pioneered the business of providing publishing services to authors and trade publishers in India. Located in Goa, they have catered to customers in 18 countries and have published books across genres and in 9 languages. In 2010, Leonard Fernandes, co-founder of CinnamonTeal was awarded the British Council-sponsored Young Creative Publisher Award for being "grounded and well aware of the practicalities of [the] business, well researched and open to ideas", an award, he says, “was timely because it endorsed self-publishing as a legitimate form of expression at a time when the idea of self-publishing is itself hotly debated”. Following that he participated in the panel discussion, Digital Publishing Innovation in New Markets at the London Book Fair in April this year. www.cinnamonteal.in
