How to Publish CreateSpace books on Amazon for free!

Hello teachers,

Something I learned to do in retirement is to publish books on CreateSpace which is the self-publishing company of Amazon.com. It costs you NOTHING to do so, but of course, you and others can buy nice copies that look quite professional for a really inexpensive price.

I posted a chapter from my book "Travel Back to Your Roots" that explains how to publish a book on CreateSpace through Amazon for free. I publish family history books, photo books of my travels, and books for my grandchildren using CreateSpace. It costs the author NOTHING and you can purchase the book at a very reduced rate as the author.

If you are interested in learning the basics, go to my website and it is on my blog.

Go to www.donnagawell.com (my author website).

You can see what the covers look like and the pricing on Amazon.com and just type in my name: Donna Gawell.

Enjoy! Learn! Publish! Become an author!

BTW- there is some really interesting history on the site. I am so pleased that my writing is being read all around the world! I have readers from almost every country and continent (except Antarctica. What an honor!

Interesting! What is a ballpark cost for purchasing?

It depends on if you do BW or full color and the size. My family books are $4-6 for me to purchase as the author (full-color 8x11). I used to do Shutterfly, but this is much less expensive. Because the book is meant for family, the cost for a regular purchase is $12-15, full color and 8x11. I make almost no profit, but that wasn't my intent. Genealogy is all about sharing.
