How To Self-Publish For Free With Createspace By Jimmy Cla Y CreateSpace.com is a print On Demand company owned by Amazon. It's not well-known but, but is an easily accessible support for authors to publish their very own books for a minimal amount of money and yet receive the benefit of getting listed on Amazon -- in addition to having Amazon collect the cash from customers, ship the particular books to the customers and then send the author their money every month. Technology has dramatically altered the publishing world since i have started writing. Way during the old days the only way most authors could be published was to deliver their manuscript to the editor of a publishing company, the vast majority of the biggest and best in new york, and hope they were approved. Gradually it became extremely difficult for any writer to sell a magazine to a publishing house with no editor. The one exception was the science fiction/fantasy/horror field where editors tried to take care of the tradition of being open to primary manuscript submissions (but they got a back seat to mss. Submitted by recognized agents). Some companies required advantage of people wanting to publish books that could or would not be accepted by an ordinary writer. They were known as "vanity presses " because it was generally identified that the only reason for their services was to print up books the author was determined to find out published no matter what. Because these companies had minimum print runs of 1000 copies or even more, the author usually went to their own grave with 992 replicates in boxes in their basement, attic or garages. Some entrepreneurs figured out how to distribute books for a lot less overall, but they had to spend a lot of time on their own marketing -- selling them in the back of the area after speeches, by teleshopping, by consignment to neighborhood bookstores, and through labeled ads.

When I researched printing on demand companies a few years ago, however, the best and cheapest nevertheless required nearly $600 -- still a significant investment. With CreateSpace, Amazon has eliminated all charges but a few small ones. The only catch is that the author must produce it files themselves.
