Book Quality

It takes three things to be a successful author!

  1. You must write a good book!
  2. We must professionally deliver your work into all eBook and Internet print book channels!
  3. The world needs to find out about your book!

Part 1 is up to you. Let there be no doubt that from writing an intriguing mystery to a heart stopping romance to a well-researched biography, the first component of book quality starts with you. And, the number one way to improve your work, HAVE IT PROFESSIONALLY EDITED! Talk to us. Our people are pros and the price is right.

Part 2 is on us! Formatting an eBook is more than a Word file push to the Amazon Kindle site. Have you ever read a poorly formatted eBook? It's so distracting that often the reader gives up on the story due to the terrible reading environment. The style guide that we have developed contains hundreds of instructions to our formatters allowing us to not only deliver a perfect Kindle eBook, but also perfection on the KOBO, Nook, Sony eReader and the iPad. Each has its own idiosyncrasies

eBooks are not page oriented. They allow users to set their own reading environments. Testing for font changes image location on all eReaders is of real importance. An amateur looking eBook will cause reviewers to dump you into the not-ready-for-prime-time bucket. A book sale killer!

And what about your cover? eBook covers are important. And they're the most important when they are small. Way small as in thumbnail. The fact is most of your prospective readers will encounter your book as a thumbnail image lost in a sea of other thumbnails. What makes yours stand out? It's a tough message to sell in a very small space!

Talk to us about quality. Don't be misled into thinking that a professional looking book just happens. We have many, many examples of the good and the bad. From interiors that run amok to covers that don't grab your audience. Book quality must live up to the content that you worked so hard to make perfect.

What Are They Saying?

"The team at Telemachus was so professional and helpful from the first moment I spoke with them, all the way through cover design, interior layout design, editing, and even helping me get set up on all the book sales sites. They held my hand throughout the entire process and made themselves available to me whenever I had questions or concerns, which was often since I’m a first time author. They were able to translate my design vision for the book from my feeble verbal descriptions into a beautifully packaged cookbook that I am proud to sell on amazon. I had to go the offset printing route, and Steve was by my side helping facilitate a very complicated process. Steve and Terri are 1000% dedicated to helping authors make the best book they possibly can, and to help educate them about how the new model of the publishing industry works so that we can go out there and sell books. I could NOT imagine working with anyone else, and I am eternally grateful to their dedication and hard work. If you are wondering if you will be in good hands at Telemachus, then stop wondering and look no further. These folks are the real deal! Thank you, Telemachus!"
