Distribution: Createspace

This is post 5 of 14 in the series “Publishing Process” Okay, so when I said that next was the fun stuff I… lied. Kind of. See, I’ve changed my process lately, and I’ve decided to put all of my new books out in print. This means that getting print done has to happen sooner, which means it’s the first outlet I’m going for. So, quick word to start.
