The thrill it must emanate to see your work in print and wonder and ponder of all the lives that it may touch in
many different ways. As of 12:30 pm today, a copy of your book according to 'tracking' has landed in PA and will be
delivered to me on Thursday.

The beam on your face with book in hand was a wonder to behold. It only gets to Amazon after I approve it for distribution.

But I need someone to actually LOOK at the new version before I can approve it for Amazon. Those are the books going to AREI, which Lulu tells me was delivered on Aug 20th.

Yes, the book were delivered and some sold as well. I have things I wish to add to the new addition and we received a very good message on Divine Love mediumship just recently. So maybe best to wait for the rewrite. I'll be working on that this coming week. Never a dull moment around here with more company coming for the weekend then you know who later next week. And I thought that I was retired :? . Good to be working in this way though. God bless........Al
Endless journey,endless Love.

Hi guys,

Can you enlighten me? Are there reasons not to publish with Amazon?

Mind you, I think the book needs quite a few revisions!! But still I'm curious!

We are planning to launch an Online Divine Love Mediumship program Friday, April 3 on Zoom. I will be posting more details soon.

Kind regards,
Jeanne
Stay centered in Divine Love and expect miracles to happen!

Hi Jeanne,

My reason for sticking with Lulu is three fold:

1. They never hassle you over copyright. Amazon as you may know has driven Christian to distraction.

2. They print all round the world so I get - or used to - my books printed in Australia. Cheaper postage, faster delivery. But they just cancelled their Melbourne printer. If they don't replace them, I would have a different view. The last book that got printed in USA was shipped - yes it was - to Sweden where it was re-shipped to me in Sydney.

3. 90% of my book "sales" are books I buy. They give "owners" a very decent discount. Amazon does not. I can also of course list on Amazon using Lulu as my distributor. But if it does not sell well, it ends up being recorded "out of stock" on Amazon. I can also add whenever I have had issues Lulu support has been fabulous.
