Why does Fulfilling take so long compared to Amazon?
I published my new poetry book on the 20th and ordered a proof copy and now it's the 25th and it is still Fulfilling! I wanted a copy by the 28th where I'm reading at a Festival but now it seems I'll have to read from printouts.
I don't understand why it takes so long to print. Post yes 1-3 days but printing is on demand. When people order my other books off Amazon they get it the next day, if they have prime, or a couple of days normally but the thing still has to be printed and processed yet they can do it in less than a day. So why does Lulu take so long?
Am I missing something here?
