CreateSpace now offers a matte finish cover in addition to the usual glossy cover. To learn more, visit the CreateSpace homepage and look under the login where it says “What’s New?” You’ll see a “Matte Cover Finish” note. Click the “Learn More” link. It will provide some more details, along with an example of when matte may be a good fit.
Glossy seems to be a better fit for my books, but I think I will try matte out at some point. It’s nice to have an option.
CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing have been making changes lately, with free Expanded Distribution and the new Countdown Tool. I’m liking these new changes. 🙂
