CreateSpace is a DBA of On-Demand Publishing LLC, part of the Amazon group of companies.


They were originally founded as CustomFlix Labs, Inc. and BookSurge Inc.

CustomFlix launched in 2002 when four colleagues decided to make widespread distribution easier for independent filmmakers—they started CustomFlix, a DVD on-Demand company.

BookSurge was launched in 2000 by a small group of writers who wanted to create opportunities for authors to not only publish their work, but to also retain their content rights and sales profits. BookSurge grew to support leading publishers and independent authors, offering complete self-publishing, on-demand printing, and online distribution services.

In 2005, BookSurge and CustomFlix were both acquired by Amazon.com. CustomFlix’s name was changed to CreateSpace in 2007. In October of 2009, due to the harmonies that would be created in the businesses, the CreateSpace and BookSurge brands merged under the CreateSpace name to become the publishing and manufacturing on-demand leader for independent content creators, publishers, film studios, and music labels.


POEM | A poem for foster mothers, natural parents and all the foster children in the world

A mothers memoirs


Begin Today–Unknown


So, brief a time we have to stay

along this dear, familiar way;

It seems to me we should be kind

To those whose lives touch yours and mine.

The hands that serve us every day,

Should we not help them while we may?

They are so kind that none can guess

How soon the’ll cease our lives to bless.


The Hearts that love us, who many know

How soon the long, long way must go.

Then might we not their faults forgive

And make them happy while they live?


So many faults in life there are

We need not to go to seek them far;

But time is short and you and I

Might let the little faults go by.

And seek for what is true and fine

In those whose lives touch yours and mine;

This seems to me the better way

Then why not, friend, begin
