Publishing at lulu.com?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I wondered whether anyone has experiences publishing at lulu.com. I am working on two projects for very niche markets. I feel that I know how to get publicity for them, but do not want the cost of printing a few thousand books or the hassle of sending them off one by one and collecting payment.

I would live to hear some experiences.

I printed my latest novel with Lulu and had a great experience. My wife did the cover design (she has the art skills) and it was relatively easy to get the image file and the text into their system.

It was cheap (free!), and anyone can order my book whenever they want. The book, however, is rather expensive for a small novel, and I only make about $1.40 from each sale, but I never expected to sell many.

I also put up my previous novel as a digital download, much cheaper to purchase, but haven't had anyone take me up on that offer.

All in all, I've found it to be a great way to get a book put together with minimal fuss.

Check this out--I found it very helpful: READ THIS BEFORE YOU SELF PUBLISH
