Before anyone plunges into Lake Lulu, I point out that one reason Adventure Books exists is because we know how to format books that are professional and illustrated, and that we have a good marketing program, especially in the Seattle area...

The first book we did there was 'Say Goodbye To The Sun'   We had to make corrections/changes and upload the ms., covers, to lulu THIRTY TIMES before we got it right.

Since then we have learned a lot...(LOL)  It is rewarding, it is seriously empowering, and it can give you a big headache until you get it right.

Second book, Dimensions, only needed minor changes.

And my copy of Dimensions just arrived in the mail last week. It looks very good and is currently sitting on my pile of reading for next week.

Boy, that's a relief!

You didn't receive one of the first six galley copies with the minor errors. There were four pages in that edition where the text was Times New Roman instead of Garamond, and a couple of the stories had minor errors. We fixed it all, as far as I cn determine. Great.

All copies now should have the isbn on the back, with the barcode. Yours, maybe. Doesn't really matter, though, on that point.

Happy reading. One of my personal favorites is 'A Smaller Step.' Wink

It is an enigmatic story, Robert.

As you know, I would have a slightly different ending. Only a matter of opportunist identity that maybe readers might add themselves...  they will understand.

Lulu.com has done a fine job on the Spinetingler Magazine Short Story Anthology, with YOURS TRULY'S short short story, "Goody-Two-Shoes." in it. Blunt, you gave me great advice about dialogue tags on that story.

Very professional looking, excellent quality cover and paper. Now to buy a bunch of them for holiday gifts!  evil

I also appreciate the info. in this thread.  I have books that friends have had done at Lulu and they are very well done...but the price does really vary, and I'm thinking you set your own price.  Theatre of Decay, a print horror mag. does theirs at lulu and it looks great, but I just read a post someplace else that has one for $15. 

I would love to have Static Movement in print but am afraid that I can't do it.  I'll take a look at the instructions on both of the sites mentioned here and maybe I'll be able to figure that out in the future.  Static Movement is the first thing I've ever had to program and it wasn't easy, but getting better as I do it, maybe between the two instructions something will come of it.

With Lulu, you can also get isbn# and possibly get into bookstores locally.  Worth looking into.
