We help authors market publish distribute books

You have a story that deserves to be heard. We can help.


Why choose self-publishing?

You’ve spent time perfecting your manuscript, and now you’re eager to get your masterpiece in front of readers. Where do you begin? Your initial thought may be to pursue a traditional publishing route, but the process of finding and securing a literary agent, pitching your book to publishers, and waiting on results can be arduous. Many authors are instead pursuing self-publishing with companies like Tellwell to increase their royalties and bring their works to market quicker without sacrificing quality or creative control. As a self-publishing company, we help authors bring their dreams to life.

Making a great book takes a great team. Ours supports you at every step:


Polish your manuscript to make the writing crisp, clear, and concise. A well-edited book lets your story, not pesky grammar mistakes or typos, shine.

Design & Illustration

A beautiful book stands out from the competition. The quality of your cover and interior will attract readers and impress reviewers.

Marketing & Publicity

Effectively marketing a book starts with knowing your target audience, the competition, the purpose of your book and what makes it unique. The next step is implementing proven tactics to promote your book and build your personal brand.


Audiobooks are the fastest growing sector in publishing, showing near 50% year-over-year growth. 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 Australia 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 Australia, Booktopia, Dymocks, Boomerang Books, Collins, and QBD Books.
