Please link to printed books listings from e-book listings

Status: Heard this before
by thetroth on ‎10-03-2011 09:15 AM

Before all our PDFs got converted to PDF e-books, the pages for each book had a button to click that said "Also available as a File Download", and the pages for each PDF had a button that said "Also available as a book."

Now, on the new pages listing our e-books, there is no link allowing customers to have the option of buying the printed books.

I know, I know. . . print on paper is like soooo totally, like, yesterday, duuude. But my customers -- the ones that aren't repelled by this Geocities-circa-1998 "Author Spotlight" thing -- actually like buying printed books, and I want them to have every available option to find them.

Is there any way this can be added? Or is Lulu determined to go the way of Facebook and periodically screw the people who provide the content that makes it worthwhile in the first place?

thetroth, thanks for your note. Linking eBooks with paperbacks and hardcovers is a request we've gotten from many other authors and we're considering it for the future. Thanks for using Lulu!

I thought that was there last week.

It's not there now.

Would someone at Lulu please find the person who's been coming up with all these alleged "improvements" and politely, but firmly, tell him (or her) to stop before he makes it any worse?
