I attended a free Webinar given by Joel Friedlander (his site is referenced in the panel to the right) on the subject of Amazon’s CresteSpace which is used for print books.
In the Webinar he stepped through an example of registering for CreateSpace and submitting a book for publishing. It was very informative with many answered questions and examples.
He took the time and trouble, of course, to pitch one of his Templates for self-publishing. That looks like a decent product for the right people, the information gained is well worth the time.
I believe you can still go watch it by visiting his site.
