CreateSpace vs Lulu.com - which is better??? ( with Poetry in mind)
....Ive read through a number of hubs & answered questions regarding self-publishing, and have checkout the above online sites, but Im interested to hear of any first-hand experiences?:-))
I've self published one at Lulu .. The service is good but the one problem comes if you want to sell the book ... The cost is high for a single book as it is a very short run .. that said it's nice to get a printed copy for yourself.
don't know about CreateSpace .. may look into that
Lulu started out as poetry.com, and being familiar with that site, that's where I first published my works. About a year later I found out about createspace. So I republished everything there and released my music there because they are owned by Amazon. Createspace is a great way to get your works listed on Amazon, and my royalty payments always come on time. They are also a good way to get into publishing for the Kindel. I wrote a hub about it when I first started here.
Thanx trecords0, I checked out the link you provided, very useful. Ive decided to go with createspace as it is the better option for me. Wish me all the best:)
Rirsos you are absolutely right, lulus set prices are too high! I wasted so much time.... yet thank God I didnt waste any money otherwise i would have been utterly furious.

If there are any professional, published authors here on hubpages (and I'm sure there are tons of you guys) I was wondering if someone could tell me if self-publishing is good or bad, and maybe give a couple of pros and cons. It would be my first book.

Is there any way to publish traditional books directly with Amazon? Every time I try to look that up on their site, they direct me to their Kindle section.
