Createspace moving to Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP)

Amazon has just announced that Createspace Books will now be moving to Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). A new notice has been posted to Createspace user dashboards informing us that Createspace is merging into KDP Print. Amazon has also launched a new page in the KDP help pages that explains how this merger will affect authors, and how they can move their titles from Createspace to KDP Print.  This transition needs to be implemented in the next few weeks or it will automatically merge in 60 days.

Creatspace Moves to KDPWhat does this mean to YOU:
– It is still Amazon
– It is still the same printers, quality and distribution
– Still Print on Demand
– KDP delays royalty payments for 60 days

As your publisher, we are happy to help you to make this transition easier for you. We can merge your books for you.  In the next few weeks, Createspace is allowing certain authors to merge the books with a pop up when you log in.  Follow the steps on the link below to merge your book, when you get the popup after logging into Createspace.
