Total Design Freedom Essentials Includes
It seems CreateSpace have decided to go down the same avenue of marketing their services as Lulu. Although CreateSpace offered many individual services to authors – their focus has shifted to the familiar self-publisher packages.

For example, their ‘Total Design Freedom Essentials’ has the following at $1658.
A basic copy edit for the average book of 60 – 80 k words should hit the $500 – $600 tops mark, so that is a lot of bucks for what remains on offer, custom cover and interior and ISBN, and online distribution.
