Createspace is an affiliate of Amazon.com and that relationship will benefit you, the author/artist/creator, to get exposure on the largest book retailer on the internet. In my eBook, How to Create and Publish your own Comic Book, I walk you through the process of setting up an account and showing you how easy it is to publish your work.
I personally use and recommend Createspace if you are a casual author looking for an avenue to publish your work.

Being that Amazon is also affiliated with the Kindle and Kindle Fire, you can also make a digital version of your book and have available for download on any Kindle or Tablet with a Kindle App.
With a small upgrade fee (per title) your book can be made available to schools, libraries and large retail bookstores. I recently found my book listed in Barnes and Noble’s website. That was pretty cool. I didn’t even know it was there until I did a Google Search and it turned up.

My First Attempt, Before Createspace…
Back in College, I wrote/drew my first Comic Book…(I’m going to call it a Graphic Novel, because its quite a bit longer than a standard Comic Book) and did not have the slightest idea on how to bring it from my drawing board to the bookshelf. This was back in the 90s and the internet was relatively new. The only Amazon that existed was a tropical rainforest in Brazil.
So my only option was to take my drawings to Kinko’s, make some copies and get the book spiral bound. The result was what you see below.
Original unpublished SPECTRE Book, written by hand and bound at Kinkos.
Now, when I was finished with that project, I thought it looked pretty cool. But it didn’t look like a professionally printed book that I would find on a bookshelf at my local Barnes and Nobel. But what I did do was take this spiral bound book, which displayed many months of my hard work, and mailed it to three Comic Book Publishers that indicated that they accept and publish work from amateur authors/artists.
A few weeks later, I got some responses back in the mail. Each of them praised the ambitious nature of my work. They also complimented my artwork…but each of them also told me that this book was not for them. You can praise me all you want, but I didn’t get what I wanted…and that was to have my book published and available for people to buy.
Flash forward about 10 years and I discovered On Demand Publishing…

Finding Createspace was the greatest thing for me. I researched how to use it. I set up a free account and proceeded to go through the process of publishing my book. When I ordered received my proof copy in order to approve it, it was an exciting day around my house. Holding my published book was pretty surreal. I don’t want to be overly dramatic about it, but I was very proud at what I had done. I have plans for at least 3 more books and my next one is getting close to being published. I can’t wait to receive that proof again.
If you’re like me….the amateur artist/author that wanted to get their work published, I highly recommend Createspace for your On Demand Publishing needs.
