We help authors give books life.

Our aim is to produce attractive, well-designed books at a low cost for authors looking to self-publish. From cover to cover, The Troy Book Makers can transform your manuscript into a skillfully designed and bound book. Whether your book is headed for the local bookstore or into the hands of your loved ones—you can select just the services your book needs.


Take the time to write the book you've been dreaming of, or dust off that manuscript that has been hiding under the bed.


Contact our small, knowledgable staff about your project. We'll get you an itemized quote including only the services you need.


After receiving a quote, and reviewing our resources, you just need to carefully review your files and send them along for formatting.

What our authors are saying:

Allan Lenzner

...You guys should know that writers who pick up the book, fan through it, fondle it, say whoever did this did it well. Everyone at TBM should be proud. I am.

The book looks wonderful! I'm so proud of it. [Jessika] and TBM have done a terrific job, and I couldn't be happier to be working with you. I look ahead to publication of remarkable books and many successes together.

Michael DeMasi

A first-time book author has lots of questions for the publisher. So many, it would be understandable if their incoming emails were eventually blocked. That never happened at The Troy Book Makers.

Thanks to TBM, my first book, Spandex & Black Boots, essays from an abundant life, has been a success and something I am proud of! I look forward to publishing my next book with TBM.
