Self-publishing is a tremendous boon to the general writing public. From printing and binding a family history to crafting a lavish work of fiction, to a manual or textbook companion to your work or teaching career—print-on-demand and self-publishing have opened up a new world of possibilities. Now you can publish your book and sell it globally in a matter of minutes!
You could publish a book today, and in less than two months time that book would be available for sale on retail sites around the world. And it would be listed immediately for sale in Lulu’s own global bookstore.
You would not believe how many times I’ve heard those two words. They’re most often followed by ‘What’s the catch?’ or something similar.
There is no catch. Lulu publishing is completely free. And accessing our distribution network is completely free.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
I’m not going to lie to you; it is a bit more complicated than it sounds. It’s still free! But you will have to comply with distribution requirements, format your files to specification, and take the reins for editing and designing your book.
This is self-publishing after all.
If you’re ready to take on the challenge and want to get your book out there to the world, Lulu’s GlobalReach distribution service is the perfect tool for you. Free listing on major book retail sites, free publishing tools, a free ISBN. And you’ll be able to take advantage of Lulu’s high-quality print on demand network to earn the best returns in the industry.
