Easter Egg Hunt Contest

We invite you to have a bit of fun with us this Easter by joining us on a virtual Easter Egg Hunt. Throughout the day on Easter Sunday we are hiding “eggs” around the Web. Collect as many as you can to earn savings at Lulu.com. The more eggs you find, the more you save!

How to Play

Hunt around on the Web for Lulu’s hidden Easter eggs (clue: our Lulu Easter bunny really likes social media). Some are much trickier to find than others.They will be posted throughout the day on Easter Sunday.

Each “egg” is a word or name. For example, on Twitter we might say:

“What’s the name of the author who….? #LuluEasterEggHunt”

When you figure out that author’s name, you will have one egg. Enjoy collecting as many eggs as you can throughout the course of the day.

When you are finished, email a list of the eggs you found to EasterEggHunt@lulu.com. Please include your country in the email. The deadline for sending the email is 5pm EST, Mon., April 9, 2012.

Lulu will email you back with your reward by 5pm EST, Friday, April 13, 2012.

Prizes:

5% off, 10% off or 15% off. Every 5 eggs earns you another 5% off, so 1-5 eggs earns you 5% off, 6-10 eggs earns you 10% off and 11-15 eggs earns you 15% off. Coupons are valid for 60 days, one-time use.

Trick or Treat? Why Not Both…

Hulkmania!

It’s Halloween in the Lulu office and I thought it’d be fun to share some of the great costumes people have been wearing all day.

Each year, Lulu team members break out their biggest wigs, their goofiest glasses and their scariest masks in an attempt to out do each other in the fierce competition to win the “Best

Right to Left: A Musketeer, Dr. Who, Captain Planet, Barista

Costume Award.” No Lulu holds back and there were some pretty remarkable costumes this year. Some of my favorites were Hulk Hogan and Uncle Fester (with a real light up bulb in his mouth).

But we don’t want to be the only ones having fun, so as a treat for All Hallows’ Eve, we’re offering a couple special deals to all our customers and creators this weekend.

Create a press release and let your fans know they can get your book this summer with FREE shipping. There’s no better time.

Help Me Pick the Perfect Mother's Day Gift – Please!

letterMay is the month of mom — especially in my family.

Mom’s birthday is the day before Mother’s Day. She’s a real-life Wonder Woman who certainly deserves all the extra attention. But I feel pressure this year to make her gift extra special because this birthday is her big 5-0 (sorry to divulge that, mom!). I want a gift that’s both sentimental and memorable, something that no one else could give her. There’s no better place to look than Lulu, but I can’t decide what to make.

Growing up, mom wanted to be a photographer for National Geographic. So I’ve thought about making a Lulu photo book full of her best pictures mixed in with maps that show where she was when she took them.  I can completely customize it and make a nice, personalized, hard cover book that she’d be proud to display on her coffee table.

Then again, mom also likes to cook, and she has all these recipes that have been passed around our whole family. So another thought is to create a personalized Lulu cookbook full of our family’s favorite dishes.  That’d be great for preserving delicacies like my grandmother’s delicious sweet potato casserole and seven layer cookies.  I even have handwritten recipes and pictures of food I could upload. The cookbook could live on in our family, with regular updates as we collect new recipes.

My mom is also very busy and could always use help with her schedule.  So maybe a personalized Lulu calendar with photo birthday and anniversary reminders would do the trick.  I can pull in pictures of our family and her friends directly from Facebook so it should be pretty simple.  I know she’d use it every day, too.

What do you think? What Lulu creation has gotten the best reaction for you?

I’m hoping you can help me pick out the perfect gift, and get a few ideas of your own. Right now you can save 15% on all photo books and calendars (use code MOM15 at checkout) so it’s a great time to make mom a remarkable present.

Hurry though, Mother’s Day is only 2 weeks away.


$150 Book Fair Coupon with the Purchase of a Publishing Pack

BookFairSvcs_BlogGraphicWhat better way to show off your newly published book than at a book fair?  Purchase any one of our publishing packages from now through March 31, and we’ll give you a coupon for $150 towards any one of our book fairs.  Most of the book fairs we offer start at $150, so you essentially can get a great promotional tool for free!

This promotion cannot be combined with any other offer or discount. Author is responsible for cost of shipping 2 books to be displayed at the book fair. The $150 coupon is applied toward a book fair service, but may not cover the entire cost of the book fair. When selecting a book fair, the publisher should consider the time it will take to go through the pre-publishing process.
