stores from just £295 inclusive

WITH the opening of Amazon's print-on-demand centres in the UK and continental Europe, adding to several in the USA serving customers in the Americas and Canada, we can offer authors an affordable way of producing and marketing high-quality paperback editions of their works.

The days of those vanity and other ‘publishers’ who charge well into four figures to supply a small number of indifferently printed copies are numbered, now that Amazon make it possible to meet customer orders one copy at a time. Amazon do not charge any set-up or stocking fees. Nor do they require you to buy a minimum number of copies.

Guaranteed Amazon store listings

Your POD edition is guaranteed to be listed for sale by the six Amazon bookstores serving the UK, USA, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, and by the Book Depository UK, and can be made available by CreateSpace at a trade discount to wholesalers, independent booksellers and libraries in the USA.

Only CreateSpace's printing cost per copy will be offset against your royalties and you set the suggested retail price. The full amount of royalties due will regularly be credited by Amazon to the bank account you designate.

You can choose from a wide variety of standard trade formats or specify your own, and of course benefit from the online and bookshop visual punch of a full-colour front cover, spine and back cover.

No purchasing commitment
You do not commit yourself to buying any copies but if you do, Amazon will charge you for them at near cost price plus shipping from the USA. And you are free to sell those copies on your website, to local booksellers and even to trade wholesalers.

Free review submission
We are now able to offer free submission of any POD paperback title we produce for review by the leading American weekly magazine Publishers Weekly.

Additional charges
The fee for a work running to more than 100,000 words will be pro rata to the standard fee of £295.00 inclusive.

An index can be produced for non-fiction works at an additional charge of from £95.00.

Where a title's content includes photographs, illustrations or diagrams, we make an additional of £3.00 per item.

Manuscripts containing a significant amount of foreign language content, or technical, scientific or other specialised content will be subject to a supplemental charge, subject to sight of the ms.
