Author Testimonials

This whole publishing experience has been nothing but positive and a lot easier than I thought it would be! My project manager was nice and helpful and the illustrator did such an amazing job! I'm very glad I published with Tellwell for my first book!

Tellwell's packages are well priced and you get full royalties. I had to put a rush on my book to get it out on time for Christmas and they did a great job and worked fast! Thanks Tellwell, you are amazing:)

Tellwell made it enjoyable for me to self-publish my first children's book. They were patient with my million questions regarding a process that was completely foreign. My editor was amazing. The experience exceeded my expectations!
