CreateSpace, part of the Amazon.com, Inc., group of companies, has launched the CreateSpace Pro Plan, a new program that provides self-published authors and publishing professionals with access to lower book printing prices and increased royalties on Amazon.com and other channels via the CreateSpace Books on Demand service.
Members who want to self-publish using the CreateSpace Books on Demand service now have two options: they can continue to sign up at no charge using CreateSpace's Standard pricing plan, or they can take advantage of the new Pro Plan pricing model by paying a $50 one-time setup fee per title to gain access to increased royalty payments and deeply discounted print pricing. The program works on a title-by-title basis. Members can upgrade from Standard to Pro Plan at any time, allowing them to test demand for their book with Standard pricing and upgrade to Pro Plan pricing.
With both Standard and Pro Plan, CreateSpace members can distribute both black-and-white- and color-interior books on Amazon.com, their free CreateSpace eStore and their own website. Furthermore, members retain all copyrights to their work, set their own list price and have the option to use their own imprint name and ISBN or be assigned a free CreateSpace ISBN.
