I printed a personal copy of my book


#41

I thought it was. They give you a template to input your manuscript into that makes formatting a bit easier!


#42

Thank you!!


#43

Wow, thank you so much! It really is a great feeling, and I recommend anyone do it!


#44

It’s gorgeous!

I can’t wait to know the feeling of holding a book in my hands. I never thought to make my own copy. :black_heart:


#45

Thank you so much!

When you’re ready to print something for yourself, I definitely recommend it. I’ve had my copy for three days now and I can’t stop holding it or looking at it! It’s really a spectacular feeling!


#46

Matte is the shit :slight_smile:

@MakaylaSophia I’ve heard good things about LuLu. Definitely worth a look later in life :slight_smile:


#47

I really liked it, personally. Not sure about publishing through them, but the printing is great.


#48

I’ve read up and down things with them publishing. More good than bad of course, but it’s definitely worth researching :wink:


#49

thank you for posting this, this is so cool!


#50

That is badass. I’ve heard of Lulu, and although I’d like to sell on Amazon e-books, I want one printed copy of each of my polished novels. Of course, I need to do covers I’m actually happy with. I’m so bad at them lol. Yours looks so cool!


#51

I just can’t wait until my books are printed like this. I’m getting so impatient haha. Your book is making me all excited. I have to wait a few months until tax season though. I’ll have finished a few more books, gotta then finish formatting the chapters I haven’t moved to documents. Then I can print the finished ones at once. Ahhhh! Dude, I am just getting so excited.


#52

Can you print one copy of a book?


#53

Can’t speak for other similar companies, but with Lulu you can. I have one copy of two of my books. You basically set up the layout and the cover as if you’re going to sell it, order a proof copy, and that’s it.


#54

I would definitely recommend checking out Lulu, then!


#55

Aw, I’m glad it’s making you excited! When the time comes, definitely show us how it turned out!


#56

Yep, @prisim said you can! I only got one copy of Awaken!


#57

Ha, I will definitely be showing everyone how it turns out.


#58

That’s so cool! I can’t imagine having my own hard copy of my own writing. I think I would keep it with me forever as my pride possession, and show it off constantly. :smile:


#59

Could you print it without getting an ISBN?


#60

Yes. You’re not making it for sale.
