  1. This video is on point. The Pen Women Press of the National League of American Pen Women, Inc. can publish you chapbook for a lower cost that popular commercial publishing companies. Visit NLAPW.org

    I do not recommend publishing with lulu. Contrary to their publicly announced royalty rates (the rates on lulus web page) they DO NOT PAY the amount they promise. Always less. NOT HONEST, money thirsty company. It would be wise to be away from lulu.
