The Tellwell Advantage

  • We offer two distribution options and are the only Canadian company offering up to 100% royalties
  • We are 100% transparent about the talent working on your book
  • * While design is included for most books, design-intensive books (e.g. more than 25 images, charts, complexities) will require a quote.
  • ** For authors enrolling in Direct Distribution, after the first year, authors are responsible for the annual distribution fee charged by distributors, currently, only $12 USD per year to keep the book in distribution channels. This fee is covered in the Managed Distribution program.
