Yesterday I received my first payment from Lightning Source. It came exactly when they said it would and I like that in a compay. Sure it only amounts to a few hundred dollars, but it will be more next month, and more the month after that.
This business model works for me. Yes, I could go out and get a couple thousand books printed, put them in my garage, and ship them hither and yon.
As I have said elsewhere, I have limited time. And in that limited time, I need to write, market, and sell. Yes, I could make more *if* I could sell all of those thousands of books. One thing to know is that many of those books never get sold. Every single one of my books gets sold whether through LSI or the boxes I buy.
