[CREATESPACE] New publisher questions about Createspace and ISBN

Post by Pamper10 » Mon Feb 26, 2018 2:17 pm

Hello there I'm based in London UK in the process of publishing a book with Createspace. Does anyone know if there is a way to see what the cover actually looks like before it is printed. I have submitted it without space for an ISBN and it was accepted. Also which ISBN would work best for selling the book online and in bookshops? Cheers

Whether you uploaded your own cover or used Cs's Cover Creator, you can view the full-size cover when you navigate to the cover section on your book's dashboard. Whether you have supplied a space or not, CS will place the ISBN in the position they allow; bottom right. If you use CS's free ISBN, you may only use that with their company. If you wanted to use say, Ingram Spark down the track, you would have to supply your own ISBN. It all depends on your ambitions. Naturally, if you own your ISBN, you will have more control over it. If you do not think you will be using another POD, then a free ISBN from CS will be adequate.
Good luck,
