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

  • Question (plz read) -

    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!

    i know i know!

    besides it's for free

    publishing on lulu is for FREE

  • Question (plz read) -

    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.

    Thank you

    then how come on the site there was a chart on types of distributions:


    ibooks (Apple iBooks - Readers may purchase your books on the iPad, iPhone and other Apple devices.)

    Barnes & Noble’s NOOK Book Store
    Readers may purchase your books with the Nook and Nook application.

    Your book will be made available in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain stores.
