Turnaround time for hardcover?
I'm close to getting my book ready for print (I just need to finish the cover at this point), and it occurs to me I may want to make this available in a hardcover version as well.
This book will be 8.5 x 11 in softcover by default, and I have no plans to try and deal with places like Amazon - they will be available for order through Lulu only (but may make arrangements to have a few copies placed for distribution from one bookshop).
What is the turnaround time for hardcover compared to similarly sized softcover volumes (the two proofs I have ordered have taken about one week each - half for printing, half for transit, looks like).
Would I be able to reuse the existing cover / inside PDFs for the softcover or am I better off tooling up to produce a separate hardcover edition?
