For those who, like me, rely on Lulu.com to publish the books we write, this is a warning: don’t. In fact, fuck Lulu.
The site recently updated/upgraded itself. As a result, you can no longer create a book that you can see through their website. You can either create one for yourself only, or you have to go the whole hog and purchase ISBN codes, which are bloody expensive.
Nor can you upload to convert a Word File, you have to create a PDF and upload that.
If there are other changes discriminating against the kind of writer I am, who isn’t trying to make any money out of his writing because, to be honest, I know my appeal is too limited, I don’t know because at that point I closed it down, and I won’t go anywhere near the site again.
Does anyone know any other decent online publishing site that still caters for the limited talents among us?
