It has been a pure pleasure working with Telemachus. No surprises, no panic and all deadlines met. (Especially after I learned to listen.) Note for authors: It is IMPOSSIBLE for an author to proof his own stuff. Get outside editing/proofing package.

Testimonial by Jason Seib

My experience with Telemachus Press was absolutely fantastic.  For me, the biggest thing I want out a relationship like this is communication, and TP delivered in spades.  At every step along the way, I knew EXACTLY what was going on.  Compound this with the fact that the end product was beautiful and I am a very happy author.  If you're thinking about using Telemachus Press to publish your hard work, stop thinking about it and pull the trigger!

Testimonial by Takunda Keith Mahachi and Ali Gorson-Marrow

Me and my partner in crime have come a long way on this writing and publishing journey but with this priceless family called Telemachus we managed to overcome all predicaments. They made us believe that you do not need to have grey hair or to be from an elite group of people in order to be a difference in the world. Despite our young age they believed in us and would tolerate all of our annoying questions and nagging. We would always ask Telemachus what it takes to be the world's best's seller and they would tell us that you should instill a spirit of positivity in you no matter how many rocks block your way, you should just believe that the sky can never be the limit and we should always aim for the stars ...We love you Steve you have been a father ...mentor and above all our torch bearer throughout the journey ...Thanks we love you our priceless family. Would also want to extend my gratitude to my co-author for being tolerant ...supportive and loving. We love you guys.

Telemachus Press is a great company to work with when publishing your book. They keep in contact and give you regular updates on the progress of your book. 

They are a friendly team of hard working individuals who offer advice and help if needed. 

The overall design of the book looks fantastic and really professional. 

The process of publishing the book and making it available to buy was quick and easy.

Would recommend working with them.

Testimonial by Duke Speed

I highly recommend Telemachus Press for new authors and/or any author that aspires to “self-publish. From my very first telephone consultation with Steve, Telemachus Press exceeded my expectations. 
 
As a first-time author, I was a bit intimidated by the whole process of self-publishing, and was initially unclear about pricing, print-on-demand services, ISBN, etc. The Telemachus team of Steve, Terri, MaryAnn, and others provided constant and consistent guidance from day one until my book was ready for distribution. 
 
The fine folks at Telemachus Press were professional, courteous, and extremely responsive to my every need. I already have a new project in the queue, and will be looking toward Telemachus Press once again to see it through to completion!

Testimonial by Anna Vocino

"The team at Telemachus was so professional and helpful from the first moment I spoke with them, all the way through cover design, interior layout design, editing, and even helping me get set up on all the book sales sites.  They held my hand throughout the entire process and made themselves available to me whenever I had questions or concerns, which was often since I’m a first time author.  They were able to translate my design vision for the book from my feeble verbal descriptions into a beautifully packaged cookbook that I am proud to sell on amazon.  I had to go the offset printing route, and Steve was by my side helping facilitate a very complicated process.  Steve and Terri are 1000% dedicated to helping authors make the best book they possibly can, and to help educate them about how the new model of the publishing industry works so that we can go out there and sell books.  I could NOT imagine working with anyone else, and I am eternally grateful to their dedication and hard work.  If you are wondering if you will be in good hands at Telemachus, then stop wondering and look no further.  These folks are the real deal!  Thank you, Telemachus!"

An old personal truism proffers that if reality exceeds expectations then you are a happy person.  I have to say that I am very happy with my experience using Telemachus Press for my book, “The Bottom Line;  a Management Primer for First Line Law Enforcement Supervisors.”  I consider their cost for the product produced to be reasonable, and their service to me - the customer -  outstanding.  They were prompt, very helpful, and exceptionally nice, to boot.  Now that the book is in print they continue to help and advise without further cost. Telemachus was recommended to me by another satisfied customer (author), and I am glad I chose them for my book.  They have and continue to exceed my expectations.   Arthur Meister.

I decided I wanted to write a book when I was twelve, and six years later, Telemachus Press made my dream come true. I started the publishing process during my senior year in high school, and TP made it so manageable to publish during a busy and stressful time in my life. Everyone at TP was so supportive and worked tirelessly to make sure that my book came out exactly the way I had envisioned. I highly recommend TP to authors looking for a streamlined, but personable publishing process.

"Telemachus Press is a fantastic organization filled with professionals you can trust. They provided a guiding hand for our team of first-time publishers. We are very appreciate that they balanced their recommendations for publishing with their respect for our own vision for the book. They were kind enough to allow our creativity to flourish while providing the technical support and publication experience where needed. They are helpful, accessible and flexible. We are very very pleased with the end result of the book, and feel very confident recommending Telemachus to our friends and family."

I have used Telemachus to publish three different books, and I’ve been very happy all three times. Steve, Terri, and everyone else I’ve dealt with has been 100% responsive to my needs. The books all look great, and they’re selling well, too.

Of all the publishers I’ve worked with (and as a very successful ghostwriter I’ve worked with dozens of traditional publishers and several self-publishers), Telemachus Press has provided the best overall experience. They work so hard to make sure the author is happy. It’s a pleasure to work with them.

What do I like about Telemachus? I like that I’m in control of my book—I set the book’s price, I suggest and approve the design. Plus, Telemachus charges a very reasonable flat fee up front for design and set up, with no extra costs. So I don’t have a publisher cutting into my profits when the book sells.

If I have a question, it gets answered right away. If I’m not happy with a design element, it gets fixed right away. The price is very reasonable, the books look great, and they’re available for sale in all the right places. Why would I ever use another publisher?

Once upon a time I was Editor-in-Chief at a traditional publishing house. Then I turned to writing full-time, dealing with many different publishers over the years. My conclusion: From now on I’m sticking with Telemachus. It’s faster, it’s easier, the books look great, and I make more money.

I’ve worked with other self-publishers, and the deal they give is not good. They charge you for design, and then, when your book sells, they hang on to most of your profits. Telemachus doesn’t take a dime when you sell your book. This is how every publisher should work!
