Createspace is dead. All hail Amazon :-P

Post by jacob » Tue Sep 18, 2018 6:10 am

As you may or may not know, the ERE book (paperback) very was (self-)published on createspace in 2010. Around that time---I forget whether it was slightly before or slightly after---createspace was bought by amazon.

These days createspace (which I've never had a problem with) will be deprecated and replaced with KDP (which I've had several problems with).

I just moved the pb version over. Or at least I think I did. LMK if you encounter any issues with the paperback version or see any weird stuff on amazon.

Such are the never ending issues of being your own publisher.

Any chance you might put out an Audible version?

I was thinking about an audio form too, but I'm not sure how well the visuals will translate, though they mostly have well written explanations.

The audio book idea has been floating around for a while.
