Sarah.....what about the front and/or back covers.....can they be color? Do we choose the interior color option for them also?

The choice between color or black and white refers to the interior only. Covers may be (and generally are) in color regardless of the interior choice.

Re: Coloring Book on CreateSpace?

Kitty...hello!

I'm still working on my coloring book...it is in review at present. I have a concern I'd like to ask you about....while waiting for them to contact me after reviewing the coloring book I notice the said the files would be sent to KDR (?) Kindle publishing........does it (the coloring book) go there even though it is not a "kindle" book but a coloring book? Is that just the publishing company? Once they receive the files does it then get listed (shown) on Amazon?

 

How are sales of your book doing?

 

Thank you for your kindnessand patience in answering my questions!!

Re: Coloring Book on CreateSpace?

I would decline the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) offer. Firstly because a coloring book on a Kindle doesn't have much point. Secondly because all it involves is CreateSpace sending your print-ready PDF files to KDP, where you'd have to complete the setup process. PDFs very rarely convert well to Kindle format, especially when images are involved.

Re: Coloring Book on CreateSpace?

Folks purchasing a coloring book for the Kindle may think they are getting an app, and be disappointed when they realize it isn't.  So I agree you shouldn't use KDP for coloring books.
