Do you have a book in you would love to bring to market? Or are you ready to launch your book?
Wondering how to have your books printed without it costing you and arm and a leg?
Whether you already have self-published or desire to publish in the future, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to now have books printed on demand taking away the risk involved with traditional book printing options.
Come learn exactly how CreateSpace has revolutionized self-publishing and why you should know about them … and how to get started. You will be led step-by-step through the process in this workshop!
CreateSpace is an online platform (affiliated with Amazon) that provides tools and services to publish your book, CD, and DVD while making them available to millions of potential buyers.
While other self-publishing companies exist (i.e. iUniverse, Lulu, Authorhouse, Tate, xlibris.com, BRIOPrint, InstantPublisher, etc.), their costs for print-on-demand services and publishing are likely significantly higher than CreateSpace. Moreover, authors using CreateSpace receive up to 70% royalties in ALL of Amazon’s markets (US, Europe, India, etc.) and have the option to convert their book to Kindle and listed on Amazon for FREE!
