TCK Publishing Services for Nonfiction Authors
TCK Publishing is a full-service independent book publisher, and we love publishing nonfiction. Our founder, Tom Corson-Knowles, is the author of 27 bestselling nonfiction books in the self-help and business spaces. We have plenty of experience in making the most of your nonfiction manuscript! We can publish your work in eBook, paperback, and audiobook formats in 90 days or less (assuming your manuscript is fully edited and ready to go).
If your manuscript needs developmental editing, content editing, copyediting or proofreading before it’s ready to publish, we will let you know.
When you submit your nonfiction book for publishing consideration, our editors will review your manuscript and provide you with detailed comments and constructive feedback so you can see exactly how to improve your writing.
We will not rush publishing projects just to hit a deadline if the book is not ready. We pride ourselves on getting your book into readers’ hands quickly, but we want to make sure we get the job done right first and foremost.

Do you accept unsolicited nonfiction book manuscripts?

Where will you publish my nonfiction book?
We publish nonfiction books on Amazon Kindle in the U.S., UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, Brazil, France, Japan, India, and many other countries. Print books will be available throughout North America, Europe, parts of Asia, and possibly other countries if our distribution partners are interested in carrying your book. Audiobooks will be published in the U.S. on Audible.com and will be available to customers internationally from Audible, Amazon, and iTunes, the largest digital audiobook retailers in the world.
How much will I get paid for publishing my nonfiction book?
We pay our authors 50% of net royalties and all payments received for subsidiary rights and licensing deals. If we earn $10,000 in royalties for your book, you get paid 50% of that amount, or $5,000. If we earn $5,000 for a five-year deal to license French language rights for your book, you earn 50% of that amount, or $2,500. It’s just that simple: for every dollar your book brings in, you get half (which is 3–5x more than what a traditional publisher pays).

I previously self-published my book, or my book was published by another publisher. Can I switch to TCK Publishing?
Yes, assuming your publishing contract allows you to switch, we can republish your book and begin marketing it for you. If you self-published your book, you can definitely switch to us right away. We have had many clients switch from self-publishing to TCK Publishing and can make the process quick, easy, and painless for you. If you published your book with another publisher, you’ll need to look at your publishing contract to see if you still own the rights to your work. If you have questions about whether or not a previous publisher controls the rights to your work, feel free to reach out to us and we’ll do our best to help.
How do I submit my nonfiction manuscript?
Simply email us your typed manuscript in any digital format. We prefer Microsoft Word files in .doc or .docx format, but we can accept PDFs, .epub, .mobi, and a variety of different file types. If your manuscript is in a different file format, just contact us and we can find a way to work with it or convert it to a workable file format. If your manuscript was typed on a typewriter or handwritten, we will definitely want to get it typed into a word processor on a computer so that we can edit and publish it for you.
