Every so often we receive an email asking if we are affiliated with the Lulu Book Review blog. While we aren’t officially affiliated with the great review team of the LLBR blog, we are big fans of the work they do, and are thrilled that these authors and reviewers chose Lulu!
On March 1st, The Lulu Book Review celebrated its very first birthday! We wanted to mark this joyous occasion with an interview with the Lulu Book Review’s founder, Shannon Yarbrough.
Be sure to visit the Lulu Book Review blog this month and join in the festivities, read some reviews and wish them a happy birthday! And don’t forget to follow the LLBR on Twitter, too!
Why did you create the Lulu Book Review?
I published my first book in 2003 with another print-on-demand publisher. In 2006 I came across Lulu.com and used it to republish a more inexpensive version of that book and a book of poetry. In 2008, I decided to use Lulu again to publish my second novel. I’ve always been an advocate for the POD community so with that second book I decided to create a blog devoted to reviewing print-on-demand books. Just having someone out there read my book always brought me great satisfaction, so I wanted to give that feeling back to other authors.
