Great News! Amazon's CreateSpace Now Open to International Writers



By Helena Moran-Hayes 
Publish your book for free with Amazon CreateSpace


If you are an aspiring writer looking for a free way to publish your book, then this information will blow your mind. 



CreateSpace is the self-publishing service Amazon makes available for new writers at no cost.

And the good news is that now it’s open for the first time to writers of all genres, all countries, no matter your experience. 

You can set everything up literally in minutes and publish your book both in paperback and ebook formats. 

And best of all, you can reach an audience of millions of readers and earn high royalties from your books (royalties = book earnings!). 

What do you need to get started?


3 things only: 

  • Your book in a DOC file (Microsoft Word or similar)
  • A JPG image file for your book cover (if you don’t have one, you can choose one of their ready-made cover templates. They are pretty basic, but enough to get started)
  • An idea of what you want your book to look like (format and pages color). I personally recommend format, simply because it´s the standard size. If you check your bookshelves, you’ll see most of the books are this size. As for page color, I’d suggest cream over white. It just looks easier on the eye.

As you can see, it's fairly easy! 

If you’re curious about being a published author, click here to get started for free

(One last tip: When you are setting up your project in your control panel, choose the Guidedsetup. This will make it a breeze to create your book.)

Below you can see the paperback copy of my book.

 



Looks gorgeous, doesn’t it? And very high quality, too.

Good luck with your book!

  19. It is a great tool. With ISBN free in split second, designing suggestions, etc. With the help of my son I have already published a few titles already. And before the end of this year, I shall upload 5 more books. I compliment CreateSpace team for this unique experiment.

    I have given them a few suggestions to improve, as under :-

    1.. Printing should be allowed on Inside front and inside back covers too.
    2.. Colour printing should be charged not for the full book, but only the colou portion. This is possible in automatic four colour offset printing.
    3.. Create Space must also promote the books without charging the authors for promotion. Because more books they sell, the more profits they make, as also the authors. 
    4.. Resell racket and piracy must be checked. 
    5.. CreateSpace must negotiate Special Rates with courier companies.
    6.. Two printed copies should be sent free to the author for his/her record. 
    7.. Simultaneous printing arrangements with other countries like India must be made and books sold at local prices and dispatched locally.
