Buying your book to re-sell
First of all apologies for probably re-starting this discussion, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere.
I have just published my first (and probably last) book using Lulu. That's not a reflection on Lulu, by the way! It's not been approved yet as I'm still in the review process, but when it is I'd like to try to sell a few copies at my local post office, tourist information office or pub (it's a local history).
My question is - will I be able to buy, say, 20 copies from Lulu and then try to re-sell them myself. What about Lulu's commission? Is there any way I can buy the books at manufacturing cost + commission?
I believe I can mark the publication "private", but I would still like to sell the book to other outlets using Lulu.
Any help would be gratefully received, particularly if it's in words of one syllable!
