Wideman Reveals Son Led Him To Self-Publisher Lulu

US author John Edgar Wideman, who recently decided to self-publish his latest book using Lulu, has a personal article in today’s Publisher’s Weekly Soapbox blog. While Wideman has spoken extensively on using Lulu for his book, Briefs, the article does reveal that it was actually Wideman’s son, a writer and Lulu employee, who suggested the self-publishing service.

“Here’s where my son Daniel Wideman (a writer himself) enters the picture. Dan works for Lulu, a successful self-publishing firm. After I described my Briefs project, he convinced a father who’s not exactly a Luddite, but who still employs ballpoint pens, pencils, and yellow pads to write his books, to investigate the array of seductive, intimidating options available for introducing a new book to readers.”
