Monday Plug – CreateSpace

 

I am so happy that I found CreateSpace. It is such a great way to self-publish. It is very affordable, and easy to use. Not only does it give you a way to publish books yourself, but music and film, too. It is print-on-demand, so you don’t have to pay for inventory, and printing costs are deducted from the price of the product. Royalties are decent, and you set the price you want to sell for. CreateSpace also provides your book with a free ISBN, so you don’t have to buy them yourself. I like that.

CreateSpace offers editing and other publishing services, but they are not required in order to publish. You do need to purchase a proof copy of every product, but it is well worth it when you use the proof to catch errors. For higher royalties, you also have to option of purchasing a pro-plan for each product. This also pays for itself. With the pro-plan you pay less for books you have printed for yourself, meaning that you make more off of selling them in person.

For anyone looking to self-publish, I recommend CreateSpace.
