Freebies for self-publishers

Two self-publishing services are currently offering freebies to authors: Free "Published By Lulu" service for a "limited time." This service gets your book distributed to online bookstores (and theoretically bricks-and-mortars bookstores). Lulu is the publisher on record.

CreateSpace, run by Amazon. Free "Pro Plan" through July 31. This gets your book onto Amazon's U.S. site, with a higher percentage of earnings than CreateSpace's regular plan.

Dusk Peterson writes fantasy stories on friendship, gay historical fantasy tales, and contemporary gay fiction. Occasionally, a heterosexual love story will appear as well. Peterson's stories are often placed in dark settings, such as prisons or wartime locations. Romance and friendship, especially male friendship, are recurring themes.
