I think they are in too much of a rush, so they don't have the patience to do it correctly, or simply do not understand how to.
The video goes a little fast, but I guess I could figure it out.
I have not really looked at it, but I assume it can be paused.
Who are the book announcements for anyway?
Other authors already on the forum?
It does only seem to be a section of the forum and not also part of the Shop areas.
I don't understand what good it will be doing once it's two pages down from the top.
Do consumers browse through the book announcements looking for something to buy?
I doubt it because it's not part of the Shop. I have often wondered how the New books are picked, though, that feature on the opening screen of Shop. They are not literarily the latest books published on Lulu. They look far to professional for a start. What is shown also seems to be country specific. There's also a pointless claim there that Lulu is the World's Largest Independent Bookstore. It may be, but unless Lulu advertise that fact elsewhere it's irrelevant.
