Publishing With CreateSpace

ZKS book cover ep 1

Publishing with CreateSpace was easy.

Now we wait for approval, order some proofs, and release the paper version out to the world!

C. Che and I have been talking for a while about releasing the first two Zombie Killing Stoners Episodes in print paperback form.

I did some research on POD publishers, including Lulu, Smashwords, and CreateSpace.

Lulu seemed to charge more for less for the print book. Photos of the books show a lesser quality, and if you use their free ISBN, Lulu becomes your publisher (what happened to “self-published?”).

Smashwords looked OK, but we are looking for a high quality printer with a low price for us to buy copies to sell at ComicCon and other events this year.

So we settled on publishing with CreateSpace. Their printed books looked the best, including the cover. Publishing with Createspace has other benefits, too. CreateSpace allows free library and bookstore distribution, as well as listing on Amazon. And their free ISBN belongs to you as the publisher.

And it was easy. They walk you right through each step.

Once the books are approved, we will order proof copies and release ZKS to the world (it’s true – Amazon distributes the books internationally).

We can’t wait!
