My wife, who is my creative director and designed my self-published book (and has done the same for one other author to date), very carefully researched multiple publishing options before settling on Createspace. Createspace not only publishes, but also turnkeys placement on Amazon. It can, like other publishers, direct ship any size order to your contacts/customers.
And…it cost nothing to be on Amazon other than giving Amazon 45% of the sales price of your book. Then they automatically deposit your cut to the bank account of your choice.
