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?

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!
