As many on the list already know, this is exactly what we have done. We
have an arrangement with LSI and others for the printing, etc.
Unfortunately, the problem lies in getting orders placed with our
publisher to the printers for order fulfillment. Suffice it to say that
we have been making repeated efforts to get a response from our
fledgling publisher, thus far without results.
When people order from Amazon or other booksellers, these go straight to
the printer, and this method is working well.
