My book is currently, even as I type, being uploaded to Lulu in preparation for the paperback version. I explored other methods of printing including Troubador, which was recommended. It appeared to offer a very good service and I'm sure the quality would be excellent - and better than Lulu - but the books would have ended up costing £10 just to print and I don't think many people will buy a paperback at £10+.
While I'm not looking to make money from my book - I just want to get it out there and being read - I do want to make it accessible at least cost to me!
The other main option I looked at was Createspace, which is Amazon's print version, but as I think I explained before, as far as I could tell, books were printed in America - adding to costs - and there was an enormously complicated tax form to complete.
Okay, it's uploaded and now it's telling me to download and review ... I guess it knows what it's doing. Yip, it looks much the same as it did when I uploaded it. Whoops, except it finished at page 62 instead of 245.
Second attempt: only as far as page 60. Strange because it says it's uploaded all the pages and there's nothing to indicate that you're only going to see a sample. Never mind, I'll carry on for now with the cover.
Slightly distracted having had an email from the Kidwell-e Festival checking I'm still available and suggesting a reading from my novel rather than a talk, which suits me fine!
Got to go ice a cake now ...
