Tellwell Publishing


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.


Editing puts a polish on your manuscript. It makes the writing more crisp, clear and concise. A good edit is also about avoiding embarrassment when you are promoting your book and readers comment on all the typos they found.


A well-designed book is an incredibly important way to stand out from the competition. People judge books by their covers. Readers, book reviewers, critics, whether or not they notice your book in the first place may depend on the quality of your cover.


Effectively marketing a book starts with knowing the target audience, the competition, the purpose of your book and what makes it unique.


Audiobooks are the fastest growing sector in publishing, showing near 50% year-over-year growth in North America. Work with our talented team of narrators and project managers to produce a high quality audiobook that can help you reach a new audience.


We partner with printers located within the United States and around the world. We have options for printing anywhere from one book, to thousands at competitive prices. In addition to bulk orders, we work with print-on-demand partners allowing authors to sell their books globally without having to fulfill orders themselves.


We can publish your book in paperback, hard cover, and/or as an eBook, making your book available to over 39,000 book retailers online such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Coles and Powell’s.

Success Stories



Why more Americans are choosing to self-publish:

  • To bypass the exhausting and arduous effort in finding a literary agent and traditional book publisher
  • To retain full creative control and the copyright
  • To earn much higher royalties
  • To bring their book to market quickly, in months rather than years


Why authors choose to work with an assisted self-publishing company

Quality Matters

Authors want a professional quality book they will be proud of and can stand out from the competition.

Creative Focus

Many authors prefer to focus on what they enjoy doing, and are best at - writing and storytelling. Working with a publishing team allows their free time to be focused on the creative aspect, not the business or technical side of publishing.

Saves Time

Working with a team saves you time by moving your book project along quickly, often much faster than if you are doing everything yourself, or relying on a team of independent contractors with varying lead and turnaround times.

Guidance and Support

Doing everything yourself is a lot of work and can easily be overwhelming. Authors benefit from the guidance of a dedicated and professional publishing team.

Peace of Mind

By working with a talented and experienced team of publishing professionals, authors don’t have to worry about the book not meeting distribution requirements, having sloppy formatting, or an amateur cover.


An experienced publishing team can empower and educate you throughout your author journey by offering resources, tools, and guidance to help you make the best decisions for your book.
