Now is your chance to show everyone how wicked smart you are.
Bring it on.
Those are some big questions there Derek. I'll do some searching to see what I can find out for you. Hopefully others have had experience with these and can chime in on one or two.
1. From all my research at this time you can't sell a PDF on Amazon unless it is for Kindle.
3. There is no reason to assign an ISBN on the pdf.
Not sure on the last two.
Anyone have more experience with print publishing?
Let me add a little direction to questions 4 & 5. I think what I am trying to ask is this: At what point or "where" is the price actually set for a book? Is the price of a book hard-coded in the ISBN, the Barcode, or somewhere else? And on top of that, is that answer different because I am self-publishing a POD on Createspace then it would be if I was going through a traditional publisher and my book was on the shelf of a book store?
I think the price will be set when I upload it to Createspace for the POD, not before. Not on the ISBN or Barcode. Is this right?
On more, just to make things fun: Do I even need to assign a barcode to the ISBN if I am only doing Create Space POD?
Since you are going through CreateSpace for this I would ask each of these to them via email or call. I have had great success working with CS in the past on one of my books. I had a response to my emails within 24 hours and if I called during business hours I always got a rep quickly.
Huh, I never thought of just asking them.
Thanks again Tony.

Great resource there Andy. Thanks for adding that to the discussion.
