This package works well for kids books requiring up to eight illustrations. We design and distribute your book in paperback format. You can add on additional services such as editing, and hard cover design and distribution.

Includes:

Design
  • Professional design of your book’s front and back cover
  • Interior layout, proper formatting for print-on-demand*
  • Two revision rounds to incorporate your feedback on the cover and interior layout
  • Up to eight illustrations
Distribution
  • Distribution of your book in paperback format
  • Book sales on Amazon.com, Chapters.Indigo.ca and other online retailers
  • Availability to 39,000 booksellers including Chapters and independent bookstores**
  • ISBN
Printing
  • Automatic printing and fulfillment of all book orders
  • Printer-direct ordering which means we don’t mark-up print-on-demand costs like most other companies (which reduces your royalty and forces you to price your book higher)

Add more

  • Kids book edit: content and copy editing $500
  • Hard cover design and distribution: $250
  • Book marketing strategy, author website: see our Marketing Services

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.

You'll have the chance to choose your artistic collaborator for the packages below. Check our sample work by our illustrators here.
