Sales plummet?

The fairly consistant monthly sales of my books have disappeared entirely since about February, 2013, after almost six years of at least spotty sales, enough to bring in money for all my "treats" in life. I find this especially suspicious. I, of course, do not fancy myself as an author at the top of the book pile, but this turn of events has me very concerned.

What has changed at lulu????? And am I the only person experiencing this.

Perhaps you've saturated your market.

Hello Evestudio

What types of marketing / advertising have you done since the sales dried up?

I took a look at your account and I see that you have one print title in distribution the remaining print books are only available from the Lulu marketplace. It also appears that all of your previously available eBooks were retired (hence no iBookstore money).

Glenn, I retired only the previous revisions of my books as I made changes to them, etc. If what has happened inside the lulu site, retiring all my final books too, I can't think I did that. I do see my ebooks on Amazon, in the lending library, a move I did not make. (To have them in the lending library).
