TCK Publishing started as a small independent publishing company in 2011. Today, it is an international publishing company specializing in mass market trade books. We publish fiction and non-fiction eBooks, print books, and audiobooks in all major genres and niches.
Our mission is to help our clients earn a full-time income from royalties. We do this by creating a comprehensive publishing and marketing strategy unique to each book and each author. We also pay authors 50% royalties—that’s about six times more than the average traditional publisher pays.
We’re nothing like the Big Five publishing companies, although we do compete with them.
Every publishing and marketing decision we make comes from our guiding principles:
TCK Publishing Guiding Principles
We believe authors make the world a better place by sharing stories, ideas, and experiences that allow us all to better understand this amazing world we live in. When we better understand the world we live in, we make better decisions. When we make better decisions, we make the world a better place. This creates a virtuous cycle whereby authors are constantly helping to improve our culture, our society, and our planet.
We believe the decisions of human beings hold the key to the future of our planet and life on Earth. It is up to us to make the right decisions to protect future generations of humans and to protect the incredible diversity of life on Earth, from the smallest bacteria to the largest animals like blue whales.
We believe doing the right thing is the best thing and a good business strategy.
We believe giving readers what they need and want how they want it at a fair price is the right thing to do.
We believe educated authors write the best books and make the best clients, so we strive to provide as much educational materials, tools, and resources as we can for authors, whether they choose to do business with us or not.
If you’re new here, we recommend you start with our free training course on how to become a full-time author.
TCK Publishing Mission Statement
“To build a sustainable book publishing company that helps as many authors as possible fulfill their dreams.”
Our mission is to help all of our clients earn a full-time income from book royalties. To do that, you will most likely need to write multiple books in a similar niche or genre, and we will focus on distribution, promotion, and marketing.
Because our goal is to help each of our clients earn a full-time income from their royalties, we want to make sure you are prepared for success from the beginning.
