I’m Paula Telizyn and I’m a book publishing expert. I spent almost twenty years working with Canada’s biggest digital children’s book publishing company, creating everything from animated content to educational games, and helping grow the business from one person in an office to a thriving global business.
Reading and writing have been the core of my personality since I could pick up a book, and I spent much of my adult life working in e-learning and publishing, helping educational businesses support literacy in schools and libraries around the world.
I’m the author of several books, the host of the Better Than Cheese podcast, and I have taught marketing to visual artists since 2018.
I’m a graduate of Humber College’s Post Graduate Creative Writing Program, with a focus on nonfiction writing, a graduate of Humber College’s Post Graduate Creative Book Publishing Program, and am currently in the University of Gloucestershire’s Creative and Critical Writing Masters Degree Program.
Seeing your own name on a book is an amazing experience, and I love helping others have that experience.

Luckily for me I found Paula, who is an expert on it all!
Paula has produced a cover that not only looks professional, but is absolutely true to my brand and surpassed all my expectations. And that's to say nothing of the rest of my book which, thanks to Paula's magic, now feels like a coherent work.
But it's not just the results that are impressive! It can be so hard to find someone to trust with your brand or your vision, but that has not been a problem. Paula is amazing to work with and has made the whole process, which I thought would be stressful, thoroughly enjoyable. So enjoyable, in fact, that I'm very much looking forward to the next project.
At first I found the process very daunting, however Paula guided me through the process enabling me to feel confident about self publishing in the future.
Without Paula as my mentor, my business would not be where it is today. Her knowledge is fathomless and her teaching skills second to none.
I cannot recommend Paula highly enough, especially in the world of publishing.
I was so pleased with my first experience working with Paula that I used her services twice more. First to assist with editing and proofreading of a manuscript for a new book, and secondly for some assistance with the query letter to submit to publishers. In both these instances Paula’s assistance was once again of excellent caliber. Her feedback and suggestions through the editing process were much appreciated, as was her insight and expertise. Her work with me on the query letter was also an extremely positive experience, with her taking my draft of the letter and working it into something very professional and submission ready.
More recently I also hired Paula to do some marketing ads for me for my first two books, and the designs she developed were incredible and well suited for use on all my social media platforms. All my interactions with Paula have been very positive and professional. I have no hesitation recommending her services to new and aspiring authors as well as experienced ones, looking for editing and/or marketing support. She has been a pleasure to work with, and I plan to continue using her services for all my future writing endeavours.
Paula took the time to adjust colours, fonts, margins and who even knows what a spine length is??? Paula does! She produced the book cover hiding in my head and gave me exactly what I was looking for.
I strongly recommend Paula for all your publishing needs. Nowhere can you find everything you need to make your book dreams possible in one easy, convenient place! I look forward to working with Paula for my up coming projects.
Paula is a delight to work with; friendly and available as well as being expert in all things marketing. She has taken me patiently through all the steps involved in publishing my novel and, with her help I have set up my email list.
The second book in my series is now with my editor and I’ll definitely be asking Paula for her help in designing and publishing it.
Paula, thank you. You are amazing!
