Re: [INGRAMSPARK] Ships from and sold by Amazon?

Why is that? I have to assume IS has its own printers. Yes, IS uses the Ingram production facilities. But Amazon is the retailer. They are the ones making the sale. Then they *source* through IS. So you really want all of your listings to state "Ships from and sold by Amazon." Otherwise it would be...

Re: [D2D] New POD for paperbacks

On D2D's FAQ, I see this: ... So it looks like they don't do paperbacks anymore. Joe is talking about an announcement they made a week or so ago about starting a beta program for their own print on demand ability. There is nothing official on the website. You have to find a link directly to the ann...

Re: [POD] Print-on-Demand publishing for non-Latin alphabets

I'm going to play with their cover template thingee, which will likely insist on putting the barcode on my front cover, but if they allow for uploading ready-made cover files, I'll try to get away with moving the bar code. The InDesign cover template includes the barcode as a separate object so the...

Re: [POD] Print-on-Demand publishing for non-Latin alphabets

Have you looked into IngramSpark? A quick search didn't turn up anything regarding supported languages, but you could contact them to see if they have a list.

Re: [Createspace to KDP] Changing title

You cannot change the title of a published book. You'd have to republish it as a new book, with a new ISBN.

Re: [PRESS KIT] Focus on author or book?

This might help. Joanna Penn is well known in self-publishing.

Re: [CS] My forum profile was deleted

A harsh reality is that CS is closing, going out of business, disappearing. The big question is "when?" From the CreateSpace Community Homepage announcement: "Moving books. We've created an easy way for you to move your entire catalog in just a few steps, but it's not available to everyone yet. Ove...

Re: [CS] My forum profile was deleted

Yeah, I've noticed that about the KDP forum too. Horribly snarky and mean. Kboards is definitely more professional, from what I've seen, but also a much more broad range of topics, so I don't usually read very many threads there each day.

Re: [CS] My forum profile was deleted

Apparently you're not alone. There's another user who managed one post though his phone (where he was still logged in) that he no longer seemed to have an account when he attempted to access it through his laptop. His wife just replied to the thread that his access through his phone is now gone as w...

Re: [Introduction] Createspace Victim

Welcome! IS can also move your CS books over behind the scenes, for free, if you ask them to.
