I’m putting together the final bits for Createspace and been looking at ISBNs and print costs. If you get an ISBN from Createspace you can’t use the ISBN with any other publisher. Hmmmm. Tempted to get my own.
Print costs are so high that at $10.99 you make about 50c. Now the royalty isn’t the real issue for me, rather the huge barrier that price represents for readers taking a punt on an unknown. I’d love to be able to sell at half that for less royalty.
