If your library has an Amazon account but has difficulty ordering from Lulu, or if you just prefer Amazon for various reasons–free shipping, whatever–you’ll be pleased to hear that there’s now a CreateSpace edition of Give Us a Dollar and We’ll Give You Back Four (2012-13) at Amazon.
Same price: $21.95 paperback.
As you can see from the image here, the cover is entirely different (other than the author and title, and even there the typography’s wildly different): This is one of CreateSpace’s stock covers, very different from Lulu’s stock covers.
There’s even an ISBN for this edition: 978-1481279161 (or for traditionalists, 1481279165).
The interior is absolutely identical: It’s the same PDF file.
But wait! There’s more!
Coming soon (probably Tuesday, 12/18)
Want to have the book for your Kindle?
You can–as soon as Amazon’s Kindle Direct Program makes it public. That’s supposed to be in the next eight hours in the U.S., within three days overseas.
At that point, a search for “Give Us a Dollar and We’ll Give” should bring up both editions.
The Kindle edition is $9.99 (the KDP program offers very strong incentives not to charge more than $9.99).
It looks pretty good. If you have a 7″ Kindle, you’ll probably need to go landscape for some tables, but for the DX or Fire HD 8.9, it should work fine as is. Yes, there’s a live table of contents. Some day soon, I’ll do another mini-tutorial for the Micropublishing book, describing what’s now a pretty straightforward process to turn a fully-formatted Word book into something Kindle’s happy with.
