‘CreateSpace’ Is DEAD, Long Live Amazon’s ‘Kindle Direct Publishing’.
Yes, we all knew for over a year that it was going to happen, BUT it was still a shock — and very sad — when it happened.
I liked CreateSpace. We had our issues BUT they tried and there was ALWAYS somebody you could talk to at the end of a phone line. That is gone.
I hadn’t logged onto CreateSpace for months — not since July 2018! I have been busy proofing a 475-page book. Today, with the proofing finally coming close to an end, I logged on. I was confronted with a message that I HAD TO MIGRATE all my titles to KDP — using a tool they provided. That was a shock.
Since I had 18 titles to transfer it took some time. I haven’t checked whether it all worked ‘OK’. I am kind of despondent.
Not sure why Amazon felt the need to kill CreateSpace. I think it was a false economy.
