Oh dear thats a shame. I have three more books that I was thinking of 'Lulu-ing' but desperately need them to be on Amazon by February.
My only alternative is to do it the hard way and get them self printed which is a real pain - ordering boxes of books - buying packaging - sending them out. Groan!

Dear Wendy -
If your aim is to have Lulu print them and not Amazon/CreateSpace then one option is to take the orders on Amazon by making yourself an external seller of the book. Then when you get the order in for a book, go to Lulu and order a copy and have them send it directly to that buyer. That way you're not dealing with piles of books in your house or shipping material or anything else. The book goes right to the buyer. Lulu has always been amazingly fast for me in terms of book turnaround, so there shouldn't be an issue in that area.
I do have piles of my Weddings & Courtships books in my house, and I manually ship them. I don't recommend going that route. They take up space and are a pain to deal with.
So the direct-mail is an option to consider.

Are you wishing to be on Amazon because you will sell more? That is simply not the case unless you advertise your books by many methods. But as I already said, you can do that with your own Spotlight on Lulu right now.
