get started

Our professional package includes comprehensive distribution in paperback, hardcover and ebooks. We design and layout your book in each format plus help you with marketing and publicity. Our book marketing manager will consult with you and provide you with Tellwell's 20 page marketing guide, a 5 page custom strategy and design a book backgrounder. To avoid spelling or grammar errors, consider adding copy editing to this package.

Includes:

Design
  • Professional design of your book’s front and back cover
  • Interior layout, proper formatting for print-on-demand and ebooks*
  • Two revision rounds to incorporate your feedback on the cover and interior layout
Distribution
  • Distribution of your book in paperback and hardcover to 39,000 booksellers including Chapters and independent bookstores
  • Book sales on Amazon.com, Chapters.Indigo.ca and other online retailers
  • Expanded ebook distribution including Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iBooks, and OverDrive
  • Amazon Look-Inside
  • 3 ISBNs (paperback, hardcover, ebook)
Marketing
  • Our book marketing manager will consult with you and provide you with Tellwell's 20 page marketing guide, a 5 page custom strategy, and design a book backgrounder
  • A targeted media list to generate publicity
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

  • Copy editing for spelling and grammar: 2 cents per word
  • Substantive edit (content & copy): 3.9 cents per word

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.
