For authors interested in using CreateSpace's Expanded Distribution Channel, CreateSpace has expanded the options for books that qualify for this service. The short excerpt below is announcement from CreateSpace.
We have some great news to share about the eligibility requirements for enrollment in the Expanded Distribution Channel (EDC). We've introduced additional trim sizes and a lower page count to expand the Bookstores & Online Retailers outlet in the EDC to even more book types. Here's what's new:
- Full-Color books are now eligible with a 6" x 9" and a 6.14" x 9.21" trim size
- Black-and-white books with cream paper are now eligible with a 5" x 8" trim size
- Black-and-white books are now eligible with a minimum of 24 pages
If you have a book with either of these trim sizes or page count, you can now log in to your Member Account and enable the Bookstores & Online Retailers outlet within the Expanded Distribution Channel.
