Oh by the way Colby, you have Derf down as a 'Very literary half-elf' in his description on the Characters page. Just thought you'd want to know!

Hello, I was just wondering...have you ever thought about using Createspace/Kindle Press to self-publish your Lint collections? Might have a better royalty system than Lulu. Createspace is the print on demand arm of Amazon. I think they do graphic novels since they can do illustrated books. They can at least do the novellas.

There is also Smashwords for ebook editions of your graphic novels. I'm not entirely certain about the technical details of printing/self-publishing graphic novels. I've only done regular novels with Smashwords and the CreateSpace/Kindle Press companies. But I do think it's possible to set up with the right files.

However, I think Lulu's costs to print a book are higher than Createspace's costs. So more of a royalty is available to the author on Createspace than Lulu from purchase price. Plus I think Lulu's distribution might be worse.

And ebooks might be an idea as well. Kindle Press has 35% (purchase $0.99 to high) and 75% ($2.99 up to $9.99 with some provisions) royalties on ebooks. And Smashwords has the ability to create multiple formats for multiple distributors like Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Apple, plus fairly high royalties as well.

I don't know about your feelings on the matter, especially with Amazon, I was just wondering.

No problem. Look up Kindle Comic Creator if you want to go the ebook route there.

It looks like I can produce the books for a lot less and therefore can charge less over at Amazon, so thanks a lot for the tip! I'm currently working on getting everything transferred over and will order a copy and make sure the quality is decent.
