- Coolness -- thanks for the info.
Good thinks -- it's a rough economy.
And, yeah, some of the hardest 'work' I do doesn't involve monetary renumeration....

You are correct, it is print on demand. Lulu (and Amazon) pays royalties. I published both on Amazon and on Lulu with zero cash outlay. Which is good because as I've been outta work since April 2009, I've got zero cash to outlay... ;-)
Seems like the most interesting things I do happen while I'm unemployed. There's a lesson there somewhere.
P.S. it's not exactly correct to say that I've been outta work all that time. Best to say working "without salary" because I've been working very long hours as CEO of a corporation I started last October (Exile Machine LLC).

> Sorry about that, I was working on a pocket paperback version to try to get the retail price down even further but (after about a day's worth of work reformatting) it ended up costing more. I don't know how they figure the cost but I believe it is proportional to the page count regardless of page dimensions. For some reason Lulu defaulted the project to being "generally available" instead of "private." I've marked it private so it won't appear on the lulu store and confuse anyone again.
