After a whole lot of trouble and trying to come up with printer solutions I think I may have it finally under control so I can get my book printed again at a reasonable cost as before with Amazon’s CreateSpace (CS).
CS did some kind of merger/change and I couldn’t access my CS acct or my book files to print more copies, then they told me they no longer just print books, so I wound up shopping for a new printer and found Lulu.com after finding every other printer wanted anywhere from $48 to $67 per book plus shipping to print them!
When I was selling the book for $35 with postage included, now having to pay $48 to $67 just for printing, plus sales tax and postage to get it to me, makes it completely unviable! Lulu’s price was comparable to CS’s price, but the problem was I tried at least six times to get my pdf files into their system and every time they went to process and print them they said there was “something” wrong somewhere around page 32… Well I looked and looked, resaved the files and on and on again and every time they uploaded and I paid for a proof copy and waited, a few days later when I was wondering WHERE the book was, I’d log in and see “ERROR” in red next to the files.
Hopefully all will look correct, and then I plan to order a bunch to have on hand so I’m not left with none and go to order a couple as needed and find the printer is no longer available or something!
In order to get printing now, I had to put it on Amazon for sale, and because of their cost it’s $39.95 now plus shipping and tax thru them, I will be offering them still as author direct for less anyway. So THIS is the place to get my book not Amazon!
