If you publish your work on lulu will it be in stores??

I was reading this website Self Publish a Book on lulu Step by Step

after I watch the video, I'm wondering since my book will be sold all over the world (that what is said in the video) will it be in stores

    Your book will be in stores around the world -- only if you can convince each store to accept the book on consignment.

    Lulu does not place the books in stores.

    Note: I self-published a book of only local interest. I convinced a half dozen or so stores in town to carry the book on consignment. I went back to each store monthly to collect the 40% of the retail sales.

    Needless to say, I did not break even on this deal.

    That may be true -- but it will cost you money.

    Laruen -- write the book first. Don't worry about publishing it until you have a finished and polished manuscript!

    besides it's for free

    Publishing is free. Distributing and selling the book is not free.

    After you've written, proofread, edited, and polished a couple of chapters, I'll be glad to read it and comment on them.
