Love the military pics in the background.
They're all cute puppies 😍
I'd love to hear what LULU does to promote the books on their platform. Do you do any marketing on behalf of authors??
Also, what layout program software do you recommend? I know there's a mac-based Vellum but I need an easy to use PC-based program.
So format are the type of book (cookbook, comic, etc.) or the layouts?
Will the slides be available?? Great information
Reminder: Please post your questions in the Q&A box
And yes, slides will be shared with the recording later today!
How long do you recommend between hardback publication and paperback?
When you showed the pages of the book, they didn't seem to fit on the page. Should we assume it fit?
Can you print it just for yourself and THEN open it up to broader publishing once you put your own eyes on it and make sure there are no errors?
Since it's a pdf file, can you lay out your book in Pages (Mac)?
yes, I hope they talk about layout programs, both mac and pc
Is it possible to move from private access to global distribution?
How do direct sales factor into “number sold" counts that amazon and others in the industry use to "track” book “success”?
InDesign is the industry standard for book design.
What is "in design” ?
Elena H Houlihan, Puerto Vallarta
Working with a graphic designer, we had trouble transferring my ms. in Pages (which I love) into InDesign. I had to export everything to Word which coordinates better with InDesign. Maybe that interface has been fixed, but I don't know.
Anybody know what “API” means?
API= Application Programming Interface
it's a computer programming term!
What is an NFT?
NFT=Non Fungible Token, which is essentially a digital version shared through blockchain (complicated stuff!)

It's important to note that the page count is not the manuscript page count, bu trather the final formatted .pdf page count.
IS THE PPT AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD?
If we use Lulu direct to sell print books directly, are there sales tax considerations? That's on us, the author, right?
