I think we're reading the "order a sample book" option wrong. I don't think it's changing the dimensions of our book and sending us a sample of it. I think it's sending a generic sample of a book authored by Createspace so we can see what their matte versions look like. I could be wrong, though.

    I hope you're right, David. I don't mind waiting a bit if it means the other trims will be covered as well. (Pun not intended. :P)

    Sorry, I think I misunderstood. So we CAN upgrade our 5.25x8 books now? And the 6x9 sample is just an example? (Man, I should start on poetry.)

    Whoop!  I was going to press publish on my CS book yesterday but am now very glad I waited.

    Mine is 8.5" x 5.5" and it gives me the option of matte.

    I updated mine with the matte option as well! It's very easy if you just want to switch to matte.

    Unfortunately, I also decided to give the interior a major facelift. I hope they take it.

    I didn't get the email. Only hearing of it here. But very excited because it will be perfect for the new series I'm starting!

    (I'll stick with glossy for my existing series.)

    I like the glossy covers but it's nice to have the matte option now. Since I've started my current series out with the glossy covers I'll wait until my next series for the matte covers.
