    Just wondering if anyone here has published a book on Amazon.

    Did you use CreateSpace?

    Did you hire an editor or a writer?

    What did your editor/writer cost?

    How long did it take?

    How many words did you write?

    Was it a positive experience?

    I gave it a try when i first saw createspace years ago I didnt use an editor or a writer just compiled a few lists of PLR articles on various topics like weightloss/credit repair and submitted those(print books are not checked for duplicate content or atleast they wornt checked back then) each of the books was about 80-100 pages and it didnt take me more than an hour to compile however I found it extremly hard to get proper covers done on my own.

    Was it a positive experience ? I guess if someone is serious about it there is money to be made there. Iv made a few sales over the years which is something since my covers wore really bad the content was shitty and I did zero marketing :)

    I'm a Kindle Publisher. I make really good money with it. Its like anything. Hard work and creative thinking. It doesn't make the profit that most of the guys around here are used to being able to generate. It takes a lot of work and Amazon likes to do updates like Google does and ruin all your hard work.
