Lulu.com Took Advantage of Me, Didn't Pay Royalties Raleigh North Carolina
In 2009, I self-published a book of poetry through Lulu.com, having agreed to terms & conditions and a royalty rate. After setting the price at $11.95, and paying extra for it to be sold on Amazon.com, I was very embarrassed when on the first day of sale it was steeply discounted to $8.95 and less. And also on the first day, other sellers in the "used & new" section on the Amazon.com page had a copy they were selling for $500.
After emailing Lulu.com about this, they said that was their prerogative to set the price at whatever they felt like.
Nonetheless, I sold 72 copies of the book, and Lulu.com has not paid me one cent in royalties. After trying to contact them multiple times, I was ignored or received short dismissive statements. I removed my book from publication, and now I'm filing a Ripoff Report on them.
If you are an author considering putting an important book out, please avoid Lulu.com at all costs. I do not want anyone else to be a victim of this demoralizing scenario perpetrated by the lowlife predators at Lulu.com
