Simplify the New Author's Spotlight Page

Status: Heard this before

The old Storefront page was so clear and simple - one cover picture per book title with print or download options to click on. The new Spotlight page is terrible, especially if you have more than one book for sale. I have thirteen book titles, and now that they are available as print, EPUB and EPDF, instead of having one page with my different titles clearly shown with their different formats on one page, I now have five pages, with the different formats of my books spread out all over the place. My Spotlight page is totally confusing, and if I were a customer thinking of buying one of my books, I think I'd give up just trying to sort through all the mess. Lulu will sell fewer books unless they simplify the Spotlight page, and make the format like the old Storefront page which worked perfectly. Why should something that worked be changed into something that doesn't? That's not progress.

But I thought the old Storefronts where more 'complex', and this is way people do not like the new Spotlights.

So what you are asking for is to be able to list things in the order you wish, as you could in the old Storefronts?   Yes I agree and so does everyone else!

My name is Janet Bond and I wrote the book Janet's silent prayers and writing from the Heart.  My problem is I have not really been selling any books because I don't know how to get them out there any suggesting.
