With a Little Help paperbacks now at $14.50!


When I created the Lulu.com store for the With a Little Help paperbacks, I discovered that adding an ISBN to the books automatically raised the minimum price on the book from $11 or so to more than $17 (that's because adding an ISBN makes the book available to retailers like Amazon, and Lulu wants to have some margin to use for a wholesale discount).

I wasn't happy about this, but I figured it'd be worth trying a launch-high/discount-later pricing strategy until I could figure out how to get the price down. Now, with help from Lulu, I've figured out how to get the paperback price down to a much more reasonable $14.50. The present book interior features some 75 typo-fixes, crowdsourced from early readers (each typo is commemorated with a footnote thanking the eagle-eyed reader).

  1. I've just read Zen and the Art of Self-Publishing. Interesting. I used to be a small press publisher. If you want to exchange ideas on how to publish content quickly and cheaply, give me a shout.

  2. Sorry if this duplicates my first effort. I've just read Zen and the Art of Self-Publishing. Interesting. I used to be a small press publisher and could offer help in getting books to your readers quickly and cheaply.
