Amazon’s New KDP Print Feature is Bad News for CreateSpace Users

Diane Tibert

The first news I heard about KDP Print was in an email from Amazon on February 15th. Since then, I’ve read articles, blog posts and comments about it and watched the praise given by Amazon for this service dwindle quickly.

In the email, Amazon announced they were making print book publishing easier for writers. They stated, “KDP prints your book on demand and subtracts your printing costs from your royalties, so you don’t have to pay any costs upfront or carry any inventory.”

That’s what CreateSpace does. Sort of. I believe CreateSpace takes the cost of the printing of the book from the sale price, then takes a cut of the royalties. Until I see the numbers and do the math, I am unsure which service will offer a better financial deal for authors.

The message also stated, “It also enables you to receive consolidated royalty payments for paperback and…

TWITTER OBSERVATIONS by MG WELLS

INSPIRE BG 4-17-17

Good Day to All and Thanks for your Kindness and Support. I am Grateful.  Twitter was a

lot different when I first joined. Now it it seems people have veered off into cliques and

much of the social has turned into Retweet frenzies, following others when you have

little in common, etc. In addition to being an author, I have diverse interests. I like to

inspire others in many ways. I’ve noticed many Twitter folks are not engaged so much

in the social aspect much anymore. I’ve met many lovely people on Twitter.  I have

had an interesting year so far and this new Twitter Trend does not surprise me. For

me, it’s about the character and quality of following and followers. Twitter often

unfollows, unretweets and unlikes posts and bans folks with strong opinions. I love

to learn and engage with followers as much as I can and also have a life to lead as

you all of you who are reading this. I look forward to meeting new and inspiring

friends on Twitter and bless all of those who have supported me over the years.

AMAZON REVIEWS WORLDWIDE by @MG_WELLS.

amazon reviews blog pic

You’d think Amazon would ROLLOVER All the Reviews to All the Web pages and post  Reviews in English. Independent Authors want their work to be seen worldwide. Many of the countries below speak English and lots of languages. I hope AMAZON will GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER and start ROLLING OVER ALL Reviews to their Web Pages. After all, they are making money off a lot of indie writers, who they treat like dirt most of the time. They also disallow reviews sometimes based on what they call BIAS, which is BS.

I Believe it is Important for Authors to Help Each Other. Amazon Owns Goodreads, so Review There Too. Amazon’s Lack of Professionalism creates A Lot of Extra Work for Reviewers, Most Who Don’t Want to Do This. I Really Don’t Want to and Will Since We Need to Support Each Other and Stop Complaining. A Lot of Cut and Pasting is Involved, so Be Prepared Cut and Paste from ONE Review to Simplify the process.

YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD IS THE SAME WHEN SIGNING INTO THE SITES.

Amazon Main Sites

Amazon websites are growing constantly. I have Found ALL AMAZON Web pages accept English Reviews. So Post Your Reviews to ALL the Amazon Webpages Listed Below. At least the first seven (7)countries. Some take longer to receive via email, which is why I was confused earlier. I have the red eyes o prove it. Consider getting Amazon’s KINDLE UNLIMITED Since Most Books You Review Include It.  The 1st 30 Days are FREE >>>
