When Will My Book Be Published?

After we receive your manuscript, it will be reviewed by our production specialists and you will receive an estimate of when your book will be completed. Usually books are completed within the Telemachus Press Workflow between 4 and 6 weeks, often times sooner! However, this depends on author changes, release date preferences, deliverables from other vendors the author is working with and well, let’s just say it….”surprises” (which we work really hard at not having).

eBooks

We will first upload to Smashwords. After the files have been accepted, the book is immediately available for sale. The individual Smashwords distribution channel for other eBooks (iPad, Nook, Sony, etc. can be as much as 2 or 3 weeks). We will put this account in your name and you will be able to monitor its progress.

Amazon: We upload directly to Amazon’s KDP Service and after the first upload has occurred, it takes 3 to 5 days for Amazon to create the page. After your page has been created, changes to the book usually take 24 hours. We will put this account in your name and you will be able to monitor its progress.

POD With Lightning Source, Inc.

After the proof has been approved by Telemachus Press, You will be able to immediately purchase books at direct cost for book signings, marketing, etc. However, for your book to be fully available throughout Ingram’s Distribution Channel, both domestic and international, it will be 8-12 weeks.

What Are They Saying?

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.
