Re: Amazons move to remove Create Space

Canada is unusual in this respect. Most of the world has to pay for ISBNs.

I've been with CreateSpace a long time, and when I started, they didn't even do Kindle.

They still don't (and never have, unless you're talking about their paid ebook formatting service, but they still don't handle the ebook publishing even in that case). All they do is send the print-ready PDFs over to KDP (or the file you paid them to format), where you must still log in to complete publishing. And PDFs very rarely convert well to ebook format.

Re: Amazons move to remove Create Space

Sarah,

 

OK, to clairfy....when I started with CreateSpace, they didn't even offer that service. I wasn't aware that there were problems with it.  I loaded all of my own Kindle books directly with amazon, and remember that it was difficult to do. I did edit two books recently and both of them wanted to be on CreateSpace, and I believe one of them let CreateSpace do their Kindle but I never got any feedback about it.

I would like to say "Neener Neener" but then I'd have to apologize and perpetuate the Canadian stereotype so I'll just sit here in my igloo watching hockey instead.

Down under we have to pay for our own refrigeration, too. The world is inherently unfair.

Re: Amazons move to remove Create Space

Up here in Fairbanks, Alaska we can use the front porch as  a refrigerator for 6 - 8 months of the year.  I guess I should say "freezer" though, rather than refrigerator.  Right now it's a freezer out there on the porch - it's 11 F, which means about -12 C.
