We provide all required ISBNs.

When you publish a book with Tablo, we assign ISBNs for you. A single ISBN typically costs a new author $150, but as a publisher, Tablo can include them in your publishing plan. If you already have an ISBN, that's ok. You can supply your own too.

We format and typeset your manuscript.

When you create a book inside Tablo's writer, our platform will typeset and format your book for eBook and for print, in the theme of your choice. Tablo transforms your writing into a professional, publish-ready book with the click of a button.

You keep all of your rights.

We're authors at Tablo, so we care about your rights. Tablo doesn't seek anything — only a non-exclusive permission to publish on your behalf. You'll always maintain the full rights to your book, so you can publish, cancel or change services at any time.

You keep all of your royalties.

You'll receive 100% of your sales proceeds, after retail commissions and printing costs. When you sell a book on bookstores, the print cost is automatically deducted from your royalty, so you'll earn a profit on every copy that you sell.

Blurring the lines between self-publishing and traditional publishing.

Tablo is the only self-publishing platform that also offers traditional representation to authors.

We care deeply about disrupting the traditional publishing industry and supporting the next generation of great writers. That's why we started Tablo Tales, a publishing imprint that offers traditional representation to the most extraordinary Tablo authors. Tablo represents authors like NYT Bestseller Claire Messud and Instagram sensation Liz Climo. We believe that this model, where self-publishing and traditional publishing work together, is the future of our industry.
