Is there a place to look up all the contest entries? I would love to see what other people wrote and it would be nice to see a count on what I posted. People would get a lot of hits and rates, not to mention that it will allow new comers to see that they even have the talent to enter.
Thanks for your time.

I doubt that any comp will alow that. It is normally only the winner's efforts you get to see. It does make you wonder what they will do with the entries though.
BTW. Who is judging them? (I have not entered.)
PS: David, are you only at Lulu to enter the comp? Or have you created another account just to enter the comp?

It's interesting how some people who were not 'clients' of Lulu know more about this comp then those who were/are! Apart from the scanty mention of it on Lulu's site, where else has it been publicised? (It's a shame the same effort is not put in to promoting the media already for sale here.)
And Ken is right. How many, after they have submitted their 600 words (or multiples thereof) will continue to publish here at Lulu after the comp? Very few I would bet, and yet we have to help so many of them through the process of making their file work, and how to actually enter the comp!
Not just that. The comp is flooding Lulu, B&n and Apple with possibly 1000s of 600 word 'books'! But to what purpose?!
To be honest, because of the way the comp is put together and with whom, I think it is just a data collecting exercise.
Have I entered? No, the prize is not that attractive really. Now if the prize was a full set of adobe software and a 22" 'gaming' laptop, then ...
