I don't see the link on my KDP published paperback to order author copies. Where is it supposed to be?

Edit:

I chose KDP over Createspace because the information in this URL led me to believe "Author copies" were available. Very disappointing.

Coming, coming, but not here yet. Which is why we all keep saying use CreateSpace. B

Bail out of kludgy KDP Print and set up an account at CreateSpace, which -- what a concept! -- actually works.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ

Only a few publishers were randomly selected to test this beta aspect of the beta program. Maybe in five or six months they'll get the problems ironed out. Maybe not. It's been about two years and KDP-Print is still struggling, so any optimism would be unwarranted.

Thanks everyone. That's too bad to hear, kinda sucks really. I will have to give it a think over in terms of going over to Createspace then.
