Re: [CS/KDP] CS MOVING TO KDP

Ah, so very sad. I loved Createspace and did very well there. I'll always be grateful to them for being a place where i could learn to do the self-publishing thing without up-front costs. Now I can move to IngramSpark with the learning curve behind me. It's still a mystery to me why KDP can take Jap...

Re: [Xinxii] I guess Xinxii is dead

When CS started its decline I googled around and found some alternate companies to check out. Lulu doesn't distribute non-English titles. Publishdrive looks good but only does ebooks. XInxii looks like they have a functional website but it seems to be abandoned. I'm pretty happy with IngramSpark and...

[Xinxii] I guess Xinxii is dead

Hi everyone,

Maybe this is common knowledge, but just thought I'd post anyway.

I uploaded some ebooks to Xinxii 7 weeks ago. They are still in the queue for their review.

I have emailed them a few times, and over a month later, no response. So, RIP Xinxii.

Re: [Ingram Spark] Switching

I moved all my titles from CS to IS. It went fairly smoothly. In my case I had to get new ISBN numbers and replace the copyright pages (because they had the old ISBNs). Because of the ISBN issue I did all the submissions through the IS interface instead of moving them directly from CS. The setup wen...

[INGRAM SPARK] Promo code for July 2018?

Hi everyone,

Doe anyone know if IS has a promo code for July? The current one expires in a few days. I didn't see an email from them but may have missed it.

Re: [INGRAM SPARK] Espresso sales

Hmmm... Checking their catalog, here: http://ondemandbooks.com/publisher_program.php Note that they have three categories: publishers with less than 100 books (US), publishers with less than 100 books (non-US), and publishers with more than 100 books. I checked all 3 categories and didn't find my CS...

Re: [INGRAM SPARK] Espresso sales

I'm not sure, I'm guessing they don't but I've never really been clear on the EDC retailers.

There isn't a EBM near where I live, but if you do have one printed, can you report back here?

Re: [INGRAM SPARK] Espresso sales

Hi Sarah, Thanks for adding the tags, I'll remember to add them in the future. The Espresso sales are part of Global Connect. The header on the report is: "GLOBAL CONNECT/ESPRESSO SALES REPORT" About 15% of my CS sales came from EDC, but I was never really sure where they came from exactly other tha...

[INGRAM SPARK] Espresso sales

Hi everyone, I'm in the process of moving my books from Createspace to IngramSpark. It has been a smooth process, although it would have been smoother if I had used my own ISBNs from the beginning instead of CS's free ones. One surprising thing has come of this: I'm getting a lot of Espresso sales. ...
