I published my book a couple of weeks ago and purchased a proof copy. (4 further copies have actually been sold!!!)
I now wanted to opt for free Global Reach distribution and if I click on Manage and then the option to use Global Reach, the system says that I am eligible. However it appears that if I proceed I am expected to buy a proof copy after agreeing to join.
Does this mean that I must buy another copy from Lulu or does my original purchase suffice?
