Hi,

Recently, I start publishing Paperback format of my E-books. One book was initially published thru "KDP paperback" and then re-published thru CreateSpace. The rest were published immediately thru CreateSpace. On my Bookshelf I see only paperback book that I initially published thru KDP. Is there something I have to do in order to see all my books on Bookshelf? (I mean to change some settings)

Thank you.
Regards,

P.M. Laidlow

Books published through CreateSpace are on your CreateSpace dashboard, as they have nothing to do with KDP.

Thanks for the info.
I have additional question. One of my paperback books is first issued on the KDP paperback and later on CreateSpace. Naturally, I see paperback format on KDP bookshelf and it is OK it is clear for me. Now the question is, when customer buy a book, which book is purchased. The book that was published on KDP or Createspace since there is only one icon on product page?

The paperback on the Kindle site should have been deleted OR at least taken out of all markets.
Per your description above, I don't know.

Unfortunately, the KDP Print version will stay around forever, unless you used your own, purchased ISBN, in which case the CreateSpace version will replace it. However, no one will be able to buy a copy of the KDP Print version unless you have actually sold one, in which case a secondhand copy might be available.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook.)

Good luck! -- NJ

I just sold one copy of the book. I am bit confused because I see royalty on KDP reports. Createspace report does not show sales. It looks like I sold KDP paperback...

Per your earlier description, check and see if you show two paperback listings (a paperback at CreateSpace and also on the Kindle site) by looking thru retail listings.

I'm not sure if I understood correctly.
When I open bookshelf on KDP, I see paperback book listed.
WhenI open Create space dashboard I see paperback book issued on that platform.

I just check report of sold books to check the book ISBN. The iSBN of the book that is sold matches the ISBB of the book issued on KDP.

Per your original post and this above, it sounds like you have two paperbacks currently for sale.
You said you wanted the one at CreateSpace, so any sales there will show on that platform. You cannot merge it to SHOW on the KDP site reports.
I think you should contact Customer Service below at 'contact us' and ask them what is going on.
