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?

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.
