Bryden Bordley Hyde. Billy, this type of question can be easily answered or already has been in the CreateSpace Community forum over the years. I am in the final process of self-publishing my first book. Your article really helped my come to a decision about selecting Createspace expanded distribution.
Can you shed insights on my final decision of should I put a price on the barcode of my book. Can you advise? Are there any options for the cover material or is it all one weight and stock? I would love to use a brown stock with more tooth for my book cover. I no longer print through CS mainly because of, to me, their poor quality covers. This topic is discussed often in the CreateSpace Community.
Their propensity for delaminating is also a major concern. Are you able to publish hard cover books via CreateSpace? What about unique books, like inspirational journals, that may contain mostly blank pages? Do these types of books also require an ISBN? Angela, CS does not offer hard cover books. Other self-publishing companies like BookBaby and Ingram Spark do. BookBaby offers quality hard covers with very short run capabilities as few as books for good pricing but not distribution. Your best bet for hardcovers with distribution is Ingram Spark. All books require an ISBN.
Clodagh, Joel and others will know more about Scrivener than I do. By doing this, you can then supply your own ISBN next time. All the comments and advice here are very helpful. I have just published on Kindle, which was technically challenging. I am somewhat daunted by having to do it again for Create Space. Two questions. Someone on a Goodread forum recommended Scrivener for formatting as being much easier. Thanks in advance.
Looking for better ideas if you have any. Scott, we have thousands of authors using our pre-designed book templates to print at CreateSpace. Book Templates for Microsoft Word. Joel, the templates are the problem…using them in my experience produced a different result in the digital reviewer, one that did not match what I did in the template. I ended up editing one line at a time to adjust things through pages, only to settle for the best of the worst. I have never had a problem with the Createspace cover templates.
I always use the digital proofer. Scott, those that work with CreateSpace on a regular basis simply ignore the digital reviewer, the Interior Reviewer IR. It is usually not accurate, and most of the Members on CS, I think, basically just skip this step and go on to order a proof. If I did that, I would be up to over a hundred proofs of gobbledygook, i. So the successful have abandon all but the PDF proof…guess I should too. Hello, I have a book which I want to publish.
But it is NOT a print-ready file. Layout and typesetting needs to be done. Kindly explain. Hello again. I have another question, and I do not want to proceed until I find out an answer. I hope someone can help. That is. Can a local bookstore buy 10 copies from Amazon and sell them at their shop. It does not restrict your sales, it just lists Amazon as your publisher. That will not matter to majority of people, ever. Thank you for the article and all the helpful comments. I live in the U. S but my book is written in Spanish and, definitely, for a market in Spain.
That is: Will the books be printed in this continent or in Europe? Yes, you do. I wondered the same thing at first I just inserted them in headers, with placement on the left for even numbers and on the right for odd. That way, your page one which would fall on the right… has it in the upper right corner and so on. I also made my numbers smaller font size than the rest of the text, but that was just personal preference.
Best of luck! This may be a silly question, but does CS number the pages of your book or do you have to do it in the word document you upload to them? And if we DO have to do it ourselves, does it go in the page header or does that put it outside CS print range? Thanks so much for any help!! Jodie, you might want to check out the Word templates here that make this process a whole lot easier and more predictable:. Is it several hours, or is it longer, because they say nothing about it being ready for review. Of course, shipping to Canada can be sort of fun.
Obviously, the law was written with traditional publishing in mind, where the publisher receives their initial shipment before the book is released to the public. But on the whole, I like Createspace, and the process of publishing to paperback is pretty simple! Great information provided here! Thank you to all. This is exactly what I need right now. I am currently in the process of self-publishing my first book historical fiction and have been struggling with deciding on which way to go as far as a printer.
Has anyone here ever used CS to publish in paperback and someone else for hardcover? Thanks again to Joel for the site, Lyn for the article, and Will and everyone else for their input. Createspace only has one type of cover material. Its trade paperback, soft cover. Profit margins with print on demand are already fairly low. So same margin as going with traditional publisher, but without all the free promotion and marketing they would give you.
Will, I second what Joel said. Your input is invaluable. I had not heard that Lightning Source is better for color works. Good to know. JJ, I had no idea color costs so much more, but it makes sense. The color printing process is bound to be more expensive. May need to rethink that. The photos might not look so good in black and white. The cost of color production with POD will cause a high retail price for a book. I only submit black and white fiction pages with no images so the print on demand charges for me are very reasonable.
And I agree with you, they are better looking and are of a more appropriate size for the back of the book. I think authors should put the retail price in the bar code and print it in USDs on the back of the book.
What do you think? It seems to me that it allows for the book to be scanned easily at indie bookstores, for example and for the retail price to easily be seen by those potential purchasers holding a physical copy. Hi Will, and thanks for your generous contributions to the discussion going on here. However, this makes no difference at retail, nor does the inclusion of your price within the bar code.
I have all the files set to go. I am curious about the difference between the CS way and the LS way, maybe a test of the LS ecosystem is in order here. My biggest surprise having just gone through my first POD experience is the cost of color pages. My project was a non-fiction book relying on good color pictures to explain various steps in a process.
With 50 images, the color edition of the book is probably too expensive for just about everyone. My solution was to do a second edition of the exact same book, except that is in Black and White. Far cheaper but not as pleasant to look at and the pics are not as easy to understand. But waaay cheaper. But I found my solution to be fairly workable. It may be vanity, but I found the barcode image to be much nicer looking than the white block Amazon does. Plus I can set the price that appears in the bar code.
Finally, if in Photoshop, remember to flatten your image before you save it as a pdf. Flattening hugely shrinks the size of the image and makes it MUCH easier to comply with CreateSpace cover file size requirements. Slainte JJB. JJ keep in mind the paper used on black and white books is not the same as the paper used in color printing. What you suggest is virtually impossible although it may not be for long! Thanks, Danielle! My hour flew by. Great recommendation, Danielle! Thanks for sharing that with us. Come join the fun! I used CreateSpace when I self-published my first novel in February.
I found it fairly easy to use. I did not choose the expanded distribution option for the same reasons others have already mentioned. I used the book cover template provided by CreateSpace and uploaded the cover I created in Adobe Photoshop. I like how it all turned out and will do it again for the next book.
Yes, the CreateSpace Community is very helpful. I got some basic questions answered there and keep meaning to go back and ask for marketing advice. Michael: From what you described, I would guess that you probably tangled with the Interior Reviewer, too. After it came out I would have files rejected that had previously flown through Review and then also have to deal with the hassle. As you can imagine, this caused quite a few comments within the CreateSpace Community of serious self-publishers.
But, I would try them again and I think those roadblocks are gone.
