    The chances of getting my work out there will be close to zero without self publishing, so that's what I will do when my time comes, even if it's solely an electronic product.
    I know this is unlikely to have much of a market, but I will be aiming for a short publication of a certain type of poetry.
    I don't expect to make money with this, but that's not what it's about: my goal is to experience a piece of the learning curve before I attempt longer pieces.

    You should start a thread and talk about marketing on Lulu. It would make for a good thread.
    The trouble is that my marketing techniques aren't useful to most people. The book I'm talking about's a nonfiction work that retails at US$26 a copy and is sold via internet marketing or at face to face gatherings to the small community of people who're extremely nerdy about a thing that I'm also extremely nerdy about.

    What I did was find a group of people who're willing to believe that I'm a subject matter expert, and who're prepared to recommend my book to each other as the state of the art, authoritative text on a very specialist thing.
    I can love my fellow man, but I'm damned if I'll love yours.
    Just because I don't care, doesn't mean I don't understand.

    But how is Lulu different from Amazon for marketing? How did your book's price compare to createspace? How were they to publish with?
    Details...we need all the dirty details!
