  1. Kindle/Createspace are all now just Kindle (they merged) - we had a book in both and now are separate entries in Kindle - I had to order author copies and that was very easy too fyi. If you have anything in Createspace they will be moving it or you can move it yourself :) I buy things at garage sales and thrift stores and resell them on Facebook 24 hr bidding site or Craigslist

    1. Thanks for the info on Kindle/Createspace, I didn't know that. I have pulled my books from Kindle because they were getting out of date so I will need to check into that when I publish again!
