From CREATESPACE to KINDLE DIRECT PUBLISHING
Createspace is coming to an end (this month)
If you have published paperback titles using Createspace, it is time to think about moving your books to Amazon KDP. (Kindle Direct Publishing)
As you may know, Amazon is merging its two print-on-demand publishing services. CreateSpace is becoming part of Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP).
Originally, KDP was for Kindle eBooks, while CreateSpace was for paperbacks (and videos and even audio).
However, in recent months KDP has added print-on-demand publishing for print books. It has slowly evolved, and now matches CreateSpace in terms of quality, service, and prices (with a few subtle exceptions). Overall, in a few ways, KDP’s print-on-demand is a little above and beyond CreateSpace (it wasn’t originally, but now that it has finished evolving, it is now).
Our authors should have received an email about this. Go sign in to your KDP account asap.
