Publishing a Book is Easy.
But doing it well takes a team effort!
Publishing a book can seem complicated, but really it is just four steps: editing, design, distribution, and marketing. The Tellwell Team provides support and guidance at every step. We will turn your rough manuscript into a highly polished book that makes you proud. While the author is the star of any new book, at Tellwell we also celebrate the importance of the rest of the publishing team. We are proud of the talented team of publishing professionals we have assembled to help you.
An editor provides a set of fresh eyes to improve the quality of the writing, and catch grammatical and spelling mistakes. Investing in editing is one of the most important ways to make your book acceptable in the eyes of book reviewers, bookstores, and your readers.
Our highly experienced design team will layout the front, spine and back cover for your book, with multiple revision rounds to incorporate your feedback. We layout the interior and ensure your book meets formatting requirements for distribution.
Whether you need a unique custom illustration for your cover, or a series of illustrations for a children’s story book, we’ve got you covered with our talented team of illustrators.
Your book will be available via Ingram to 39,000 booksellers including Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Print-on-demand technology allows for printing one book at a time as people buy your book. We can also publish an ebook version on Kindle, Kobo, Nook and other ebook channels.
In addition to print-on-demand distribution we provide digital short run and offset printing services. Our international printing network extends from USA and Canada to Europe and Asia, ensuring high quality and affordable printing options.
Marketing & Publicity
Your book looks great and is available for sale online, but it isn’t selling itself! Book marketing basics include creating a plan and author website. To create buzz we can help in your effort to appear in the press, on podcasts, send copies to reviewers, and plan a book launch or tour.
We publish fiction, nonfiction, kids’ books, memoirs and more.

We will customize a plan for you
Some authors choose to get help from our professional team for some steps in the publishing process, while doing some of the work themselves. We have some standard publishing “packages,” which is really just a convenient way of summarizing our work. Review our packages, then speak to one of our consultants and we can customize a proposal based on your needs.
