After picking out a "style" for the cover and writing a few words for the back cover, I uploaded all of this and the photo to createspace. The preview looked okay, so I ordered a proof copy for review. Here it is:
The cover photo is a bit different from the first photo shown above because I edited the image a bit. Anyway, the whole process was easy as pie. I just may go ahead and publish the thing. If you have a manuscript ready ( or even partially written), you might give creatspace a try. It's easy, and it doesn't cost you a thing!
