Why Publish with Telemachus Press?

Your Rights. Your Money.

Many vanity presses and/or pay for hire publishing companies tell you that you have the rights to your book. Everything seems fine until you become displeased with your service or want to leave for one reason or another. Then it gets interesting.

We Are Different

The number one reason that we are different? We take NO royalties. We are an author services consultancy. We work for you!

Have you left another publishing company only to come and find out that they will give you your book (PDF copy only), but not the cover? Ouch. You may own the rights to the book, but you may not own the cover if someone else created it for you.

Your book, your files, your money. We work for you.

And, if you are ready to leave us for one reason or another (a literary agent, a publishing house, or a movie deal? Or, decided to do it yourself) we are on your side. We support you and will return all intellectual property to you.

Again, your book, your files, your money.

We are here to make you look good!

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!
