By Veronica Yager
Did you self-publish with CreateSpace? Have you linked your book to your CreateSpace eStore URL to receive a higher royalty?
If you have been marketing your eStore link for your books, you’ll need to reconsider that beginning this November. As of October 31, 2017, CreateSpace has announced that it will close it’s eStore down. This means that any links you have out there for your CreateSpace eStore will now be redirected to your main Amazon link. Details on how much you will earn can be found on CreateSpace’s help page on this topic here.
