A statement from Amazon, as reported in mid-January in South Carolina’s The Post and Courier newspaper, had this surprising news:
“After a thorough review of our service offerings, we’ve made the decision to discontinue CreateSpace’s paid professional editing, design and marketing services. We will work closely with impacted employees through this transition to help them find new roles within the company or assist them with pursuing opportunities outside the company.”
However…there is hope! BAIPA authors have a wide array of professional editors and designers in our own membership to choose from. Listen to the brief introductions at each meeting, or check out the online BAIPA Directory, to find out who’s who, and to find the perfect editor or designer for your project.
