Lulu’s First Author Sales Contest Begins March 1st

Throughout the month of March, Lulu will be offering a chance to win fame, fortune and some free marketing for you and your book in our first ever Author Sales Contest. The three highest selling author’s in March will receive $1,500, $750 and $500 respectively, with the top three titles (and a few honorable mentions) highlighted on the site and Lulu newsletter. As an extra added bonus, the first place winner will also be treated to an exclusive interview posted prominently here, in our very own Lulu blog.

To enter the contest you must register your intent through the entry form on the Author Sales Contest page. Registration is open now through the end of March. For more information head on over to the contest page now and sign up.

We hope this contest will bring a little extra added fun and excitement to your experience on Lulu and help highlight some really great books in the process.

As always we’d love to hear what you think about what we’re doing or if you have any questions. Please let us know.

Regards,
Adam

  1. That sounds like a lot of fun, I think I’ll give it a shot…

  2. Really disappointing that this is only open to residents of the USA.

  3. Hi Adam-

    When I click on the entry link on the contest page, it redirects me to my project page, but there’s no information there about signing up.

    Any thoughts?

  4. I would love to be considered for the author with book contest that Adam has explained. have been a lulu.com author since 2002, and I have steadily increased the books that I publish. I have noticed that I do not sell high quantities of the books at one time, but my books keep selling consistently all year long and the number of sales has been increasing dramatically. Lulu.com has definitely made me a well known author now in the field of genealogy and my site is being advertised on Cyndi’s Award Winning Genealogy site. I have been so satisfied with my website and my association with lulu.com and I have now created four other sites for other authors, even helping them format and get their books on line. Thank you lulu.com for making me a success story!

    Hey Anthony,

    Unfortunately, due to the varying laws that pertain to contests in other countries, expanding the entries internationally just wasn’t something we felt was feasible, but we do hope to be able to offer similar events for our international authors in the future.

    Shannon – it sounds like you’re actually clicking on the link to register an account that is located on the bottom of that page.

    The “entry form” is on the upper right-hand side of that page. You should see a field for your email addressed and a button marked, “Enter the contest”

    Hey Adam – I’m a new Lulu author (though not a new writer!). I like the sounds of the sales contest, but do have a question: does Lulu report average monthly book sales anywhere? It would be good to have some kind of benchmark to strive toward for the contest. It would also be helpful for new authors to learn what might generally be expected from Lulu sales. Thanks.

  9. Is there any way that I could participate in the contest even though I’m only 14?

    Just a simple children author, writing books to see children giggle and laugh every where.
