Lulu Puts ‘Free’ in Freedom of Expression
Month-long promotion offers authors a free first copy of their books
February 15, 2010 [Raleigh, NC] — Calling all freethinkers, freelancers and freeloaders. Join Lulu’s month-long Freedom of Expression event and get a book — for free.
In honor of President’s Day, Lulu, the open publishing pioneer, will give new and existing authors a complimentary paperback or hardcover copy of any new work they publish on Lulu.com between February 16 (hey, it takes at least a day to write) and March 16. All that’s necessary is an idea, a manuscript and about 10 minutes to publish. Once complete, Lulu will send a coupon by e-mail to cover the cost of printing the first copy, up to a $25 value.
It’s all part of Lulu’s commitment to creative freedom. Lulu empowers creators with a diverse array of products and services to make their ideas real and share them with the world. Through Lulu’s publishing, market and social book discovery platforms, creators retain complete creative control, profit most when they sell and reach targeted readers with known interest in their works.
The best part: It’s always free to publish. And now, for a limited time, it’s free to print, too.
So leave ol’ Honest Abe in your pocket. Let George Washington chill in your wallet. And, by all means, don’t disturb Ben Franklin. He’s got at least 100 better things to do.
