An end to Createspace in-house publishing services
Createspace is now telling authors that the company will no longer be providing their in-house publishing services. These included editorial, text formatting, cover design, and other services.
They sent an email yesterday to their current clients, informing them of the upcoming changes to their services:
You recently completed a design service with our CreateSpace Services team. We’re emailing to inform you that we’ll no longer offer or fulfill any paid professional services, including text or design changes to your cover or interior files. If you want to make changes to your design files, those changes must be purchased and submitted no later than March 15, 2018, and completed by April 20, 2018. No changes can be made to these files after April 20, 2018.
This change does not impact the availability of published titles. Amazon remains committed to helping authors realize their goals through self-publishing high quality books. Visit CreateSpace or Kindle Direct Publishing to learn more about the tools and resources available to authors.
The services provided by Createspace were not widely used. They were generally seen as expensive and the quality was inconsistent.
