Sorry about that.  Friday morning, we realized the CreateSpace publishing solution we were planning to use was not up to snuff- the photos looked grainy and it was just a generally low-quality printing job.  We've switched to Lulu print-on-demand now, and for those of you who are authors, I'm happy to share my experience!

Corbett,

I am expecting delivery today. I have 12 years in the home performance business so I will give it a thorough review and send a pm with my input.

Thanks, Rick!

Wow, that is an awesome review, Jim!  You made my day! Sorry I didn't see this for a whole year!
