Code.Blog Code Talk for the Game Developer

I don't know how many of you out there like writing, but I tend to love it (probably why I have a blog, write tutorials, and constantly am looking for new stuff to write).  About 2 years ago (probably closer to 3) I published my first small book through LuLu.com.

LuLu is a great site if you want to publish a work of yours without having to go through all the application processes and such that are normally required with a work being published through a publishing house.  Granted, it is a few bucks more expensive to print copies of your book (considering it is print on-demand), but well worth it when you get that shiny covered book in the mail.

I'm working on 2 other books to be published on LuLu as well as a companion CD-ROM for one of the books.  You can check out my store HERE.  Like I said, I only have one book on there and it's got loads of mistakes, but it is a free download, so if you have time check it out.  Let me know if you've got some stuff on there as well, I'd love to check out some other authors!

I found this site to be extremely disappointing. After I spend days and days putting together a cookbook that I wanted to give as a Christmas present, a bug prevented my book from being published. I notified LuLu over and over again with e-mails and it took about one e-mail a day for a month for them to get back to me. Now 5 months later they have finally addressed the problem and I can publish my book. The idea of Lulu is one that I like but their service lacks professionalism. They have very poor customer service.
