    Use Word, preferably. Download the Createspace template for the size of book you want, which should be a Word document, and start with that.

    And make sure that the images you embed are up to CreateSpace's standards of size and resolution. In other words, use at least the minimum resolution they specify, and make sure that the images are exactly the same size as the way they'll appear in the text. I learned this the hard way, of course.
