Zoe Winters did a response to Robin’s post about liking CreateSpace. Zoe likes LighteningSource. Here are her reasons why. I suggest that everyone read both articles when looking at POD.
That said, I use CreateSpace. I use a fantastically better profit margin that Robin talked about, as Zoe talked about, and I love how cheap I can get author copies (or direct sale copies to bookstores) through the CreateSpace $39.00 Pro Plan.
However, that said, I will be using LighteningSource on hardbacks.
By the way, those of you arguing paper and quality and such, CreateSpace often has their books printed and bound by LighteningSource. Order the cream paper on both, folks. No extra cost at CreateSpace.
Thanks, Robin and Zoe for a great discussion.
Read both, folks, then explore for yourself.
