This was the one thing that I did not like about publishing through Createspace – they did not offer a “matte” cover option. So self-published titles through CS were always “glossy”. So when I came across this offering while trying to upload edited material this afternoon, I was beside myself with joy.
Existing books can also be converted to the new format without going through the entire approval process. Check out the details in the links below.
