CreateSpace, an Amazon Business, Launches Books on Demand Self-Publishing Service for Authors
–Also announces free online setup for books, CDs and DVDs–

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. – August 8, 2007 – CreateSpace, part of the, Inc. group of companies (NASDAQ: AMZN), today announced the launch of a new online Books on Demand service. Also announced today, the company is no longer charging setup fees for books, audio CDs and DVDs. Authors, filmmakers and musicians can now offer their works to millions of customers on, and via their own free customizable eStore without any inventory, setup fees or minimum orders.

"The new CreateSpace Books on Demand service removes substantial economic barriers and makes it really easy for authors who want to self-publish their books and distribute them on," said Jeff Wilke, senior vice president, North American Retail, "The service will also give millions of Amazon customers access to an even greater selection of books, just as CreateSpace's DVD and CD on Demand services are adding significant selection to our movie and music catalogs."

Books on Demand works the same way as CreateSpace's DVD and CD on Demand offerings. CreateSpace books sold on are printed on demand, display "in stock" availability on and can be shipped within 24 hours from when they are ordered. The books are automatically eligible for Search Inside!™, Amazon Prime™, Super Saver Shipping™ and other programs as well.

"I've been using the CreateSpace DVD on Demand service since the company was founded in 2002. I am now selling 15 DVDs on published on demand and I've been looking for a similar print-on-demand option to self-publish my book, Radiant Source," said Jeremy Corbell. "Books on Demand is just as easy to use as the other CreateSpace services – I just uploaded my files, purchased my proof copy, and within days I was selling my book, along with my DVDs, on"

There are no setup fees or minimum orders for the CreateSpace on-demand service. Members are required to purchase and approve a proof copy of their book, CD, and/or DVD before titles can be produced on demand. Books published via the CreateSpace Books on Demand service are printed with high-quality, full-color paperback covers. Black-and-white or color interiors in multiple trim sizes can be selected as options. Members can also order high-quality copies of their book, DVD or CD at competitive wholesale prices.
