How to use the Createspace Free Copies of your Novel Code


If you “won” NaNoWriMo 2012 by passing the 50,000 word mark in just one month, congratulations! Do you know you can pick up a discount code to use at Createspace to print 1-5 copies of your novel (or other writings)? Yep. The deadline is the end of June 2013, so it’s time to decide what you want to print and start getting it ready.

If you already had a beautifully checked, edited, and formatted novel ready for the process then check out my post from 2011 which guides you through the steps. Yes they have changed, a tiny bit, since then but if you get stuck just leave a comment below this post so I can email you my notes from this year.

It really is lovely to have a shelf of Nano novels to admire in your writing space and they’re very useful for when you’re proof-reading or editing. This is the third year I’ve availed of the offer and I’ve been very happy with it.

Or you can go the whole hog and self-publish, using the code to get you a few copies to giveaway to fans.

Happy writing,

Grace (ML for Ireland North East since 2009)
