What is ‘POD’?

Print-on-demand or ‘POD’ publishing is how all Crooked Rib publications will be produced.

Basically, it is an environmentally friendly and independent way to produce and distribute books.

The process is simple. You write, design and complete the book. Then you produce a PDF and send it to your chosen print service provider, in this case Lulu. Other providers include Blurb and Lightning Source. The print service provider then produces the book for you to proof, and once you are happy with it the book is then produced and printed only when a customer wants to buy it. So you don’t waste money or paper, making it an easy and environmentally friendly way to produce your own books.
