    Very helpful and informative. I published a novel on Lulu, "Hearts of Fire" by Durrell Owens. I'm about to self publish a book of short stories on Lulu after my manuscript returns from my editor. I'd like to suggest that if you have time that you do a video on marketing your book after publication. As you said, Lulu has global distribution through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Thanks again for your instructive advice and good luck to all of you novice writers. Writing is really the easy part of the process. Remember imagination is limitless!

    Your video is so full of useful information! Well done on book publishing at such a young age, such an achievement! I self-published my first (photography) book which includes photographs and narratives from the time of Covid-19 called 'Lockdown Living 2020'. I'm currently selling it on my website and just did a Vlog about it.

    Congrats again on your book! 🙂
