They have good prices from what I’ve seen so far, and occasionally offers free shipping. But they are a nightmare to work with if you are a new publisher, like me. Support is non-existent and their help pages don’t work sometimes, you’ll get a 404 error. It’s a huge website and company and I think they are understaffed. I’ve gotten my orders mixed with someone else, but they fixed that in a very professional and automated way. You’ll only get no-reply mails to notify you of issues and updates, so not much human contact.
But when I’m done publishing, those of you who have expressed your desire to own a copy of my calendar, you will be able to have the calendar delivered at home at half the price I can make it with my printer and maybe even with free shipping if you make an account with with Lulu.
Hello world! My collectible sticker booklet is now on Lulu! Hurrah!
For those that don’t know Lulu is a company that offers self publishing services for independent writers. It’a print on demand website for books, calendar and other similar products. It’s also one of the biggest companies in this industry and thus offers the possibility to then sell your book though Amazon and Barnes n Noble.
While I like the awesome services it offers, prices are not the best and the site is full of bugs and customer support is overwhelmed so don’t expect much help or any help from there.
I’m currently looking into other companies to see what other possibilities I have while I wait for my booklet to get into Amazon which will take between 6 to 8 weeks.
See the representational video for the booklet here:

Thanks for reading and wish you all an awesome day!
So I’m summing up in this post the milestones and rewards that are going to come.
For those that are new, know that I give away merchandise and illustrations for my followers and or subscribers from my various social media channels as a thank you for their continued support. Thank you ! Your are awesome and your support means a lot to me!
In the past I’ve given T-shirts, books, stickers, badges, fridge magnets, paintings, digital illustrations , discount keys for the shop and so on. Use the hashtag #HisameOCL to find out what has been and what is current.
So at the moment I need to get to 100 subscribers on Youtube in order to get the better layout for my channel so I will be giving away something when that happens. Feel free to make suggestions for gifts. They will be awarded randomly so you have to be a current subscriber and respond when you win, otherwise , the prize will have to be given to someone else.
Other approaching milestones : 1k followers onTsu, 2k followers on Facebook, 500 followers on Twitter. So if you follow me on any of these channels lookout for giveaways 😉
