I'd still prefer to try one of the more compact versions rather than US trade this time. I admit I don't sell a lot of print books, but when Lulu offer free shipping, as they do from time to time, I alert friends to this. Would I be right in thinking that even if the pocket and A5 sizes are only printed in the US that any free shipping offer is still on? And yes I am in the UK (my spelling of 'colour' is a dead giveaway!)
I'm concerned that if I use one of the other format sizes that the interior will look a little stark if printed on flat white paper. Is it plain white such as inkjet paper looks or is it an off-white like most paperbacks? Has anyone else here used these other two formats for a fiction book and been happy with the interior appearance? Thanks in advance.
