CreateSpace Shutting Down


Amazon started KPD Print some time last year, I think. Maybe a little earlier.

It always looked exactly like CreateSpace. Unlike CS, however, it allows author copies to be printed in Europe. Big game changer for me.

Everyone expected that eventually, KDP Print would replace CreateSpace. Which is sad, because CS had awesome customer service, and we all know that KDP does not. emoticon

Now we know that time is running out for CreateSpace. And it is time to shift your print books over from CS to KDP Print before the mass exodus. Fortunately, that is fairly easy.

David Gaughran has tested it:

]How To Switch From Createspace to KDP Print

Good to know. "Don't even bother with CreateSpace." Got it.

Re: KDP Print and CreateSpace


Yup. Unfortunately.

When I set up the print project for "Dragon Prey" today, it will be with KDP Print...

And it's official now:

David Gaughran is sharing his views about what's going on.

]CreateSpace Closing – It’s Official

I need to get my ass in gear and move my books. Which will be a pain because the descriptions are different.
