Can there be anything more revolutionary than being able to publish books with vanity press size print runs and not having to spend a cent?
If you want your own copies of the book you pay about as much as any other customer. Buy 50 of your own graphic novels to sell at the CON for about a 13 percent profit.
Let Lulu and Amazon sell them and split any moneys made with LulU.
I talked this over with a guy at work. The picture I posted is from the top graphic novel of the site. Shawn Stiles huge sketchbook. S Curves.
The idea you no longer have minimum orders where you sell ten percent or less of a bunch of books and have the extras for the next 20 years. That's over. This is just a PDF file they keep on file and use for printing as orders come in.
Anyway, check it out. I'm excited about the idea myself.
My friend Yongwoo let me have this interesting data when we went to Stuart Ng's bookstore.. Check out his Blog by going to my Blog and clicking on ECHOFORM
