SDWEG member Rick Lakin passed on this message he received from the CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) team.
We are contacting you because you ordered author copies within the past year for one or more CreateSpace books that are not currently available for sale on Amazon.com. To continue ordering copies when the move from CreateSpace to KDP begins in a few weeks, you will need to make your books available for sale on Amazon.com. To make your books available for sale, please log in to your CreateSpace account and select “Amazon.com” under the “Standard Distribution” channels.
If you do not take action before the move begins, your CreateSpace books that are not available for sale on Amazon.com will move to KDP in a ‘draft’ status. You will then need to make your books available for sale on Amazon.com by publishing your book from the KDP Bookshelf to continue ordering author copies and to make them available for customers to purchase.
Learn more about author copies on KDP here.
