Publishing the Book
With traditional book publishing, the publishing company essentially buys the right to publish the author’s book and pays the author a portion of the royalties from their book sales. Here at Type & Tell, we believe that authors should be able to enjoy 100% of the profits made by their book, so we aim to give writers as much freedom as possible over their own self-publishing process. While you retain the full extent of the profits generated by your book, you’ll simply decide on your desired T&T package and we’ll get to work.
Another benefit of self-publishing with Type & Tell is that you can become an officially published author without having to purchase a huge print run which might not sell. Self-publishing requires an author to use their own funds in the production, marketing, and distribution of their book. Type & Tell’s packages have been tailored to meet the ambitions of a variety of self-publishing authors and businesses, with each client able to select from one of the three publishing packages available:
T&T Basic is £199. It allows authors to print and publish. It's fast and straightforward and prepares the author’s book for print-ready files. You’ll receive five print copies of your book to either keep or distribute, as well as having your ISBN purchased and legal deposit made for registration with the British Library.
T&T Plus is £499. This incorporates all of the features of the T&T Basic package, as well as an eye-catching cover design, worldwide print and distribution of your e-book throughout all major bookstores and online retailers, as well as ten author copies.
T&T Pro is £3399. This publishing package has been tailored for professional authors who wish to create a high-quality book, inside and out. It comes with a host of additional features including premium cover design, full editorial services, marketing materials, global distribution and a personal publishing mentor who has also self-published within your own niche.
