If you were a member of CreateSpace, you were likely shocked when they announced in August of 2018 that they were merging with KDP. They gave no notice. Accounts were moved over automatically. The KDP website crashed. Massive amounts of members lost their books, royalties, and struggled with a hot mess transition to the new company. We were told all CreateSpace books would print the same with KDP. However, cover creator is different with KDP. Now the big question – What will it be like when I am ready to publish a new book with KDP?
My first 6 times publishing were with CreateSpace. I’ve since published 3 books with KDP. All 3 happened to be published on the same day, October 29th of 2018. Some things were the same. Others were different. I hope this blog is helpful to you in knowing what to expect if you are a former CreateSpace member who will now be using KDP.
What is the same with KDP as CreateSpace?
What is different with KDP for the better?
What is different with KDP for the worse?
