First, let me say that I truly appreciate the existence of CreateSpace for self-publishing creatives. It's really a beautiful thing.
There is a bit of a learning curve for first-time users.
I'm a slow learner.
Actually, I'm proud of myself for having gotten as far in the process as I have. I have on my bookshelf a first proof copy of Love and Madness.

One thing that I find tedious about CreateSpace is using their templates. Of course, that's a better option than not using them. Unless there is a fairy who will fix the margins and any other formatting. (If any of you are friends with such a being, please schedule me an introduction.)
I read the forums, so I know I'm not the only writer who has problems with formatting and cover issues. Now that I have finished additional stories for the book, I am having to start from scratch with the template. Once that's done, Love and Madness will be hitting the market. Trust me, I will be shouting the news from every rooftop I can.
For now, keep me in your prayers. If I don't finish this first book soon I will either be losing all the rest of my mind or taking up drinking as a serious pursuit.
In the meantime,
