Indie CreateSpace Title to Sell at Walmart

Beautiful Redemption Jamie McGuireJamie McGuire is an indie author, previously published but transitioned to indie. She’s written multiple books that have done very well at Amazon. Beautiful Disaster for example has over 5,000 reviews.

One of her CreateSpace titles released in 2015, Beautiful Redemption, is also selling well and raking in reviews. That should continue as the author just made a deal with Walmart to carry her paperbacks in select stores.

Yes, Walmart and CreateSpace for self-published books.

As you may know, getting major booksellers to stock a CS title from an indie author was considered mission impossible. What makes it even more remarkable, Jamie doesn’t have her own imprint for this title: the listed publisher is CreateSpace which means Jamie opted for the free CreateSpace ISBN. Remember the skeptics who always said, “you have to buy your own ISBN so it won’t be obvious that it’s a self-published book”? Turns out they can be wrong too.

How exactly the deal came to pass is something Jamie hasn’t disclosed. You can visit her website and ask:

Another example of how much the publishing revolution continues to produce changes that favor authors more each day. Congratulations, Jamie.
