Setback number 2
OK, I have promised myself that I would remain calm...
It looks like the first of my very shiny ISBNs will have to be abandoned...
Because I have changed the format of my book AFTER having registered the title with the Nielsen Agency (I really should have waited to do this, but at the time I thought I had everything sorted out!) it looks like I will have to assign a new ISBN to the same unpublished book as format is not something that can be changed without moving on to another ISBN...
UPDATE 07/08/2012: Nielsen have just emailed and because the book hasn't appeared on the database yet and hasn't been published, there is NO NEED TO ABANDON THE ISBN! That's good to know! So we can get on with the whole thing without any distraction! Phew.
Also, after having worked out the cost and retail pricing thingy for Lulu, I find that I will have to sell my book for quite a high price if I want to do things properly and with an absolutely minute profit on each sale...
Did you know that there is a wholesale price and a retail price, the latter being the equivalent to wholesale price X 2? I didn't...
It's a big adventure...
I have now postponed the publication date even further to November 2012 to be on the safe side!
Remain ... Calm ...
