Amazon's CreateSpace cuts design and editing to authors
Amazon's CreateSpace division will be cutting staff in their editing, design and marketing divisions. The CreateSpace division has offered these services to self-publishers since its inception, but authors will now have to source these services elsewhere. The division will continue to offer the POD (print-on-demand) service to self-publishers, however. According to the Charleston Post and Courier,* 58 staff will be laid off in July.
At Delphian Books, we offer book editing and design services to self-publishers at reasonable prices and, once the book is press-ready, we can either print your book for you or set up a Print-on-Demand account for you to sell your books via Amazon's CreateSpace division. Your account and sales will then be in your hands and under your control.
Our in-house editor will proofread,
If you have a manuscript that you would like to self-publish, we would love to help.
