Lulu in Sixty

Lulu TV

Lulu wants to hear from you, and see you, too!

As much as we would love to pack up our camera equipment, get in the car, and stop by your house, we just can’t. Gas prices are too high, and who would run the blog while we were gone?

That’s why we’re asking you to come to us, or more precisely, to our blog. If you have created a product on Lulu, make a video telling us about it. Be creative, be inventive, but please, keep it clean. And not too long—thus Lulu in Sixty, like seconds. Our assembled team of expert bloggers will pick the ones that make us laugh, cry, or just scratch our heads, and post them on the blog!

Here are a few questions to get you started:

• Tell us about yourself and your Lulu project

• What inspired you to create your project? [And/or] How did you first become interested in the subject of your project?

• How does Lulu make possible for you what previously might have been impossible/very difficult?

• Are there any colorful, unusual/offbeat, surprising, amusing details, facts or stories?

• Fill in the blank: One thing that few people know about me is ________________.

• What do you do to bring out your inner muse?

• If you were being sent to a deserted island, what three things would you take with you?

Send us a link to your video to socialnetworking@lulu.com.

Enough blogging for now, let’s start vlogging!

    Is it possible to create my book off-line and then load it for publishing? I would like to be able to do much of my layout and writing at a location where I don’t have e-mail access.

  2. I don’t know where to send this, so I am sending it the best I can.

    Some of your questions:

    • Tell us about yourself and your Lulu project

    I am 67 years old and divorced, so I am a stay-at-home person.

    I have a novel on line (“The Adventures of Lizzie Jane”) that I would like to get published, but I do not know how to go about doing it. I have revised the entire story and posted it on Fictioneer.org
    http://www.fictioneer.org/content/adventures-lizzie-jane

    It may not be worth publishing, but anyone can check the URL above and decide.

    • What inspired you to create your project? [And/or] How did you first become interested in the subject of your project?

    I have always loved to write and found out the best way to write a novel for me is write a serial and put it all together when finished.

    • How does Lulu make possible for you what previously might have been impossible/very difficult?

    So far, it is not published because I don’t how to get it published (what is required, etc.)

    • Are there any colorful, unusual/offbeat, surprising, amusing details, facts

    The story is very unusual. It is a sweet sentimental story about hillbillie life, with a horror chapter, a science fiction section, a girl trying to regain her memory, and romance. Also, there is a Christian theme running through the story.

    Love,

    Hi everyone,

    On behalf of the Newsletter Team (me) I’m really sorry for the flub-ups in this past newsletter. I am human and make mistakes and this one I didn’t realize them until it is too late. While my proofing eyes fail me sometimes, I am working on creating a much better newsletter for next month. Please accept my apologies for this. Also, if you have any suggestions for topics you would like covered in the newsletter feel free to let me know those as well. Send an email to privacy[at]lulu.com. Thanks and so sorry for the mix ups.

    I’ve been receiving lulu emails for quite awhile now and I don’t fully understand how to go about getting my book proof read then published. I have one already completed, with some revision still ongoing. I had one knock back from a well known company and I know that knock backs are quite common. This was many years ago and I never submitted it again due to family commitments. I am writing another one now, but I’d like to know in advance what is required to get my work out there, then published. My passion has always been writing and because I have such a vivid imagination, a creative mind and the words flow when I start writing (or typing) I’d like to one day see my work on the shelves where I can give others the same pleasure it has given me
