Lessons Learned Self-Publishing With Lulu
Google Blogscoped has a great article up about Lulu, an online self-publishing shop that allows you to print your writing. I have always been interested in the idea of publishing a book, or even just a few of my longer writings as something bound nicely so I could hold onto it for a long time, but I really have not got around to it.
Everyone can be an author. You just need a time-out to write, an idea about what to write, and the motivation to finish. You are not restricted to novels or non-fiction books, you can also publish calendars, photo books, even comic books (take a look at what others have done on Lulu). If you ever felt like quitting your day job to do something different, maybe this is it?
Youâ??ll pay for either black-and-white, or color pages on Lulu.com… you canâ??t mix the pricing, that is, you canâ??t have 2 color pages in a b/w book unless youâ??re willing to pay for color on all the other pages.
Anyone else try Lulu or another service? What did you think? I am really interested on your opinions on publishing a real book versus an e-book as well.
