Dear Photographer: I Need Help Finding Self-Publishing Resources for My Photo Book

I’m currently looking to publish a book of my black and white street photographs and don’t know where to start. I have the images ready, but will need some help with the layout. Was thinking of going with a ready-made template (or is that cheesy)? Any resources that you can recommend would be appreciated. —Anonymous
