Missing the CS Professional Services

Over my last four books, I had worked with a CS project team in creating each of my book covers.  I have received great reviews and applause at book signings about their work.  Do not underestimated the power of your cover. I have had fellow authors ask me where they were created.  As I worked on releasing my fifth book, I was disheartened to learn that I could no longer rely on a professional from Create Space.   No I am struggling to create a quality PDF that CS printer can follow. If I knew where the pros went, I would follow them.
