How To Switch From Createspace to KDP Print – by David Caughran…

Createspace is rumored to be closing soon – meaning all users will be forced to transition to KDP Print (or use an alternative service).

David has over a hundred comments and responses. I didn’t wade through them (don’t have the time), but I’m wondering if anyone has moved their books with the new link at CreateSpace.
