Mind you, I still consider Lulu.com a good option. It’s just that I had a tricky, weird thing happen. Well, more than one, but, it all stems from the same basic problem.
You see, it took me some time before I could order a copy of my book, after I was given the ISBN, and I could not approve my book for distribution until then.
After that, I got an email saying that my book was approved for distribution, 6-8 weeks and it would be available on Amazon.com.
Today, I got an email saying that my book was not approved for distribution (Published by Lulu..com) because the size is wrong, etc.
Guess what? They changed their policies as regards which sizes are available "Published by You’ and which are available "Published by Lulu’ sometime after I submitted the book for publishing, but, before I ordered the preview copy and approved it.
This was a size I worked long and hard to fit my book into, because of their prior sizing policies.
Needless to say, I am frustrated. I’ve already went and told people it’s finally for sale, and now I have to reformat the whole bloody thing to fit it into a new size. Which means I shall have to buy another preview copy, and maybe they’ll change the sizing policies while I am trying to scrape up the money for that, eh?
