I am revising my cover with CS. Now I am wondering if I should just use the new cover for a new edition with KDP instead of wasting time with print books in Createspace?
Which will sell more books if the publisher is in Australia? Story is Australian?

By your KDP book, do you mean an ebook?

Indie authors almost uniformly find that they sell more ebooks than print books. This is especially true for fiction. Because of shipping costs to Australia, I would think a print book would be very expensive there, whereas an ebook would be around $5 or $6 Australian.

If you mean CS versus KDP-print, the buyer wouldn't be able to tell the difference. If CS works for you, stick with it. It's free, even if you only ever sell a few copies.

The Oz store doesn't sell print editions, I'm afraid. Ebook is your only option there. Otherwise, of course, I recommend CreateSpace.

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

Good luck! -- NJ
