You Are Why We Do What We Do

Thank-you.jpeg

Most days our support team members answer questions about how to publish books and ebooks, track down late deliveries, and help people order books. Occasionally, we receive letters like this one, that remind us we are not just printing and selling books; we are also making a positive difference.

Dear Ellen,
     I know you have changed jobs at Lulu and I should be talking to the new account manager, but I feel like this note is for you since you are the person I worked with first.  The other day, I Googled information for my son and an advertisement for Lulu popped up and god bless you, there was our cookbook!  Thank you! It was very surprising to see Grits and Groceries in your ad!
     We really enjoy working with y’all and you couldn’t make it any easier for us.  I have been telling all my chef friends about how great your company has been to work with!  One of them cried when she found out what we make on each book.  She went with a traditional publisher and makes only 75 cents per book sold.
     I want you to know what this book does for us as a small business.  The sales from this little cookbook keep two full-time single mothers working, makes it so we can pay for time off when an employee is out sick, helps support one full time farmer and three part-time growers, and is the cornerstone for a new farmer’s market in Greenwood, South Carolina.
We really thank you for taking such good care of us and this little book.                               
Thanks,
Heidi Trull

  3. Printed my own book… very few errors. Deliberating about named title. Do you handle distribution? My book is full color with my own art work.

  4. Hi Sunny
    Congratulations on your book. Lulu is a print-on-demand publisher, which means we print books when they are ordered. Therefore we do not keep inventory. You can, however, upload your manuscript and offer it for sale in the Lulu bookstore as well as all online booksellers (as long as your book qualifies for an ISBN). Here’s a video you about how to publish with Lulu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlmG9z0_kX0
