The Telemachus Press Blog


      Gosh, this is one question I get all the time. Why should I publish with Telemachus Press? Why shouldn't I use another work-for-hire publisher? When I get these questions and more, a gazillion thoughts race through my mind. The first usually is, how can I share with these authors the benefits and beauty of publishing with Telemachus Press?

      What I want to do is show them my three novels that I published with them as an author before I became their Author Advisor. I must have emailed my account manager daily with questions that she patiently answered. And my books are beautifully produced, if I do say so myself. 

      Then I want to tell the authors about the people who own and work for Telemachus Press. The Steves are the owners. They are hands-on owners that you can actually communicate with and who truly put our authors first. Then there are the account managers, cover artists, editors, formatters, uploaders, and more who work diligently to produce the best book possible for you. And don't forget the Author Advisor (me!). We are live, loving and caring people who treat our authors' books as if they are our own babies.

      Next I want to talk about how there is no game playing at Telemachus Press. No bait and switch. One flat fee covers all of our services. The only exceptions are that there are extra fees if an author chooses editing, video book trailer and Spanish language translation.

      And then there is so much more, like:
