lightning source or create space?

Hi I am just about to put my book out through print on demand. I have been working towards using lightning source but have some concerns with them fazing out of having books on the latest is that books go to 2-4 week delivery date which will not sell books. With LS you get to keep more per book but that won't do any good unless you can sell them...

Have you seen problems with Lightning source? or create space for that matter?

Create Space or Lightning Source
by: Laura Ramirez

My book, Keepers of the Children: Native American Wisdom and Parenting was first published with Lightning Source in 2004 and continues to be my on-demand printer to this day. The book is sold on Amazon, B&N and my websites and I have had no issues or problems.

I receive a check monthly from Lightning Source for my sales on Amazon and have not heard anything about the issue that you are referring to. In fact, I just placed an order on the LS website today for a PO that I received from an organization that wanted to buy 25 copies of the book. I have had a great experience with Lightning Source and I'm sure that whether you ultimately choose LS or Create Space, you can't go wrong either way.
