Who do you use for P.O.D.
I’m confused! And I still have questions, as do others.
Some of my questions have been answered when it comes to how much it will cost, the different distribution channels, and formatting, etc. I have used Createspace for two of my books and have learned one very valuable lesson when it comes to print on demand with them.
Never, and I mean never, publish in full color! I added one small picture on the interior 1- 1/2 x 2 inches that I wanted in color and it jacked the cost of my book WAY up! I couldn’t sell it for less than $48.00! Yikes! And once you choose full color and hit publish, you can’t change the interior. It’s considered a done deal. So I had to go through the entire process again with a different ISBN to publish in black & white.
Lesson learned, but I was wondering if Lightning Source was the same way. If you have color photos inside, will it jack up the price by as much as Createspace did?
Another question that another author had asked on one of the writer’s groups on facebook was, “Do I have to be a publisher to publish with Lightning Source?” I told her no, but when you go to create an account on Lightning Source there is a box for company name.
So…My question is, “Do I have to create my own publishing company to publish on Lightning Source?”
If anyone can help, I’d love to hear your suggestions, helpful hints, and your experience with the different Print on Demand companies.
