You may remember my post about my Dad having written his Mother's biography a while back, and how I had tried in vain to get it published, and in desperation I set up a webpage and published it online. Cream and Miss Understood both suggested that I self publish with LULU so I had a look and decided to go ahead.
It was really easy to do with comprehensive instructions to follow, though I had to do all the formatting, page numbering etc., with a choice of paperback or hardback - I chose hardback, and best of all it's free! After I clicked the publish button I ordered one copy so I could make sure everything was ok.
Here is the result
I'm thrilled with how it has turned out. I have set the price for just the cost of printing, we are not interested in making any money out of it, the sole aim is that it is available for people to read. I have now ordered another three copies - one for each of my boys, as a sort of 'family bible' and one which I hope to send to the British Library - where they keep copies of all books published in England. As Kit is published in America I have emailed the British Library to ask if I send them a a copy will they include it.
I took the book and gave it to Dad today and he was over the moon to finally see it in print. He has kept his promise to his mother and I have kept my promise to Dad to get it published for him - we can both rest now!
