Self publishers of the world unite

A blog friend recently got her book, African Ways, into print by self-publishing.

It seems as simple as ABC and that 1000's are succesfully doing just this, judging by Lulu.com Top Sellers.

I think this concept is fantastic, there is something wonderful about getting the printed word onto black & white bound paper. But maybe it's just nostalgic old me.

Bless you! But you are so right. Just feeling it, seeing it and reading it in a solid printed form is totally different and simply wonderful.

Lulu is great. Repeat after me. Lulu is great!

PS I've ordered the Flat Stanley CD based on the clips on their site. Sounds excellent.

Um, so when can we expect ATW's witticisms in the printed form? I look forward to it! (less the rugby, of course, which is unfortunately largely unintelligible to me) :)

Ant, when I get a job that will give me the space to look at the stars a bit more. ....

ATW said...

Val, I think that Flat Stanley will be most proud to have some dutch support.

Third World Ant said...

Hope that happens sooner rather than later, atw.

I'll try and spread the word over here! Apparently Holland is very receptive to new bands.

BTW I echo Ant's sentiments too ;-)
