Amazon launches CreateSpace in Europe

Amazon has launched its CreateSpace today (17th May) in Europe, which means that authors who self-publish in the UK can have their books accessed in European countries and the US.

Amazon’s CreateSpace platform, which has been running in the US since 2007, will now allow self-published authors to distribute their work though Amazon sites in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and America.

Libby Johnson McKee, CreateSpace m.d. said: “Using CreateSpace enables UK authors to make their books available to millions of customers in Europe and the US, unlocking the potential to increase their revenue by selling globally. Simultaneous distribution in the US and Europe is yet another great example of our commitment to helping authors succeed.”

Amazon has said authors can earn "industry-leading" royalties through the tool.
