[scribus] Color management for CreateSpace/printer color profiles (revised)

Does anyone know or have an educated guess what equipment CreateSpace
uses for a color book interior and what is the printer color management
profile to use?

CreateSpace cannot or will not reveal the technical information needed
to manage color for a book interior. All I can learn from CreateSpace
(after a series of queries to support) is that they use digital printers
and I should work in CMYK.

I would like to control the appearance of color photographs AND the
color of display typography. I use Lightroom 3.6 and Photoshop or Gimp
for managing and preparing photos, the color space is Adobe RGB.
  **Lightroom does not recognize CMYK printer profiles.**

Scribus allows me to enter the color management profile of the target

What is a proven workflow? Do I convert all the photos to CMYK, and
which program should I use? Or do I work in RGB and rely on Scribus for
the conversion?

Thanks in advance!

All the best,
