I have used Capital letters, which perhaps I shouldn't. What do you all think? I probably wouldn...

Re: [Ingram Spark] Switching

Try contacting IngramSpark. I'm not sure they charge the title setup fee when you transfer titles to them from CreateSpace.

The email stipulates "Free title setup on print or ebooks until July 31, 2018! Use Promo Code SPARKS."
The code is actually SPARK5 - that's a number five, not as S.

Re: [Ingram Spark] Switching

If you own all the ISBNs, you can easily transfer the titles to IngramSpark. They have a process in place with CreateSpace to facilitate this move.

Re: [INGRAM SPARK] Promo code for July 2018?
