You Keep Your Copyright

There are two parts to your financial decision when choosing a company like ours. The first is how much you will pay us compared to others who offer similar services. The second is how much you will earn per eBook and print book.

One Price Quoted, No Bait and Switch

We offer several publishing packages so we can meet any budget. But here is the important part, what we quote you is all you will ever pay us. There will never be an upsell or a disappointing call explaining that you need to buy a bigger package. Our authors who come to us from our larger competitors tell us over and over again about the bait and switch that they have experienced. They are our best and most appreciative clients.

Our Professional Services Fees

When you evaluate all factors from the no-surprises flat fees that we charge to your profitability per book, no other company comes close to what we offer. In reality, it all comes down to how many books you will sell. While our fixed fees may appear higher than some of our competitors, by the time just a few hundred of your books move through the channel, we are an amazing deal for any author. Click on this link and take a look at an example based upon typical print-on-demand publishing. See this link: Make More Money and scroll down to the bottom and look at what happens if you sell 1,000 books or 5,000 or 10,000. It’s just arithmetic and numbers don’t lie.

Telemachus Press is absolutely the lowest cost and very best value for the independent author when you evaluate the total cost and profitability picture of self-publishing. The more that you investigate us and other companies that offer author services the better we look.

Telemachus Press is the Only Choice

What Are They Saying?

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!
