Self-Publishing: Lulu and More

Some Interesting News...



The writers of two blogs I read have recently published books with Lulu.

Prairie Mary (Mary Scriver of Montana) has published Twelve Blackfeet Stories. More information is available on her blog.

Leonard Sadorf and Larry Widen have published Lar and Len: A Long Strange Trip, and you can read more about the book at Western Blues.

Both these books are available for download or for purchase in book form.

It's amazing. A couple weeks ago, I'd never even heard of Lulu Publishing, and now I have personal knowledge of people who've published Lulu books.

I corresponded a little with Mary about her book. She says that Lulu is one of the more reputable self-publishing companies.

Another interesting site, Blogbinders.com allows bloggers to publish their blogs in book form. The site suggests that a blog book is "great as a gift, an archive, or even to sell to your readers!" I came across this just today. Obviously, I'm not exactly on the cutting edge of self-publishing.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
