So, here are the pictures. I wanted to change the page numbers which were a bit large and change the text on the back (I am not very good at ad copy).
TOG 1.5 is available in hard cover at LULU for $29.99 for the HC and the the softcover will be coming soon at $19.99.

So, I took the plunge and put Tales up on LULU. Some things I was not surprised by:
- I needed to pay for a proof. Kind of ticks me off a bit but hey, I have dealt with worse.
- Some elements were not properly laid out. This is a difficulty when dealing with automation over dealing with a person in printing. I will adjust and hopefully the final version will be good.
- Man does it look great! Hardcover, 240 pages, good paper and clear printing. I have dealt with LSO (the guys who do the printing for LULU) before. In fact, the printed the soft cover of Tales about 10 years ago. That was a pain. Also, a vew of the LULU folks approached us at GenCon a few years back and the smaples they handed over were great.
Things I was surprised at:
- An HC priced at 29.99 that I still make a decent profit at via LULU.
- It got here in about 10 days. I was expecting it sometime in January.
- By the Gods, the cover is beautiful!!!!
So, all in all a pretty good experience. I will be posting pictures soon.
