[texhax] Lulu and CreateSpace formatting

Hi all,

I was a heavy LaTeX user in the 1980s and 90s, but since then have made much less use of it as my career changed. I now want to collect together a lot of earlier material and make it available at low cost in the form of print-on-demand books from Lulu and CreateSpace. Everything is in LaTeX 2.0.9, article.sty or book.sty, and my current editing package is Textures on a Mac.

Lulu and CreateSpace accept PDFs (provided the fonts are fully embedded), and provides page size and text area parameters, but little more. Certainly no LaTeX style files -- they do not seem to have any support for TeX. I assume I need to edit the book.sty file to generate PDFs of the required dimensions. But that's beyond anything I ever did before. So I'm looking for someone who could edit my book.sty file (a customized one I was provided for an earlier book project) so the output has the right dimensions for Lulu. I'm willing to pay for this, BTW.
