Are you thinking of using Createspace ?
Are you looking for a createspace review?
This is my experience.
A few months back I decided to try the self publishing platform createspace. I set myself a realistic target, publishing my own book was something I like many had only dreamt about.
A real book
My reasons for using them was that they are a subsidery company of amazon.
I was so excited about this self publishing opportunity that I decided to create a short book (not one I would Market / publish) just to test the process and ensure it worked!
The only thing I will say is that it can be a little frustrating when you submit the book via your account, because frequently you get a message back from createspace saying that the margins are wrong or please enter xyz. ie it can be a little technical if you arent particularly great at following precise instructions.!
If I can offer some advice, read the instructions properly, don’t rush the process and you should be fine.
I was that excited I was rushing everything because I was so desperate to get my real printed book through the post! lol.
As far as book covers go, they do offer some templates but personally I would highly recommend popping over to fiverr.com and get someone to create one for you.
Also Living in the UK I had to wait for about four weeks for my proof to arrive.
If you are thinking about self publishing createspace are definitely worth using.
