Now, I've been annoying vocal in my original desire to get Undead and Inhuman (or really any of the recent book ideas I've had) out into the world through a separate blog, but using a service such as Lulu has some other benefits that wouldn't be available to me through the former.
Maybe the biggest benefit is simply getting my work out into the market. I put a lot of hard work into improving myself as a writer, and like anyone else who's exerted such effort, I'd love to see something tangible come out of it. If I published Undead and Inhuman on a separate blog, it's just...Christ, how can I even put it into words?
It just isn't the same. Yes, it's out in cyberspace, but to me it feels no better than spraying graffiti on a building. I guess I want to be able to look back on this particular story and say, "I did get this published, not that I just piddled with it online. I actually went out and made it into something a little more real."
