My vote is CreateSpace, hands down.

Thanks Darren, I thought createspace looked like the logical choice. I'll probably go that way. Drazj.

Yes do go with createspace..

Last year my wife decided to go with Balboa and it was a nightmarish experience that left her nothing short of cheated.

I recently did a project with create space and they were everything that balboa was not, they are responsive, helpful and totally up front,

There is a difference between print on demand and publish on demand. If your book is finished, and you have files, companies like Snowfall Press can print/deliver as well as anyone. If you need help with the whole process, CreateSpace seems to be getting great reviews. Many authors and small publishers farm out the various parts of their project to make sure they are getting the top help they need, and then they take the finished files to a print and distribution specialist.

There is also http://lulu.com I think they may be a bit pricier with their base cost, but I've used them for years and personally find them easier to use than CreateSpace.
