Re: CreateSpace eStore

It's done automatically for you. Just go into the Sales Management area of your title setup and ensure the e-Store checkbox is checked.

Re: CreateSpace eStore

The link to your e-store is: http://createspace.com/XXXXXXX (replace the Xs with the title number as shown in your account dashboard).

 

Then you can paste this link anywhere you like on your website.

Re: CreateSpace eStore

Shouldn't it be Vietnam, not "Viet Nam" as shown in your estore?

 

"After graduating from Garfield High School he promptly entered the U.S. Army in 1967 during the height of the Viet Nam conflict"

 

And hope you don't mind, here's a little criticism:

 

"These are short poems of fantasy, love, war and things I have  experienced. I hope you enjoy them. I hope you can feel them. Several  are from my dreams and some were inspired by music. There are a few from  my novel which will be released in the near future."

 

I'd totally rewrite this to engage the reader more. "and things I have experienced" isn't very engaging. "I hope you can feel them" Huh? I know what you mean, but it doesn't make me want to read them. "There are a few from  my novel which will be released in the near future." and this just kinda makes me want to wait until the novel comes out rather than buy this!

 

I'd rewrite it to something like (it's not great, I'm not a poetry person!):

 

"A collection of short poems about love, war and other powerful subjects to stir your (insert some simile). Taking inspiration from the beautiful world around me, my poetry reflects my world. A world which I wish to slowly reveal to you as you read through this collection of emotion-driven poetry. (something else here!)"

Re: CreateSpace eStore

I've noticed that it's common for Americans to (incorrectly) write Vietnam as "Viet Nam". The rest of the world -- especially the Vietnamese -- write it as one word.

Re: CreateSpace eStore

I just published my first book with CS, TEXAS HOLD 'EM POKER TEXTBOOK

The eStore website is https://www.createspace.com/3486256

 

The steps to set up the eStore are as follows:

1. Go to MyAccount and click on the title of the book.

 

2. On the new page go to the 4th panel and click on Sales Information.

 

3. On the next new page fill in the different boxes and check marks appropriate

    for the book.  Then click on Save and Continue at the bottom of the page.

 

4. On the next new page enter the price of the book. And most important, click

    Edit in the CreateSpace eStore panel. When that panel opens, click on

    Customize Your eStore.

 

5. A new page opens with the URL (web location of your eStore) and places to

    add features.  Such as, a banner, Continue Shopping URL,

    Continue Shopping Text, colors for the background, the headline, the text and

    links.  This is where you make it your own. You should most certainly create

    an image for the banner.  In the Continue Shopping URL box,  I put the link to

    my website promoting the book:  http://www.poker-textbook.com and in the

    Continue Shopping Text box,  I put a description of what to expect at that

    site:   More info. about the book - contents, sample pages, etc.

 

6. At the bottom of this page be sure to click on Save Changes, and then click

    Complete on the next page that comes up. You can return to the page in

    step 5 and click on your URL to view your work. It can all be modified or

    edited again if needed.

Re: CreateSpace eStore

Despite reading every thread connected with eStore, looking for the little green mark, etc., I can't find mine.

 

Michelle mentioned Sales Channel on one thread. I don't have that listed. I can click on a book and see which places I've chosen for distribution, but nothing leads me to my eStore.

Re: CreateSpace eStore

No joy. When I Google CS with one of my book numbers, it takes me Not Found and suggests Authorhouse. Yeck!

 

I'll give you a call later, Steve.  Glad to hear Chapter Two is coming on well. Chapter One was excellent; a very strong character in Jack. I think you have a winner in the works.
