PSA Fellow Aussie Authors

Ahhh the Amazon saga continues *sigh*

If you have published books through Createpace and have not yet moved them/had them automatically moved across to KDP, it might be a good idea to order some printed copies from Createspace prior to the move. I’ve just tried to order author copies but was unable to because deliveries ‘cannot be made to Australia from the US store’

Apparently it is still possible for authors and readers in Australia to order books from the US Amazon store, it just requires some communication between the author and Amazon’s support team. I’m waiting to hear back about the next step, but the responses I’ve received have been prompt and helpful in the past. I’ll update when I know more.

I just don’t want other Aussie authors to get stuck unexpectedly, especially when you’ve got upcoming events you need stock for!

Setting Up Your Kindle Direct Publishing Account

Setting up a book on Kindle Direct Publishing is a very simple process and easily self-guided. In this video, I will go through the main steps, and will show you how to fill in the rest of the details yourself.
Remember, if you are doing this for the first time, I would highly recommend going through the set-up process with a ‘mock’ book first, so that you can familiarise yourself with the steps, and make the set-up of your real book much easier.

I hope the information in this post has been helpful for you. Make sure you FOLLOW this blog so you never miss out on my writing and publishing tips!

Setting Up A Book On CreateSpace

Setting up a book on CreateSpace is a very simple process and easily self-guided. In this video, I will go through the main steps, and will show you how to fill in the rest of the details yourself.
Remember, if you are doing this for the first time, I would highly recommend going through the set-up process with a ‘mock’ book first, so that you can familiarise yourself with the steps, and make the set-up of your real book much easier.

First, of course sign in to your new CreateSpace account. You will then arrive at your Member Dashboard, where you will click ‘Add New Title’.

You will then be prompted to enter the Title Information of your book. This will include:

  • Book Title & Author
  • ISBN (CreateSpace assigned or independently sourced)
  • Interior (Upload)
  • Cover (Upload)

You will then be prompted to complete the set-up of your book and send you files for review. You will also be able to select your Distribution Channels, including the Amazon worldwide stores at which your book will be available. There will also be some Sales and Marketing information and options for you to consider.

I hope the information in this post has been helpful for you. Make sure you FOLLOW this blog so you never miss out on my writing and publishing tips!
