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.

"Everyone has a book in them, as their lives contain many stories. Type & Tell have been extremely patient and supportive of me during the process, and I can’t wait for my book to be available for every one."
"Type & Tell makes independent publishing easy. They take you logically through each step, explaining why each is important. Their online Book Editor makes it very easy to turn your Word file into a published book and editing is a dream! Best of all, it produces books that read well and look great."
"I felt that Type & Tell offers the best tool kit for success and access to the audience, without ongoing intrusion or excessive interference. My nightmare would be to sign to a traditional publisher only to find that they have too many other titles on their list for this year and I'd not have their full attention."
