Lulu in the News

The past few weeks have been busy for us. Between getting out our first release of the year and adding a new partnership, Lulu’s been getting some time in the spotlight. Recently, your very own Lulu.com has been featured in stories from Reuters and the Associated Press about the trend of self-publishing. Gina Keating from Reuters says that Lulu “connects small fan bases with works they couldn’t find in bookstores.”

Candice Choi from the Associated Press also showed Lulu and self-publishing was a nation-wide trend with her piece, ‘Got a manuscript? Publishing now a snap’ got picked up by several other media outlets.

On top of these two features, we received a nice post from Mashable’s Kristen Nicole where she compares the café offerings to the new offering from Borders Digital Kiosk.

“Yes, I’m one of those people that sits in bookstores all day and flips through magazines and occasionally books, and only purchases stuff about half the time. That’s the beauty of having a cafe in the bookstore, right? For folks like me. Well, just like Borders teamed up with Seattle’s Best for luring solicitors into buying the premium stuff while they sit and read all day, Borders is now teaming up with self-publishing tool Lulu to extend its services to customers that would like to create their own book.”

  1. Will this mean that we can browse Lulu books in Borders then print them out if we’re interestedin purchasing them?

    Thanks for asking Wanda! The books that can be browsed online in the Borders Marketplace will be those published through the Borders program or on Lulu that have an ISBN. Users will be able to order these books online or from a Borders employee in the store. The books will not be printed in the store. Hope that was helpful! ~Lauren

  3. “The books that can be browsed online in the Borders Marketplace will be those published through the Borders program or on Lulu that have an ISBN.”

    Does this mean that books published as long ago as 2005, which have a Lulu ISBN, can be included in the Borders Marketplace? If so, when will the authors of these books be contacted about the process? I heard about it through an independent newsletter, not through Lulu.

  4. Uncommonly engrossing blog article.
