Createspace - Another Way Of Self-Publishing

I was one of the first writers to crack the eBook market with self-published books. At one point back in 2010 I had four of the five top positions in the UK Kindle bestellers chart, something no other writer has managed.

But it took me some time to try selling self-published paperbacks. I was never convinced that the time and cost was worthwhile. But I had a lot of people telling me they wanted to see my self-published books as Stephen Leather paperbacks.

I was a bit nervous about making the jump to self-publishing paperbacks but I've been pleasantly surprised at how well my paperbacks - published through Amazon's Createspace platform - have sold.

The two Jack Nightingale stories I have put on Createspace - New York Night and San Francisco Night - sell in greater numbers than the five Jack Nightingale books published by Hodder and Stoughton. And my copies are selling at £9.99 each!

Here are the covers of my two self-published Nightingale books.

Anyway, here's me talking about Createspace on a blog - CLICK HERE
