The Hideous Secrets of CreateSpace

I’ve been researching this service lately – any of you guys have any personal experience? I’ve seen a few horror stories and a few glowing recommendations, so I’m more than a little curious.

I’m still a long way from publishing anything — but—-

  1. I’ve published some of my books with them. I like that it’s super easy and FREE to use. I like free stuff. You get an ISBN number and they have a great cover creator program if you want to make your own cover that is also free. My books turned out very professional and you can check them out on Amazon and see how they turned out if that helps. I had a good experience and would recommend them to other people. My books are listed on Amazon but no one has ever bought one from there. I bought copies from my createspace account and sold them myself because you can buy them there for almost 10 bucks cheaper and you can make like a $5 profit verses $2 though the Amazon website. You can also sell them in kindle format, which is also free.

    1. Great review, HN. I’ll check out your Amazon page as well. I’m a huge book-snob and my mom ran a print-shop for years. What’s the quality like of the paper and the binding?

      1. I thought it was fine I didn’t see any problems with it. It’s just like any other paperback you’d could buy at the store. The inside pages aren’t really thin, they’re more like construction paper thickness.

    2. Awesome! Tell you what, next payday I’M BUYING YOUR DANG BOOK OFF AMAZON. I’d like to have a copy anyway, I can check out the quality, and I’m your first Amazon customer!
