“Now I Am A Published Author!”

published 25/09/2007

You can publish your own work - and just how you w...

Have to buy own copies, American, can take a lot o...

I have written things for as long as I can remember - stories, articles, poetry, half-novels, etc. but have found the whole area of publishing at best daunting and at worst soul-destroying. I have had some things published - poems, articles, that kind of thing - but the whole process is quite...

OVERVIEW If you have a creative flair that you would like others to enjoy then Lulu.com could be the place for you. It's an online self publishing website. I actually stumbled across it about a year ago, but only recently went back. It's changed a bit since I first used it, and now they will...

“Become Your Own Publisher”

Preparing the book for publication can be quite a ...

Lulu.com sounds like a dream come true for aspiring authors: a website that allows you to become your own publisher. But is it as good as it sounds? I have limited experience with Lulu - I've never been able to actually finish a novel, let alone consider going down this publishing route...

I would like to share with all of you my experience of an online marketplace that functions a bit like e-bay, except that you actually sell your own work ! So you no longer have to search in your attic for old things to sell, but search instead in your imagination or hard drive for stories to...

“Get yourself OUT THERE”

published 26/10/2007

Free and perhaps profitable

Not seen any yet

Since the early 1970's I have been writing poetry and have been fortunate enough to have had a few published. I have also had the honour of publishing a few here and getting an extremely positive feedback. I have on several occasions thought about publishing a book, but the expense and hassle...

“So you like writing?”

published 06/09/2006

Publishing, lots of variety, easy menus

A lot that's not so good, shipping from America

Lulu.com is a self-publishing website. If you have a book idea that you want to sell, but haven't managed to find a publisher or agent for it, you can put it on Lulu. Lulu works on the idea that people read the first few pages online and then buy a printed version or download the whole thing if...

“Lulu.com Publishing”

published 14/08/2008

None

Non delivery of goods, customer service unhelpful

Lulu claims to allow you to publish books that you have wrote, whether you just want one copy for yourself, or if you want to start selling your own stories through the internet. Their site seems professional, with a choice of book types available, ranging from paperback to hardback, with or...

“Lulu - Publishing Carnage”

published 11/11/2008

Easy to use - gets you out there

None so far

I found this site to be very easy to use and extremely useful. I wrote a book that I recently finished - I'm really happy with the work and wanted to publish it exactly how I wrote it before publishers messed around with it so I di here at Lulu. http://www.lulu.com/content/4801547 Lulu gave me...

“Lulu - Print to demand.”

I'm a Lulu self published author and the owner of an eco friendly business. I firmly believe that digital print to demand technology is the way forward for the publishing industry. Lulu provides this on so many levels and now they have a UK based printer they're even better. If you want just a...

“Writing is for everyone!”

published 21/03/2010

Free ISBNs

3-5 day printing...

From my point if view, Lulu.com is by far the best self-publisher that I have ever tried. With the built-in Lulu Studio, the cover designer, publishing my children's book was a breeze. Lulu also offers ISBNs, distribution and editorial services. The basic ISBN package is free, and gets you onto...

Easy and friendly user experience

Yet to find

I'm part of a team working towards selling 1000 ebooks by August 2008 and we zeroed in on lulu as a platform. Lulu by itself allows different ways to market internally on the website. You can blog, write on internal forums and create communities. There is a lot of flexibility on how you can...
