    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.
