Big whoop. Lulu already offered iPad self-publishing from Day One... and actually before Day One on a private beta.

It's still so HARD to create ePub documents.... I mean, as in you have to create these crazy XML files and such from the last time I read up on it. Not like saving out a PDF file... more like making a website of sorts. Has that changed yet?

Adobe should quit their bitching about Flash and work on a good ePub workflow!! grrrr

Yeah. I read the initial announcement about LuLu, probably around the time Brad did. It is quite exciting. And was my main reason for getting an iPad....

Then I discovered just how bad Pages is on an iPad. *sigh*

With some advice from drewprops I am now working on a screenplay though!

I didn't realise that!

But I did honestly know about it in early May.
