CreateSpace Merging with Kindle Direct
If you’re an Indie Author (i.e., you’ve self-published your books) you’ll be interested to know that CreateSpace is joining forces with Kindle Direct Publishing. Both are connected directly to Amazon.com. However, that means all the books now in CreateSpace must be moved into Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP).
How will this affect your books and sales? Paperback-press.com notes that it will be a simple process to move your books, and you will be notified on your CreateSpace dashboard. Nothing else will change except the way you get paid. Instead of monthly, your royalties will come bimonthly.
Kindle Direct Publishing will also allow for purchasing ads to promote your books, as well as creating an Author Central page featuring you and your books.
To learn more, read on…..
The Springfield Writers’ Guild will continue to meet at the 1711 West Battlefield location of McAlister’s Deli (See map below). Join us at 11:00 a.m. for Mentor Hour as we read and critique members’ writings. The speaker joins us at 1:00 p.m. followed by a short business meeting.
