Decide why you want to publish
For family, friends or colleagues
If your book is not going to be for sale then it is not necessary for your title to be officially registered or distributed through bookshops. You simply choose what size and format of book you would like to produce, then design a cover, layout the internal pages and finally, choose how many copies to print. You can learn more about this process by following the simple steps on our Create Book page and looking at our Print Cost Calculator. And if you like what you read, you can start making your book today with our Basic Package.
For sale to the public
Or perhaps you have a story that you feel will be of appeal to a wider audience? You can register your book with a distributor who will make information about your title available through booksellers across the world. Customers can then instantly buy your book as an ebook or order a physical copy – with a copies being printing individually as they are ordered (this is called Print-on-Demand). You can learn more about this process on our Publish Book page. We have two publishing packages, Plus and Pro, designed to cater for varying budgets and ambitions.

"Type & Tell is a great alternative for anyone who wants to publish their book. It is a simple, clear and very adaptable tool. And I must admit that is there is something liberating in having almost all the control of ones own product"
"Being a total novice in the process of creating and publishing a book, Type & Tell has been there for me with the knowledge, and that has given me more time to writing, marketing and seeing my readers"
"The process of writing and publishing a book can be long and sometimes lonely. But choosing to become a self-publisher is one of the most fun and rewarding things I’ve made in recent years. Having the support of Type & Tells team, their services and their experience made the process much easier, funnier and more professional"
