Does anyone have a bad word to say about Create Space for print on demand books?


Does anyone have a bad word to say about CreateSpace for print on demand? So far, I'm fleeing Lulu ASAP. CS is just more author-friendly, or so it seems.

    It is just so much more user-friendlly than AuthorHouse or Lulu, both of which have cost me a small fortune for unsatisfactory products. I thought there had to be a catch. Plus: my book is available on Amazon without me losing most of my profit.

    Lulu's prices are high and the author only gets a small portion. They are not as helpful correcting layout mistakes or letting you see how your book is actually going to look printed. Their site is not nearly as easy to use. They do print hardback

    I like how they don't charge much for a proof, and the fact that they adjust your text and cover to fit (Lulu lets you pay full author price for obviously screwed up items) and the interior pages they show you are laid out like you are turning pages.
