My First Box Set & My First KDP Paperback
« on: July 11, 2017, 11:32:44 AM »
I've just created my first e-book box set and I've also made it available in paperback, my first go with the KDP Paperback function.
I've started a series of 3 blogs about the process at https://sally-jenkins.com/2017/07/11/creating-an-ebook-and-paperback-box-set-part-1/

Anybody else used KDP paperbacks or are you sticking with Createspace for the time being?

Been tempted but I've read it is a one-way ticket. Odd, since Createspace is owned by Amazon, unless that has changed. Maybe I'll try KDP PB with my next book. Please pass along your experiences with the box-set. Good luck.

Main downside of KDP paperback is not being able to buy discounted author copies. But since the Brexit vote and consequent exchange rate shift this has become less cost effective in the UK (we have to buy in dollars & pay shipping from the US).
